What a great beer to sip as I pack and get ready for a trip to the dominican republic. This 2008 batch pours out a deep rusty amber color with a slightly off-white head. Lacing is quite impressive as it clings to my Delirium snifter. Slight sediment at the bottom of the bottle. The aroma candy-like with strong notes of caramelized sugars and hop spiciness. A little more subdued than I expected, but pleasant. The taste brings together a sense of IPA meets barleywine in a harmonious blend. The richness of the malts and the sharpness of the hops comes together wonderfully, but not at all unbalanced. Unlike others in this style that lean to heavy towards the hops, this one pulls in multitudes of depth while remaining tethered. The mouthfeel is slightly thinner than I would guess for a beer of this nature and statue. The hoppiness leaves a pleasant dryness to the, otherwise sweet, body. Drinkability is truly lethal on this. At 10.5%, it is tough to realize how strong it is until it is too late. Well done and superbly crafted.
