beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, - DEC 13, 2012
Clear dark amber pour with a thin beige head. Interesting aroma of caramel, raisins and mild alcohol vapors. The flavor is ok, but a bit simple, caramel and raisins, also the aroma feels a lot more deep and rich than the flavor. The body is thick but the texture is not as liquorous or vinous as you’d expect from a barley wine, the carbonation is soft. Overall it’s an ok barley wine.

Ale de hardy at the brewery which is currently Canada’s best barleywine and rings in at 10.5% Crystal clear dark amber with a big fruity malty caramel nose. Wow, wonderful sweet sugary malts, candied plums, figs, cinnamon and spice. Simply delicious malty goodness. I just wish I was sipping this on a cold winter day.

bartlebier (1807) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2014
Pour@5e Mondial/Mulhouse - So. Syrupy acajou prune pour. Nose of richly suffused fruit sugars: after dinner white port, sherry. Taste also is dominated by macerated notes of sherry and port, going on reduced apricot jam, with a noticeable hop bitterness. Finishes like dry port.

Smallweener (18) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2014 D’une belle couleur orange brulée. La Hardy dégage un puissant parfum mélange du sucre d’orge & alcool. Son goût développe des notes de cerises noires caramélisées sur un bon PUNCH d’alcool qui se termine sur un petite amertume légèrement boisée. DÉLICIEUX. aha!
