4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at the source recently, Feb. 2013. Pours a cloudy orangish brown with a nice white head that dissipates quickly. Leaves lots of lacing. Slight, Three Floyd's signature hop (onion) aroma. Pallet is thick and hearty. Taste is sweet , but not too sweet, sugary malt and hops. I love thick, slightly sweet beers and this one is excellent. First barley wine I have had. Liking the style after drinking this one. Will certainly buy again. A real treat......

Bottle. Hazy deep amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of pine, toffee, coconut, light caramel, toast, light citrus and light portish oxidisation. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with notes of resin, toffee and light oxidisation. Full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Great stuff.

Hoppy hoppy stuff. Really hoppy for a BW. Hop aroma. Spicy hops. Sweet candy taste. One of the best barleys.

Mastery of the style rich heavy bitter barley wine almost like a triple IPA but even more intense

Big sweet malt aroma with notes of pine, fruit and orange. Flavor is initially very sweet with a big malt character that finishes with a dry bitterness and a dark fruit note. Mouthfeel is full carbonation is average. Overall a delicious beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 [2013 vintage]Massive beer! S: Huge fresh, pungent, resinous hop presence - big resinous pine, orange peel and mango fruits. Through the overwhelming hops there are lots of rich, sweet caramel malts. A: Pours a dirty blonde and sits a dirty, clear ruby with a sticky creamy beige cream head. T: Incredibly sweet hops and malt - big citrus fruits and caramel. Itâ€™s on the verge of being cloyingly sweet but balanced by a notable tartness. P: Full and sticky, and lingers like no other. Mouth feels coated in wax. O: Absolutely fantastic. A huge beer with tons to offer. Have another sitting in the cellar, cannot wait to see how it ages! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPone

Poured into snifter at brew pub. Smell of sweet malt, caramel, toffee and slight hints of vanilla. Pours a deep, cloudy reddish/brown. Beers coats the tongue with flavors similar to the smell but also with a bit of raisin/plum. Also has some sweet booziness at the tail end. One of the best barley wines for sure.
