COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Malt Liquor brewed with hominy, huitlacoche (corn smut), dried Peruvian corn nuts, poblano chiles and green chiles. For each of the last eight years, Dogfish Head and BeerAdvocate have teamed up to brew an extreme collaboration beer to be poured at Extreme Beer Fest. This year’s beer, an American Malt Liquor, began to take shape over a lunch in Denver during the most recent Great American Beer Festival. Flash forward to early December, and Sam, Jason, Todd and brewmaster Tim reunited at Dogfish Head’s Rehoboth, Del., brewhouse to turn a recipe into reality. Since Malt Liquors generally include one or more adjuncts—especially corn—this beer starts with a simple foundation of pale base malts and incorporates hominy (which is typically used to make grits), huitlacoche (corn smut), dried and roasted Peruvian corn nuts, poblano chiles and green chiles. Fittingly, hop additions were kept to a minimum.

Style et résumé: Une liqueur de malt avec mille patentes.


Comment: EBF 2016.


Portrait: Une robe dorée translucide. Un nez et une bouche au piment fort avec de l’alcool en prime. Une bière pour jeune écervelé (comme j’ai déjà été). Une fois ça suffit.


Note: 6/10

Golden color with a small, white head light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toast, corn, booze, peppery alcohol. Taste of sweeter toffee, corn, spicy chiles, and alcohol in the finish.

Big fucken jug of malt liquor served with mydudes, just now. Pours clear gold. Chilies come out in this Juan big Tim. Definitely a sweet bastard on the tongue. It has some obvious creamed corn. A touch of booze. Just a hint of chili heat. It’s not bad but I’d rather an 8% Canadian malt.

La réunion entre une liqueur de malts avec des céréales épaisses et le feu partiellement intense des piments et poivrons et sans aucun doute d’autres choses qui m’échappent car inconnues par mon cerveau qui n’a que très peu de références à ce type de trucs qui structurent cette grosse bière faite pour cogner là où il faut que ça cogne. Sans aucun doute une belle expérience que cette affaire peu facile à boire mais amusante par sa grossièreté.

Another min-growler from awesome trader slvrmon82... Shared with the tasting group over the weekend... Thanks Matt! Pours clear golden with a flimsy white head... Chili flavor and aroma is more than present, but the heat only really gets big later on in the glass... Pretty sweet, but not cloying. Definitely not my cup of beer, but I’m sure they achieved what they were shooting for. Body is slippery... Curious if this would be any better on draft.

Bottle share, thanks johngalt1. Clear golden yellow, small white head. Viscous pepper nose... That’s about it. Tastes is actually a little sweet and moderately hot. Maybe minorly hot. Vdirty pepper heat and corn syrup. Not that bad.

BuckeyeBoy (8568) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Growler pour thanks to Toby. pours out light hazy gold topped with a small head. nose is peppers heat sweet malts. Taste is more of the light pepper notes lots of sweetness and a corn note. This has a metallic odd note.
