BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

Style: Herbed / Spiced Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
For this ambitious liquid time capsule, we used ingredients and traditions plucked from Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Ta Henket is brewed with an ancient form of wheat and loaves of hearth-baked bread, and it's flavored with chamomile, dom-palm fruit and Middle Eastern herbs. To ferment this earthy ancient ale, Sam and friends traveled to Cairo, set out baited petri dishes and captured a native Egyptian saccharomyces yeast strain.

A very interesting beer. The pour is a light orange with an off white head. The smell seemed all over the place at first with hints of sage, the tea leaves, and other herbs before I caught the fruits. The taste was very earthy with all of the spices before sweet fruits coming out big near the end. It was very layered and complex and offered interesting insight to ancient beer flavors. Worth a try although not an every day kind of beer.
