750ml bottle. Not the one brewed in suburban Chi-town, but rather the Mikkeller-side one made outside of Gent, Belgium at De Proef. A ricewine, technically, from the sounds of it. Does 'goop' mean the same thing colloquially in Danish as it does in English?

This beer pours a hazy medium golden, slightly brassy amber hue, with three fingers of densely foamy, tightly packed, bubbly beige head, which leaves an array of eroded sea column lace around the glass as it slowly abates.

It smells quite prominently of a bitter grapefruit rind and orange peel fruitiness, pine resin, a soft earthy funkiness, hints of rice pudding, but mostly still a solid caramelized barley malt, and an herbal, sort of floral booziness. The taste is more bitter citrus and pine hops, keeping this steadily in American 'barley' wine territory, with a gritty otherly graininess, the rice showing what it can do when rendered in a perceptible dose, but as a guest - the caramel, somewhat toffee-like malt still large and in charge. A persistent, pithy funk hangs about, along with further herbal, almost weedy hops. You can't so much taste the booze, as feel it closing in from all sides.

The carbonation is generally rather soft and innocuous, but not below performing its basic duties, the body a decent medium-heavy weight, but with a strange airiness that I find hard to reconcile, yet which doesn't really interfere with the workaday smoothness. It finishes on the sweet side, the rice pudding and caramel malt kind of nudging each other, while the hops mostly switch over to the fruity, instead of bitter, side of their duality.

An interesting experiment - take rice, that maybe unfairly reviled beer ingredient in craft brewing circles, and make a Yankee-style barleywine with it. Call it something cartoonish, add a corresponding label to a larger-format bottle, and let 'er loose. Yup, it's Mikkeller, all right, and this mostly succeeds, with hops, grain, and booze aplenty. Plenty enough that I can't stress sharing this offering any more.

Pours amber with a small head.
Nose shows heavy malt with a fair bit of piny, resinous hops too. Very syrupy-smelling. Also some booze.
Pretty similar flavours. Some sake notes amidst rich sweet malt and piny hops. A little harsh.
Could use more carbonation.

750ml bottle. Bourgogne Wine glass. Cute & orangish color & cloudy appearance. Yellowish off-white creamy foam forms a thick, sticky & lasting crown as well as draws lacing rings on sides. Superb aroma profile: hints of orange, toffee, crystal malt, ripe plum, ripe apricot, herbal hues –caraway- & subtle resinous back. Fruity, malty & creamy upfront. Citric bitterness –orange & tangerine juice notes- follows. Full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous texture & dried palate. Slight resinous & grapefruit flavors in the middle. Sweet/slight bitter finish. Ripe fruit & resins on the aftertaste. ABV is shown as a kind, delicious sugary & warm sensation. A BIG ONE!!

A: Orange brown and moderately cloudy with no carbonation and not a full finger of yellowish head. Random lacing almost like Thai writing, or Hebrew.



S: Boozy, crème brulee, sweet, stinky foot, aged cheese much like the rind of Brie, a light floral essence.



T: Buttery, crème brulee, toffee, light sweetness, little alcohol, a burnt bitter quality on the finish which may be the hops and toasted malts, or both. The brie rind like taste comes through as well.



M: Medium, syrupy body with foamy carbonation. This leaves a light feel to heavy beer.



O: Got this on Wishbeer in Bangkok, drank in Kunming March 29th, 2015. Great feel to it for a barley wine, and the flavours meld together very well. Hugely expensive, but really hard to find anything by 3 Floyds outside of the Chicago area, let alone in ASIA, which was a huge blessing.
