750ml bottle. Pours a clear deep amber brown color with a one finger off white foamy head. Aroma is sweet banana, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, brown sugar, and clove. The taste maintains the banana character, as well as the nutmeg and caramel, and adds a touch of light cocoa powder and a hint of hoppy bitterness. The body is a fairly light medium, with lightly moderate carbonation and a very smooth.

Thanks to WorldWideStout for sharing this interesting beer. A: Pretty clear, light brown hue with little head and no lace. S: Subtle smoke, nuts, malt. T: Decent tasting - a bit too sweet for my tastes. There is a nutty aspect to the flavor, but itís not especially prevalent, given the name of the beer. Itís difficult to think of this as a brown ale. A loose interpretation for sure. M: Too thin, average carbonation level/feel. D: Iím glad I tried it. It was certainly interesting. One small serving was plenty, though. This is definitely an "off-centered ale".

Clear dark amber beer. Small off white head. Light semi crisp palate. Typical Dogfish Head left field. Sweetish malt and a plantain vegetal edge morphing into bubblegum sweetness. Riding alongside all of this is smoky malt. Any carob is subtle and on the back of the tongue. Sweet! Different! Dogfish Head!

Old Review from 2010 - Pecant pours clear dark amber. Two finger frothy light tan head is poured. Lacing throughout the glass as you drink. I said this is a different Brown Ale and right from the start you notice it. Of course itís like a lot of Brown Ales in one way. It has a nutty aroma but unlike a lot of Brown Ales this has the pecan-wood smoked malt and that comes through really nice. Mixed in there is a caramel sweetness. But for me the smokiness shined through most for me. As it gets warmer the deeper smoke aroma pops out more. In the taste the smokiness still reigned for me. It just added another level of depth to the beer. Mixed in there was a bready malt taste and some fruit. This was probably the Plantains talking. You can never say DFH uses normal ingredients. I love how they go out on a limb. Once again as the beer warms up a bit it gets more complex and the ingredients get a deeper and more rich taste. By the end of the bottle you can tell the smokiness was just hanging in the back of the throat. Mouthfeel is smooth and dry. Medium to full bodied. At 6% it goes down easy and is a very good sessionable beer.

bottle from justin 1/31/11. pretty much orange/brown with an off white head. aromas of sweet maltiness, brown sugar, a touch of smoke, toasted nuttiness, vanilla, yeast and some peppery spice. sweet and rich on the palate... too much so for 6%... lots of vanilla, dates and brown sugar with smoke, nuts and yeast behind that. slick mouth feel with a medium plus body. it does manage to get better as it warms. 7/3/6/3/15

Bottle 750ml. @ PBF 2011

ABV: 6.3%. Clear medium to dark amber orange colour with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to light beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, light smoke, light rubber - plastic, light plantains and carob. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, smoke, strange maybe the plantains and carob ! Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20110701]

Thanks a ton to bobbypaulson for the hook up! 750ml dated 2010. Poured at 60ish degrees into a DFH signature glass. A - Very nice brown body with a lasting off white head and some nice lacing. S - Lots of smokey flavors. Toffee, caramel, and just a hint of sweet earthy bananas. The smell is very savory. T - Huge wave of smoke and sweet malts. Iíve eaten plantains before and I get that sense, although its basically just a glorified banana. Carob...I looked it up and Wikipedia said it could be used as a chocolate substitute and is slightly sweet. There is a hint of cocoa nib sweetness which I guess is that carob. Quite tasty. The mouth feel is well carbonated, but still meaty enough for the big savory flavors. O - Iím not a big fan of smoked beers, which this beer is essentially. It does have the nice smooth nuttiness of a brown ale though. Thankfully the smoke is fairly mellow and blends quite nicely with the other flavors. This is a great collaboration, and it has held up well with age. Its also a bit refreshing to see a DFH beer that doesnít have a crazy high abv and taste like syrup (even though thatís part of why I love them so much...)

Bottled (thanks thomassova4!). Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is wood, some mild fruity and mild brady notes. Flavour is sweet malts, mild leathery notes. Also some quite nutty notes once it warms up.
