On draft at 3floyds brew pub in Munster IN. Served in 12oz snifter.

A-Poured a rich dark maroon color with a thick marshmallow foam-like head.

S-Nose of glorious hops. Just astounding fresh smell of pine, citrus, and subtle caramel in the background. Having been released only days before, it wasn't surprising the hops were so prevalent.

M-Smooth, mildly sticky on the lips, subtle hop-attack at the back if the throat that wasn't unpleasant.

T-had dreadnaught? Think of that with a solid but subtle malt backing! If you've never had dreadnaught then it tastes like a hop bouquet of higher alpha acid hops like a cascade or centennial. (could be wrong. Just my opinion.) the malt is lighter and more sugary and caramelly than coffee or chocolate.

F-finish is great malt and a little heat from the alcohol.

Honestly it tastes like a dark DIPA right now and must switch to a barleywine after a few years.

Thanks to a bomber knocked on it's crown, those of us at the bar got to do a side-by-side of the draft version versus what was in the bombers. There was more difference than expected...

Appearance -- Pretty much the same, possibly lighter, more golden.

Smell -- Versus the tap version, this is HOT! Also, much more hop presence. Picked up some pine resin along with the bright citrus and tropical fruits.

Taste -- The only key difference between the bottle and the tap is the alcohol presence and the extra *umph* in the hop profile. While the draft was much smoother in flavor.

Mouthfeel -- Full-bodied, viscous, medium-low carbonation, but noticeably hotter than the draft.

Drinkability -- It might not be a bad idea to sit on this one for a few months before popping your first bomber. Still very good, but very intense. Let the heat die down, let the hops settle in. Of course, your mileage may vary.
