The elusive brew is made from pilsner malt and amber malt with an original gravity of 26.5?P, yielding an 11% abv. It's hopped with Warrior and Glacier varieties. Primary fermentation takes place in open vessels using two yeast strains, one American and one English. For added complexity, the beer is conditioned on barrel staves of French Oak for four months before being dry hopped with Glacier at the rate of a half-pound per barrel. This elixir is then blended 50/50 with 90 Minute IPA. After blending, the beer will measure 80 IBU and 10% abv. Bottled in corked bottles through Michael Jacksonís rare beer club by late November 04 and available in 12 ounce full distribution in early January 05.

chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2007
bottle- pours a seemingly very carbonated pale copper color with an off-white head. smells hops, pine, some cherries, and a caramel maltiness. also some wood in the background as well. tastes very different than it smells. extremely complex. malty and sweet, syrupy mouth feel. coats the back of the throat with alcohol and warms like cough medecine. now that ive made that connection i cant get the taste of nyquil out of my mouth. The hops seem very subdued in this one maybe it is the barrel aged thing. I think i would enjoy seeing how this one tastes in a year or two.

11thMan (20) - Dennison, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Pours a very nice amber color. Has a very nice whitish head. Smells of hops and alcohol fill the nose. Has a very nice woody/hoppy taste with an alcohol warming after taste. A very good IPA!

raphael (1173) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Sweeter than I expected, honey-ishn with some oak flavor, and the edge of the hops. not much head or carbonation. aroma is sweet as well, with a little sour-yeast tang.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2007 [Bottle from Beermouth tasted with the hop-bros at Jessí cosy inn.]
A sipper beer, because itís more a barley than an IIPA. But itís OK, donít punish for that. Oaky head and aroma of raisins, brandy and fruits. Flavor is similar, but ending up in some unbalanced final impression of this beer, but that bad is it not!

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2007
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.

glennmastrange (2685) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2007
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.

Duster72 (117) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 19, 2007
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.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2007
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???
