Have you read the description for the regular Crooked Tree yet? Well this beer is almost the same just double. We actually took the Crooked Tree recipe and doubled all of the ingredients except the water, just the way a DOUBLE should be made. Big hops balanced with tons of malt give this beer a huge body. Although this beer is as cool as "the Fonz" when first purchased, it gets really mellow and smooth with some age. After a year or two stored in a cool dark place you'll notice the heavy caramel and malt flavors are trying to sneak past the hops, they’re just not fast enough. This beer is hugely delicious so it will need your undivided attention (the chores can wait....trust us). 98 IBU's

Bottle at the Local Pub, Halandri, Athens. Aroma: Pungent hoppy aroma dominates. (It hit me like a slap while opening the bottle and while pouring) Loads of caramel, phenols, spices, orange peel and resin. Seriously good. Mouthfeel: Big mouthfeel and sticky texture. Taste: Very potent and rich. Firm bitterness and an big malty base. Warming (13% Abv+) and syrup. Very, very strong fruity (figs?) and piney hops. Finish: Warm, dry, astringent. A long, phenolic aftertaste. Overall: Exceptionally good.

Bottle. Pours amber, clear with noce head. Aroma of pine, resin and tropical fruits with strong malty side. In taste sweet, malty and catamely withpiney flavours. Strong grapefrut bitterness, sticky texture. Alcohol almost not noticable in 13%ABV beer. Fantastic.

King_Alex_II (640) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Redish color with little foam. Forest (pines) hoppy notes. Thick mouth feeling, light boozy with a sweet hoppy bitterness. The aftertaste is dry smooth and tart. This beer is very nice, but be careful. This is a trojan beer: you see one beer, but two more are hiding in the alcohol content.

SinH4 (1087) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Hazy orange color with big white head. So much spruces, grapefruit, cat piss. Tastes like a Tannenzapfen in syrup. Huge residual sweetness, oily mouthfeel. Crazy. It’s got it all, but doesn’t fit together perfectly.

vandc01 (188) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Poured from a 12oz bottle at home... Can definitely smell the booziness from the bottle. Very big beer...13.6%...not a lot of burn, but some is present. Lots of malt in this beer - huge body - just as advertised.

pintbypint (2941) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2015
RBAG 2015. Sampled from a brown 12oz. Aged sample, 2008 vintage. Poured out brownish a a small thinly beaded white head. Sweet notes in the nose - toffee, some fruit, some alcohol and unknown spice. Actually really surprised that this held up so well, I wish we could have had a fresh bottle to contrast, but quite interesting.
