The nose is spectacular. There is a malty bearing on the nose that promises richness and depth. It's sweet but not cloying. It's rich but not too nutty. There is a brilliant hop character on the nose that is at once both vibrant and restrained. It is as though a bountiful fruit character wants to explode from them but instead you have a perfect floral sweetness. A succulence that is the essence of the hops it self without embellishment. There is a bit of spice or pepper to the nose that is firm but not too loud.
The mouthfeel is incredible. Smooth, full of flavor and yet light. It travels with ease over the palate with the grain sporting a bit of dapper complexity even thought it does not evidence many flavors. It has a layered sweet presence that deepens and enriches the beer. It is also a dry grain that takes the mid palate. There is a bounty of hops on the palate that never evidence any fruit you can name although they seem ready to burst forth. They are sweet and delectable in and of themselves and their restraint is no loss to the perfect balance of this beer. Smooth. No bitter although you can taste the bitter from the hops subtly as if a shadow. A touch of alcohol lightly grazes the palate and it's finished now.
This beer is pristine and wonderful. It is brewed with care and expertly in accord with the purity laws of 1516. A masterpiece waiting to delight you with it's malt richness, with the bounty of the hop flower,clean and crisp as much from malt as from carbonation. Excellent!

This pours a muddy brown color with a slight beige head. The aroma is slightly malty but that’s about it. It has a very interesting malt flavor to it. There are hints of caramel as well as a little sourness. Lot of unique, hard to describe flavors to describe, but interesting never-the-less.

A: Poured from the (cool) swing-top bottle into a SA Perfect Pint glass. Color is a solid brown with large carbonation bubbles visible at the bottom of the beer ascending to what starts as a nice one-fingered head. The head slowly dissipates to a somewhat rocky-lacing type foam, a few big bubbles, most small.
S: Nose is notes of roasted malts, a slight breadiness, caramel sweetness and dark fruits. I'm picking up some notes of dates and maybe figs. A nice overall toasted quality.
T: Similar to the nose, those the caramel, malty flavors dominate with some nuttiness in the mix. A light amount of hops are present as well.I don't really pick up anything else that is particularly noticeable.
M: Very slick, almost oily, fairly viscous with a fair amount of carbonation that works quite well with the light hoppiness and maltiness. Alcohol is noticeable, but not particularly aggressive.
O: Delicious. I would get this again, quite tasty, enjoyable, and drinkable.

Classic flip top bottle served in a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Why not?
A - Dark ruddy brown with a small tan cap that slowly dissipates.
S - Sticky dark malts, raisins, dates, cooked caramel, dark bread, molasses, deep malt aroma, honey sweetness, really yeasty as it sets.
T - Follows the nose with big dark bread malt, sticky dates, nutty, burnt/charred fig bread, vanilla, spicy hops adds some peppery bitterness. Sweet and rich caramel, with a wheat cracker like dryness overtaking the sweetness. Grassy hops and dark bread crust create a dry rustic finish.
M - Rich feel, chewy body, carbonation is right on, dry spicy finish.
Awesome! Sweet and rich but with a sweeping dryness. Spicy hops really showed up to combat the deep dark bready malts. I loved the sweet nutty caramel malt seemed sweet but actually was not. Almost like tricking your brain. Great layering effects and a standout brew for sure.
