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!

Poured into pint. Hazy orange/amber beer, 2-finger off-white head, long retention, lots of laces. Smell - citrusy, peach, apricot, resiny, syrupy, creamy/rice hues.
Taste - sweet malts, not so boozy, american hops, rice is not very well detected..
Full body, soft carbonation, sticky. Just very good barleywine, no more.

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.
