COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Huge sweet body, big flavors and high alcohol levels, this beer is best enjoyed by a raging fire. Complex caramel sweetness is well balanced by generous hopping, delivering an intense, smooth drinking experience. Intense fruity caramel malts, citrus hops, and alcohol notes waft up to tickle your senses.

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...... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle into Teku glass. Aroma is typical of a 3F brew, lots of hops. At first I wasnít expecting much because Iím not really that into the 3F use of hops in non-IPA styles anymore (Did not love Alpha Klaus or Blot out the Sun), but from the first sip I knew this was good. The hops are present, especially their bitterness, but theyíre well balanced by the massive malt backbone. Sweet, citrusy, and caramel, all at once. a very nice complexity that kept the beer from just coming across as a DIPA. Thinner body than I expected, but it worked well. ABV not even noticeable. Would love to try this with 2-3 years on it.

Had on tap at 3 Floyds. Fairly sweet flavors of hop, citrus, and malt. Decent but too sweet for me - just not my style.

cards04 (2012) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
This borderlines on double IPA for me because of its intense bitter hop flavor. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. Nice sweet caramel and big hop aromas. Flavors are smooth sweet caramel followed by a hop explosion. Awesome stuff. No alcohol detected at all.

Pours with a decent head. Smells great, tastes great. Extremely well balanced, nothing overwhelming the other. Tastes of hops, citrus, mild alcohol taste, slightly bitter finish. A really great beer. Had from a bottle.

Plovmand (6678) - Helsinge, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle. Yellow wax. Shared with Hallinghansen. It pours hazy deep Amber with a medium off white head. Loads of sweet cracker like malt and hops with dried fruity notes. The flavor is really malty with rich nutty and caramel notes. Ripe dried fruits and sweet biscuits. I find a mysterious off notes I canít describe but heíll itís 8 years old. Still going strong!!
