330ml bottle poured into a tulip by freshness date.
Upon the pour, it yields a deep golden showcase with massive fluffy white crown that stands with exceptional retention. Let the time fly, the head slowly sinks to decent foamy layer covering atop along with plenty of spotty and patchy lace. Rather high carbonation pushes the wave of eternal bubble to run actively towards the crest.
Unique aroma from yeast by a combination of a fruity, estery, phenolic and spicy note also with a trait of dough and malt residing.
Besides of the malt in the background, there are a sweetness and fruitiness building up from its fruity ester that also generates some tartness and sourness cut through the edge of the palate sensation. Complexity and balance are derived by a load of phenolic spice. Alcohol is slightly warming and sweet but is well concealed while hops reveal at last with a slightly bitter end.
Creamy smooth mouth feel from its sturdy carbonation, the body is medium to bold with some lively crispness and a dry finish.
Great brew without any question, there are many details in many aspects to get as a gimmick, not even the beer quality itself but also with the unique label and bottle design. Love that.

I've enjoyed a fair share of DT over the years. I've had it both on tap and in their ceramic coated bottles. I recommend having it on draft if possible. The bottles are sometimes off and the flavor just isn't the same. With distribution from Europe, you have no idea how long those bottles have been sitting in a hot New Jersey warehouse.
In it's prime, it pours golden with a beautiful head. In bottles, yeast will be at the bottom of the bottle.
It doesn't smell nearly as good as it tastes. Smells of ale and slight sweetness.
Taste is fruity, spicy, and very sweet. In its prime, I taste banana, orange, coriander, cinnamon, and molasses.
Overall, it's a great beer. I like the overpowering sweetness. It's something I can appreciate with food or by itself.
