4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2011 4oz sample from draft at the brewpub. Beautiful appearance... a nice golden coppery look. The aroma is sweet and citrusy.. taste is awesome. As expected, the high ABV does not make it exceptonally drinkable, but you’d be surprised. It’s so smooth... It’s just goodness.. like a concentrate of the 90 minute. You could use this as syrup on your pancakes.

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!

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Haven’t 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. I’m 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--that’s 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.

On tap at Mekong, Richmond. Pours a slightly hazy golden with lasting head. Aroma is floral and complex. Booze, hop oil, and malt. Flavor is overpowering. Intense and complex, flowers, leather, booze and resin. Full bodied and dangerous.
