4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I was surprised to see a big selection of Dogfish Head around here recently, so i grabbed a six of this and a big bottle of the 90 minute IPA. After the 90 minute IPA my tongue was a bit numb, and after following that with 4 of these, my brain also numbed. Luckily I had two left to rate: Dark with a thin oily head that dissolved rather quickly. An oaky cognac and sweet maple nose. The alcohol makes a strong presence, but the mix of so many other flavors (even in the aftertaste) makes it very desirable. I hope there is some left when i go back!

A splendid dark ale with a smooth sweet taste, also very strong , got buzzed off like 3 of these babies. Tough to find, but definitely worth the buy.

Very excited to finally try this beer, and the wait was well worth it. Complex aroma and palate that left me stumped the emtire beer, but satisfied. Great sipper that I would love to have on a cold night.

Canít get too enthused about this one, especially when it had a Traquair Jacobite sitting next to it, which blows it away in the spice/herb/veggie category.

This turned out ot be a bigger beer than I expected. Very clear auburn-like appearance & a whiskey-ish alcohol aroma. Great malt flavor/ sweet but not cloying. Very nice!

we first discovered this beer about 2 years ago, and labeled it ífun beerí because of the night that always ensued.
I love sweet light beers, and also dark stouts and porters...i found this to be the almost perfect mix of all the things that i love about beer.

This beer was a pleasant surprise. A sweet light alcohol nose, mahogany color, oily mouthfeel and enough flavor for a six-pack. At first I was afraid of this one, because I donít like raisons. Now Iím wishing that I bought a case when I had the chance.

Very interesting beer. It does have a smokiness to it that Iím not sure whether I love or hate (depends on the sip). This one is definitely worth trying more than once.
