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

BelgianBeerGal (3952) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2011
12oz bottle of unknown age picked up after Thai food in Oregon neighborhood. Pours a nice bronze color with a big, foamy, tan head. Pretty big aroma where the caramel malt notes actually dominate the initial hoppiness. The biggest thing I cant believe about the flavor is how well the 13+ ABV is hidden. Although well disguised, I think the booze might dominate the other flavors.

kathouse (1752) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - FEB 26, 2017
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.

Sweet sticky aroma, heavy sugary malts, some woody bitterness. Hot heady taste - booze and sugar. Herbal, spicy, perfumey. So perfumey, Id say this could be something that tramps would drink. Nuts. Doesnt work for me at all.

Vestergaard (2004) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2016
From tap at Fermentoren Aarhus as 12%. Pours a reddish, darkish amber with a small, off white head. Aroma has heavy caramel malts, old orange, old hops, very oldschool. Taste is very caramel sweet up front, actually quite nice, but gets replaced by a very high bitterness, that reminds you that this is not a barley wine, just an old IIPA, haha! Full bodied and with an average to low carbonation.

cobaink2 (566) - seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 25, 2016
12 oz bottle. Bottle almost 2 months old and seems to have turned toward a little malty and less hops. Much like a young barleywine. It's nice but not as I had expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
