This is a Yellow Wax bottle, making it 4 years, 3 months old at time of drinking.
A-Pours a hazy dark copper color with a quickly disapating finger of head. some lacing.
S&T-sweet caramel, floral, apricot mango and dark fruits, The citrus and piney hops have faded to but a gentle whisper that melds everything together. unbelieveable. Light kiss of alcohol...and this is 12.5%.
M- Insanely smooth, creamy and buttery palate wrapping sensation.
D- it only saddens me to think i can't regularly consume 2 bombers of this often. I think i could. at 12.5...i just can't believe it.
I haven't had this beer fresh yet,now i need to so i have a compareson for this aged one. I'm so glad i have another Yellow Seal in the Cellar! I can't speak for this beer fresh, but go buy some and forget about them for a while.

I'm just not getting this as a Barley wine. I smell the signature Three Floyds hops, but it isn't as sweet as a BW usually is. The nose is nice for a big, hoppy non-BW. Confusing.
The taste is, once again, bit fat hoppiness typical of the brewery- sharp and tangy. I'm STILL not getting this as a BW. A bit too thin, though the mouthfell is fine, for anything other than a BW. I get the malts, but can't pin down any caramel notes on this.
If you're looking for a sweet, thick BW- go elsewhere. If you're looking to sample thru the Three Floyds taste catalogue this one is a tick worth trying. Once.
I'd say this would be a good candidate to age or have as a barrel aged brew. As it is, it is a hop bomber that hits just a bit strong for the style.
