look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Label says 332A14.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Sudsy, semi-resilient lacing leaves large clots behind.

S- Initial soapy aroma gives way to an incredibly unique bouquet of herbs and spices. One thing I want to note in particular is how much the celery leaves and herbs come through in this beer. Peppery, fumy and slightly sharp.

T- Then, once you taste it, you know it's old bay. However, it's not so apparent that you don't feel like you're drinking beer. The malt and the slight hop presence are there to support the melange of flavors that come with the spices. Mild heat. So easy to drink given the unusual tastes that are present. Cayenne pepper, paprika and maybe some chili powder.

M- Slightly sharp and kind of thin but this is the category that is most crucial to the pairing with seafood that will inevitably ensue as a result of this beer's special ingredient. You don't want a heavy or thick beer to be the background to the old bay. Medium carbonation and a light body.

O- For the record, I'm not an old bay fanatic. I really like the seasoning but I'm not one of those fiends who thinks spice is great in any context. I was initially skeptical about the drinkability of this beer but I gotta say that Flying Dog has nailed it. This beer pairs well with tilapia that has also been seasoned with old bay. I would also really like to try some shrimp tossed in old bay or of course some crab and old bay to go with this. Outstanding.
