12 oz bottle packaged on 4-17-08. Served up in a DFH chalice.

A: 120 Minute hits the glass a medium to light brown with a copper tinge to it. Held to the light, it remains pretty much the same in color. The body is cloudy, murky and dense in the center. Carbonation activity is incredibly lazy but it adequately feed a a creamy half finger of pristine white head. Very little stick on the glass, but the head has great retention.

S: A bit abrasive here. Aroma is bring on headache level fumes similar to that of pine floor cleaner. A bit floral at times. Sweetness is all over the place, but there is a noticable amount of caramel involved here.

T: Luckily not as wacky as the smell. It is almost English BW-like by starting with nutty and dark fruit notes. There is also a tinge of apricot coming through. Caramel and brown sugar kick in with the rise of alcohol flavor. Pine resin beats this one home with some bite.

M: Medium in body with a light carbonation. The beer has a light creaminess to it, but it dries out completely thanks to the remaining hop attack. ABV is still doing work with plenty of heat on the throat. Aftertaste is all pine.

OA: It is a bit of a whirlwind. Aroma is harsh, but the flavor brings some pleasant qualities but also some not so pleasant. It does shine in feel and appearance, but that only gets you so far. Don't know if I will ever drink this one again, but I have to say it is an experience as billed.

Served In: Goblet

A slight chill haze yellowy-orange color, very thin white head barely lasts, but not expected really much there with the 18%. Fairly good amounts of delicately thin lacing though.

Not much aroma wise, mostly some very soft butterscotch-like warmth in alcohol, seemingly malty sweet mostly with light touches of waxy fresh hops.

Taste is quite warm, moderate malty sweetness mostly, a bit complex yet mild, subdued fruityness of melons and a few darkened qualities with yellow raisin and fig. Some toffee and butterscotch meld together with a schnapps-like boozy warmth. Ends with a little extra kick of warmth, somewhat port-like and/or even vinous in character.

Feel is well rounded, smooth, clean, and pretty full with a little burn of booze nearer the end and has some nice lingering sweetened mixtures that come through late in the finish...ah yes more malts...and more warmth. This is a major sipper and a great warmer-upper. I can see how some would be put off by its unusual presense and unexpected character, I went in with an open mind not trying to judge it from what I knew about the long hopping process this brew has. I was either expecting something overly hoppy or heavy malted, its the later, more like a sweeter aged barleywine then anything. Quite nice.

12 ounce bottle thanks to chadbrew
Poured aggresively into chalice and produced fantastic 1-2" head!! Copper in color with fluffy off-white head and slight carbonation. Aroma from the hops was not as prominent as I thought it would be. Oaky alcohol on the nose woth fruit. I was expecting an absolute hop bomb but it wasn't. Great citrus tones with a little grassiness to it. The maltiness balanced this beer so well. Very thick mouthfeel. Definately looking forward to the other bottle.

Serving type: bottle
