First brewed in 1995 on the day Jerry Garcia Died, and is named after one of his guitars. This complex multi grain ale is made with a blend of ten types of malted barley. The spicy hop character comes from select German and Czech Hops. Served unfiltered to allow maximum flavors for your enjoyment.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
On tap at the Grad in Davis, CA. Poured a deep red color and smelled of clove and spice. Sweet malty flavor, but lack of carbonation really took away from the experience. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (2249) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Poured into an imperial pint glass. Beautiful finger and half of off-white head on a dark red colored body. The aroma is nice but faint. Caramel and dry barley. The taste heavy on the malt but not too sweet. There’s a little hit of lemon bitter in the middle. It finishing long and dry. The texture is thicker with low carbonation. Very enjoyable.

Slight astringent and alcohol. T-floral and malty. Mild ending with subtle malty finish that lingers as it diminishes smoothly.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle via Jason + Elizabeth. Pours a medium brown color, off white head. Nose is big, caramel and candi sugar, raisins, and just a hint of the rye. Body is medium, surprising in its lack of malt. Finish slightly tart. Very interesting, can’t complain.

Ibrew2or3 (8159) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2012
22oz bomber pours amber with a quarter inch tan head of foam. The aroma has a bit of roasted malts and malt earthiness and then some mild spicy to floral to earthy hop notes. The taste is pretty rich with modestly roasted malts and then a mix of spicy hops, earthy hops and a mineral note. To midway the roasted malts grow a bit and pick up a sliver of floral hops into the finish. This has big flavor that comes together pretty darn well.
