Picked this bomber up at Rozi's in Lakewood, OH. Bottled on date says Jul 02, 2009.
A: Pours a brownish shade of amber with off-white/light tan frothy head that settles down and leaves lots of lacing on the glass.
S: Smells mostly of caramel malts, vanilla, woodsy scents, very faint hops
T: very similar to the smell - caramel malts, vanilla, wood/oak, faint hops. just like I would expect from a wood aged dipa - has some complexity due to the wood aging
M: nice and full bodied, highly carbonated, coats the palate
D: above average drinkability if you ask me, the flavor is nice and somewhat complex - no hint of the 10% ABV

have a few of these in the cellar, time to break one out and see what's what...
2 fingers of snowy white head, sticky sticky sticky, this one leaves a bread crumb trail all the way down leaving no doubt where it has been, ample carbonation keeps the head well fed, lovely microbubble sheets roll around, nicely done, this is one good lookin' brewski
citrus and wood... who would have guessed? your first instinct is hops but the wood is definitely toning it down and adding something, there is a mellow booziness throughout, old orange rind, the nose is interesting but I don't love it, the hop florals kind of smelling like termite wood.
strange.. the flavor is of ashen wood with some bitterness, it is exceptionally smooth mouth wise but the flavor is throwing me a bit, some dark honey notes, there is just something off I can't quite place my finger on, perhaps this sat too long (bottled 7/2009).
this has lost it's kick imo, without a more assertive hop profile this kind of tastes like soaked wood, too bad, the look and feel of the brew is excellent.
