A: Pours a nice clear golden honey color; pinky width head, medium lacing.
S: Lots and lots of sweet malts. No hint of hops at all
T: BOOM! Super super sweet, sticky malt assaults the tongue; good amount of toffee and caramel push through as well. Not at all what I was expecting from a DIPA. No trace of hops whatsoever.
M: Rich, creamy, thick and full-bodied; exactly what I look for in a DIPA.
O: Jesus christ it was like drinking carbonated malt-syrup soaked with toffee and caramel. Thank god I was drinking this at a tasting or I would never have been able to finish the bottle myself. It's ironic because I LOVE thick, sweet beers, but this thing was just waaay too much to handle. Interesting for a tasting, but would never spend money on it.

Holy oak taste, Batman!
Forget aged in oak. This tastes like I'm just drinking right out of the barrel. Oak, brown, tannins. That's what this beer tastes like. Also some hops and malt... but mostly just oak.
No real good aromas to speak of.
What am I drinking? Sigh. Drinkable and unique, but wouldn't have it again
Serving type: on-tap
