Served out of a 33 cL bottle into an oversized red wine glass.
A: Light, golden honey; it poured with a thick white head, which slowly died to a medium lace with constant bubbles running up the center. Later, as I poured more--even while trying to decant--solid yeasty globs flew into the glass.
S: Earthy, mild hops with a strong sweet bread aroma. In addition, there is a mild fruit smell... maybe grapefruit?
T: Musty sweet bread with a crisp, rustic twang of bitterness. Again, there is a mild fruit character haunting the effect, but I can't place my finger on it.
M: Clean and frothy, while a bit of it laces your mouth.
D: This is a very drinkable beer. I'd almost say it's sessionable.
Overall, the taste is a little too mild for me. This almost comes off as a saison.

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.
