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.
