Hard to rate as its such a strong beer. Really tastes like a liquor. Was pretty good though. Definitely worth a try if you drink liquor.

If you can't find or afford a bottle of this, mix equal parts Madeira and Sherry with a splash of Marsala and you've got it. Each batch does very from the previous, so some are much better than others.

Glad I had a healthy serving of this finally. A little strong for me - it appears Dogfish 120 is my upper limit! Fantastic as a liqueur, not quite top of my list beer-wise but excellent for sure.

I was on the fence giving this one a perfect score, since it doesn't have any true resemblance to beer, but more like a port wine, cognac, liquor combo type of drink. With that said all attributes of this booze conconction truly are amazing to sip a few oz. worth. Dark fruit, vanilla, slight smoke from wood, smooth finish like the finest of liquors. If you ever get the opportunity to try it, definitely do so.

Wow ! The velvet taste and aroma of fruits and vanilla are truly extraordinary. Sam hit this out of the park.
