4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the bottle with a green-wax 2010 release, pours a deep amber with a nice off-white foamy head, very nice lacing. Smells strongly like a typical barley wine while pouring. Once in the glass, aromas of malts and alcohol, some caramel, rather sweet. Taste is quite complex. Dull at first sip, crescendoing to a sweetness, and mellowing into a bitterly hoppy finish. Notes of caramel malts and alcohol, citrusy hoppy, smooth to start and rough to finish. Clearly, more care is put into brewing this beer than the cover girl puts into her appearance. Thumbs up.
From Mar 2008
I got this in a trade with joe1510. Thanks Joe!
This one pours a clear(from first pour to last) deep amber/copper with about a 1" head of foam.(somewhat vigorous pour)
Lots of nice sticky lacing to be had here.
The smell is nice and powerful with notes of caramel, citrus, and pine. It *smells* balanced for the style.
The taste is, again, nicely balanced with a bold caramel hop character that's offset by equally bold hops, but it's not overpowering in any way. Nice citrus up front, pine shows up about mid palate and shares finishing duty with the malt. Yummy. Not much alcohol apparent other than some slight warming after the swallow. The mouthfeel is medium full and it's pretty lightly carbonated. Wow. I really like this BWSA and it, to me, is *so* easy to drink that I know this bomber isn't going to last as long as it should. Oh well, maybe I can get my hands on some more. ;^) It's one of those brews that hits the spot, if you know what I mean.
The aftertaste is very long lasting...the mix of pine and caramel just keeps on keeping on and that's a great way to end each sip. Another winner from Three Floyds. No doubt about it. pinkzambia (2073) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 13, 2017
Tap @ Bodega: First time ever drinking a Three Floyds on tap! Murky appearance with an off-white head. Musty malts with prominent hops. Wet sourdough with a super bitter hop profile in the flavor. Thick body! phranq (250) - - JUL 29, 2017

Pours a clear copper color. Very thin head that disappeared into nothing. Hoppy and malty at the same time aroma. Caramel, malty, a citrusy hop flavor. Kapsel (418) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 17, 2017

Herbaciane, trochę biszkoptowe, mocno nachmielone, nie podszedł mi jakoś bardzo.

An outstanding barleywine. Very powerful, very boozy, very sweet beer. Nice amount of hops that aren’t completely swallowed up by the malts. Tried with Al, Brian, Brandon, and Josh at Local Option in 2017 after ASEH. Mesjasz (1623) - Lodz, POLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Sampel butelki w Chmielarni. Białe owoce, drewno i wanilia. Smak słodki, lekko cukrowy, owocowe i wanilia jak w aromacie, w tle trochę taniczne. Smaczne. rami_pl (4420) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 29, 2017

Mydlo, ziola, miod, niby jest dobrze ale nie jest, miedzy innymi, bo pachnie mydlem.
Bottle shared with the KL tastiing group. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is toffee caramel malt. The flavour is moderate sweet with a light, metallic hop, light fruit, alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. DialSquare (5130) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2017
Draft at Bob’s Bar: deep nut-brown pour, beige head. aroma of hops, bready, dark fruit. tastes are sugary molasses, but not too sweet overall. caramel, herbal, toasted malts, brown sugar. background boozey. bittersweet finish. creamy palate and easy drinking for such a big brew.
