I will rate this beer...hear ye hear ye. Smell is weak...not bad...but not salient or highly perceivable. Maybe a little hops (citrus...lemons), oxidized malt, and caramel. Appearance...as all appearances are...throw away category...but it does have nice lacing...tight bubbles and a nice clean burnt amber color. Palate should be called mouth-feel, as that is what food scientist call it. Pretty typical for a 3F brew...clean and well carbonated...but with a little oily resin (like a asian snatch waiting to be tamed...citation). Flavor is candy sweet , with a tad bit of feet-y malt...but it adds a nice body. Not what I want from a barley wine...but is is quite refreshing and pleasant. I’d rather drink this than go to another 08 DLD!

Awesome barley wine. Intense caramel in nose and taste, nice hop bomb delivering ripe and overripe fruits, tropical fruits, citrus, some dried fruit aspect, pine. Mostly sweet with moderate bitterness. Very nice

75cl fles via Het Bierhuis, Breda Alcoholpercentage van 10,4% Uitgeschonken in Tripel Karmeliet glas Uiterlijk: donkeroranje met flinke dikke schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: neus is krachtig lekker fruitig, smaak is tropisch fruit, flink bitter, caramel, nootachtig amandel, pijnboom, zoete nasmaak als kandijsuiker Conclusie: voor een barley wine erg veel body, niet alleen zoet maar ook goed bitter. Weer blij met deze Mikkeller. Three Floyds helaas nog niet veel mogen proeven. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Panzerfaust (752) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAR 26, 2016
750ml bottle from Gallagher’s Beer World/El Irlandés. It says brewed and bottled by Mikkeller + Three Floyds at De Proef Brouwerij. BBD: 09-04-2020. Pours a hazy amber color with orange and pink hues and a medium white head that shows remarkably long retention and leaves a gorgeous film. Aroma is well hopped but with a very spread-open malt presence. Fruity notes dominate with orange, tangerines, grapefruit, pommegranate, peach, papaya, raspberry, strawberry marmalade and overripe mango. Grainy hints and molasses come to the fore transitioning into some greener touches of resin and grass. Delightful. Taste is sweet, sticky and punchy with alcohol. Massive intensity, the 750ml are too much for a single person. Maybe too much for two. Sugary flavors, especially candy sugar, dominate the fruitiness even though the brewers attempted to give more room to the hops adding large amounts of them. Serious sweetness. Big body, full mouthfeel. Smooth texture, low to mid carbonation. Long finish and really sticky aftertaste. Intense and powerful Barley Wine... but overly sweet. You’ll love it if you drink just one little 50ml sample, but if you drink the equivalent to a normal bottle (330ml or 12 fl.oz.) the sweetness will be too much. The score reflects that since a 50ml sample would have gotten about a 4. A larger sample deserves around a 3 or 3.1. Now give me a well made Czech Pilsner.
