4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium honey copper with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that diminished slowly down to a large puddle and collar of foam which allowed for some excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a caramel malt, pine hops and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit), dark fruit (cherries) and a slight alcohol tinge.
The taste was sweetly bitter with hints of caramel and dark fruit early on and then progressed into a more pronounced bitterness and mildly acidic with a strong hoppy citrus note and a decent alcohol finish. The flavor hung around for a very long time with a nice hoppy alcohol warming sensation left behind.
Mouthfeel was just below medium in body with an extremely dry texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall an exquisitely well balanced Barleywine with a nice fruity alcohol presence and a big dose of hops...
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 (1005) - 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 (6710) - 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 (3175) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2017

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.

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. pinkzambia (2111) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 13, 2017
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! phranq (250) - - JUL 29, 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. Kapsel (418) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 17, 2017

Herbaciane, trochę biszkoptowe, mocno nachmielone, nie podszedł mi jakoś bardzo.
