look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Slightly hazy orange copper with a big long lasting tannish head that leaves quite a bit of lacing on the sides of the glass.

S - Light smokiness up front with fruity esters and dark malts. Little chocolate and toasty malts.

F/M - Cocoa, fruity flavors, maybe the plantains? Or maybe the power of suggestion is truly a force at work here. Dark malts for sure: raisiny, pruney and a little bit of roastiness. Smokiness comes through mid-palate and lingers beyond the finish. Mellow hop bitterness is accentuated by the smoke and roast. Full bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Dry finish with a lingering smoky aftertaste.

D - Good. Full flavored and almost easy drinking, but the smokiness gets to be too much after about a pint of this.

Gotta say, the pecan element of this one is a bit of a trick, in my book (of course, perhaps my expectations were the only issue here). Yes, the brew is aged in pecan wood barrels, but the flavor that's actually introduced is far more about smokiness than about pecans or nutiness. Not sure if I had a bad bottle or what, but the smoke definitely overwhelmed all the other flavors (could a bad bottle make that happen), although there were hints of caramel, nuts, earthiness and a touch of molasses. Not a bad beer, just certainly not what I was expecting, and not remotely as interesting as the vast majority of the "big" DFH brews I've had. Too smoky to drink in high volumes.

Really cool extra from seans86. Thanks dude! Poured into a snifter.

2 finger yellowish colored head sits on top of a ruby/brown semi-opaque bodied beer. Head dies down to a ring clinging to the edge of the glass and some light foam on top. Good lace left behind.

A really interesting nose on this one. I get nuts, hints of chocolate, cinnamon, and fruity (strawberry?) esters. Quite nutty smelling which is nice. Can't really stop myself from sniffing this as it is a truly unique bouquet.

Taste is of bittersweet chocolate and some cinnamon. A lot of nuttiness, and a slight smokiness. Also, some lactic sweetness, and a hint of banana. A leafy hop bitterness on the back end. Interesting.

Mouthfeel is light, and well carbonated. A touch creamy.

A challenging, complex, and interesting brew. I finished the 750 ml bottle myself, but I wouldn't want more than that.

A - Two fingers worthy of tightly packed slightly fizzy batter-like light khaki colored head... Modest retention give way to rich frothy lacing with an even thicker collar... A light rich caramely brown color with a faint orange hue... Small bubbled sluggish carbonation throughout...

S - Pastry dough... Diacytel... Bread pudding... Faint banana... Faint brown sugar... Golden raisins... Very mild touches of wood... Quite pleasant, but a tad on the subdued side...

T - The taste is exactly as the nose would lead you to believe... Light brown sugar... Golden raisins... Banana... Faint caramel... Sweet bready malts... A vague nuttiness... Subtle wood characteristics... The finish has the slightest hop bitterness deep on the back of the tongue...

M - Medium bodied... Slightly sticky... Even and consistent... Slightly lush... Minimal carbonation... A tad on the rich side... Slightly creamy...

D - Super quaffable... A tasty slightly unique offering from Dogfish which should come as no surprise... Shares a lot of characteristics with the Marzen style... I recommend and would gladly drink again... Loaded with flavor and personality, especially considering the 6% ABV...

A-Very light brown ale. Big bubbles, off white head. Good head retention. About half a finger that hangs around. Nice lacing slides slowly down the glass.

S-Yummy! Smoked malts, a little banana and the carob adds a little sweetness that balances this out and makes it smell delicious!

T-Sweet and banana-y with the smoke coming through in the finish complimenting the beer. It's very balanced and definitely the best brown ale I've ever had.

M-Very smooth. Appropriately carbonated.

D-For some dumb reason I took this to a bottle share. Should have kept it for myself! It was delicious and I could of drunk 2 bottles of this.

Thanks very much to RomanW70 for bringing this back from his trip to Delaware. Pours a translucent copper (extremely bright) with a thin white head that quickly disperses into a soapy skim. Mild nose - the only thing I really detect is a subtle presence of carob towards the back. Taste starts out a bit smokey (not what I expected), almost rauchbier-like in character. A little bit of carob sweetness follows with perhaps a suggestion of plantain to round it all out. Mouthfeel is light-medium, with a mild, even carbonation and a slight slickness to the feel. Decent and interesting but not something I would seek out again.

