Cloudy brown beer. Good cream coloured head. Tangy oak and vanilla nose. Semi soft palate, very moderate carbonation. Tangy malt, smooth oaky flavour more bourbon than red wine. Mild vanilla. Dry finish with mild spicy alcohol. Typically sumptuous Three Floyds beer. This is just a little tangy to hit the highest echelons.

The pour is a murky amber color with a small off-white head. An interesting combination of aromas. I get grapefruit, vinegar, and lots of butter. There’s a bit of a solvent/chemical type smell to it as well. The flavor is a touch watery, which I suppose is a good thing, but the bad things about the aroma (butter, vinegar, solvent) are also there. A touch of fruit such as apple and citrus. A bit thin in body with medium carbonation.

Tmoney99 (10665) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle shared byalexsdad06. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy tannic fruit, malt and small woody alcohol aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy complex sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is was a solid beer.

Bottle (#161)… CCB’s Hunahpu’s Day 2012... Cloudy caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. The bouquet furnishes caramel, oak, vanilla and coconut. Medium-bodied and watery with soft carbonation. The flavor presents caramel, vanilla, coconut and light acidity. Caramely, thin, oaken finish. I enjoyed the unadulterated base beer more, but appreciate the opportunity to try this rarity. Bottle courtesy of 50belair!

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Amber pour. Arom of red wine, some acedic notes, light cherry note, some very light sweet malt notes. Flavor is tart, vinous, brown sugar. Not sure the barrels helped this out too much to be honest.

Sammy (8636) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2012
Cuvee aroma, with sharp unadulterated vinegar. More of a bourbon taste, with cocolnut and vanilla, wood and vinegar taste. A sipper, and a worthy rare beer. Murky body. Thanks Dave.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle 383/386 thanks to GRG1313. Pours with a hazed amber hued body with a fluffy tan head. Aromas are of nail polish, acetone, slightly sour, pear, wood, splinters and a ton of acetaldehyde. Flavors are lightly sour, oak, vanillin, nearly bourbon like, vinous, red wine, peach skins and nougat. Medium bubbles. Messy.

It has notes of cleaning chemicals. Really a poorly-aged beer that just doesn’t work.

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2014
750mL bottle, #328/386. Poured hazy medium orange with a short, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up slightly sour wine, oak, and fruity notes over chewy caramel, dark fruits, and molasses.. came across very strong, but with good stuff. The flavor found mostly vinous notes, rye, and licorice at the core, with oaky notes, barrel sourness + warmth around.. finished with a lot of barrel flavor/strength and grainy rye malt. Heavier-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. solid overall, but it only sorta worked as I think they intended.

750 ml bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks a lot, Blake! Bottle 370/386. Pours a hazed amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of resin, oak, mixed fruits, caramel, coconut, and earth. Flavor of vanilla, caramel, dried fruits, oak, and resin. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, gritty mouthfeel. Interesting barley wine. I liked it more than I thought I would.
