The last pint I got to try at my first visit to the DPH pub. Great smoky aroma to this one. Taste is also smoky but very flavorful. Some great nuttiness and the fruits come through, and the roasted flavors make for a great, well-balanced beer. Not quite as good as the 75 Minute, but was the second best beer I tried and the uniqueness of this one makes it worth a try,

From 750mL bottle to tasting glass at a NoVA Beer Tasting on 10/23/11
*From notes

-- Thanks for supplying this one, Bill --

A: Meh - simple leathery brown hue. A decent pour yields a dissapointing .75 finger head and minimal lacing.

S: Smoke. A bit nutty too. Hints of toffee and malt peek through here and there.

T: Just too much liquid smoke for me. All the delicate nuances of what a Brown Ale should be are decimated by SMOKE SMOKE SMOKE!!!! Come on gents, it's called balance. Where are the plantains and the nuttiness from the pecans? It's called "Wrath of Pecant" for God's sake. All I get is smoke and mirrors (see what I did there?)

M: Oddly oily. A bit undercarbed and thin.

O: DFH's Wrath of Pecant was one of the more dissapointing beers at the tasting. There's a total lack of balance here, and for someone who doesn't like smoked beers (but knows a good one when he tastes it), this was hard to get down.

If you're gonna do a smoke/rauchbier, please cut down on that hedache-inducing liquid smoke essence, and find a more complex and flavor enhancing smoky profile.
