So excited I was able to finally get my hands on this.

Pours a dark ruby with a shred of light coming through. Translucent, but dark. Half a finger of white head.

Nose has booze, some bourbon characteristics, sweet malts. Very slight hop aroma consisting of pineapple and citrus.

Big strong and boozy. Very sweet, like a barleywine. A bit of hop presence, though not enough to call it an IPA I’m afraid, dry pineapple and citrusy hops. Warming sweet finish. Reminds me of Dogfish 120. Good but more of a barleywine than an IPA.

Slick and frothy for such a big beer. A bit of boozy warming and a sweet finish in the throat.

This is really good. Reminds me of a lesser DFH 120. Not really for hopheads, more for big beer fanatics, either way it’s good.
