Immort Ale

Name – Immort Ale
Country – United States
Type – American Strong Ale

Appearance – Pours a really nice, clear ruby red color with a good sized white head that is gone pretty quickly.

Smell – Smell is pretty malty and sweet with smells of caramel, raisins, dark cherries, vanilla and a little bit of smoke.

Taste – A sweet maple syrup type taste up front with some smokiness to it.  It finishes with a vanilla like taste.  A little bit of an alcohol burn in there as well.

This one caught me a good deal off guard from other beers that have been characterized as the same style.  Not as big on the hops and only a slight  bit of the alcohol taste.  Not that any of those are bad things to be lacking this is just different.  I liked the vanilla taste to it.  Something I can’t think I have come across in a beer previously.  But DFH are known for their “different” brews so that really shouldn’t com across as too big a surprise.  Overall a pretty good one.

Overall Grade – B

    I really like almost everything they do. There India Brown is my least favorite, but its still decent. I can’t say enough about how “off-centered” they are.

    I’ve had some really good ones by them and some ones that I just couldn’t wrap my head around. But a lot of those odder ones I tried when I first started getting into good beer so I will have to retry them again in the future.
