A "Vin d’orge" to be distinguished from American barley wines. Unique, but if linked to any other type of beers, it would be classic English barley wines.

Wine from barley sugar. One single variety of noble hop and one single variety of malt were used.

bottled, big thanks to the quebequois guys for bringing this to pilsen. poured a reddish amber with not much sign of a head; aroma of vanilla malted milk and peat; plenty of butterscotch and apple peel zestiness in the finish, though still a tad on the cloying side

Found this little gem at Dep Rahmann. I have no idea how long it was sitting there but I’m glad I found it. Pours a hazy orange amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet, and honey with malt and almost biscuity. Taste is thick and a little syrupy. Sweet barley and malt blast the palate with warming aftertaste of alcohol. Very nice beer.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Bottle from a trip to Montreal back in April. Pours a murky brown with a thin white head. Plums and caramel, a touch of chocolate and toast. Medium bodied, a bit of cardboard and some smoke. Rather empty. Finishes up with a little bit of sweetness and more chocolate cardboard flavors. A bit boozy on the finish.

Bottled, thanks hanniku and Timo A! Dark amber color. Very sweet, berryish, fruity and caramelly aroma with vanilla. Thick sweet flavor with toffee, caramel amd berries with raspberry and some rough herbal bitterness in finish. Chewy mouthfeel. Aroma is nice but the finish is dull.

Pours a cloudy amber color with a thin offwhite head. The aroma is pleasant but simple, caramel is the main attraction here. The flavor has a malty signature with caramel and hops, there’s mild bitterness in the end. The main flaw of this beer would be the palate, is feels lighter than any barley wine / english strong ale I’ve tasted and the texture feels dead, maybe it’s the very low carbonation. Overall, it’s a pleasant beer to sip, but not on par with the classics of the style.

Interesting beer.........It’s got a really nice smooth subtle sweetness, reminds me of a good mead. Really nice caramel malts, some piney hops, and a semi bitter finish. A pleasure to sip and enjoy.

2009-07-19. Dark orange amber body with a modest beige head. Aroma is alcoholic and malty. Dry with touches of sweet caramel. (6+) Flavour is malt forward, dry alcohol in the finish lingers. Average palate. Okay but a bit rough overall. Bottle, approximately 1 year old from Rahman, Monteal
