I got this in a trade with joe1510. Thanks Joe!
This pours a clear amber with a very small head of foam that leaves the scene rather quickly.
The smell...yeah...lots of dark fruit, caramel malt, bubble gum, clove, banana, and alcohol.
The taste on first sip and man, I'm getting a lot of candy sugar along with notes of banana, clove, apple, dark fruit, caramel, some yeast, and some alcohol. Very warming but no surprise there but this will do me for the night, me thinks. ;^)
The mouthfeel is medium though at times, it seems to border on syrupy, the carbonation is light, and it finishes with a slight tartness that lingers on through the aftertaste. Wow.
I love how the sweet part of this brew mixes so well with the tartness from the apple and dark fruit. To me, this one definitely taste like a Belgian and my hat's off to Three Floyd's. Very very nice brew! Dfonorow (2318) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2017
On tap at DLD. Pour is deep amber with an off-white head. Notes of spice, ginger, dried fruit, candi sugar, and caramel. Finish is similar with a lot of booze. phranq (250) - - JUL 27, 2017
Old bottle. Nose is complex malt and sugar. Taste is much the same. Sweet boozy and finish. Would love to try fresh. mrohia (283) - Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2017
Side Street Tavern, Tinley Park, IL, draft. Malty, especially the lingering finish Creamy head. Pretty much aroma-free. Soft mouth feel. cobaink2 (839) - seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Bottle from brewery. Really extreamly complex. Maybe the most colplex beer I’ve had. On first sip it’s quite a bit of a freight train. Lots of murky hops and bready malts. Almost a barleywine in character.

Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of sweet vanilla, sugar, some white fruits, hints of biscuit and bread, touch of booze. Taste was a mix of sugar, vanilla, fruit into some bread, dough, slight yeast and spice, finishing sweet. Slipstream (2719) - USA - JAN 22, 2017
Thanks to Adrian for opening up this classic, from around 2005 or so! It tastes like a barley wine to me - some brandy and cola, vanilla bean. Rich and tasty. The long cellaring period didn’t hurt it any. dmac (6574) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Bomber from Ed the Head, because he you know....poured a deep amber with a foamy white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus fruits, alcohol, syrup,slight nail polish remover. Flavor of fruit rind, booze, fruit juice, breads, tropical fruits. Big boozy body, decent heat. Ed5388 (3488) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2016
22oz bomber thanks to sheepdog! Pours a hazy orange caramel color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet citrus, and Belgian spices. Taste of grain, sweet fruit, Belgian spices, yeast, grass, older citrus, and booziness.
