Bottle. Okay, I love Three Floyds, I love Mikkeller, and I love De Proef (I know, it was only brewed at De Proef, but hey they were involved), so I’m pretty stoked for this! Dark brown pour, deep amber highlights. Aroma is sweet and malty, with soft fruity undertones. Rich malty palate, some burnt sugars and breadcrusts, toasted cocnut, cooked peaches, bitter hoppy finish. Big, but somehow not cloying. Warming finish. Loved it.

zacgillbanks (1860) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a hazy copper coloured beer that pours with a large foamy head. It has pineapple and spicy berry flavours with a malty, zesty tropical fruit, and peppery hop flavour, followed by a warming sherry-like finish. Excellent!

750ml bottle pours dark cloudy brown orange with big 3 finger head. Nose is doughy cracker, raisin, fig. Taste is sticky bready raisin, maple, earthy malt, dough, booze. Finish is oily fig newton, malty bread, dark grains. Weird.

Vintage bottle from the Brick Store Cellar shared with Westmeister and deadCATatlanta. Pours a hazy pear with big white head. Hopped up like a big IIPA. Very odd that hoppiness remained. Bottle - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

mansquito (3114) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Spuytin Duyvil, Brooklyn tap: Pours reddish brown with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty brutal hoppiness, sugar, caramel, malts, and more malts, buckwheat. Taste is quite bitter, with a thick aggressive sweetness. This one is a sipper amongst sippers for sure. It probably took me about 45 minutes to get through the wine glass pour. Well-crafted, but it is not what I would seek out.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 Arom: fruktig, aprikos ton till fruktig humle, och bröd. Söt, fruktig. Smak: söt mörk kola, fruktig och bitter och lång eftersmak. En intensiv och fyllig öl.

danielyabu (1087) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - MAR 15, 2014
large frothy offwhite head. excellent lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick darl orangeish-amber body. aroma: moderate malty, caramel, mild coffee, moderate hoppy, alcohol. if: heavy sweet moderate bitter. ff: heavy bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, heavy alcoholic finish. Presença amarga lupulada surge como estranha no ninho, mas é sobrepujada pelo dulçor, mantendo, assim, um pouco da característica do estilo. Não esconde nada do teor alcoólico. Dulçor maltado, lembrando também chá. Background condimentado. Decepcionante por não lembrar BW em quase nada. Final alcoólico amadeirado lembra whisky no começo e algo mais amargo depois. 50 s

Aethien (25) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2014
Nice dark amber colour with spotty lacing. Sweet aroma with ripe fruit, flowers, pine, honey and stingy but not unpleasant alcohol. Piney hoppiness in the flavour with caramel and buckwheat, quite a dry mouthfeel and the alcohol is more hidden in the flavour. Quite a bit more bitter than I expected from the nose as well but not too bitter.

sweet malty heavy with apricots and oranges. Balanced not cloying or sweet or boozy. Nicely done
