When I first tried this brew, all I could taste was malt and bacon! Now, this beer isn’t brewed with bacon, but the smokiness along with the overly sweet brown sugar flavor certainly makes me think of it. I do love some bacon, but I’d perfer to eat it, not drink it. Some other people that shared this beer enjoyed it, but the consensus was it was a little weird and overly smoky. With this being said – The Wrath of Pecant is the probably one of the only beers brewed by Dogfish Head that I don’t care for; I actually adore most of them – Palo Santo, Red & White and their Brown Ale – just to name a few.
I applaud Dogfish for always trying something new and pushing the boundaries of craft brewing, but maybe they could go for a new chocolate beer next time.
