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.

Middle Ages high-end beers are awesome. If you like strong ales this is your gal. It has a sweetness that is perfect with a full body, great taste too.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
January 6, 2012 - with blankboy, garthicus, gregclow, jerc & mabel. Bomber c/o blankboy. "Those are LARGE boobies!!" Deep ruby-brown with an average frothy tan head (4-). A bit like Stone Double bastard - strong alcohol, very grainy, would be sweet but it’s also quite resiny. Taste is ... big: leafy dry barleywine, boozy acidic. Thick, syrupy, astringent, decent carbonation, somewhat long boozy/bitter finish, although is starts out more sweet than bitter. Maybe some maple syrup in there.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 resign hops, caramel and boozy warmth. The hops present in the nose are muted by the 12% ABV and malt presence. This is a very rich DIPA, but enjoyable as a sipper.
