3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not a strong and intense as the Anderson Valley Imperial Stout. Better taste that still very rich and malty. Enjoyed this overall but definitely for the rare occasion.
Edit; enjoying the flavor. Could have 1-2 of these in an evening. Needs to be sipped and would go well with....??

Bottle. Dark pour with light brown pour. Smells of dark malts, chocolate, dark fruits and slight wood. Tastes sweet on the front with a slight lingering bitterness. Very good

Boozy aroma of raisin, fig, vanilla, caramel. Appearance is opaque dark brown with a creamy long lasting head. Interesting flavor that I didn’t expect from the aroma. I taste a distinct flavor like a spruce tree, probably from the wood it was aged on. This is very unique, I couldn’t detect the wood aging in the aroma. A good surprise and nice find.

Aroma- Cherries, raisins, chocolate, booze (but the good kind), caramel, something that reminds me of oats, light smoke, hoppy spice, and vanilla.
Taste- This is one of those that goes from good to glorious as it warms. Sweet mix of dark fruits in the very beginning. Beautiful combination of coffee, chocolate, and caramel comes next, morphing into wonderful dark roast coffee. Spice, dark chocolate, and coffee aftertaste that fades into a light raisin flavor.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
"Bottled on 02/11/08." Dark beer with a thin brown head. Deep rich nose of dried fruit, roasted malts and alcohol. I have not had a fresh one of these, but this is a gorgeous beer with this much age on it. Buttery smooth with nice woody tones, dark caramel, rich fruit cake, salty chocolate, and a gentle alcohol caress. For 12% this is a silent killer. Very nice beer and I’m now looking for more to age.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark brown without much of a head. Has a very strong wood aroma and flavor. I don’t get much else due to how overpowering the wood flavor is, but there is also some sweet caramel and malts. Has a full body feel and goes down smooth. The aroma and flavor are both very powerful. The alcohol presence may be a tad high, but this is one delicious ale.

Another gem from dogfish head. Malty roasted goodness with an infusion of the wood. Very very impressed.

Tasted on tap at DFH Brewings & Eats with ML. Pours dark brown/black with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate, expresso, vanilla, and cherry. Flavour is burnt sugar, chocolate, coffee, molasses, vanilla, and candied fruit. Full body, nice carbonation. What a statement for a Brown!
