750ml bottle. Pour was a dark brown with a small tan head with small carb bubbles. Aroma of coffee, cocoa, honey and caramel. This is a tasty one. I get a good stouty chocolate up front that splashed a touch of honey on the back end. Overall, its a pretty good beer. Not something I could drink a ton since its not my style though.

THis was a good beer and the best out of the experimental series from DFH. Nice roasty and earthy flavors come through and balance out the sweet flavors which are expected with both the style as well as the ingredients used. Very well-done.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured and drank from a snifter. At first pour this is very different than any beer Iíve had. It had a this head that was very light, and I could audibly hear it fizzing like I had just poured a soda. However, the head dissipated quickly. The color is dark and carmely, much like a cola. I can smell hints of chocolate and a bit of honey in the nose of the beer. This beer tastes chololatey like a stout, with a sweet and clean finish. The mouth feel is very light despite the dark color of the beer. Overall this is a very good beer that I would recommend to my friends. Another fine example of why I love the adventurous approach to beer that Dogfish Head takes.

Bottle poured into 2 glasses, shared with my brother. I wasnít sure what to make of this beer since I donít know what any of the ingredients are except for honey. This smells like an abbey beer but drinks like a creamy porter. Good honey sweetness in the flavor. I dig it!
