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

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.

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 (1863) - 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 (480) - 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

Vells (1630) - Rga, Latvija, LATVIA - AUG 25, 2016
Quite huge DIPA, bold in every aspect, but never gets over the line. Juicy fruity cocktail with citrus, tropical fruits, some decent pine kick. Feels oily. Light sweetness with moderate to intense bitterness,
