Notes/Commercial Description:
This Ancient Ale is a modern take on a 9th-century Finnish beer.

The wort for Sah'tea is caramelized over white-hot river rocks, and the beer is fermented with a German weizen yeast. In addition to juniper berries foraged from the Finnish countryside, Sah'tea is flavored with black tea, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and black pepper.

The spicing is subtle and balanced, and Sah'tea is a highly-quaffable, truly unique brew with a full mouthfeel.

this shatea has a pretty amazing flavor- the juniper berries and black chai really push through this beer. the smell is super packed with the chai smell. it does have chunks in it, and i know that some beers have chunks-but personally im not usually a huge fan, however the flavor of this beer is so exotic and complex that ill take em. this beer is the reason i love dogfish- crazy beers that when they hit the mark are a hug success.

A: Beer pours a golden orange body with a thin white head that quickly fades away quickly.

S: The smell is absolutely amazing! Tons of spice, like clove, cinnamon and syrup.

T: The beer has tons of clove flavors with some cinnamon and tea.

M: There is a bit of carbonation on the back of the throat and tip of the tongue.. Has a thin body too

O: This is a fantastic beer all around! I would love to get this year round if I could
