It's time to break into the Dick's Brewing Co. mixed 12 pack again... this time tackling the ambiguously named Dick's Danger Ale.
Dick's Danger Ale poured into the glass with a very slight head that quickly dissipated and had a dark, murky look the color of root beer. The nose was very hoppy with an earthy herb I can't quite put my finger on. On the tongue, the hop greeting was present but a little flat and quickly faded to a thick feeling but watery tasting roasted malt, stout like flavor. There was a lingering burnt taste to it.
Looking at the description above, it wouldn't seem there is much recommend about this beer, but I can't say it was a bad beer... just a bit flat and not quite coming through as a distinct beer. I cheated for this beer and actually read the description after the tasting... half pale ale and half stout is a good description for what I tasted, but one has to wonder why they even bothered. It lacks the boldness of either.
ABV 5.2 (note the manufacturer's site was 4.5)
