750ml bottle. Bourgogne Wine glass. Cute & orangish color & cloudy appearance. Yellowish off-white creamy foam forms a thick, sticky & lasting crown as well as draws lacing rings on sides. Superb aroma profile: hints of orange, toffee, crystal malt, ripe plum, ripe apricot, herbal hues –caraway- & subtle resinous back. Fruity, malty & creamy upfront. Citric bitterness –orange & tangerine juice notes- follows. Full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous texture & dried palate. Slight resinous & grapefruit flavors in the middle. Sweet/slight bitter finish. Ripe fruit & resins on the aftertaste. ABV is shown as a kind, delicious sugary & warm sensation. A BIG ONE!!

A: Orange brown and moderately cloudy with no carbonation and not a full finger of yellowish head. Random lacing almost like Thai writing, or Hebrew.



S: Boozy, crème brulee, sweet, stinky foot, aged cheese much like the rind of Brie, a light floral essence.



T: Buttery, crème brulee, toffee, light sweetness, little alcohol, a burnt bitter quality on the finish which may be the hops and toasted malts, or both. The brie rind like taste comes through as well.



M: Medium, syrupy body with foamy carbonation. This leaves a light feel to heavy beer.



O: Got this on Wishbeer in Bangkok, drank in Kunming March 29th, 2015. Great feel to it for a barley wine, and the flavours meld together very well. Hugely expensive, but really hard to find anything by 3 Floyds outside of the Chicago area, let alone in ASIA, which was a huge blessing.

750ml bottle poured into tulip 19/8/13

A slightly hazy amber liquid, a few pieces of sediment and some slow bubbles feeding a solid three fingers of tan foam that has slowly falls to a thin film leaving partial rings deep down the glass

S candied pineapple, grapefruit, pine, and a heavy amount of caramel, so earthy notes I can't quite place and a hint of booze, has some orange marmalade as it warms

T more pine and a little rind, shes a bit of a palate wrecker with loads of hops, shes a little sweet, not sure what the rice malts doing as I don't really taste it, a little Flintstones vitamins

M I want to say its thick but it fluffs up and feels creamy, perhaps this fluffed up feel is the rice? quite sticky on the lips with pine and rind lingering, not sure where the booze is hiding

O not lacking anywhere and if you like hops odds are good you'll like this, I'd like to taste it down the track but I don't mind the hop bomb it is today

rice didn't really play a big part for me anyways, drinking like a DIPA today and I enjoyed it even though it wasn't exactly what I was expecting

Served in a snifter glass from the bottle (picked this gem while I was in Iceland).

Appearance: Cloudy cooper colored brew with medium to heavy bubbles on the body. Head I illy is an off-white color rising to about one finger's length. Drops with zero lacing after two or three sips.

Smell: Light hops and malty scent.

Taste: Like the smell but extremely amplified, bitter and floral with a liquor feel to the brew. Has a sour feel which makes you think of citrus (tangy grapefruit).

Mouth: Very sticky brew makes you think of rye bread because of its light sourness. You reminisce lemon plus skin at the end.

Overall: Very good brew, only problem it had is that it is closer to an imperial stout than any Barleywine I have ever tasted. Think of it as a hybrid brew the Barleywine DIPA lovechild. Drink with love...Salud!
