COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The fifth beer made with our brew buddies, Three Floyds. A big and ballsy, tasty Barley wine following the same path as the previous “Goops” made available. This time with corn taking over the throne.

Cirrhosis (1201) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
Hazey honey brown with a thick creamy cap floating on top, looks like a beer. Aroma is lacking, earthy, leather, sweetness, some hidden spice. The aroma is pleasant but where is it? This is dam drinkable, there is not a single trace of the high alcohol..... HOW!?!?! This beer is corny!!! (that was a joke) Really malty with a medium bitter finish, there be a hidden harshness. Leather, sugar, earth, needs more of stuff that has flavour.

tmzl (89) - SLOVENIA - AUG 22, 2014

Look: Pours with average/small off-white head (yellow), mixed with medium and big bubbles. Has fast retention, mostly diminishes, very thin layer stays on the top, leaves low amount of random lacing. Dark cloudy orange, can’t see through.

Smell: Pine, resin, grapefruit hop character combined with strong caramel, heavy bitter (chestnut) honey, some dates and biscuit. The hop part covers stuffier malt backbone, makes the fatness fresher.

Taste: Sweet light orange (and some other topical fruits) start. Continues to propolis, honey and biscuit light to medium sweetness. The middle is uncharacteristic for the style - surprisingly light, but does good for this beer. Pine notes also crawl in towards the end of the middle, and finish in smooth medium bitter spike, mostly pine dominated. It lingers deep in the throat, also some fruity notes come back.

Mouthfeel: Full body, medium heavy, but feels lighter, easy to drink.

Overall: Solid take, the most outstanding quality of this brew is it’s lightness and fresh hop character. Too many barleys are too fat, this one takes a good turn out of this (is this what the corn part does? not sure).

MarcoDL (2143) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle @ molen tasting. Fruity barley wine, with a vinous taste of raisin and malt. Warm and complex taste, like it?s aged a bit. Great.

caesar (5055) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2014
Bottled @ de Molen tasting, small sample. Slight hazy yellow to golden color, short white head. Aroma is slight malty, hint of caramel, slight grainy touch, soft alcohol, bit grassy and spicy hop. Quite sweet, soft bitter, slight alcoholic. Finish is soft burning alcohol. Soft carbonation, low to medium bodied. A bit one-dimensional and slightly alcoholic, but still quite enjoyable.

Swaroga (1315) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Butelka 75cl. OCZY : piwo jest mętne o kolorze pomarańczowym. Piana jest średniej wielkości ale zbita i trwała. Kolor piany to biały. NOS : na pierwszy niuch wyczuwam aromat pomarańczy i skórki pomarańczy, tarty, żywicy i delikatnie alkoholu. Po delikatnym wzburzeniu aromaty się wyostrzają i piwo pachnie świeżo. Można wyróżnić karmel i toffi, rodzynki, kwiaty i miód. Kukurydza jest również wyczuwalna ale nie ma nic wspólnego z DMS. USTA : piwo jest mało gazowane o gęstej konsystencji podobnej do nektaru bananowego czy śmietany. Piwo jest słodkie o dominujących nutach słodowych podobnych do tarty, ciasta z karmelu i miodu. Trochę jak marokańskie wypieki. Wyczuwam delikatnie cierpkie nuty skórki pomarańczy czy nawet pistacji. Piwo nie jest gorzkie ale staje się coraz bardziej wytrawne i aromatyczne co równoważy słodycz. Końcowe nuty wytrawne przypominają rozwodniony miód pitny. Przy końcu chmiel piecze w podniebienie. Pewnie dowalili go mnóstwo na zimno bo nie jest gorzki. Przypomina to skórkę pomarańcza i cynamon. ODCZUCIA : jest to ciekawy barley wine. Biorąc pod uwagę alkohol i gęstość to jest całkiem łatwy w piciu. OCENA : smak : 8/10 pijalność : 6/10 styl : +1
