Dogfish Head Craft Brewery

Style: Herbed / Spiced Beer

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.

25 oz bomber in a tulip glass. bottled 2012. hazy straw in color. smells of sweet bread and fruit-cant tell what kind. taste is sweet, very unique. chamomile is pronounced, maybe some honey? its unique, a little abrasive with the chamomile so pronounced. im also unsure what effect the aging had. better rating due to uniqueness and ambition-probably would not drink again though.
