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.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2007 This beer pours a deep amber with a thin white head. When you take a whiff of this thing, you immediately get a sweet smokey hoppy smell! The flavors in this thing are farily complex and quite good, they emulate the smell! This is my favorite DFH beer to date! I will be buying more of this before it goes away! Cheers!

looks like a cross between an ipa and a barleywine. smells like a hoppy barleywine. the taste is mellow really but with an alcohol kick. and some honey sweetness. i dont really have to drink this one again. it kinda screws the pooch. i have a feeling this might be sexy with less alcohol. but than it may just be bland

12 oz. bottle, 2007. Pours medium brown with a thin off-white head. For an DIPA, this is balanced. Aroma of floral hops and caramel maltiness. Malty oak flavors complement the hops in this one. 10% shows but is not overwhelming. I couldnít drink more than 3-4 of these, but that should be all that is needed.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2007 2007 Bottle. Aroma is mellow hops and sweet malts. Light alcohol and dark fruit notes. Pours gold with amber hues and no head. Thin ring around edge, light lacing and swirling. Heavy and stong on the palate but very smooth. End is dry hoppy. Smooth malty sweetness and alcohol notes. Dominated by caramel malts, but the hops come in at the end. Hugely successful malt/hop balance.

Re-rate, same batch 9 months later. Flavor has reached a perfect balance. Some of the hops have faded from the finish and moved toward the middle. Intense caramal sweetness punctuated with fruit flavors rolls into a touch of balancing hop bitterness only to fade back to a sweet finish. Really nice at this age. 9/3/9/4/18

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2007 12 oz bottle dated 1/08/07. Crystal clear reddish orange color with a white 1 inch head. I could taste the 90 minute from the beginning. This beer had a much smoother finish no doubt due to the oak barrel. Hoppy. I am happy i stumbled across this one.

12 oz pour into a nice English pub glass with the dimpled bottom that encouraged a tornadic production of a giant head from the fury of bubbles in the bottom of the glass. Shiny reddish-orange. Itís like a vision of heaven in a glass. This has the syrupy goodness of the 90-minute, but with an added syrupiness ... robust and smooth, like a desert sauce, you could pour this over a bowl of vanilla ice cream instead of a caramel sauce, with itís own french vanilla creaminess ... the ONLY thing that detracts here is an odd light metallic twinge at the finish that didnít seem to fit. Otherwise, this is a beaut of a big beer with a light profile. Well done Dogfish! (#2703, 2/14/2007)

Date on Bottle:1-18-07. Pours gold/ruby. Thin off-white head. Can taste the 90 Min. citrusy hop flavor at first, then dries out w/ the oak character. The beer the 90 min is blended with is very malty and this takes away the hoppiness of the 90 min. Not a bad beer.

Bottled. Thanks to Dennis Bell for this gem. Clear orange pour with thin white head. Citrus, grassy/hoppy aroma. Odd flavor. Sweet dry oak/wood taste. Not bad some what complex. Good Brew.

Poured a clear brownish with reddish hints and a pretty small white head. I though dogfish head was going to bottle condition beers 10% and up now but I didnt see any yeast at all. The aroma had a pretty unique hoppiness that seemed a little earthy and also had a little oakiness. The flavor was very sweet with a mild hoppiness and pretty malt forward. This was actually very drinkable for being 10% and didnt seem harsh at all.

poured a steady head, looked like the 90 min. but had a slightly redder tint. started smooth and began to get hoppy, but before the bitterness entered, it went back to smooth. the finish was a pleasing malt flavor. better than i expected.
