12oz bottle - pours an orangey amber color with a medium soapy off white head. Kinda weird aroma with whiffs of bread, pine, caramel, herbaceousness and subtle oak. Interesting flavors....caramel, pine, oaky wood, sourdough and a lingering funky bitterness. crispaire (247) - - NOV 5, 2016
Pours a nice amber, wooden color. Nose - vanilla, wood, sweet malts, raisins. Taste - much of the same. Pretty smooth brew for its ABV%. Fuller body with a sticky sweet texture, almost too sweet for me. Personally this is a sipper, and one is more than enough. PhillyCraft (7990) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
I never rated Dogfish beers because I didn’t want to put out too much negativity but this one, I actually enjoyed in 2009-2010. Pours a brown color with an amber tint and average head. Smell is bourbonn oak, plum, caramel malt, orange skin and toffee. Medium to fuller body with less than avg carb. Couldn’t drink this now but enjoyed it back in the day mateuszk (2769) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle. Amber in colour, white and small head. Aroma is malty with light fruitiness, not much of hops left just some pine, finish is oaky. Full bodied, the beer is medium sweet with caramel, biscuits and solid bitterness. Oily texture, soft carbonation, light warming effect in finish. Really good Barleywine-ish beer. tapefuzz (871) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 15, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy rich amber with a large off-white head. Aroma is oak, malt, pine, and light fruit. Taste is sweet caramel up front followed by citrus, pine, oak, whiskey, and toffee. Resiny, piney finish. Strong bitterness. Full body. Average carbonation.

Pours copper with a thick off white head. Aroma of caramel malts and pine. Initial flavour is sweet caramel and oak and finishes with a resiny pine bitterness. A very complex beer. Doofgoblin (513) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Pretty awesome. It has the taste and feel of an old ale with punch of hops. The bitterness is strong but somewhat subtle to the toffee, burnt sugar, and leather flavors that give way to a rich and delicious body. The bitterness helps with the cloying sweetness. 10% abv that’s sneaky. teamsale (317) - Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a thick beige head and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt and complex hops. Tastes about as good as a beer can get with extremely complex flavors. The aftertaste is sweet and bitter, with lingering flavors. This beer is absolutely amazing. mysticbrew (121) - - JUL 27, 2016
Pours a golden amber with a tight off-white head that is fairly persistent. The aroma is a subtle citrus with resin & malt. There's a big malt flavor with subtle grapefruit and a note of vanilla & bourbon .... the texture is creamy on the palate with a quick dry finish of hope resin.
