Oh Yes! On tap at Cardinal in Stavangar. Wonderful mouthfeel with rich tones of caramel, dried fruits and hops. A great barleywine. Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - APR 27, 2012
Geruch zitrushopfig, angenehm schwer harzig (Jubel!). Startet süßlich-ölig. Mitte stark hopfenölig, aromatisch, Grapefruitbitter und schon etwas alkoholisch. Abgang süß bittermalzig-trocken, alkoholisch, Pflaume. Prickelnd abgehend.
Außergewöhnliches Bier. Spitze! cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2012
750 ml bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a hazy amber color with a medium size light tan head. Nice lacing. Flavor is fruit, toasted malt, and floral hops. Aroma is much of the same. Medium body. Alcohol is noticeable, but not overbearing. A good beer. sir__v (2629) - FRANCE - APR 25, 2012
A nice collaboration between Mikeller and 3 Floyds. We have a nice beer, with a great colour : brown and bronze, a heavy medium head. Smell : hops, hops and hops. Taste : hops and caramel aftertaste : hops with a dry impression.

Bottle. Copper with a large pale beige head that lasts well. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, vanilla caramels, rawish alcohol. Only slightly syrupy, with gentle carbonation. Rich caramel and some bread, hints of stone fruit - not terribly deep, but a long way short of cloying - citrus, pine and some spices. Bitterness is biggish but not harsh and emerges gradually and lingers along with some salt. After a while the alcohol (which is fairly well hidden in the mouth) emerges again in an unintegrated way. Buckwheat is there, I guess, but I wouldn’t have picked it. The lack of a deep toffee bass note in the malts makes it fairly easy-going but not very involving. tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - APR 24, 2012
Bomber tnx to rlgk. Celebrating having Jocke om 10 months in Thailand. Pours clear copper amber with a huge fluffy top creamy beige head leaving a ton of lace. Aroma is intense malty, sweet caramel, hoppy piny and grapefruit, resiny, fruity and bready. Flavor is fullbodied sweet and piny in front with good maltyness growing stronger towards the middle with fruits, more bitterness, piny and grassy tones. Bitterness sustains all the way to the end together with sweetness and grapefruits with heavy bready/malty body as a base. Fantastic good.... umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 24, 2012
Dark ruby red beer, cloudy, huge amount of head that sticks around. Very nice. Very floral hoppy aroma. A little fruitiness and malt too. Smells delicious. Floral hoppiness up front, then strong bitterness. Taste is very good. Getting some fruit, some spiciness, earthiness, all backed up by some nice malt. A slightly soapy dry finish is the only flaw to me. Glad I bought a few of these. Very good. SSSteve (4006) - - APR 22, 2012

Bottle shared by someone at a tasting. Pours amber with an off white head. Nice bright hoppy aroma, with piney notes and a wheaty base. The flavor has piney hops, light sweetness, and an odd but pleasant wheaty base that must be the buckwheat. Good stuff.