Picked up one pint and 9.4 fluid ounces of this impressive brew at the DFH Milton location on the last day of my girlfriend and I's vacation. Was our first time visiting the wonderful oasis that is the brewery and tasting room that lies in the middle of Boringtown, Delaware(sure it's not that far from Rehoboth, but I crossed 80 farms and 20 abandoned farms to get there). So when we entered I noticed the Wrath of Pecant, and was intrigued right away since I have never seen this brew on store shelves before. I was told by the bartender about the smokey taste and smell and use of the plantains and carob. Was also told that I would not be able to pick up this creative concoction anywhere else but in Milton, DE. My curiosity had piqued, so of course I had to buy this interesting ABA.

Poured into the DFH Signature Glass.

A: Pours light brown, nice carbonation, has a nice stream of bubbles coming up from the DFH nucleation laser etch. Had a nice thin white head.

S: Smells tasty. Smokey, like hickory chips. Some dried apricots. A little brown sugar and raisins. Something breadlike too, can't put my finger on it.

T: Tastes even better than it smells. Lots of good woody smokiness. Just like being in front of the grill with hickory chips over top of red hot charcoals. Hints of fruit, probably the plantains. Also some nuttiness. Just a very well executed combination of flavors and aromas for a smokey beer. Some alcohol is noticeable when it gets warm, but when cold not noticeable. Carbonation is low on the tongue. Finishes very nice with even more complex wood and smoke flavors.

M: Feels nice on the tongue, but can coat it, causing it to feel kind of thick at times. It is a little chewy. Overall this beer is a joy to roll around the tongue and pick up different notes of flavor.

D: Very drinkable, especially for a Smokey ABA. Tons of complexity going on here, both in the smell and taste. The slightly low alcohol (6.3%) is a nice change from the high levels the DFH ales usually have. But when it gets warm the alcohol becomes more noticeable and can create a slight warmth. Making it almost seem like more than a 6.3.

This is really an exceptional ale, and another brilliant idea for an ale from DFH(and the Bros) that pushes the envelope on ingredients and flavors they can create. I hope this brew will eventually become more available in the near future, as it deserves to be.

My fiance picked me up a $7 bomber of this when she was down in Rehoboth, fresh from the brewery. Awesome to have this rare brew in hand.

A: Pours a light brown with plenty of carbonation in the glass (there's lovely bubbles cascading up the glass at all times, a very lively brew) with a perfect one finger head that didn't dissipate an iota through my entire glass.

S: Not a lot going on on the nose, which I found surprising. Slightly smoky, but really just an autumnal brown ale aroma dominating the nose. Does not give much of a clue as to how it'll taste.

T: Here's where the beer shines. It could certainly be a bit more over the top in terms of the flavor, especially because it was brewed for the purposes of being unusual, but the earthy sweetness of the plantains and the nutty pecan smokiness on the aftertaste make themselves known. A very clean finish, and no alcohol presence whatsoever. Goes down like cold water. Certainly lacks the assertive robust flavors of the Indian Brown ale or the bizarrely over-the-top qualities of something like Immort Ale.

M: Lovely. Smooth, goes down easy. A shame this isn't going to be a staple for Dogfish Head, because if it were sold in six packs it'd totally be a session beer (but don't get any ideas guys - your Indian Brown is a WONDERFUL beer).

D: Doesn't get any better than this. Tastes great, goes back easy. Very drinkable beer.

Bottle. Wrath of Pecant pours a clean light red color with a white small head. The aroma is smoky with hints of bacon and salmon. I kind of am not wanting to drink this. The taste is smokey with some residual sweetness. I was expecting some nutty notes but was really dissappointed. No evident taste of plantains or carob. No lacing to mention. Light/medium mouthfeel. Overall, not a beer I would seek out to ever try again.

Bought a 750 ml from the brewpub in rehoboth beach.

Very complex beer. If you could bottle smoked gouda this would be it. Can taste nut, and smoke.

