3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours murky orange with a nice and tame finger of head. Smells very malty/sweet and alcoholic along with just a hint of hops which is weird for an IPA. VERY sweet tasting with dried fruit, alcohol and I think there might be a little hops but that might be from me expecting a heap of them present in a big bad IPA. Though the alcohol is recockulously high, itís not obvious at all. Feels extremely syrupy and thick. Totally not what I was expecting but thatís not necessarily bad. A nice treat but I canít imagine drinking more than one at a time. Definitely a must try.

Well it is a hard beer to get your hands, I finally got my hands on a few for $10 a piece. I have to say it is worth every cent, not only is it one of the best beers ive ever had but it is strong! I like the fact that it ages well. It is much like a cognac or brandy in my opinion with a very sweet flavor and great aftertaste

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy light amber orange color with a thin light tan head. Aroma has a faint citrusy piney hop character, with touches of molasses, caramel malts, and a nice alcohol burn. Flavor is quite potent, with a strong alcohol burn, heavy bitterness, and caramel sweetness. Thick sticky mouthfeel with a lingering astringent character and burn. Very solid beer. More of a strong ale with intense bitterness. Huge ABV!

Havenít really cared for Dogfish Head beer. Still felt the need to try this. Hazy copper color. Very little head. Malty alcohol aroma with a mild hop smell. Tastes pretty good actually. Not really an IPA flavor though. Much more like a barley wine. Lots of alcohol burn. Feels more like drinking liquor than beer. Iím glad I have someone to share with.

2 year old bottle pour. Brilliant. Caramel corn nose and initial taste. With 2 years on it this is a beautifully chewy barleywine-esque beer. Huge butter and toffee nose with a smooth and bitter finish. Outstanding.

Alcohol at a cocktail level--thatís what this is, more a cocktail than a beer--bufered by lemon & caramel in the aroma. flavors of powdered sugar, alcohol, peaches. instant warming. amazingly smooth. Been wanting to try this for decades--thanks Belmont Station.

12oz bottle pours a hazy orange amber with a one finger head and nice lacing. Aromas of fruit, citrus, herbs, caramel, and banana. Flavor is mild bitter with an obvious alcohol presence. Yum!
