dogfish head just makes weirdly awesome beers that are worth the trip to delaware to experience, or begging your family & friends to bring home to you when they’ve been in the area. we scored this by the latter.
mr. lusher handed me a glass full of the dark brew, & i asked, “so what’s it supposed to be?”. “a dry-minted stout,” he said.
mint? in the beer?
now i like mint. mint in mojitos, mint in toothpaste, mint in the lifesavers i steal out of my coworker’s candy dish every day, but really? in beer? dogfish head is known for their crazy concoctions, but i wondered if they had gone to far this time.
i took a sip, fully expecting it to taste as bad as drinking orange juice after brushing your teeth, with the mint & all, but really? it totally worked. the flavors of chocolate, mint & fruit come together to make this really drinkable, even at 10.5 % abv & it finishes smooth & sweet.
quick work was made of it.
have you ever gone to great lengths to snag something tasty? managed to bribe someone else to do it for you? leave a comment & tell us about it!