Nice amber appearance. Pours with a decent head with a bit of cling to it.

This is a chef's delight in terms of pairings with food - would think it would be great with any beef, and smokey cheeses....

Pours a light brown with a slight orange hugh and a slight bit of haze. A dense but thin layer of head develops and stays around for a good amount of time. Leaves just a hint of lacing as it subsides.

The nose is incredible. Just a hint of wood in the beginning. Followed be caramelized brown sugar followed with a fruity sweetness. The bigger sniff you take the more plantain you get in the nose and the smoke steps back.

The taste is so complex... first sip you take you get a big flavor fo banana/plantain, followed by toasted sugar and chocolate notes. Just a touch of malt sweetness but not enough to take over as the main flavor. Finishes with a nice dry and mild wood finish. Very drinkable... and at only 6% you could drink a bottle of this by yourself no problem.

Browns tend to pair very well with BBQ dishes...but I think this beer would be great along side a bananas foster! The similar flavors in the dessert would just increase the flavors in the brew so much more!

750 mL bottle purchased when I visited the brewpub in Delaware, poured into my Duvel tulip.

The beer pours a nice brown/amber, with red highlights when held up to light. A three finger off white head quickly forms, but retention is poor. The beer does leave fairly nice lacing down the side of the glass though. Nose is fairly straightforward but not bad, it smells of roasted pecans and a whiff of smoke. The flavor is a little bit more interesting, as splash of caramel kicks things off before giving way to the pecans and finishing with just a bit of smokiness. The body is great for a beer of it's size, enough heft behind it without being too big, but I'd prefer if the carbonation was toned down a little bit. The fairly malty flavor and solid mouthfeel make this a very smooth drinker. I'm glad I had a bottle, as the idea was interesting and definitely well executed, but it's not the kind of beer I could see myself drinking regularly

Pours a firm cap of foam that sticks around for the duration, and it sits atop an amber/copper/bronze color that is just entrancing.

Aroma brings in a nutty smokiness (no surprise, as pecan wood-smoked malt was used here) and something akin to maple, but not quite. Interesting, unique, nothing like any aroma I remember in any other beer.

Same goes for the flavor. A little more maple, a bit of honey, toffee, caramel, with the smoky pecan wood character even more prevalent than in the aroma. It's still a subtle layer among various layers of flavor, and one that thankfully tastes about as natural as grandma's pecan pie. Really nice. Carob and plantain were used in fermentation, and those are here, but only as an even subtler layer than the pecan wood. A hint of vanilla? Maybe. Really interesting.

Smooth and slick, the mouthfeel is just right and brightens up Wrath Of Pecant's interesting web of flavors.

This sample was half of a big bottle, enjoyed with a good friend who was kind enough to share this rarity. I was wishing there was more to go around, as this is one of those that's so unique that it's tough to get your head around from just one meeting. Way to go, DFH and the BA Bros...

Aroma:I get caramel and wood smoke in the aroma.

Appearance:This beer is caramel colored, with big fluffy off-white head.

Taste:The sweet foretaste is of malt, caramel, and pecans. The aftertaste is pleasantly smokey.

Mouthfeel:This beer has a light to medium body, and is a little creamy.

Drinkability:This beer is a real pleasure to drink, with great flavor and tons of complexity.

750ml bottle bought for $7 and enjoyed at home - fridge - bottled in 2010

Appearance: Pours a garnet brown color with a 1/2" tall head that falls quickly with a soda-like swishing carbonation.

Smell: Smells like a standard brown ale with a touch of plantain. I can smell a smokey aroma, but I can't discern that it is pecan smoke that infused the malt. Some carob in there as well. Nice!

Taste: Here the smoke and pecan assert themselves big time. I have never really tasted carob to relate this flavor too, but I now know what it tastes like. I don't detect any plantain, perhaps because of the force from the smoked malt. A complex flavor, nonetheless.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, smokey, oddly sweet and bitter at the same time, which I attribute to the smoked malt. Not a whole lot of alcohol can be detected from this beer. It has a pleasantly different flavor from most other DFH beers.

