Beer 222/365 – Dogfish Head Wrath of Pecant

Style: American Brown Ale

ABV: 6.0%

Purchased at: Dogfish Brewpub in Rehoboth

What makes this beer different: First smokey brown ale I have ever had. Wasn’t a huge fan

Will I be drinking this again: I have another bottle but will probably bring it to the next Pittsburgh BA tasting.

Grade: B

6/18/2010: Picked this bad boy up from the brewpub while I was on vacation a few weeks back. One cool thing dogfish does is they make some of their vintage/one-of beers available to people who make the trek to Rehoboth. I also got a couple of 2006 World Wide Stouts. If I remember right this bottle was only $7 bucks? Not too bad for the big bottle.

The smell of Wrath of Pecant is smokey, malty and nutty. The flavor is… unique? I’m not sure how I feel about it. Smoke is the first thing that sticks out, and its a weird meaty smoke. I guess the boatload of malts help balance it to a point… caramel, toffee, lots of brown sugar. This actually is a very sweet beer, but the smoked flavor just doesn’t work here. Oh and not to mention no sign at all of the plantain, carob and pecans mentioned on the label. The body is actually kind of light for how overly sweet this beer is, and it would benefit from a bit more carbonation as well.

Picture of the day: Someone is over-compensating
