Served into a pint glass from the bottle.
Appearance: Pours a beautiful full copper color with a sturdy two finger cream colored head. Fairly nice head retention for a beer of 10% abv.
Smell: Very sweet in the nose but I can smell a bit of hop in the form of citrus. Plenty of caramel and wood are present as well. Suprisingly no alcohol is noted for such a big beer.
Taste: EEEKKKK! This is one sweet beer! The massive sweetness is a bit off setting at first but as I relax and really dive in, I discover a nice hop bitterness to help keep me afloat amid the torrent of malt sweetness. Some phenolic spice, astringent alcohol and plenty of citrus are present. This really tastes like a barley wine, big and complex.
Mouthfeel: Very full mouthfeel but the presence of 10%abv helps to lean out an otherwise fat beer. Syrup like stickiness that lingers well into the throat.
Drinkability: I was shocked at such a sweetness for only 10%. That being said, this beer has plenty of flavors to keep a beer geek interested but I don't think I could drink more than one due to its cloying nature. I love Dogfish Head beer and applaud them for producing such a ballsy brew. Cheers!

Dogfish head never ceases to impress me. This beer is fantastic. Surprisingly clear for an IIPA. Smell is very smooth. Not extreme on the hops side as I'm sure the Oak Barrels lay it down a bit.
The taste is whats killer. I really cant decribe it. Not too bitter, but has a bight. Not very alcoholish though you can taste it. Yea, Just try it yourself. Maybe others can review it better than me. But I've had a lot of different beers, and this is one I always try to keep in the fridge.
