   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
HippyHop (396) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
I’m sort of surprised by how well-reviewed this stuff is. Not that I didn’t enjoy it, but I’m not as convinced as many below me. Pour is amber with the merest hint of a greyish-brown cap. Nose is lots of expected sugary/caramel sweetness, but with surprising (to me) herbal elements. There’s something here’s that’s almost like masala chai, along with raisins, candied cherries and orange peel, plus lots of sugar. Taste-wise it’s sweet and syrupy, lots of herbal/tea notes, noticeable but well-balanced alcohol. Sherry-like elements, more than port, although the sweetness up front reminds me more of a Pineau de Charentes, or an ice wine. The bottle I had was six months old, so hops are virtually nonexistent, save for a touch of bitterness on the finish. Neat stuff.

Apparence: D?une couleur brun caramel opaque, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse d?une bonne durée. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble quasi inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt caramélisé et de sucre d’orge. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps ample. Au goût, c’est un goût de malt caramélisé avec de fortes notes de sucres d’orge. Finale moyenne, avec aucune effervescence et idem pour l’amertume. Fiche technique Style: Barley Wine Format: 341 ml Taux d?alcool : 10,5% Température: 10°C

Une Barley Wine, pour un palais belge, c’est inhabituel. On en brasse peu par ici et il faut se faire à ces arômes particuliers. Celle-ci remplit son rôle et surprend par la richesse de ses saveurs. Faut juste pouvoir encaisser ce type de produits... Merci à Léon qui nous l’a ramenée de Montréal !

Notes: Fresh bread dough, bread crust, port, raisins, red candied fruits, cherry, cola, semi-sweet chocolate, medium roasted coffee, toffee, brown sugar, big bold malty nose with a good complexity as it warms up. Light earthy, herbal hop bitterness. Temperature is key for this beer. Don’t drink this cold or you’ll miss out. An awesome, rich, big sirupy and satisfying beer perfect for dessert. A big sipper that could be pair with a nice cigar or dark chocolate. (Francais) Notes de pâte de pain fraîche, de pain cuit, de croûte de pain brun, de cassonade. Les notes de porto et de fruits rouge confits comme la prune, la cerise, les raisins sultana et les dattes sont bien en évidence. Des flashback de cola artisanal, de chocolat mi-amer et de café brun. Les notes de malt fusent de tout part. C’est gros, généreux et sirupeux et on aime ça. Cette bière doit être sortie du frigo un bon 20 minutes a l’avance le temps de tempéré un peu avant de la verser, car froide on passe tout droit sur pleins de saveurs. Une amertume terreuse, florale et herbacée discrète en finale, avec une bonne dose de sucre résiduel. Une bière de dégustation riche avec beaucoup de corps parfaite pour après le repas et qui peut accompagner a merveille le chocolat noir ou un cigar (ou même une pipe de tabac si c’est votre truc!). Elle vaut la peine d’être essayé. Est-ce que je vais en racheté? Ceci était ma troisième, alors oui!

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
2014-10-25. Lightly cloudy dark amber brown body with a small frothy tan had. 3+ Aroma is fairly malty, pleasantly so, with a good amount of carmael and toffee notes, light molassess and moderate alcohol presence. 7++ Flavour is similarly malt forward, toffee/caramel sweetness but with finishes with enough bitterness to keep it fairly balanced. Moderate alcohol throughout. Relatively simple but a very solid take on the style. Enjoyable. Medium bodied palate with soft carbonation. On cask at Cask Days, Toronto.

biirusaikou (981) - - NOV 11, 2014
At Cask Days 2014. Dried fruits, maple syrup, pancake, warming alcohol, hints of spice, dry finish. Fine barley wine but maybe a bit too boozy
