COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Have you read the description for the regular Crooked Tree yet? Well this beer is almost the same just double. We actually took the Crooked Tree recipe and doubled all of the ingredients except the water, just the way a DOUBLE should be made. Big hops balanced with tons of malt give this beer a huge body. Although this beer is as cool as "the Fonz" when first purchased, it gets really mellow and smooth with some age. After a year or two stored in a cool dark place youll notice the heavy caramel and malt flavors are trying to sneak past the hops, theyre just not fast enough. This beer is hugely delicious so it will need your undivided attention (the chores can wait....trust us). 98 IBUs

stumpyiliz (217) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle one year old. Piney aroma from opening the cap. Amazing pear and peach aroma upon the pour. Fast dissipating head with resinous piney flavor. Floral hop presence with a bitter resin-ee medium body into the malt bill on to the side of the palate. A triple that really is a barleywine.

(Bottle) Cloudy copper-brown body with a medium beige-cream head. Aroma of malt and tropical fruit; grapefruit, papaya, pine, brown sugar. Medium body, creamy. Flavor is very sweet, malty with citrus and pine hop finish; lots of floral notes and fruit; alcohol is noticeable with warm finish.

dnstone (3016) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Murky, hazed apple cider-like color with and off white head. Dulled hop and cardboard aroma. Sweet malty flavor, with nice balanced piney-earthy hop character. I can tell this beer was great but it has definitely aged which has effected it; would love to try it fresh. Notes: Bottle picked up on MA visit, Mar '17. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dropi6 (308) - POLAND - MAR 4, 2017
Bottle. No date. Pours amber, iridescent, big white head. Very fruity aroma. Lychee, sweet fruits, malts, grapes, berries, fresh plums and honey. At fist, briefly sweet, than dry and bitter. Well hidden alcohol. Thick, low carbonation. I think that unfortunately this bottle wasnt fresh anymore.

C. Pours a clear amber color with white head. If you let it warm up a bit, it isnt quite as harsh. Full flavored, but still harsh. Would probably really like the single

slowrunner77 (11460) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Pine wood and sweet fruit from the aroma and flavor. Pretty bitter, and pretty sweet. Says you can age it, but I wouldnt. Ill get a barleywine if thats what I want. Good fresh, though.

wiadran (189) - POLAND - FEB 27, 2017
aroma woody, citrus, resin, a bit like forest deep amber / cooper colour, top short, big bubbles, reduces fast. some lacing. taste quit sweet, heavy, feels woody, bitterness not high, but leaves long, good aftertaste. a bit to much carbonation, alcohol hidden, worms up. body high, but could expect more.

Reddish brown pour with a lasting foam. Lots of pine, resin, and tropical fruits. The flavor is almost sticky from the hops with a long dry finish.
