Poured a dark brownish with a fizzy head. Smells earthy and the taste matches up with it. Very carbonated. Reminds me almost of a wine. Cannot put my finger on all of the different spices. Nothing is super distinct. I like the overall taste though. Would come back to it again.

Doesn't really taste like most of the listed ingredients, but very good regardless. Paired with curry and pork.

Appearance - Served in a snifter, the beer with amber in color with a white head crowning the glass.

Smell - Smelling the beer, I would swear I just walked into a humidor and I cannot afford these cigars.

Taste - There are a lot of things listed on the bottle, I really can't distinguish any of them. There is a Middle Eastern spiciness to this one. It makes me think a cardamom. There is also a certain smokiness that reminds me of a cigar. The beer is peppery, though not particularly fruity toward the finish.

Mouthfeel - The peppery sensation gives this one some bite. Though it is not particularly thick, I would not call it an easy drinker.

Overall - I generally do not like Dogfish Head's ancient beers, but I like this one. It does not match the description on the bottle, but I like it.
