On tap at 3F. Pours hazy dark amber with small off-white head. Aromas of sweet malts, dark fruits, caramel, and booze. Flavor of candied sugar, sweet malts, caramel, some booze, and strong licorice flavor. Mouthfeel is a little syrupy.

deyholla (6608) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 15, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear amber with a light tan head that dissipated to the edges and left a slight lace. Aroma had a decent amount of sweet grain with caramel and a hint of backing toffee. Flavor began with sweet grain and caramel with a bit of grassy hop coming out in the finish.

Exceptional. Enjoyed in a snif-tah at the brew pub in Munster. Goes great with $3 chorizo tacos. Nice mild brown color, surprisingly easy on the palate. Excellent as is all things 3F.

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2010
On tap at the brewpub in Munster. This one had a pour of thick, pillow head that retained only a sticky lacing on the sides. The bright shiny copper body is quite pretty. A subtle and hazy aroma, though still nice. Mixed grasses and toffee bread grains, along with mild caramel candy powder. The palate is an interesting combination of liquor and tea, which hides the abv very well. Lots of layers here too, with many subtleties that make for a very drinkable experience. Starts off with toffee and lemon sweet tea, then becomes more herbal and grassy as far as hops go. Cookie malts come through toward the end along with mild citrus fruits for a well balanced finish. Like most of 3fs barley wines, this was different, interesting, and quite enjoyable.

draft at brewery, pours hazy amber with white head. a very sweet candy sugar, cranberry and raisins with pinnapple in there too. flavors are candy sugar, booze soaked cherries, pinnapple, harsh piney and booze making it hard to swallow, syurpy body. i wouldn’t mind about 5oz of this during the winter months, perhaps this in a barrel or just aging it longer could be better too.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2010 On tap at FFF; pours a dark copper, with modest white head that sits faintly along the edges. nice english hop aroma - with a hint of sweetness, like caramel. At first, i believed that the english hops were the downfall of this brew - and honestly i think it holds it back a bit, but after a duration it did grow on me. The brew has an earthy element to it. Hops hit you up front, but it meshes with the maltiness - thick, almost sticky mouthfeel - it is a fairly smooth brew for the abv, i give it that. Not bad - but nothing special, whatsoever.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Draft at the brewpub, split with a buddy. Pours a cloudy amber color with a tiny white head. Aroma is very fruit-forward, with notes of apples, raisins, cherries, sweet caramel malts, and plenty of brandy-like booze; there was something lactic throwing me off in the nose, though. It drops out of the flavor, fortunately, and booze leads, with caramel malts, wood, earthy hops, and sugar. Lingering bitterness and alcohol. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a boozy mouthfeel. Big and warming.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2010
clear brass, slight off white head, some lace. nose is very mild sweet malt, perhaps some breadiness. the nose is pretty mild. flavor is malty, leathery and musty, with some sweet notes. medium bodied, sweet finish. alcohol is well hidden (not necessarily a plus in my book), but not as flavorful as many barley wines i’ve had in the past. still, well worth the try. sampled on tap at three floyds brewpub.

GranvilleTim (1467) - Granville, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Light orange-brown pour with a white head. Aroma of caramal, bread, light hops. Taste was like the aroma, nice balance, a little bitter aftertaste. The alcohol came out at the end of the drink.

LCBS 2010. Orangish pour. All grapefruit peel here with some brown sugar/caramel malt peeking out. Flavor is hoppy up front, sweet malt middle and back to the citrus hops on the finish. Nice stuff.
