Not a totally fair review as this was one of the infected bottles released this year. For the record FFF made good with a gift card at the kiosk for the cost of the bottle.

Well, was worried it might be infected with all the posts about it being so. My bottle seemed fine. Maybe a hint of sourness, but I might have been picking up on that due to thinking it would be there. The beer itself is only ok. Sweet smooth taste. Some bourbon notes. Totally not worth $35 a bottle. This beer should easily only cost $10. Yes it was good, but not that good.

Slight green apple taste, no barrel notes. Maybe I should have drank it fresh

Smells of green apples and a touch of nail polish. Body is thin, prickly. No bourbon notes, no lactose creaminess. Infected.

2014 bottle.

I can not say that it was infected; however, that is about the most glowing praise I can give this beer. The body was thin. The taste was sweet, with a strange flavor I could not pin down. Perhaps my expectations of what a Barrel Aged Beer from Three Floyds should be were set too high. Unfortunately, it was the most expensive bottle of beer I purchased this year. I should have bought a case of Zombie Dust instead.

Poured into a pint glass. This was not infected.

A: Medium brown with a tan one finger head that lingered. Thick lacing. Pretty.

S: Oak-y, bourbon-y with hints of vanilla. Some lactose in the background.

T: Slides down easy with robust, sweet and smokey traits. The bourbon barrels really give it a different feel from regular Moloko. Bourbon notes dominate, but in a very relaxed way, not overpowering. Cherries slide in with vanilla and oak. Getting a bit of semi-sweet chocolate in the mix, too. So sultry and decadent.

M: Light to medium with medium carbonation.

O: Like drinking a bourbon and lactose. A smooth milkshake. Glad to have walked in on this superior tasting.

Flavor was def off and appears to have signs of tart infection. Not horrible, but not the way the style should taste especially at a $35 price tag.

Big waste of money. Infected. Apparently someone needs to go back to basics before releasing garbage like this.
