750mL bottle acquired through the Reserve Society. No bottling date, despite the white bar for it on the label. Served in a Burnt Hickory snifter.
Pours a murky mahogany brown with a fluffy three finger bone hued head. That fluff sticks around a long time and leaves large clumps of lace.
Smells of mild pine hops, oranges, caramel and raisin bread.
Taste is somewhere between an out of date DIPA and a barleywine. Musty and earthy like old hops with orange rind, muted pine, toasted grain, slight pineapple, some caramel, a hint of toffee and a small kick of booze. An interesting mix but doesn't quite hit my preferred notes for either barleywine or DIPA.
Semi creamy, slightly oily medium body with a ton of carbonation. Long dry bittersweet orange rind and burnt caramel aftertaste.
Not bad at all but certainly not outstanding. I'm relativley certain that this undated bottle is several months old. I'd have liked to try it fresh when the hops were in peak condition. As it is now, it'll take another 6-9 months to really start hitting the barleywine notes I'd like (and hopefully have the over carbonation settle). That's fine- I have a couple more bottles and I'm patient.

A : Poured a hazy amber color with a dirty white cap. It sports some good head retention and good lacing
S: Big pine hop presence, Christmas trees with a hint of citrus and and brown sugar
T: Big pine start to finish, perhaps juniper, definitely hop forward with a caramel/toffee base. This beer has some moderate heat, moderate bitterness and dry on the finish with a lingering caramel/pine presence. This beer honestly reminded me of vintage Doggie Claws.
M : Medium bodied, medium-high on carbonation, dry, warm, a little sweet but still very hop forward and its packed full of faded hops which gives it a chewy feel
O: Not bad.
