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.

olsvammel (7358) - Örebro, - SEP 26, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2010 It poured a hazy copper golden liquid with a small white foam. It had a strong smell of grassy hops and flowers. The smell was thick and intense with some warm alcohol to build it up. It had a thick and heavy taste of caramell, hops and malt. High bitterness, very nice, a great beer!

While in Chicago. Nose is very very boozy. Medium lasting head. Taste is Carmel sweet with balanced hop. Hop doesn't add flavor just the correct bitterness. Perfectly executed. Intense sweet full body mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at brewery. Deep orange color with a thin white head. Orange oils, wheat, booze, resiny hops, dried cherries and light pine aromas. Medium sweetness cut by strong citrusey bitter taste. Heavier body with an oily feel.

Svartvit (1040) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2017
Bottle shared at Kermis birthday tasting. Pours a slightly hazy copper amber with a white head. Triple IPA like. Very bitter, very sweet. Malty caramel, piney hops, slightly herbal.

Maakun (7100) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2017
Bottle shared at kermis' birthday. Bit hazy orange golden with off white head. Vanilla, sweet malts, caramel, sweet citrus hops, bitter herbs, alcohol, cardboard. Quite sweet and bitter. Full bodied. Yeah not my kind of beer but not bad.

mariuspoenari (3211) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2017
Sampled at Chris' birthday share. Hazy amber pour with a thin beige head. Tons of hops in this beer, grapefruit, pine resin, caramel, aspirin. Extremely hoppy, super delicious.

From bottle at kermis’s b-day tasting at Kwartje. Clear amber with offwhite head. Big sweet orange peel, tea, biscuits, hops, malts. Big sweet and juicy. Like a tripple ipa with some age on it. Big sweet malty hoppy stuff.

Bitterbill (2078) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 8, 2017
From Mar 2008 I got this in a trade with joe1510. Thanks Joe! This one pours a clear(from first pour to last) deep amber/copper with about a 1" head of foam.(somewhat vigorous pour) Lots of nice sticky lacing to be had here. The smell is nice and powerful with notes of caramel, citrus, and pine. It *smells* balanced for the style. The taste is, again, nicely balanced with a bold caramel hop character that's offset by equally bold hops, but it's not overpowering in any way. Nice citrus up front, pine shows up about mid palate and shares finishing duty with the malt. Yummy. Not much alcohol apparent other than some slight warming after the swallow. The mouthfeel is medium full and it's pretty lightly carbonated. Wow. I really like this BWSA and it, to me, is *so* easy to drink that I know this bomber isn't going to last as long as it should. Oh well, maybe I can get my hands on some more. ;^) It's one of those brews that hits the spot, if you know what I mean. The aftertaste is very long lasting...the mix of pine and caramel just keeps on keeping on and that's a great way to end each sip. Another winner from Three Floyds. No doubt about it.

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!

2015. Nose is sweet bread and grape. Taste is sweet and ballanced. Finishes slohhtly boozy. Would love to try fresh.

screigh (781) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 22, 2017
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.
