On tap at R.D.F. in Washington, DC. 2015 Strong Ale Tasting, where it was listed as "Madness Old Stock Ale 12.4%." After checking 3 Stars website, it appears that "Winter Madness" has been renamed Madness and the ABV has increased from 10,6% to 12.4%. Opaque, hazy, rusty brown with a fine, khaki head and very good lacing. Aroma of caramel, red wine, dark fruit, chocolate, and butterscotch. Taste of alcohol, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate and red wine. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a little ruby and copper tint and a nice, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright english hops, a ton of pit fruits, some yeast and basement must and a lot of deep nuts and caramelised sugars. Full-bodied; Strong pit fruit flavours with a lot of nuts and earth, some mellow yeast and a touch of cherries with a light hop note at the very end. Aftertaste shows a good blend of malt and hops with a lot of earth and nuts, some pit fruits and a touch of deep bitterness. Overall, a nice strong ale with some nutty and earthy flavours and a good deal of bitterness. I sampled this pint on draught at Ironhorse Tap Room in Washington, DC on 23-December-2013.

4oz sample at Churchkey’s 3 Stars 1st Anniversary event. Pours a hazy, caramel amber with one ring of clumpy, beige head. Nose is a mix of booze, chocolate, tropical fruit, caramel, pear. Boozy flavor, can sugar, rum, spice, nail polish, malt, caramel, a little vanilla. Full, spicy finish. A little hot. Seems a bit out of proportion.
