Sometimes a lot isnít nearly enough. For the times when a lot plus a bit more is called for we proffer the 110K+OT series. This 5th iteration is a 25 OF, 5 FG, 11% abv, 5 SRm sort of brew. If you donít know what all that jargon means the gist of this is; itís more than you deserve. A lot more. And a little more than that too

Bottle share... Thanks, Donny! Aroma is sweet like oranges with a dank, hop smell. Appearance is a murky bronze. Taste starts sweet then turns slightly hoppy then finishes sweet. Palate is surprisingly sweet. Overall, a interesting beer. Would try again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Review from backlog, bottle tasted 08/12/2012. Pours reddish brown, light tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, burnt sugar, mild pine hoppiness. Taste is sweet, vanilla caramel, toffee, prune, resinous piney hop character, verging on the slightly sour. Medium body. This was a bit off- weak as an IPA, not nice even as a barleywine, a bit of a confusing hybrid.

Bottle - thanks! Pours clear reddish amber with a large creamy puffy beige head that dissipates slowly leaving sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma is very malty - caramel, toffee, pine resin. Flavor about the same, medium sweet, medium bitter. Most of the hop character has faded into "bitter", but the beer remains quite interesting as an American strong or a barleywine. There is some zestiness to the bitter, which I am guessing is curacao. Not bad. Full bodied and creamy in the mouth.

Dogbrick (11513) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2013
This beer pours a cloudy dark orange color with a medium creamy khaki head that recedes steadily to a compact film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, yeast and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of resiny hops, toffee, doughy malt and citrus. The finish is sweet with a citrus and piney hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Plovmand (7853) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle provided by Hopscotch. Thanks man! Pours hazy deep golden with a medium off white head. The aroma is sweet fruity with notes of spices, orange marmalade and hops. The flavor is highly malty with sweet fruity hoppy notes. Oranges and marmalade. Dry spicy and fruity finish. Nice but bit cloying as the beer warms up. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
