The thing I was not ready for was the malts in this thing. Holy cow. Lots of carbonation. LOTS. Very attractive Amber color. Nice head retention. Sexy lacing. Smell is just of a hop-forward beer but the taste is where it stands out from the rest. Piney resin with a malty sweet, thick feel. Also a slow sipper for sure.

Bière complexe avec une belle présence de sucre, de résine, de caramel, et d’épices. Peut-être trop sucré par contre. J’ai l’impression d’avoir dégusté un barley wine plus qu’une impériale IPA... bien.

Probably my favorite brew on the planet. Seriously. I try many others but always come home to Dogfish. Heading the Delaware is like a religious pilgrimage.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The flavor is strong and the finish is smooth. All hop-heads need not apply as this is a great balanced beer with no hint of the 9% alcohol it delivers. Great aroma and a very strong, yet enjoyable beer. I can’t find anything I don’t like about it. The bitterness and high ABV are not that prominent. A few of these will really sneak up on you. A slow sipper for sure.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Clear dark amber color. Small size, beige head, stays as a ring. Sweet, fruity, malty, caramel, alcohol in aroma. Sweet, caramel, fruity in taste. Caramelly and malts and bit of burtness in aftertaste. Medium bitterness. Medium carbonation. Sweetness covers alcohol quite well, but can feel the heat. Drinkable brew.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2016 pours amber color, clear, almost brilliant, with very stable creamy yellowish off-white head. Aroma: malt aroma, which takes on candied fruitcake, supported with hop aroma, which takes on pine, citruses and some other fruits. Flavor is practically the same, with the same notes menitoned above, but with somehow disturbing honey like sweetness before finish. Finish is slightly bitter, dry. Bitterness lingers in aftertaste. Malt sweetness and moderate high hop bitterness are pretty well balanced. Body is medium, texture soft, carbonation is moderate medium.