Drinkability: A good beer that is worth trying, especially when purchased for only $7 for the 750. I love that the alcohol content was subdued, but the flavor was complex, vibrant and downright delicious. I would definitely drink again!

The color of this beer is great, maybe not for a brown ale, but it glows red and orange hues, as if i'm staring into the bosom of the sun. I'm going to score it high for that anyway. The aroma is over my head in a lot of ways. Plenty of subtle nuance showing smoke and nuts, toffee, and green banana peel. Nice aroma, but it's a touch on the faint side, a shame in that aspect. The taste is sweet and malty with chocolate, vanilla and caramel notes leading to smoky pecans in the finish. These flavors develop as we go on, but still on the distant side. A little more umph is what I would expect here. The carbonation allows for a perfectly smooth body. A neat concept beer.

750ml bottle obtained via GATM from mday. Thanks for the opportunity.

Poured into DFH tulip, formed a 3/4" light beige head above the almost clear coppery brew. Frothy head is quite resilient, with heavy coating lace. Aroma is sweet banana, with a spicy tinge. Taste is fruity and sweet to start, nut and banana come through in the middle, and carry on through the close, which also exhibits a light bitterness. Mouthfeel is amazingly creamy, and drinkability is quite nice as well. Flavors are not overpowering, and refuse to cloy over time like many fruit beers suffer from.

750 mL bottle dated 2010 poured into a snifter
Picked up a bottle on my way to the to Ocean City, MD

A- A dark, clear red with a small off-white head that disappears quickly.

S- Smokey, roasted malts, hints of brown sugar, spices, and pecans.

T- Good complexity. Pecan smoked malts stand out, surprising hoppy bitter finish. The hint of spices and brown sugar remind me of Punkin' Ale.

M- Smooth, light, almost soda like.

D- Easy to drink and enjoyable. I am glad I picked up a bottle when I had the chance, and would buy it again. The big issue is the feel, if it was a little creamy and heavier.

Poured a clear copper with 2 finger of just off white head. Not really brown, more of a light ESB color
smelled of lots of smells. yeah i said it. Smokey and sweet. Very nice Kinda burnt caramel maybe. some different odors to it.
Oh man smokey malt taste! that's the strongest taste and lasts the most. but behind the smoke there is more. sweet. and some of the carob. Taste darker than it looks. Goes from sweet to a bit dark flavor to smoke.
Mouth is ok. once you get that it's not a "brown ale" but some other unclassifiable creature. Finishes dry and is not heavy.
Drinkability is ok
It's a well made brew and interesting, but i dont think i'll get another bottle.

A BIG thanks to mymrnngjckt for hooking me up with this brew. We sampled it at EBF this past year, and I didn't think I would get a chance to revisit it.

Appearance: Poured from the bottle into my Sam Adams Glass (I know, but my DFH glass is dirty and I don't feel like washing it...), the beer is clear and amber in color. I was expecting a slightly darker brew given the style, but okay. There's over an inch of thick-bubbled, foamy head sitting on top of this brew. The retention is impressive, and the lacing is thick and sticky...just the way I like it.

Smell: Plenty of sweetness, with a smoky sort of roasted nuttiness to it. Unique, that's for sure.

Taste: The smokiness hits me first and I'm having moderate Vietnam-style flashbacks of the NEPA's Smokeout. Moving past that, the beer is on the sweeter side, I am getting some hints of the plantain. The taste of pecans is certainly coming through, but the upfront smokiness is what really sticks out the most.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation. Now, for a "brown ale" I would say the carbonation is a bit too much and the texture is too thin...however looking beyond the style I think that the characteristics of the mouthfeel really suit the beer.

Drinkability: This is not the type of beer that I would drink on a frequent basis. I don't generally go for the smoky beers, and I prefer bitter over sweet. That being said, for what this beer is I find it very drinkable. I certainly wouldn't turn it down if it was offered to me, and I wouldn't mind another bottle for sometime down the road...I just wouldn't be in a huge hurry to drink it. Try it, at least once, if you can.

Bottle aquired in trade, I beleive from jojomdma. If I am mistaken, sorry. This one was shared at the CB 110k #3 release. Review from notes. Poured into a CCB snifter.

