Notes/Commercial Description:
Behold! The fifth collaborative effort of Three Floyds 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.

22oz bottles and draft only.

The body is lighter in color from the rice, golden hue, thin cap and collar.
The aroma is really clean, it really smells like Zombie Dust in a way to me, with a light clean malt base it really lets the hops stay clean and crisp.
Flavors are hop forward like crisp citrus and fruit notes, light pineapple and hints of mango, yum. I really like what the rice did in here actually. one of my complaints with a lot of ABWs is they get really resinous and sticky, and this one is not that way.
Mouthfeel is light thanks to the rice. well done.

Color me impressed. Better then i expected, worth grabbing if you like the style.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a standard pint glass.

A - pours a slightly cloudy straw colored. Surprised at how light the SRMs are. A nice two and a half off white head that provides a good amount of lacing.

S - citrus hops with a piney sidekick dominate. Slightly boozy. Not sure I it's there or my mind is fooling me but there seems to be a bit of the rice note found in the rice beers. Onion.

T - hop dominated. Mainly citrus and pine but some grass notes are there too. Not much in the way of malts. A nice bitterness that is just slightly coarse lingers slightly.

M - medium bodied with medium high carbonation. A fair amount of carbonation as a head can be roused up from some swirling if the glass.

D - surprisingly easy to drink. The hops are nice and the alcohol is muted for being 10%+.

Overall another nice beer coming in from this collab. I don't think I enjoyed it as much as Boogoop but its good. Hoppy with a good mouthfeel for the abv makes this a solid beer. I wish there were some 4.25 ratings available as I'd have some here.

This poured out as a clear yellowish gold color with a nice fluffy white head on top. The retention and lacing on this beer were great. The smell of this beer is loaded with hoppy aromas, totally not what I was expecting but I'm very pleased nevertheless. The taste of this beer is also loaded with hoppy citrus and pine notes with a really nice subtle malt base. The mouthfeel of this beer is on the lighter thin side which for the amount of flavor this beer has I'm surprised it's not a little thicker. Good carbonation and everything else is very good on this though. Overall very impressive, I didn't expect to enjoy this beer as much as I did. From start to finish this one really hit a high note with me. Would love to have this one again.

Thanks to a beer buddy from Chicago for this remarkable bottle. This beer is the fifth collaborative effort of Three Floyds and Mikkeller. Apparently this offering was brewed in both Europe and in Chicago and that both editions have subtle differences in each. I was only able to try the American version. Pours hazy dark orange with a one finger off-white head. The aromatic traits of florals, resin, and pineapple reminded me more of a double IPA rather than a barley wine. The flavors supported my initial claim – pleasant, floral, and sweet pine along with hints of pineapple, grape some lemon and mango. Medium mouthfeel with a touch of stickiness and moderate carbonation. The finish suggests a long aftertaste of some dry and resiny bitterness with a good and pleasant floral bite. Overall, one of my favorite collaborations.

A- Pours a golden amber color with a nice whiteish colored head. Head has great retention and leaves quite a bit of layered lacing.

S- Quite a bit of hops and alcohol here in the nose. Hops are spicey and tropical.

T- A good amount of heat from the alcohol. A good amount of spices. A good amount of bitterness here too. Picking up quite a bit of lemon . A very light malt back bone here.

M- Sticky for sure. Medium in body and a bit higher than medium in carbonation.

O- A bit of different twist on this one for sure. As I drank the bottle this one grew on me quite a bit.

This collaborative Mikkeller - Three Floyds beer was on tap at my local bottle shop. Poured from a growler into a New Belgium snifter. Pours a murky orange-apricot color with a nice one finger head (quick dissipation) and really nice Belgian lacing. I try to nose it and damn! There's that damn FFF smell! Big, ripe tropical fruits like peaches and oranges and a solid, sweet, malt behind it. If you've had FFF, you know what I'm talking about. This stuff smells like Dreadnaught, only just a tad lower on the nose-meter.

Big blend of flavors, full body, and a slick, creamy feel. Huge syrupy sweetness like butter and marmalade on the front of the palate. The hops come in, but don't overload the palate. They blend with the sweetness and bring on flavors of apricots and pineapples. The finish is fairly dry, but remarkably smooth and free of booze for such a high ABV beer.

Barleywine my arse. You could tell me this is an Imperial IPA and I'd tell you it's a damn nice one. I won't quibble. You can call it a barleywine if you want, just be sure to call ME if they ever make more of this. This stuff is like Dreadnaught with a bit more sweetness and higher ABV. In other words, darn good.
