Lacking nothing, at ten percent alcohol by volume and 95 International Bitterness Units, the Decadent truly represents all that is self indulgent when it comes to drinking beer.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2008
[22 oz. bottle] Resinous hop aroma, some caramel sweetness. Very bright amber color, with a tiny bit of foam. Flavors are initially quite sweet, with a strong, complex hop flavor trying to balance thing out. Dense mouthfeel. Finishes with a pretty strong alcohol warmth.

ReadySetToke (12) - - JUL 17, 2015
Very solid Imperial IPA right here, strong hoppy flavor, acceptingly bitter, and hits the spot when craving a delicious IPA. Would definitely buy this stuff again, and was decently priced compared to other 22oz IPA’s at 10% ABV

BlackHaddock (4929) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2015
Split between five on 27th June 2015 at the 2nd Annual Midlands tasting. I picked this Bomber up on a recent trip to the US for such a tasting session. Poured a clear golden amber, with a white topping. Aroma had hints of orange within a mixed bowl of stewed fruits and malty esters. Taste also leaning towards an orange like flavour and fruity and semi-sweet from the malts: alcohol boost throughout: Decent.

2nd annual Midlands tasting group. Bottle thanks to Blackhaddock, cheers Jeremy. Golden Amber beer with medium head. Aroma of stewed fruits and sweet malts. Taste is marmalade, stewed fruits, some sweetness, pine resin and un hidden alcohol. Some stickyness on the palate. Good.

jesperhammer (3496) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2015
26-JUN-2015, bottle @home, from Kihoskh. Hazy orange with lasting, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is hoppy off course but also very heavy malty with fruit and pine. Taste is peach, grape fruit, orange peel, caramel, dried fruit. Heavy and bordering a Barley Wine but never alcoholic. Sweet and bitter with full body. I love this heavy and sweet type of IIPA.

sthlm (1252) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2015
[On-tap at SKA] Dark gold with a small white head. Taste is very sweet with a good amount of alcohol present. Honey, grapefruit, and some lemon in the background. Hard to finish even a sampler, so I can’t imagine trying to drink a whole glass or bottle.

Garrold (2613) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear amber. Film, and halo, of sticky, lasting, white head. Dank, jammy, spicy hop. Fruity, and boozy. Taste is unctuous sweet. Turns chewy, rich, bitter. Rich, smooth, nicely boozy palate. Finishes long, full, fruity bitter. Never loses the sweetness. Big beer. Liked this a lot.

GreatDane1632 (1058) - Alabama, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Rated based on notes taken 24 Apr 2012 -- Poured from a waxed bomber while at IFS. I really liked this as an imperial beer. Didn’t quite get the great hop character out of it. Still, an overall delish beer.

Slipstream (2229) - USA - MAY 5, 2015
Cool Grateful Dead like label. Dark gold pour with a fluffy head. Plenty of hop bitterness - some iron, capsicum nip, resin. Aroma is pleasant and floral, and it is warm and tingly on the palate. Very good, but not a top shelf IIPA.