A: Pretty much pure brown color. The pour drops a minimal tannish head that leaves little lace.

A: Very smokey. It has a distinct chipotle in adobo scent. Very woody and spicey. Very little sweetnees in this brew. Quite unlike any Brown Ale I've had.

T: Taste is more smoked wood, I'm guessing it's the pecan wood, but not really getting any pecan flavor. Slightly bitter, with small notes of vanilla and roasted nuts. Finishes spicey but clean.

M: Medium body, good amounts of carbonation. I actually think this is the best part of the beer.

D and overall impression: Drinkability is pretty low here. The spicey and charred wood will limit this emensely. Overall, not my cup of tea. Interesting, but not something I'll bother seeking out again. Skal.

Big thanks to mymrnngjckt for this bottle.

Pours a slightly reddish brown of medium hue. Generates about one finger of somewhat fizzy tan head, which dissipates to only a thin, patchy lace. Not much stick on the sides.

Smell is quite smoky, with a nutty aroma as well. That pecan-wood smoked malt is producing the dominant aroma for sure. Has some caramel malt sweetness as well.

Taste is also very smoky and nutty. Those are the dominant flavors as they were the dominant aromas. I'm not finding the plantains at all; there is some caramel-like sweetness and I'm sure the plantains contributed some sweetness, but it's not distinctive. Likewise with the carob. It's all a bit muddled I think and overwhelmed by the smoke and pecan. This does taste slightly charred or even a bit burned, but not overwhelmingly so.

Mouthfeel is a bit less than a medium body and feels lacking in that regard. A bit too thin, and a little sharp on the tongue too. A softer, creamier and fuller feel would have been nice.

At the end of the day there is some good flavor here, although I think it could have been better. Not something I would drink with any regularity, as even this bottle feels like a lot to finish by myself. Not super drinkable, but interesting. Worth a try if you can find it, but be sure to share.

HUGE thanks to Steve for this one!

Pours a lovely amber/copper color with a towering 4 fingers of head and some lacing left behind.

The aroma is very boozy for being only 6% ABV....maybe some sort of maple sweetness disguising itself as booze. Lots of tree bark, nuttiness, floral hops, banana, acetone....huge and messy.

The flavor is a bit more subtle. Lots of tree bark and sweet nuttiness. Caramel malt, earthy hops, notes of orange peel and raisin. A bit watery.

The body is on the light side of medium and carbonation is at appropriate levels. Drinkability is OK....this goes down easy and is complex for the ABV but overall it doesn't have that exciting of a flavor profile. I'd probably like this on tap at a bar more than I would at home sipping in front of the TV.

Thanks to kbutler1 for sharing this one!

Pours a light layer of fizzy off white head. Color is a clear copper brown. Very light for a brown ale. Not dark at all.

Aroma: Smells very smokey like a rauchbier. Bacon, smoke, roasted malts. Can't really detect any pecans here. Nothing like a brown ale at all.

Taste: Huge smoked flavors. Again, just like a rauchbier. Bacon and lots of it. Seriously confused with this beer. Some malts, but all are smoked. No brown ale flavors at all.

Mouthfeel: Smoked, a bit smooth, and then more smokiness. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends smoky and dry.

Overall, an American brown that seems to have taken a different path. Tastes nothing like any brown I have had. The pecans never really showed through me. Not very drinkable at all.

A: This poured a clear mahogany with decent light tan head.
S: It smelled like roasted barley and nutty malt, with copper hops and some bready yeast (not much smoke).
T: It tasted more like I expected, with smoky nutty malt and roasted barley dominating, as well as some sweet brown sugar and rusty copper. It had a smoky and bitter aftertaste that wasn't smooth but wasn't too harsh either.
M: It was watery with some carbonation.
D: This was a nice beer, but somewhat unremarkable. It was enjoy able and pretty easy to drink, but I really had to deconstruct the subtleties to appreciate it. I'm not sure if that's a sign of the brewer's success or failure? I guess I prefer bolder tastes rather than more delicate nuances. But to me, this ended up being nothing more than a smoky scottish ale that's not worth seeking out.
