Bottle. Slightly cloudy deep amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is oaky with caramel, mango, citrus. Taste is also oaky, quite complex with mango, caramel, subtle citrus and slight bready notes. Didn’t love this as much as expected, but I could see it aging really well.

Bottled 2015 batch. Poured in glass. An amazing brew with great complex notes and a killer finish on the palate. Smooth and gentle enough for a long night but complex enough to sip and savor, taking your time with it. Good stuff.

4.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Unremarkable aroma, not floral or citrus, mostly oak. pours a beautiful dark reddish amber with off white head. Great lacing. The oak flavor dominates and some alochol comes through, but not enough to be unpleasant. One of my favorites.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From QC. Drank with Matt after Braedon's birthday. Pours clear a brown-tan. White sudsy head with huge bubbles and streaky legs. Smells of lightly bready malt, pear, banana, light Christmas-y spices, dry hop. Taste is lemony, dry, resinous and bitter, spice. Body is slick, heavy but smooth - most like the 90 Minute IPA in palate, I think. Oak barrel flavour is present but restrained, dry and spicy. Tasty interesting beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber. Aroma is sweet malt, and flavor is much more barley wine than double IPA. Not particularly malty at all. Will revisit at a later date.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from QClub at home. Slightly translucent copper amber pour with frog eyed crop circley head (yeast?). Aroma is not that strong, but quite nice - hops and booze but rounded by the oakiness. The 90-min IPA characteristics are evident. Taste is similar. Big boozy hoppy bitterness. Incredibly pine resinous, but rounded out by oaky and sweet malty smoothness. Really nice - like a more complex 90-minute IPA. Would definitely get again, but a bit steep at $65.
