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 wouldnt have picked it. The lack of a deep toffee bass note in the malts makes it fairly easy-going but not very involving.

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....

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.

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.

750ml bottle that poured an opaque golden orange color, aromas of citrus, spice, resin, and some booze. Flavors are a cornucopia of fruits, syrup, and bozzy aftertaste. Interesting collaboration, glad I got to try it.

Bottle. Poured a hazy, reddish, amber, with a fluffy off-white head. Smell is very floral, hints of pine sap, grass, caramel, and rice. Taste is very smooth and well-balanced. Tastes of caramel, slight alcohol, hops, and a moderately bitter finish. Alcohol is hidden dangerously and this barley wine is highly drinkable. Very delicious.

On tap at Archive, Brisbane. Great, malty, and very well balanced. Aromas of caramel, cherries, grain, grass, with hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet, with bitter and sour notes, and very long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Amber, cloudy, with a frothy head

Purchased at In Fine Spirits in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a Saturday night during a time that I have to work, which is kind of a bummer, but less so due to this brew. Appearance a very cloudy, slightly thick, dark golden amber with a rich frothy white head that laces to the glass. Aroma of spices, definite citrus, theres a unique quality that I can attribute to fruity that is interesting. It smells pretty good. Taste is pretty bitter, huge grapefruit notes, pine, citrus, you can tell its a high ABV brew, and it is good but not very very good. Happy to have enjoyed.
