3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
2005 bottle. No head to speak of, a dark copper. Starts with a bit of hop flavor, then gets really sweet. Real thick, elixir like. Pretty good overall, not worth the price tag.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quickly dissipating head and burnt orange color. Smells like orange rind and damp earth. The palate is so disappointing. Tastes like orange concentrate/limoncello, both of which I canít stand.
The beer is way too hot with alcohol and tastes like an orange Crush after two bags of Halloween candy.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Similar to the DFH 90 Minute in both appearance and taste. A ruby to amber color with a quickly dissipated head. Plenty of grapefruit and sweet as could be expected. Hoppy? Duh. Donít let those similarties fool you, though - this packs a wallop. The alcohol is disguised all too well and begins to hit you slowly as it warms you up from the core. I managed to drink a whole bottle but donít remember much after that (or during the quaffing process come to think of it). Fortunately, I had my wife along to drive my passed-out ass home, and since I can only tolerate her driving when Iím drunk, I like to think that this really worked out well for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not too shabby...Not much of a head to speak of along with pungent, thick aroma consisting of a sweet, alcohol scent. Very much like the Immort Ale except stronger with more alcohol present. Not bad but I like the world wide stout better.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Blue Dog in Lansdale as part of a DFH tasting. Pours a translucent golden with a small white head that left decent lacing. Aromas is candied sugar, orange and a sweet maltiness. Flavor is sweet, real sweet but I actually like that about this. Alcohol picked up in the flavor. Almost a bit sticky yet nicely balanced. This is an extreme beer and Iílm glad I got a chance to check it out. Thanks to Rob (owner of the Blue Dog) for making sure I got free sample while we wait about an hour for a table at the joint. This thing gives you an instant buzz.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bonus bottle from kramer17801. Dated 2004. Murky orange color with a sizable white head that fades nicely into some heavy lacing. Floral aroma with tons of orange and peach notes. Sweet and malty with a big orange flavored hoppiness. I opened this expecting not to like it but I find it outstanding. This is a VERY sweet beer but the hops balance it well and the alcohol warmth finishes it off very nicely.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Vibrant golden/orange hybrid, moderate to thin off-white froamy head, quite nice lacing, mild carbonation.   Alcohol fused resiny aroma, heaps of grapefruit (sweetened) and a touch of honey.   Smells not quite as strong as the 20% the bottle states, but it sure smells sweet and candyish.   Sweet citrusy flavor immediately up front, hop presense but its subtle compared to the mouth watering sweetness.   Not cloying like I remembered, but its big.   Body is large, mouthfeel isnít as thick or syrupy as I had remembered tho.   Lingering citrus peel on the exit, remains fairly sweet.   Definitely not a bitter hop monster, but a sugary sweet alcoholic citrus based candy.   Not terribly complex, but its smooth with a fairly well hidden ABV.   Iíd have no problem having this one again.   Yum!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A friend of mine measured the IBUís and it was in the 40ís. Not even very close to 120 IBU ! Very disappointing for a $8 bottle. Good marketing but disappointing product.

Pours very thick amber with a decent head. Looking at the carbonation, the bubbles lift every so-slowly to the top, showing exactly how thick and syrupy this monster is. Sweet aroma with hints of pine and citrus... a tinge of alcohol in there as well. Flavor is rich... lotsa hoppiness, a bit sweetly alcohol-filled, and some fruitiness- citrus from the hops. Very nice.
