Poured a cloudy hazy orange gold color with very little head. But it more than makes up for it in taste. Such a smooth tasting beer. The aroma is amazing. As it warms u get a great scent of honey. Dogfish has hit a homerun with this beauty.

Deep , amber color ; big , white head which quickly disappeared. Strange aroma of cocoa , honey , spices and malt. it was a case where my nose and eyes didn't agree )) , because my nose expected something dark . Cocoa and honey in taste , with distinguished chillies notes . Dry finish , and some pinching in mouth (obviously chili pepper ). Unusual and interesting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. It’s an unclear, orange-colored beer topped by a minimal sized white head. Spices, a light funk, fruityness and some dried apricots in the aroma. Some alcohol notes in the far back. It’s full-bodied, lightly warming and with a nice carbonation level. Rather dry. Nice bitterness in the flavor, which else consits of the same fruityness and funk as in the aroma. And the spices, that lasts a good while. Not really fond of them, it’s a quite strange combo. Still, it’s a nice beer. 150621

Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma is carob and light molasses. Taste is molasses first the something like carob & malts. Agreeable but not awesome.

Growler from the likka store. Poured into snifter. Moderately hazy orange color, small white head. Nose is cocoa and sweet malt with a light vegetal thing, like green pepper, some black pepper as well. Taste is cocoa and honey with a light bitterness. Slightly buttery. Low carbonation. Overall just kind of meh.

Draught @ Dogfish Head Brewing & Eats, Rehoboth Beach, DE
Pours hazy cloudy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, dried fruits and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long malty, fruity and a faint hint of chili. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Aroma is pale malts, mild chilies and a hint of chocolate. The flavor is pale malts, chocolate, fruit and a mix of tart, sour and slight but increasing heat in the finish.

Tap - small foamy head, clear light gold color, not picking up much of an aroma, but definite chocolate malty flavor with a mild hit of chile spice in the back, pretty smooth finish considering, very good and different overall

Old rating. Cloudy orange color. Grainy with honey, spices, orange peel, maybe a small but if chocolate. Kind of bubbly and weird. Just okay.

A cousin of Midas Touch. Despite the cocoa and spices, the initial aroma is grapes and the fruity odors dominate the entire tasting experience. This is a smooth, tasty fruity beer, but not quite as complex as the ingredients might suggest.
