0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle 401/449. This was about 4th in a series of limited barrel aged beers from floyds. The previous (and subsequent) were all $35 this one was $20. So i should have been suspicious. Poured a golden orange. The aroma is horrible. Really smells like nail polish remover, but stronger and more offensive. The taste was almost as bad. There was a hint of rotten peaches deep in there but covered by the astringent. More like a spirit than a beer. Although better than sipping on vodka. Took 2 days and 8 people to finish. By far the worst beer ive ever consumed.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Fuck you, Adam. Hazed golden pour with a white head. Smells like acetone. Holy paint thinner, Batman. Super intense celery and solvent character. Harsh alcohol and green apple, too. The taste is just awful. Tons of celery, green apple, booze, and paint thinner. This is brutal.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle during RBSG 2014 Post-Grand Tasting Hotel Share. Hazy golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of nail polish, tropical fruit, perfume. Tastes of big nail polish, tropical fruit, citrus. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Pretty awful, I gag just thinking about this beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
750 ml bottle shared by TheAlum at RBSG, at the post-grand tasting bottle share. This one was already being bombed by the time I got to try it. And yeah, it has a big nail polish character. It also has apple, grape, minerals, metal, and sweat. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, dry, chemical mouthfeel. Something went way wrong here. I canít believe a brewer with their reputation would sell it, honestly. Itís gross. Not as bad as a Lithuanian malt liquor disguised as a bock, but still really bad.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Finally, a horrible craft beer from a well liked brewer that people actually rate as if itís horrible! I would give this a twenty in overall impression for this reason alone were it not so absolutely horrendous. It smells in tastes like those Lithuanian novelty beers that seem to be fermented corn syrup. It is sweet and grainy with an apple Jolly Rancher thing taking a prominent roll--only somehow worse than that even. I just canít describe how bad this is. It hurts to drink almost immediately and even thinking about it hurts later. I tried this at RBSG and it is by far the worst beer I had and I tried about twenty different malt liquors.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours very hazy, lots of lace & small head.
Aroma is ridiculous, sherry oxidation, bourbon, booze, acetone. Itís got vanilla, itís offensive.
The flavor is oxidized, bourbony, lightly sour. Goodness.
Lotís of vinegar, wood, whatever.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
750ml bright red wax bottle. Tasted at RBSG grand tasting post-tasting. Hazy amber color. Thin off-white head. Loose lace. Fuck. Everyone was talking about nail polish, and I was like, "come on, give it a fair shake". But shit, nose is straight nail polish, WTF ? After smelling, I am very nervous to sip. Shit. More nail polish in flavor. One of the worst beers Iíve ever had as far as aromatic. Tart taste. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light dry finish. What. The Fuck. If I bought this I would take it back to the brewery and figure out what the hell was going on. Knowing 3F this was probably a $30+ bottle. Reputable brewers are supposed to dump shit like this, not bottle and sell it. I guess there is a sea of suckers for 3F... One of the worst "craft" beers Iíve ever had. Couldnít even finish my 3oz sample
