hotstuff (5140) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Rated on 5-06-2009 (Bottle) The Appearance when poured is a medium sized fizzy off-white head, transparent amber body, fair amount of lacing, very fizzy, and fast rising carbonation. The Aroma is malty, caramel, grassy, citrus, and earthy hops. The Taste is semi-sweet, moderately bitter, malty, caramel, citrus, earthy hops, and this beer has a dry finish. The Palate is tingly and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer has a very hoppy aroma and worth trying. fugitive (1993) - Athens, GREECE - AUG 30, 2013

Vintage bottle received in trade from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a mostly clear deep golden bordering on amber with about one fingers worth of head that dissipates rather quickly. The aroma is mostly orange and cherries with bits of bread, grains, and brown sugar thrown in there. Hints of earthy hop aroma are still hanging on as is a touch of alcohol. There’s a definite oxidized character setting in, but at this point its more sherry like than anything bad. The flavor is sweet with light and dark sugars, orange marmalade, light pitted fruits, and a hint of earthy hop flavor. Little to no hop bitterness is left. Medium to thick body with a light level of carbonation and a sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel. I had this once before thanks to Mr Barleywine, I wish I had taken some notes then to compare to now. Drinks like an aged barleywine, but a bit on the sweet side. I fear that any more age will obliterate any hops that are left to balance this beer. Yorker (1978) - Herning, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2013
66 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear dark amber with an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is caramel, dried fruit, malt, hops, and booze. Flavour is much like aroma – with a bitter finish. Rasmus40 (20303) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 28, 2013

Pyrmir (5972) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2013
Bottle, together with boogoop and risgoop. Reddish-orange colored, small head. Nose with lots of sweet grain and malty notes and fruity hops. The taste is rich and complex; sweet and exotic fruity with a long, rather smooth hop bitterness in the finish. This was the best of the three goops we tried. olio (10163) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2013

Eindelijk een bier van Three Floyds, gescoord bij De Molen. Bijna dezelfde kleur als icetea met een kleine witte tot offwhite kop. Ruikt sterk naar fruit en rozijnen, gelijk aan een px sherry. De smaak is van overrijp fruit, rozijnen en zoet (caramel). Beperkt koolzuur, had meer in gemogen. Nasmaak is vooral rozijn.
