UPDATED: MAR 16, 2015 750ml bottle shared with jeevan. Pours hazy amber, thick white head, nice lacing. Aromas are citrus, grassy hops, light resin and almost cheesy hops. Light funk for sure. Taste is sweet up front, fruity, sultanas, light herbal bitterness. Sweet linger.

Pours an amber beer with a beige head. Lots of head. Aroma has some dark fruit hints. Smells sweet. Taste is very malty, some sweetness and bitterness as you swallow it down. Full body. Some alcohol warmth at the back.

Hoprider (111) - DENMARK - MAR 7, 2015
Hazy brown pour with a light beige head. Aromas of herbal resinous hops and full malty, nutty sweetnes to acompany the hoppy freshness. The taste is very ’american barleywine’ with its emphasis on the hoppy qualities. Full, fesh and rich in taste with only a slight amount of fruity notes. Medium mouthfeel with a medium to soft carbonation. Aftertaste as expected.. Hoppy and lingering.. Good.

angel77 (1206) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 6, 2015
Botella de 85 cl del rincón de la cerveza, tomada en el momento el 06-03-2015 en llamas. Color cobrizo turbio con bastante espuma persistente. Aromas maltosos algo tostados con toques dulces también tostados y algo herbáceo y resinoso al final. Cuerpo medio a intenso con.... vol que se notan bien y le dan buena sensación licorosa. Sabores maltosos dulce de caramelo tostado y cereales con final amargo, ligeramente resinoso y duradero por un buen rato. Una barley wine dulce, tostada con grandes dosis de amargo seco y resinoso. Solo un pelin por debajo de la b.a. grand marnier. Buenisima!!!!

AgentAle (916) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Aroma is roasted malts, pineapple, apple, honey and an earthiness. Taste is sweet malts and a fairly deep hop profile that has clove, lemon grass and hay. Finishes with light tanin and liquor snap. Appearance is a cloudy orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

thepeter (296) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
pours orange hazy and smooth with sticky lacing and nice head. Nose explodes with pine and some orange rind/ zest. Taste is similar with a load of pine and citrus rind giving it bitterness that is clean but not overly complex. a hint of orange sweetness but not very much. Palate was medium heavy but oh so drinkable. Very smooth. Should add that this was a three year old bottle.

Mjp12 (566) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Poured from its 750ml l bottle, a hazy copper orange, with a Belgian style head that soon recedes. Belgian style yeas mix with tropical fruits, as someone else said, in a blind tasting, I would have this as a DIPA or triple IPA, it doesn’t have the sweetness that I associate with barley wines. Loads of fresh hops on the finish. This is a great beer, and very easy drinking.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Tasted on 11/12/11 on draft at the Three Floyds Anniversary party. Pours bright burnt orange with an average beige head that slowly recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is hoppy resin bitterness with sweet caramel and toffee malt. The flavor is sweet caramel and toffee, a somewhat burnt note, and plenty of bitter resin hops. The body is full and syrupy with average carbonation and a long caramelized and bitter resin hops finish.

Very tasty beer. Big thick sticky sweet boozy barley wine and at the same time easily drinkable and smooth.
