I love Dogfish Head beers because they have never been afraid to branch out and do something a bit different.
I have been on a quest to taste all of their Ancient Series....
Hmmm
I could have passed on this one.

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.
