Great overall beer, I'm not by any means an expert on this stuff. I love my IPA's and when this came to me via a client who wanted to get rid of beer her ex left behind I figured what's the worst that could happen, like it or dump it down the drain.
This never got close to a drain, great beer!!

Pours a hazy dark red-amber with some floaties. Nice finger and a half of light tan creamy head, which leaves a bit of lacing despite the abv.
Smell is earthy oak, sweet dates and toffee, and a big hint of the 10% abv
Taste is big wonderful malt and oak, significant alcohol burn, vanilla, maple, and hints of citrus in the aftertaste. Balanced sweeter than 72 IBU's would let on.
Firm body is slightly lightened by significant CO2 and alcohol.
I haven't tried a lot of DFH's BA efforts, not through lack of interest but mostly lack of availability (and my own ignorance). This one is so big, boozy, sweet and woody it strikes more like a light barleywine than a double IPA. I'd love to taste one of these with a few years of proper cellaring, but it certainly is wonderful right now.
