On tap at the FFF brewpub.
From the menu;
Behold! The fifth collobarative effort of Three Floyd's and Mikkeller. This complex ale is just the beverage for canal boat trips in Copenhagen or the brutal Chicago winter. This year's offering will be brewed in both Europe and in Chicago. Look for both editions and the subtle differences in each. Cheers and thanks for supporting craft beer. 10.4 % ABV. $9 snifter.
Well... That's a pretty useless menu blurb if you're looking for info about the flavor profile... But here we go.
Clear, honey-touched golden body with some orange hues. Ecru head of one fluffy finger. Great retention and nice lacing.
Not a lot of malt presence on the nose-- perhaps some crystal? I know this is brewed with rice, but I can't find it in the aroma. Smells hoppy though-- and some booziness coming across as well.
The flavor has a light sweetness up front, then dries out, shows off some big bitterness, and finishes dry and boozy. The hop flavors aren't nearly as prominent as the hop bitterness, but some floral and spice notes come through... Perhaps just a hint of citrus as well.
Feels pretty hefty-- ample carbonation though. Firm body with an oily lingering sensation.
Overall-- not the best from Munster... In fact, this is the worst of this collab series... Still, it isn't bad, it's just that perhaps my expectations were too high, or maybe I was hoping for a flavor wallop! This seems too boozy and bitter, and riceay have been a poor choice (to be fair, what else is left? They've done oat, wheat, rye, and rice?!)

Bottle: Poured a dark blonde color ale with a medium size foamy head with limited retention and some light lacing. Aroma of grainy cereal notes with quite bit of sweetness. Taste is also dominated by grainy cereal notes with some dry notes with quite a bit of residual sugar. Body is about average with medium carbonation and light warming alcohol. Interesting experience but just too sweet for me at the end of the day.
