COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Behold! The fifth collaborative effort of Three Floyds and Mikkeller. This complex ale is just the beverage for canal boat trips in Copenhagen or the brutal Chicago winter. This year’s offering will be brewed in both Europe and in Chicago. Look for both editions and the subtle differences in each. Cheers and thanks for supporting craft beer.

Tmoney99 (11090) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy tropical fruit, sour citrus hop and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy complex bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is was a standout beer.

hotstuff (4275) - Indiana, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Backlog rating on 12-28-2012 (Bomber) This beer has a medium sized off-white mostly lasting head, hazy golden body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, pine, grassy hops, and fruity. The flavor is light bitterness, caramel malt, pine hops, juicy, and a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium-full bodied. Overall, this taste different from other barleywines that I have had in the past. It has a very hoppy aroma and flavor. It is too hoppy tasting for me and is a beer for hop heads.

Idiosynkrasie (4099) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2014
650ml bottle. Bright, slightly cloudy, pale orangey, golden colour with late awakening, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, barely white head. Unusual hoppy aroma, hints of citrus fruit and vegetables, hints of kumquat, gherkin, other vague, apparently more tart than sweet fruit and vegetable notes; later with concentrated bitterness almost biting in the nose. Taste is moderately sweet malty, some bitter almond, some biting bitter hop, cautious fruity hints of mandarine, orange, orange zest; lasting bitter finish with almond and toffee malt basis, alcohol and bitter hop combine for a minimally biting mouthfeel. Relatively light and easy drinkable, (personally) tolerable malt basis, considerable hoppy counterweight. Anyway there’s a dizzy impression of lights going out with finishing the bottle.

skullgeorge (44) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Golden,orangey colour with a great white head that leaves beautiful laces on my glass. Amazing aromas of tropical fruits, pine, honey and apricot. Taste is really complex. Great balance between fruit and hops. Medium body, low carbonation and alcohol well hidden. So many fruits in the start, almost sweet, but in the same time you can feel the hops and the bitterness in the end. Great taste palate so many things to taste. One of the bst beers I’ve ever drunk !

Solid barley wine. Malty and with notes of raisin and other sweet fruits. Doesn’t stand out though.

@zebf 2014 - Golden, honeyed colour. Aroma is very fruity and malty - sweet. Initially it feels quite thick and lucious but it almost evaporates on the tongue. Dry finish with hints of bitter orange syrup.
