Dogfish Head description from website: Our latest ancient ale is based on a beer the Etruscans of ancient Italy would have been drinking around 800 B.C.. It's made with pomegranate, raisins, hazelnut flour, capelli senatore (an heirloom grain), 3 types of honey, gentian root and tree resin.
Enjoyed at the brewpub in Rehoboth Beach, DE
A: half finger head on a murky golden brown body making me think of old bananas.
S: very musty malts with medicinal grape and strawberry hint of menthol as well opening the sinuses a bit.
T: again very metallic and medicinal with grape notes lingering deep into the aftertaste. Opens with a nice malt profile moving to a very spicy and fruity finish.
M: medium and creamy body and moderate carbonation.oily, coating the palate.
Overall: this is a strange and unique beer that grows on you as consumed. Worth trying as is the case with most in this series.
Serving type: on-tap
