As stated above, this really should be listed as a Mikkeller beer, not Three Floyds, as it was brewed on Mikkeller's side of the ocean. Regardless, what lover of great beer could resist a collaboration between these two beer artists? Aging my ass, this is getting opened NOW.

The opaque, clouded-over rust color is nice, and the superbly creamy, firm dirty-white head is even nicer, leaving splashes and splats of lace all over the glass.

This is one of those aromas that leaps out of the glass and flies straight into the nostrils from several feet away. Enormously flowery/green/pungent/piney/citrusy hops lead the way, all big and bright, with a malty lower level that reminds of rye, spicy and super-earthy as it is.

Holy cow, this beer has it all going on. Initially there's a slight shock of prickly spices (cinnamon comes to mind/tongue), again reminding of rye, but clearly it's buckwheat (as printed on the label). While the hops scream Double IPA, there's a malty character here that strikes a sweet, vanilla-kissed balance between the barleywine and wheatwine poles. Hops are hugely herbal and resiny/piny, not as much citrus/fruit as suggested in the aroma. Caramel tones, burnt toffee-like tones, charred red apple skin, and that "je ne sais quoi" of the best "American Strong Ales" that puts in on a level with the almighty Double Bastard. And about that 10.4%, it's excellently incorporated, just one part of the greater sum, never brash or overdone.

ohmygodIneedtobuyanothersixteenbottles of this...

Texture/feel is also utter perfection, in terms of texture/feel. Slick, creamy, full, a bit sticky, superbly round and, again, creamy (!!), it's just right for the flavor. You want to keep the beer in your mouth forever not only because of how it tastes, but also how pleasurable it feels. Like a room temperature vanilla ice cream and 7-Up float that has merged into a velvety soup.

Boogoop is one of the best beers I've had in recent memory, and really one of the best beers EVER. It's also yet another example of why bigger beers should be drunk at higher temps. At the right spot, like mid/high 50s Fahrenheit, this nears being not just great but transcendental. What a treat. Daaayaaamn.

I can't believe I didn't rate this one when I had it, unfortunately my notes have no date on when I tried this one, but here is what my notes say on it...

Pours a cloudy hazy amberish brown color, with a super thick off white khaki head. Smells very malty with a hint of hoppy sweetness. Initial taste - malt bomb but very pleasant balanced finish with aftertaste slightly bitter and sweet. low carbonation definitely unlike anything else, probably thanks to the buckwheat! good boo goop!
