Thanks to portia99 for cracking this guy.
A: Fluffy head of 1/2 finger (generous size) fades quickly over a semi clear reddish mahogany colored beer.
N: Nice strong ale aroma, lots of malts, semi sweet. Little fruit, apple, apricot, oak, a little whisky, fruity and juicy. Touch of an eathy hop aroma too. Great aroma, but not what I expected.
T: Sweet, holy fuck it's sweet! Hard to drink with how sweet it is. Again lots of malts, not really a DIPA. A strong ale taste, almost barleywine. A little booze with warming feel. Oak with a little whisky, lots of fruit, peace even, apricot, apple, etc. Chewy malts, even a little white chocolate. Creamy, some bitterness and a hint of earthy flavors.
M: Medium to thicker body, little syrupy, decent carbonation.
F: Little spicy and warming booze. Still really sweet, more oak and whisky, some fruit still. A little honey even. A little sticky, still barleywine-esque, creamy and lingering.

Reviewed from notes. Had out of a firkin at CCB tasting room. Poured into a snifter glass.
A: Deep caramel in color, translucent, with a one-finger khaki head and no visible carbonation.
S: Sweet malts, a bit of pine & citrus hops, and boozy. Some roasted caramel.
T: Follows the nose very closely. The hoppiness is still trying to hold on but is clearly losing the battle. Still a little alcohol heat but it does seem tamed. Overall a nice sweetness here.
M: Medium body, smooth & silky mouthfeel. Boozy but the alcohol heat doesn't overwhelm. Minimal carbonation sensation, likely due in part to the firkin serving.
O: Wow, this was very good, and I'm glad I had the chance to try it! Guess they had this one aging for the last couple years. I never had the opportunity to try it fresh, but it sure was tasty as is!

Pours a beautiful but thin golden red color – really beautiful. A small white head tops the beer and quickly recedes. Smells of deep citrus hops so very fruity. First sip has shown some age but this one was kept in my fridge since purchase. The hops have so faded but in its place a pleasant maltiness shines thru to the point of being both chewy and doughy. Super candy sweet notes are upfront and in your face without the hops to balance it. Plenty of toffee too. I keep thinking how nice it would be to have this one fresh and on cedar. I had this one fresh and enjoyed it more than the aged version. Pretty tough to drink but I’ll manage.
