Appearance Bryan: pours a very appealing copper-colored brew with no lacing or remnants of the initial head to speak of Smell Bryan: a bit of malt aroma, but nothing too powerful to notice; an alcoholic hint that it could have been bourbon barrel aged Taste Bryan: some nice bitter hops flavor upfront gives way quickly to sweet flavors like brown sugar, vanilla, and bubble gum (all in a good way) Mouthfeel Bryan: Some nice soft carbonation helps keep the beer alive throughout; this is a smooth drinking beer Drinkability Bryan: yes, this is an interesting beer that makes me want to keep trying more to discover other flavors (glad I have the entire bottle to myself) Seconds? Bryan: yes, (see last comment!), though at 11% ABV I better make sure that I'm not driving anywhere!

Beer Tasting: Dogfish Head Immort Ale
This is a strong ale from Dogfish Head in Delaware. This 12 ounce bottle was generously donated by our friend Matt, who purchased a 4-pack in the Queens/Long Island area. Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep the review as brief as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability.
