Dogfish Head Immort Ale

Immort Ale
Dogfish Head Brewery
11% ABV
Grade: A-

Poured with minimal head. This beer has a beautiful brownish-amber color to it. Not much lacing to speak of.

Smell is deep caramel with some roasted grain notes and mild smoke. A light bit of maple and vanilla peek through but mainly caramel.

Taste is far more smokey than the nose but this is not a smoke-heavy beer. It’s still quite subtle, with just enough to come through to add some interesting complexity to the flavor. No vanilla or maple on the tongue though just a faint twang of the juniper. this is a very earthy beer.

Mouthfeel is quite mild considering the strength of this beer. Mild carbonation with only a slight thickness. No dryness from the alcohol at all. That said, this is highly drinkable with almost no hint at how strong this beer really is.

I’m thoroughly enjoying this one, and wishing I bought more than just one when I spied it.
