Dogfish Head Midas Touch
Review by D.P.
Appearance – Hazy honey color, weak head
Smell – I smell a touch of honey
Taste – Honey, cereal, strong alcohol finish. Lingering sweetness on the lips. Not much carbonation
Mouthfeel – Smooth, a bit syrupy.
Drinkability – Interesting, a little too sweet for my taste.
Notes – The high alcohol content left my head abuzz with wondrous ideas and amazing inventions, so I can easily imagine a gaggle of ancient wizened wizards drinking this beer for inspiration. My suggestion to you would be to drag out your father’s Uriah Heap album – The Magician’s Birthday, listen to the title cut while drinking this beer and experience some magic. I challenge you…..I challenge you all!
My call – 2.5
My Take Review by Z.P.
Appearance – Hazy Amber, had a really good head.
Smell – I get a lot of grape smell.
Taste – First I just taste alcohol, in the middle I taste the grapes and the aftertaste is a lingering honey flavor.
Mouthfeel – This is strange, but numbing.
Drinkability – I could easily drink at least 3.
Notes – The initial taste was really a let down, I didn’t want to taste all that alcohol right away. I expected to taste gold when I drank this, but instead I only got copper.
