Bought a bottle at Julio's...what a mistake. Poured in to my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a crystal clear honey hue with a one finger fizzy head that fades quickly to leave no lacing and a minimal halo. Bleh.

S - Yep, goddamnit. A combination of fruit leather and real leather. Fermented honey sweetness, fruit skin, and earth.

T - Taste is super sweet, with lots of old stale raisin, super musty basement/earth/dirt, syrupy, and herbal.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, helps keep the syrup up off the tongue.

O - Overall this was a waste of money. Absolutely awful. I like some of DFH's Ancient Ales but this is not one of them. Not even close.

On tap at Hay Merchant in Houston.

A: Pours a clear amber/red. A one finger white head forms, and fizzles out in a second. Light lace is left behind.
S: The kitchen cabinet. Pepper, other nondescript spice, honey, light fruity flavors. Grainy, sugary, flour, literally powdered flour. No structure, just a mess.
T: Again, a mess. Lets see, black pepper, honey, fruit, corn, sugar, again flour. Like the stuff you cook with. What the hell is this? An aspirin like powdery flavor, I assume more freaking flour...what ever.
M/D: A medium body that is low on the carbonation and thin. Very powdery and chalky. While the alcohol is nowhere to be seen, this is just not something I care to drink.

I am glad I only tried a small snifter, and did not pony up for the ridiculous bomber. An absolute mess, and I have a hard time believing this has any resemblance to any "ancient ale." Just a waist.

Just by the copper appearance and sweet notes on the nose I thought this beer was going to be another interesting find from DFH. Unfortunately this is out of bounds for my liking as the pomegranate, raisin, tart profile is extremely sweet for me and not something I would drink again.
