Behold! The fifth collaborative effort of Three Floyds and Mikkeller. This complex ale is just the beverage for canal boat trips in Copenhagen or the brutal Chicago winter. This years offering will be brewed in both Europe and in Chicago. Look for both editions and the subtle differences in each. Cheers and thanks for supporting craft beer.

wedgie9 (2701) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Tasted on 12/1/12 from a capped 22oz bottle. Pours clear yellow orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is bitter with some yeast funk and plenty of hops and bread malt. The flavor plenty of hop bitterness, yeasty funk, along with sweet caramel and bread malt. The body is full and syrupy with lively carbonation and a long bitter hops and bread malt finish.

hotstuff (5113) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Backlog rating on 12-28-2012 (Bomber) This beer has a medium sized off-white mostly lasting head, hazy golden body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, pine, grassy hops, and fruity. The flavor is light bitterness, caramel malt, pine hops, juicy, and a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium-full bodied. Overall, this taste different from other barleywines that I have had in the past. It has a very hoppy aroma and flavor. It is too hoppy tasting for me and is a beer for hop heads.

Idiosynkrasie (7318) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2014
650ml bottle. Bright, slightly cloudy, pale orangey, golden colour with late awakening, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, barely white head. Unusual hoppy aroma, hints of citrus fruit and vegetables, hints of kumquat, gherkin, other vague, apparently more tart than sweet fruit and vegetable notes; later with concentrated bitterness almost biting in the nose. Taste is moderately sweet malty, some bitter almond, some biting bitter hop, cautious fruity hints of mandarine, orange, orange zest; lasting bitter finish with almond and toffee malt basis, alcohol and bitter hop combine for a minimally biting mouthfeel. Relatively light and easy drinkable, (personally) tolerable malt basis, considerable hoppy counterweight. Anyway theres a dizzy impression of lights going out with finishing the bottle.

Bottle at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Golden,orangey colour with a great white head that leaves beautiful laces on my glass. Amazing aromas of tropical fruits, pine, honey and apricot. Taste is really complex. Great balance between fruit and hops. Medium body, low carbonation and alcohol well hidden. So many fruits in the start, almost sweet, but in the same time you can feel the hops and the bitterness in the end. Great taste palate so many things to taste. One of the bst beers Ive ever drunk !

MarcoDL (4702) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2015 Solid barley wine. Malty and with notes of raisin and other sweet fruits. Nicely dry, bitter and fresh, instead of overly sweet.

@zebf 2014 - Golden, honeyed colour. Aroma is very fruity and malty - sweet. Initially it feels quite thick and lucious but it almost evaporates on the tongue. Dry finish with hints of bitter orange syrup.
