Had this today on tap at the Portsmouth Brewery in Portsmouth, NH. It was left over from their Dogfish Head dinner that they hosted a few weeks back. I had never tried it before and wasn't sure what to expect.
The beer was served in a tulip glass and had a very small head by the time it arrived. The beer took quite a while to arrive, which may have been the cause of this.
Color was like a medium brownish leather.
The smell was interesting. It had a spiciness to it that reminded me a little of a spicy chai tea, though it was not overwhelming.
Taste seemed to start off with a slight sweetness but with a spicy finish. Overall, it was good but not exceptional. No single taste seemed to stand out too much over any other.
An easy drinking beer that I wouldn't mind trying a second time, but wasn't blown away by at the same time.

Pale straw color with a somewhat hazy tinge to it. decent enough head going on. Aroma is ok-rather plain considering the spices that I read have been added. The flavor was nothing special at first but as I consumed my pint a very nice, spicy, interesting meld of flavors came thru. Pepper, coriander and a slightly fennel taste. Moderate curry notes as well. By the end of the glass I could almost convince myself I was having a curry dish. Decent malt against the spices. Somewhat earthy. What at first seemed a fender bender of a beer came out quite nice. Really held up well. Good body,somewhat dry finish wise. A drinkable and enjoyable beer for the most part. Once I saw this was a biere de garde it really changed my perception. Funny how a name can change one's perception. Worth a shot-you might enjoy it more then I did. Could not make a night of it though.
