750ml bottle into a matching Bruery snifter. The brew appears a mahogany brown that is clouded with 3 fingers of tan froth. The cap displays solid retention that leaves a webby lace all over the glass.
The aroma is oily and resinous with hops. It is dank and herbal with some catty quality towards the back mixing with suggestions of pine and tea like spiciness. A bit of burnt sugar is thrown into the mix giving something for the hops to play off.
The taste includes hints of raisin and plums mixed into a dark burnt molasses character. Some fruity bitter hops blend with pine,?herbs and strong black tea. Some catty flavors blend into a mild vegetative quality and dirty fruit like cantaloupe or other melon like honeydew. Not bad, but not terribly enjoyable either.
This is a medium to fuller bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. The alcohol is integrated nicely. This is an interesting mixture of character here that really borders the lines of barleywine and boozy DIPA. This will be a huge hit for some, I think it was just ok.

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.
