3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprised to spot this at Wegman’s today. Wonder if it has been there for years and I just noticed it? Dark hazy amber, some lacing. Attractive to me. Really malt dominated nose, heavy caramel and booze notes. Taste is nice, full, lots going on. Very well balanced, enough hops to kick it over from barley wine country. I liked the Double Wench.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle - 22 oz) Copper pour with a thin white head. Sweet and piney hops with a touch of sugar and caramel in the nose. Sweet and malty but then a quick change to bitter and peppery hops. Dries out the sweetness nicely and leaves a lightly bitter aftertaste. Nicely balanced.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2015 Lively tan head on a surprisingly dark brown body. Significant nose of Grapefruit, bubble gum and rum. Taste is dominated by bready malt, with subplots of resigny hops, caramel, prunes and boozy warmth. The hops present in the nose are there, but muted by the 12% ABV and malt presence. This is a very rich tasting, mid-bodied DIPA. Enjoyable as a sipper. Lovely balance but a bit light on complexity.

Taste of toffee, raisins, piney and other hops, rum, raspberries, caramel and cherries.
Full/medium body and medium/high carbonation.
A bit like a cross between a barleywine and a double IPA. Delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle shop in Cortland. The aroma is caramel, brown sugar, resin, citrus. A bit sour and earthy as well. The appearance is a DARk amber, ruby color, off-white head. The flavor is caramel, bready, resiny, citrusy. The finish is resin, citrus, strong, lasting hop bitterness. Medium/thick in body. Slight booze warming after a minute, but overall the booze is farly well hidden here. Very good.
