750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep hazy copper. Big khaki head. Good retention. Some lacing.

Smell - Grapefruit hops. A little bit of hops. Caramel. Some slight rye. Decent, but a little one dimensional.

Taste - Hops are quite strong. Sweet. Caramel. Oxidation too. Rye more prominent. Bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Overly hopped. Medium body.

Overall - Getting old. Still aggressively hopped.

bomber poured into a snifter

A-- Poured a hazy, darker orange amber color. Nice visible carbonation and for it's age a nice 2 finger off white head that left nice soapy lacing. Not what I expected for a barleywine or compared to the first two in the series.

S-- Hops are still quite lively. Good fruit nose of Orange and grapefruit with some pine notes. Followed by the carmel backbone. Just bits of rye spices. Follows more of a DIPA ish nose really.

T-- Still quite hoppy. has held up well. Got the backbone of toasted carmel and then orange, pine and grapefruit. Just slightly grainy fruit flavors and touches of rye spice. Did fall apart after it warmed though. Lots of lemon scented pledge. Not entirely bad but overpowering lemon.

M-- Oily and full bodied. Still quite carbonated and lively. Earthy and spicy feel and dry finish.

O-- Not bad but got hard to finish as just became a lemon bomb and lost the Carmel and other fruits. First half of the beer was very nice though.

A - Pors a clear red-tinged burnt orange with two fingers of tan head. head has very nice retention and leaves a ton of lacing.

S - Big aromas of toffee and caramel, with some spicy rye and citrus.

T - Taste is a nice melding of caramel malt, rye spice, citrus hops and some bread malt. The hops add a nice bitterness, but do not dominate. Has a very smooth blend of malt, spice and bitterness. Initial sweetness fades and turns bitter on the finish, which is dry and pretty clean. I didn't try this fresh, so I don't know how aggressive the hopping was originally, but I think it is spot on at this point.

M - Medium/full mouthfeel is sticky sweet to begin with before turning dry spicy and bitter.

O - A very enjoyable barleywine that had no noticeable alcohol in the aroma or the taste. Taste was actually somewhat subtle for a barleywine, but I think it works well.

big thanks to BlessedBeBeer for hitting yet another want of mine! Gary, you rule! enjoyed out of an urthel oversized tulip.

a - poured a murky yellow that settled in the glass as a stunning orange. massive off-white creamy belgian style head that hung out for a while. as it faded, it left chunky creamy lacing all over the glass.

s - very nice caramel malt. smells a lot like a year old bigfoot. toffee is HUGE. the rye seems to have held up and are mixed perfectly.

t - vanilla and toffee malts. there is no mistake that this is an american barleywine, but the hops have certainly faded. nice splash of tropical fruit with the malt. tastes really excellent. rye works well and tastes dialed back.

m - smooth and easy drinker. carbonation held up just fine...medium bodied which is suprisingly thin for the flavoring. i'd expect it to be syrupy with such a bold flavor.

o - overall, what an excellent surprise to get to try this beer. i'm a big fan of both three floyds and mikkeller...and rye beers!!! never had it fresh, but it is nice and subtle now.
