750ml poured into a Flying Dog goblet

I was so excited to find this along with a Fort since I love DFH and want to try as many of their stuff as possible since they got me into DFH. Luckily, this was bottle-conditioned, otherwise I don't think it would of held up as well.

A: It is a nice thick cloudy amber brown with a nice head on it.

S: The smell is of subdued hops, like a mellow and aged 90 minute IPA, such as it is. It has that distinct malty hop smell of citrus and pine, but mainly of the malts. Boozy smells as well.

T: Imagine taking a 90 minute IPA and taking away the hops, that is what it tastes like now. It is like a bare bones 90 minute, since all you taste is distinctive malt backbone of the 90 minute along with the slight hint of booze. I would say that it kind of tastes like a weird or bad barleywine. However, it isn't exactly bad, but it is really interesting. It is boozy malts with a bit of hops.

M: There is still quite a bit of carbonation here but again it is subdued and subtle with only a bit of coarseness.

O: I got to say bottle conditioning is great and this bottle proves it. It has held up surprisingly well for over 2 years. The cover is great as well.
