COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is more than a limited edition offering. It’s an enigma in liquid form. At first it looks like a deep mahogany ale, then you take the first sip and notice its distinct hoppy character. We begin with a ridiculous amount of Cascade and Chinook hop varietals from Western Colorado and bring out their flavor with the hop back. Then we double dry hop for even more of that aroma you love. The result is an unforgettable beer from the forgotten time.

Bottle, 75cl corked, courtesy of plovmand. A dark amber beer, clear, and topped by a small, beige head leaving lacings. Nice, resiny hops in the aroma, good meaty maltyness and some alcohol. The flavor is sweet and caramel-like in the back, with resiny, piney hops up front. Nice bitterness lasting beyond the end. Full-bodied and almost astringently bitter. Some warming qualities too. A bit sweetish, especially in the end, but there’s enough bitterness to cope with it. Would still like it drier though. A really nice one, tasteful, big and worth an hour with your favorite chair and glass. 100814

750 ml bottle from Randall’s. Poured a deep, cloudy dark amber color with a huge, rocky beige head. Aroma had some hops left (Cascade for sure), despite being about a year old- also earth, roasted malts, peppery spices, toasted caramel, and nuts. Flavor of earthy Cascade hops, pine resin, roasted caramel malts, dry wood, pepper, and chocolate. Medium-bodied, with an earthy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Pretty nice beer and wish I would have opened this a bit fresher.

Tasted from a 750mL bottle so kindly left for me after the CBC events earlier this year. Pours super dark amber that lets just a little bit of light through with a massive beige head that leaves frothy and rocky lace. The nose is brown sugar and caramel malt with a good amount of resin hops and a forest floor earthiness. The flavor is intensely bitter with some citrus up front with the caramel and brown sugar coming through on the mid-palate and then finishing with some of the more resinous flavors. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter finish.

Brown with a small off-white head. Aroma has roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, with a fruity note. Sweet fruity and chocolate dark flavour

2009 750mL bottle as a gift. Poured a rich dark brown/mahogany with a thick creamy biege head that persisted through the entire glass, lacing nicely. Arom is punchy with touches of booze and loads of hops. Flavor was a bit muddy, with that hop load drowning out the underlying nutty flavors. Finish was strangely weak and short-lived compared to the powerful aroma and initial burst of flavor. Body was somehow creamy and oily all at once, which explains why this beer confused me instead of impressing.

75cl bottle. Large beige head atop hazy dark brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, orange/grapefruit, light ginger, bittersweet chocolate, raisin. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit/pine, caramel, some spice, chocolate, raisin/plum. Effervescent medium body, some resin , alcohol well contained.

Nutty transparent brown in color with a thick, light tan head thats fluffy and leaves some lacing. Smell is complex and wonderful. I’m getting loads of malt, wine barrell, toffee, licorice, and buttery bread in the nose. Taste is as complex and very balanced. Notes of wood, cocoa malt, a heavy handed dose of floral hops, caramel, and a gentle touch of nuttiness. Super malty yet super hoppy. Fantastic. Warm, smooth, crisp, delightful. The only problem? $17 per bottle. Uncool.

At first I thought I was smelling an overaged hop brew,but then this zingy sharp pine hop aroma kept blowing out,still think i detect oldness here,but there is a really nice hopbacked by malt cloud I’m enjoying, flavor is a surprise a whole different malt scheme ,smooth chocolate brownie malting with the hops now in the background,not that this is a chocolate stout or anythinglike that,but thats the only way to describe this distinct malting,having said all that ,the hops keep coming at you and are now dominating ,a very interesting multifaceted brew

Caged/corked, vintage 2009. The initial pour is full of piling foam, burying a dusty orange-brown beer beneath. The aroma is magnificent, full of rich, sinewy tones of wood and resin. This drinks with a muscular body, rife with complex nut, pinecone, and toffee. Outstanding. (#3984, 9/13/2010)
