On tap at The Common Table after the Jester King/Mikkeller beer dinner.
The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of biscuit malt, as well as a lot of orange citrus notes from the hops and some sugary notes.
The flavor is a nice mix of caramel malt and honey, as well some some orange citrus and pine notes from the hops. There is also the same sugary sweetness that I got in the aroma. There is also some alcohol present but the beer is still easy to drink. Overall, I think the beer tastes like a bigger version of Alpha King, with the same hop profile that I get in a lot of the Three Floyds beers.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
Glad I got to try this one, which I found to be very good.

On tap at Map Room's 19th anniversary party.
Served in a tulip, bright saturated orange tone, with a compact layer of white foam on the surface. Drippy lave all around the glass. Lasting retention.
Unique hop aroma, slightly woody and earthy, reminds me of sorachi ace a little bit. Flavors of rich caramel and resiny crushed hop cones.. Smooth feel, sweet and sticky on the lips. Medium bodied with a long bitter aftertaste. Overall pretty hop forward, as much of FFF's output is. Better than past goops, at least those in recent memory.

I had this on tap at the brewpub.
A - Copper,amber with a nice white head that didn't linger for more than just a few minutes. This thing has great legs as well.
S - Malty and sugary. Very little hop character.
T - Mostly malty, with some honey. It has a definite wine character to it. There was little hoppiness, but I did taste the slightest amount of grapefruit bitterness on the finish.
M - Quite viscous. It goes down like honey butter.
O - I really enjoyed this. Rich and malty with a wine like character. Nothing to powerful, but definitely a very enjoyable sipper. The alcohol crept up on me. Yah. Nice. It's different enough from a traditional barleywine to be considered "not normal". That's what the Floyds do best.

This was sampled at the FFF 15th Anniversary party. This was a must try, a buckwheat wine.
This arrived a pumpkin orange in color with a one finger white head. The nose is overpowering malts with some slight fresh hop aromas. It is extremely sweet on the nose. The flavors too are pure malts, very heavy on the caramel malts, with some light and fresh hop character. The malt dominates so heavily that you don't get any hop bitterness. You surprisingly don't get any of the 10.4% in either the nose or flavors. The sugar however prohibits this beer from showing much complexity. It drinks like an American barleywine and thankfully isn't like the other wheatwines that I've had (although this is a buckwheat wine). It's just hard for me to get past all the sugar. It drank exceptionally smooth on draft but this, like the other 'Goops is an acquired taste.

I obtained a growler of this beer in Dallas Texas at Whole Foods - The first FFF beer I have purchased locally in Texas (how it ended up here, I aint got a clue!)
A - Attractive amber deep orange hue through which flows a light continuous stream of small bubbles leaving a light lacing.
S - Intensely sweet and hoppy aroma with strong caramel and alcohol - unmistakable barley wine quality with a nice crisp grainy character.
T - Sweet caramel and buttered citrus on bitter bready backbone, nicely hoppy but a bit sweet
M - Succulent, clingy with ample cut from well-executed cabonation
O - This beer is a good choice for lovers of American style barley wines.

Had on tap at the FFF Anniversary party. Served in a plastic cup. Brewed in collaboration with Mikkeller, Buckwheat wine.
A: Pours a clear amber and deep gold straw mixture with a solid white head. Sheets of lace are left down the cup.
S: Grapefruits, sweet candy, honey and solid oat malts all fill the nose.
T: Candied sugars with a touch of semi-sweet honey. Grapefruit hops with a little touch of flower.
M: Medium to heavy bodied with a syrup like quality. Coats the entire palate. Little low on the carbonation.
O: This tasted pretty good and another solid addition to the "goop" family. The mouthfeel kind of lacked for me which was my only real knock.
