2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Kenny Road Market, poured into dimpled mug. Pours surprisingly light in color with a dissipating white head. Aroma is medicinal and herbaceous. Flavor is sweet with more herbs and some added spice, a little bitter cocoa present as well. Light in body. I like this experiment by Dogfish Head, just not this beer. the Sahtea is much better. Try that one if you can.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Marked as Bottled in 2008. The aroma is stale, woody. Pours a cloudy copper/orange with small white head fully diminishing and no lacing. The taste is a light bitter. The body is medium the texture is creamy a little thin, the carbonation soft and the finish a short bitter. I really liked this beer before, so obviously it has been aged too long.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle share at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is honey, concentrated apple juice, mild hot cocoa. Taste is kinda herbal with some spicy / peppery bits but actually had some mild Belgian yeast spice qualities to me. More interesting in aroma than taste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Overall just kind of meh.

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
