650ml bottle (white wax) @Brasserie 4:20. Pours copper with a little head. Aroma of malt, caramel, toffee, orange peel, raisins, herbs, oxidation. Flavour is malty, medium sweet with a distinctive bitterness, a bit too "short" in the mouth, not so rounded. Medium body, a bit watery, soft carbonation. Not aged well. ciocanelu (2795) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 3, 2016
Amber color with beige head. Aroma is really hoppy for a barleywine, earthy and resiny. Taste starts slightly malty but overall it’s really hoppy. Really fresh tasting barleywine.

Aromas of sweet malts, toasted sugars, melted caramel, sugar covered plums, tangerines, dates, toffee, deep amber malts, barley, wheat and intense pines and resin. Pours a darker copper with a apricot tint and thin foam and lace. Taste brings intense sweetness, sugars, deep fruits and crisp caramel upfront. Hops are immediately present afterwards with heavy bitterness, pines, resins, oils and tangerine notes. Finishes dry and hoppy with a noticeable booziness, Overall, very impressive. Well balanced between heavy barley wine malts and american style hops. A+ rating. markducommun (1201) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2016

Bottle. 2016 black glitter wax vintage. Pours brown with a white head. Huge hop presence on the nose with caramel, toffee and a touch of maple. Sweet hoppy flavor with a great mouthfeel. Yeah it’s hoppy for a barleywine but what do you expect from 3 floyds? No hops? Pfft, come on now. Fantastic brew.
