3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(backlog) 15cl bottle sample, Mulhouse Mondial 09/2013. Sweet and bitter rotten pumpkin. Bourbon and liqueur traces, some abv.
Vegetable astringency, paired with hop bitterness make for an imposing, not seducing sipper of a barley wine. Dry oak finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from a bottle shop in Copenhagen (think it was Kiohskh). Sweet and hoppy smell with sweet malts, dried fruits and piney hop aromas. Sweet and malty smell with a hoppy backbone. Very nice, very well made. Love the combo of the sweet malts and the hops.

Taste is balanced heavily on the malts with citrucy hop tones. Some harshness also present, but adding some yeast from the bottle made the beer more smooth and enjoyable.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a very nice golden, honey color with a slightly golden-tinged head. Smells of faint citrus and grass. It begins with nice oak and gradually gives way to grapefruit, freshly baked bread, and swiss cheese? This all sounds disgusting but all the flavors mix together perfectly. For 10% I did not taste the alcohol at all; I absolutely love it.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 Excellent variation on the 90 minute. Delicious DIPA with a clear oak flavor. I works categorize this as the whiskey drinkers beer. Well worth the price.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle. Pours clear caramel in color. Nice grapefruit rind with some sweet 90-minute-like malt. Alcohol is present, but very smoothly wrapped up in the flavors. Very decent double IPA, but this hophead still prefers other fine offerings in the domain.
