Just cracked a few bottles of the date beer this week. It's great!
I dry hopped this with an ounce of Willamette for one week.
The nose is very sweet – lots of blackcurrant, some raisin, and a nice fruity plum like layer, as well. It fermented out to 1.010 but doesn't taste too dry, i think, in part because of the Carapils.
The aroma is quite complex and will hopefully "separate" as it matures.
In retrospect, I think a simpler grain bill and less aroma hopping would have created better staging for the date...but I'm happy with the result, regardless.
