Thin off-white head of varying sized bubbles. Kind of sloppy. Decent carbonation. Aroma of smoked jerky meat, roasted grains and some sickly sweet malts. King of bockish in aroma. Color is a dark orangish brown. Dry and slighly chalky palate with more smoked meat, tea leaves and some roasted grains. A bit of strange fruityness I guess is from the plantains. Differnt flavors abound but they meld pretty well together. A pretty decent beer fom DFH!

Bottle at the brewpub. Pour was light brown to more of a yellow-orange color. Large pillowy head, retention pretty strong. The aroma was smoke, caramel, and nuts. The flavor followed with too much smoke, which over-ride too much of everything else that could have been going on with this one. And, as with many a DFH brew, there was an annoying malty sweetness underneath. Mouthfeel was full to slightly sticky.

Aroma:I get caramel and wood smoke in the aroma. Appearance:This beer is caramel colored, with big fluffy off-white head. Taste:The sweet foretaste is of malt, caramel, and pecans. The aftertaste is pleasantly smokey. Palate:This beer has a light to medium body, and is a little creamy. Overall:This beer is a real pleasure to drink, with great flavor and tons of complexity.

(bottle - 750 ml) Acquired this one in a trade. Copper pour with a thin tan head. Sweet and candy-like aroma with lots of malt and some fruit hints. Flavor starts off very sweet and malty with a mildly smoked and chocolate-like middle. Definitely comes from the carob as thereís a much stronger bitter flavor that comes up in the aftertaste. I like the mild smoke and nutty flavors from the pecan wood. Couldnít really detect the plantains though.

Bottle bought and shared at Rehoboth brewpub. Light brown pour, lighter than would be expected from a brown ale. Nice nutty aroma. Flavor was a pretty drab brown ale with a hint of smokiness and nuttyness thrown in. The carob seemed to add a significant sweetness. Bottle served at just perfect temperature and as it warmed further got a little too sweet.

750ml Bottle: Aroma of pecans, light caramel, malt, light brown sugar, and light banana. Poured orange in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, rocky, tan head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Ok lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of malt, light spice, light menthol, pecan, nuts, carob, light leather, smoke, slight caramel, and light Bamburg wood. Medium body. Dry, lightly sticky texture. Average carbonation. Malt, pecan, slight caramel, smoke, and slight Bamburg wood finish is dry and sticky.

750mL from DFH Rehoboth Beach. Iím not a huge fan of brown ales. And Iím not a huge fan of Dogfish Head. Hell, Iím an even lesser fan of BeerAdvocate. And just downright hate everything about Boston and things that happen inside of it including EBF. So this is an easy shoe-in for my least favorite collaboration beer of all time. But for some reason, I love this beer. Itís not too intense. Itís not a super imperial double eisbocked barrel aged brandy bourbon calvados rum weasel poop cask festival special edition bottle 1/15. This is a soft, normal, beautiful, simple beer that happens to be lovely, understated, and outstanding. The pour is clear, reddish amber with a rocky, dense, yellow head that has excellent retention and sheety, sticky lace. Aroma is phenomenal: brown sugar, fresh tropical fruits, platanos maduros. Taste is rich, boozy, malt-forward, brown sugar, platanos, sweet but not cloying, soft/creamy mouthfeel. Almost like a bock beer. Palate gets a little bit thin after awhile. Still, I loved it!

Bottle at DFH Rehoboth Beach, courtesy of tarheels86 - thanks! Dark amber color, large tan head with great retention. Aroma of fried plantains, but I wouldnít have guessed that if I hadnít read the description. Taste is caramel, chocolate cream pie, scotch. Interesting.

Courtesy of northernbrews. Copper, nice head. Aroma is a bit muddy but dig it. Smoke, wood, pecan sweetness, nutty, big residuel sugars. Flavor much the same, smoke comes through more, dominates up front, back end is all sweet pecan syrup. Bit sticky on the palate. Strange, props for the effort.
