My roommate and I split a bottle of this after I got off one night at work. Bottled July 2008. It was my roommates first extreme beer. I think his cherry exploded after the firstd taste.
A- Poured into a small plastic cup (I know I know but I was at work). Massive and I mean massive head that never really quite left. I notice if you taste the foam it is nothing but hops. Lacing left everywhere that the foam could touch. Medium murky copper brown appearance.
S- Lots of hop smell to this. Almost a sweet alcohol undertone to this. I couldn't help but smell this for about 3 minutes before I even tasted it.
T- Holy shit...this is almost to extreme for someone who hasn't been prepared for it (seeing the look on my roommates face). Hop undertones that almost get put behind a sugary alcohol taste. Very sweet but seemed a lot more mellow than fresher bottles in the past that I've had.
M- Thick....chewy....coats your mouth in a sugary hoppy goodness.
D- Yea I only drink one of these everytime I am in the mood for a 120. More than that and I'm afraid I would upset my stomach with the sugary sweetness. Kind of like drinking Boones Farm to get fucked up. You puke from the sugar intake not because you are drunk.
Dogfish Head never ceases to amaze me. Much like my roommate who after taking a couple sips doesn't want any more. And instead of letting me finish it for him just slammed it instead. Then wants to complain 5 minutes later that he feels warm...go figure.

Where do I start, this beer completely took me by surprise. Its bold but you can tell that just by reading the outside label. Pouring it and taking in it's aromas, my taste buds started salivating immediately. It has a very potent citrus and pine scent with a very enveloping tone of vanilla and herbs giving it a sturdy weight. The actual taste itself lives up to it's aroma completely. It is very rich with a powerful hop flavor! I picked up on some of the finer notes of vanilla, spice, raisin, and a slight mineral flavor all wrapped up in tangy notes of orange and pine. I love this beer. It is truly complex and makes you think about what your drinking. In my opinion, enjoy this one like a fine scotch or bourbon. Just a few sips and I got a head buzz from all those hops! warm it up a little in your glass and your golden. I plan on buying a couple more bottles and letting them age.
