RATINGS: 1191   WEIGHTED AVG: 4.07/5   SEASONAL: Winter   EST. CALORIES: 360   ABV: 12%
Huge sweet body, big flavors and high alcohol levels, this beer is best enjoyed by a raging fire. Complex caramel sweetness is well balanced by generous hopping, delivering an intense, smooth drinking experience. Intense fruity caramel malts, citrus hops, and alcohol notes waft up to tickle your senses.

DrnkMcDermott's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 Now that I’ve had the 2001 Behemoth that the Floyds "found" in the cooler and put on tap at the brewpub, I can discount my description below (and save my bottle of 2005 to age for a while). The draft pour is a deep cloudy brown, with a thin barleywine head. Bigass malts prevail in this one, with a bit of taffy apple-caramel sweetness. Alcohol is not heady or overpowering… at first, but sneaks up big time toward the end. There’s a touch brandy, with a swirl of strawberry, prune and cherry. Very thick and chewy.

Bottled off kegging line by 3F’s employee. My rating is tempered by the fact that the sample was bottled 4 years ago and not counter-pressure filled. But I expect to have some fresher stuff when the bottles finally come out this summer. This sample was slightly cloudy. Not as hoppy as most 3F’s, just the remains of a fine hop bouquet. This is, yes, slightly oxidized, but also sweet and somewhat fruity, with a hint of raspberry.

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!

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.

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.

Sampel butelki w Chmielarni. Białe owoce, drewno i wanilia. Smak słodki, lekko cukrowy, owocowe i wanilia jak w aromacie, w tle trochę taniczne. Smaczne.

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 (5123) - 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.
