Oak aged complex flavor is ruined by an annoying cream soda taste and diabetic sweetness. Limited carbonation sticky syrup. Barley wine and IPA are two of my favorite styles but this falls flat in most respects.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2008 Bottle. Nice fruity complex aromas. Roasted/nutty and molassesfor the malt, orangey hops, and a bit of soap. Other noticable notes were raisins and dates and the oak itís aged in. Itís got a small fizzy white head which mostly diminishes, but it has excellent lacing on the glass. Color is rust/red. Taste is heavily sweet from start to long finish. Itís got a medium to full body and is syrupy on the palate. Carbonation is soft to flat and has lightly dry and alcoholic finish. Not my favorite Dogfish but still tasty.

Generally, I liked it very much. Itís very sweet, very carmel. Definitely has some of the 90 minute taste, but much sweeter. Had to sip it due to the sweetness and the ABV (over 10%). I liked this beer and if it were in the $2-$2.50 range, I would buy a six pack. Donít think I can spend $15 for the 4-pack, though.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Flying Saucer, Houston with Brett Weir, BillBrasky, and my fiancee. Pours like a top-shelf cognac/whiskey with an intense aroma of white grape, riasin, and peach. A rush of bourbon barrel-raised hops immediately innundates the tongue, only to be quelched by a soft, thick river of sugar candy. Full and thick on the palate. Geez, another fine beer- from Dogfish Head. Can someone please check the temperature in Hell???

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Clear amber color with a small white / off-white head. Aroma is heavy malty, fruit, heavy hoppy, pine, oak, alcoholic. Flavor is heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration. Body is full, texture is syrupy, carbonation is flat, finish feel is moderate alcoholic. I think it is a cross between barley wine and IIPA. But very nice :o))

nice and sweet, 12oz bottle, served in a tulip glass. a good beer, but not a IIPA, very sweet thats the predominate in the sugary. No complaints on this beer. a nice beer with some alcohol bite on the back end.

On draft at the Flying Saucer in Ft. Worth. Deep amber pour with minimal head. Aroma of fruits, malts and hops. First taste was malts and honey followed by grassy hops. Syrupy sweet and lip smacking good. I really thought this was more of a barley wine style than IIPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours amber. Aroma jumps at your nose with hoppy, oakey notes. Flavor is oak, honey, hops, and a bit of malt. Mouthfeel is very round and syrupy. Honey overtones more apparent in finish. A delicious beer but the only bad thing is that I donít think itís appropriate to drink en masse.
