The aroma is super smokey with some sweet notes. The color is syrupy amber with a small head. The flavor blends smoke and sweet malts very well. The pecans influence the smokiness immensely.

(750ml bottle thanks to JJFoodie) clearish orange/amber with an off-white head. Nose of smoke, bananas, and some caramel. Taste of banana, nuts, caramel, and light smoke. I see what they wanted to do, but it wasnít that well executed.

Bottle. Ok Bros, lets see how you do at brewing. Wrath of Pecant pours a clean light red color with a white small head. The aroma is smoky with hints of bacon and salmon. I kind of am not wanting to drink this. The taste is smokey with some residual sweetness. I was expecting some nutty notes but was really dissappointed. No evident taste of plantains or carob. No lacing to mention. Light/medium mouthfeel. Overall, not a beer I would seek out to ever try again.

Bought a bottle at dogfish. It poured a nice dark amber color. Had a nutty malty taste. Finished with a smokey aftertaste. Not worth traveling to Delaware for.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
For once, a DFH beer didnít blow me away. Unfortunately, Iím not too impressed by this one. It pours a dark amber color with a huge tan head that leaves massive amounts of lacing around the glass. The aroma has some roasted maltiness to it, along with some earth, toasted bread and nuts. The body is very smooth and drinkable. The flavor I couldnít really get passed, though, was the smokiness and sweetness in the finish.

Caramel malts with a nuttiness and hints of smoke. Pours a reddish amber with a solid white head. Chocolatey with caramel slightly nutty with hints of smoke, very creamy. Very nice beer!

From a bottle poured a darker amber color with a small amount of head. Smokey spicy flavor with a lingering finish.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2010 This beer poured a clear gold brown in color with minimal head but had had a very light aroma ... roasty malt, nuts and some smoke - but mild. Flavors are simple ... some brunt fruits, wood and earthy notes and a subtle smoke taste. This has some unique qualities that I really like and recommend people give it a try.

2010 Bottle - Thanks JohnGalt1!!! - Pours a clear copper with a medium off white head...aroma is malty, dried fruit, smoke, slightly sweet, burnt toast...flavour is lightly smoked, cocoa/carob, toffee and sweet malt...perhaps the most subdued DFH brew Iíve tried, not much going on, and what is going on seems a bit disjointed...

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: A very nice looking pour--a crystal clear amber color with a fluffy off-white head on top.
S: Not a very intense nose, but a bit of smoke and some sweet toasted malts. A bit of fruitiness to go along with some bread.
T: The smokiness of the beer really dominates the flavor, and prevents the full enjoyment of it. After the smoke fades, a slight banana/plantain sweetness comes through on the finish. There is a hint of bready malt and some caramel in there as well.
M: A medium bodied beer with a moderate level of carbonation. Maybe a bit thin.
D: Perhaps a nice idea, and nice of DFH to make this beer for EBF, but not quite what I was hoping for. In any event, Iím glad I got to try it.
