Bomber into oversize wine glass
A – 1 finger of dusty blonde foam on top of a beautiful copper red clear amber color, moderate retention time to a thin layer and some lacing 4
S – Hoppy florals, sweet malts, leather, resiny citrus, pine wood and alcohol. A big complex nose. 4
T – My first drink was too big. Oak & pine, orange zest hop bitterness throughout, caramel malt sweetness. Notes of: bing cherry, vanilla, toffee & slight smoke. A big boozy beer. 3.5
M – Smoothness adds a lot to this complex brew. Moderate to heavy body that was sticky, a sipping beer with moderate carbonation 3.5
O – Glad I tried a bomber but won’t be buying another. A good sipping beer with company. 4

Pours a deep, rich copper colored body beneath the rocky off-white head which is slow to dissolve leaving a dense, sticky lacing in its wake.
The aroma offers a unique blend of earthy hops, sweet caramel and Munich malt, vanilla, and wood notes. I'm sure the two years this beer has on contributes to what the senses detect.
This is quite tasty and two years after the fact the generous malty backbone of caramel and breads malts are a bit more pronounced than the earthy hops. There is a sweetness of dark fruits as well at this point and generous woodnotes and vanilla.
This is a big chewy beer with a dry woody finish and medium carbonation amidst the massive body.
This is a good wood aged DIPA with great elements of hops, malt, and wood notes all well balanced. The woody aspects do not dominate this beer which is appreciated.
