Wrath of Pecant is a collaboration between Dogfish and the Alstrom Brothers of Beer Advocate celebrating the 2010 Extreme Beer Fest. We worked with them to come up with the concept for the beer. If you want to read the actual 'making of the beer' converstaion - check it out here! Once we had the beer idea, we let Beer Advocate members vote to name it - the winning name came from BA member 'strangefate.' (find out the long, strange story behind the final name 'Wrath of Pecant' here) So in the end... Wrath of Pecant became a 6% abv brownish ale brewed with pecan-wood smoked malt, plantains, and carob. It is complex yet quaffable; maltiness nuttiness and subtle earthy notes prevail. The beer was first tapped at the 2010 Extreme Beer Fest in Boston in February. The bottles (750ml) were released from the Milton brewery for The Weekend Of Compelling Ales & Whatnot in March of 2010. They are now available for sale from the brewery (and very soon at the brewpub!) and should be around into the summer. There are no plans to distribute this beer outside the state of Delaware. Pay us a visit and get some!

    Bottled (thanks thomassova4!). Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is wood, some mild fruity and mild brady notes. Flavour is sweet malts, mild leathery notes. Also some quite nutty notes once it warms up.

    Aug. 2010 - Bottle bought and shared at Rehoboth brewpub. Light brown pour, lighter than would be expected from a brown ale. Nice nutty aroma. Flavor was a pretty drab brown ale with a hint of smokiness and nuttyness thrown in. The carob seemed to add a significant sweetness. Bottle served at just perfect temperature and as it warmed further got a little too sweet.

    This beer gets straight 8's. If you like smokey flavors you will love this beer. It tastes like it has been sitting in a smoke house for ages. It has an intense smoke flavor but is still palatable and balanced. This beer was a one trick pony for me. I really enjoyed it but likely won't be getting it again. That being said, great collaborative effort and pick it up if you see it. I had this in the bottle and as a 4 oz. sample at the Milton DFH brewery.
