Bottle, pours lightly-based brass with light sudsy head. Aroma is buttery tropical fruit: papaya, guava. Round and boozy with a bitter orange rind finish. A little rough and tumble.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Drinking this 02/24/15. No idea what the bottling date is. Pours clear orange ruby color. Small white ring of lacing. Aroma is like a really hoppy barleywine. Lots of heat from the 14%. Sweet sticky toffee, some fig and date notes, maybe a bit of burnt sugar, honey, some citrus (orange), grapefruit. Very complex aroma. Flavor is hoppy, boozy, lots of toffee, fig, vanilla notes. Bitter finish. This drinks 100% like a barleywine. Hoppy finish. Reminds me of 21st Amendmentís lower da boom (which is a favorite of mine). Iíve been told this drinks like aged DFH 120. I have never had DFH 120, but thatís supposed to drink like a barleywine over time. This is exactly that. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
June 20th, 2013 - Hereís a Double IPA thatís like a delicious, Danish breakfast in a bottle. Why? The aroma chockablock full of tasty early morning ingredients: caramel and sweet apple (pancake toppings) and the very underrated American cereal "Apple Jacks." For the more natural breakfast food consumer, thereís also a nice sliver of mango in the aroma. The flavor brings more carbohydrates, including rye and buckwheat pancakes, and something uncharacteristically breakfast: a heavy booze notes. The aroma and flavor deliver very different experiences, but I enjoy both, and regret seeing the "Retired" tag here.

Tuoksussa runsaasti appelsiinia. Todella voimakkaan humaloitu maku; jonkinlainen humalan saturoitumisraja lienee jo saavutettu. Korkea alkoholipitoisuus jšttšš suuhun hieman suolaisen jšlkimaun.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"The Mikkeller version of a 120 I guess, though this seems at least a little closer to an IPA. Smells of citrusy and floral hops, along with a healthy dose of sweet biscuity malt. Quite sweet and moderately bitter flavor. Candied citrus and a bit of pine or evergreen. Feel is full, and a bit sticky. Well carbonated and good head for such a strong beer. Alcohol definitely shows as this is very warming, but not hot for the abv."

Bottle. Pours clear amber color with quickly disappearing head. (I think the alcohol is eating it) Nose is sweet citrus and a lot of malt. Taste is similar once you get through the alcohol burn.
