COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Working with our archeologist friend Dr. Pat McGovern, this beer was created to incorporate the ancient ingredients and techniques described in Egyptian hieroglyphics. It was brewed to 11.4Plato with Emmer (an ancient form of wheat) and loaves of hearth baked bread and flavored with dom-palm fruit, chamomile, and zatar. Fermentation was carried out by a native Egyptian saccharomyces yeast strain captured by Sam and Floris during a recent trip to Egypt. ABV went from 5 to 4.5%.

yngwie (16819) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a white head. Spiced aroma with some cellar notes and dried fruits. Berry hints, Medium to full body, very soft on the palate. Some tea hints. The flavor has pale malt notes, dried fruits and tea. Herbs. Well, its interesting, thats for sure, but its definitely not my kind of beer, sort of blending good and bad beer. 130804

brokensail (16342) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 19, 2012
The pour is a very clear golden color with a short lived but tall white head. Smells strongly of cereal and grain, but very clean. Lots of bread, maybe even some corn bread, and tons of wheat. Maybe a little bit of yeast, too. The flavor is more of the same. Quite malty, but not overly sweet. Very bready with the same wheat and corn bread flavors. Some yeast as well. Medium body with medium carbonation.

mcberko (16253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of mint, chamomile, grains - very bizarre spiced mix. Flavour of weird, weird spices: mint, chamomile, grains, skunk cabbage and weird herbal qualities. This is not good at all.

jtclockwork (15757) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2012

bhensonb (14748) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Capped 750 from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy dirty golden amber with a foamy/creamy white head. Aroma is slightly toasted bread? Med body more or less. Flavor is like crackers. Its really a different beast. Moving massive stones for pyramid? Hey boss, give me more of this. There is some hints of herb and citrus, but in so far as beer is liquid bread, or liquid crackers more accurately, this is the beer. Most of these strange DFH ales leave me a bit off. This is just captivating.

Ratman197 (14226) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2012
750 ml bottle poured a clear golden amber with a lasting off white head. Aromas of chamomile, fruittiness, bread and spice. Palae was medim bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, chamomile, spice and light fruitiness with a crisp lingering spiuced finish. Not bad, but another overpriced Dogfish experiment to pay for Sams Egyptian vacation.

Tmoney99 (14100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate dough malt, tart fruit and herbs aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium herbal bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a soft one of a kind beer.

Scopey (13745) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Tap at the ColLAboration Winterfest 2012. It pours light orange, with a thin foamy white head. The taste is hay, straw, floral, dough, herbal and spice (particularly cumin). The taste is hay, herb, spice, pepper, honey, sweet orange fruit (apricot, mango and nectarine), straw, floral and dough. Medium body and fine carbonation. Easy going, but unexciting.
