Did the 120 minute last night. Had it with a steak for dinner. Initially tasted alot like the 90 minute but somewhat stronger. It was good but I don't think it was worth $8.99 a bottle instead of 4 bottles of 90 minute for the same cost. About a half hour later, I was done for the night. It hit me really hard. I've heard the 120 minute described as a strong IPA with a shot of grain alcohol and that seems somewhat accurate. Great taste however.

Found bottles of the 120 in the store last night at $8.99 per bottle (!). Bought two. Gonna have one bottle tonight with a steak for dinner (finace is out of town). Saving the other one for Thursday when we have dinner with her roomie and her boyfriend. He got me into homebrewing so I figured I owed him half of it to try.

We'll see how it goes. I am very much looking forward to trying the 120 since IPAs are easily my personal favorite (unless I'm in the mood for a Mexican, lighter, beer) and Dogfish Head really works for me (plus I go to Ocean City, MD atleast once per month and we head up to their brewery every once in a while).

Well, 21% ABV will put just about anyone down. I remember the first time I had it, I was really paranoid and drank it over the course of an hour, and I was still quite toasty. Welcome to the forum BTW!

Well, I haven't been able to enjoy a second one yet because I finally got sick. I've gone all season without a cold, flu, sinus or throat infection, and it's finally set in. I am still a true believer that homebrew does prevent winter illness, as I've posted my experiences in other threads on the issue with many supporting arguments. Whatever I've got, had to be a doosey to get a hold on me.

Anyway...

When I'm better, I'm going to pour another one of these beers for a second try. I'm certainly not going to drink'em in the state I'm in now; can't taste or smell sh!t... seems like a waste of beer.

Believe it or not, I had some Burton Baton from last year and the wood was too overwhelming in it. I was leary, but I had some of this years at the past beer dinner at the brewpub, and Wow!! It was a totally different beer. So I mentioned it, and they have changed the recipe a bit from last year. I'd say it's a good thing!!
