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

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a stemmed La Fin Du Monde glass. The color is a dark amber/maroon with a finger and a half foamy off-white head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell is hoppy with some interesting malt background. There is some interesting fruity aromas that come out in big beers like this. An orange and grapefruit aroma that is sweet and sour at the same time. The taste is so sweet with a malty flavor I have to stop in my tracks and pry the different flavors apart. There is a grapefruit flavor that is sweet ad sugary and is so sweet it takes on a sugary mass of flavor with some slight orange and other citrus flavors as it makes up the tent-pole of this beer. There is a sugary flavor that is holding in the hoppy bitterness and keeps it from taking over. This beers flavor is turned up to eleven. The feel of this beer is big, there is a whole lot of beer here and it is nothing to toy with. Some truly great back-end flavors and a nice slap on the back from the ABV is there to say hello. A beer with a smooth feel and a big kick.

dnstone (2979) - 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

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

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.

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.
