2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Firstly, this is a Dipa. This is bar none, without question, not a barley wine. It’s important to distinguish this because there may be those who have not tried a beautiful barley wine, and may turn away from them after trying this. The aroma is hard fresh cut wood and sour citrus peel. The flavor is sugary, stale grass in the beginning with a raw, bitter, hard, acidic, alcoholic, woody and tannic dry finish. Can I get some positive grain presents please? Not here I can’t. Thank you three floyds and mikkeller. 2012 25oz.

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Strong malt and sweet aroma with some alcohol. Nice earthy copper color, almost like apple cider with a thick foamy head. Full mouth feel but lighter than expected. Good carbonation. Strong mix of caramelized malts with hoppiness and alcohol. There was a strong fruity esters component as well. Great example of the style.

Shared with EricTeusink. Thanks dude - straight from Brickstore’s cellar! Aroma is sweet light fruit, candy caramel, and still a bit of citrus hops on the nose. The taste is were an explosion of flavor occur. Even at a year old, I could not believe the amount of hops still in the taste. Really bright citrus American hops shine as a sweet candy caramel sweets swirls with some sweet breads, honey and light fruitiness. Good interesting stuff. Still blown away by the amount of hops in there.

750ml bottle @ Maunula beer tasting 091113. Ordered from Saveur Biere.
Hops and fruits at aroma. Dark red/brown copper colour. First taste was "punch". Much different than I expected on the basis of aroma. Hvedegoop beats this.

Ser ut som jag uppskattade denna bättre än den fatlagrade vilketnär konstigt. Kraftig sötma, kola? Smaken väldigt fyllig. En hel del sötma där också. Välhumlad?
