Dogfish Head "Sah'tea"
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery - Milton, Delaware USA
Sahti (ABV 9%)

[Best served in an English Pint]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a hazy orange with a slight brown tint and had a thin (less than 1 finger) white frothy head that dissipated quickly, which in turn do not produce any significant lacing.

The aroma was of a light bread malt and a sweet doughy yeast with hints of nutmeg, coriander, brown sugar, cinnamon, clove, banana, a bit of citrus and a infusion of tea.

The taste was malty and very sweet with hints of nutmeg, brown sugar and banana early on with the flavor getting a getting a bit spicier with notes of coriander, clove, a mild black tea presence and a nice dose of citrus (lemon I believe) at the end. The flavor lasted only a short while after the swallow with a nice smooth spicy finish.

Mouthfeel was just about medium in body and rather creamy in texture with a very mild carbonation.

Overall a very sweet tasting brew with a lot of the fall spices, very reminiscent of a Pumpkin Ale.

    Mark Keep meaning to try this. It'd be good to get a couple of Sahtis and taste them side by side. I know Elysian has (had) one called Trip IV and I believe Nogne O brewed one.
