COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy orange to light brown with a diminished white head. Dense spiced hoppy aroma. Sweet malty at first with an intense hoppy flavour following. Dense bitter and dry wooden hops flavoured. Smooth and nicely balance finish with a light malt base just enough to match the hops flavours.

Ungstrup (29802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2007
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of hops and caramel as well as light notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, hops, and peaches as well as a light dusty note from the hops. The body is like thick hop juice and the alcohol burns slihghtly in the throat.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of sk8viking. Pours a very hazy amber - almost murky - with floating impurities and a beige head. Fat aroma of hops and caramel. Very full in body with a very smooth mouthfeel. Lots of sweet caramel - almost Barleywineish - almost drowning the 98 IBUs. The finish is rich and full of warming alcohol. 270607

fiulijn (15217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle at Hamnmästaren, Malmö, 12% ABV
Hazy amber color with small head. Aroma of cereals and alcohol. Caramel flavor, moderately sweet, with vegetable impression; strong bitterness, with strong resins, not fruity; long final.
Totally unworthy the price tag in Sweden (21 $).
