4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle shared by MisoW at RB Tasting Vienna March Edition. Thanks!
Amber/orange, hazy body, with a big, creamy, light beige head.
Aroma with a lot of fruity hops, like citrus, stone fruits, berries, but also a heavy malt presence of biscuit and honey.
Taste follows this, but with even more honey like malts.
Medium, quite creamy mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes sweet malty, zesty, fruity.
Really tasty! Loads of fruity hops and loads of smooth, sweet malts. Inbetween an Imperial IPA and a Barley Wine in my opinion, if not more on the IIPA side. Whatever it is, very enjoyable, big beer!

Bottle from MisoW, many thanks man. Orange color with medium white head. Sweet malt, citrus hops in aroma. Solid malty base followed by nice citrus hoppy aroma. For me more Imperial IPA than Barley wine, but very tasty.

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.
