hanniku (13) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2009 Draught at the brewpub. Dark brown color. Small vanishing beige head. Abundant sweetish aroma with the strong tones of wine, raisins, vanilla, bourbon, wood, caramel and fruityness. A rich and intense flavor follows much the aroma. The warming notes of alcohol are modestly present both in aroma and in flavor. Long sweetish aftertaste. An enjoyable and complex barrel-aged Barley Wine, merci beaucoup Marc!

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2009
En fût au Broadway. La bière ou je devrais dire l’élixir se présente avec une couleur brune très fonçée ainsi qu’un col de mousse crémeux, imposant et très durable. Au nez c’est le caramel fonçé qui s’exprime en premier, ensuite on dénote des tons de chêne, de vanille et de fruit noir. Pour finir l’alcool enrobe le tout. En bouche le corps est rond avec une effervescence faible et crémeuse. Au départ on goûte des saveurs de sucre brun, vient ensuite une bonne présence de chêne et de vanille et pour terminer l’alcool et le caramel fonçé s’exprime longtemps en étalement. Le 10.5% d’alcool est bien camouflé Débil et Complexe!!!

radiomgb (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2009
Murky brown in colour with a thin beige head, light lacing. The aroma is lightly hopped, sweet with noticable alcohol, woody with some sweetness. The flavour is a bit watery and thin, high amounts of alcohol, some hops and a caramel sweetness. Bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. The finishes is the weirdest part of this beer, some hops but total alcohol domination.

A very light bodied barley wine. Syrupy, lack of balance and tons of alcohol.

Draught at Mondial 2008, Montreal, Quebec.
Sampled on May 30, 2008.

Verre de 12 oz, au Vices et Versa. Arômes très fruités (raisins secs, cerises noires) et légèrement boisés. Robe brune et trouble, faible mousse. Très ronde en bouche, le malt caramel et fruité (raisins, pruneaux et cerises) mène à une finale alcoolisée. Légère touche amère en finale. Très intense, les saveurs fruitées gagneraient à être plus équilibrées.

grandgenie (259) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2009
j’ai bu de cette chose 3 fois durant le mondial et depuis le petit pub de broadway je ne le regarde plus de la même façon... Dégusté en fût au mondial de la bière dans le verre de festivité. Arômes de cerises, canneberges, banane, vanille et bois. Du goût plein la bouche, du corp, très bien balancé. bref elle est très bien balancé. Un goût de raisin, bois de santal, beurre, caramel, banane et whiskey. Mon coup de coeur du mondial toute catégorie confondu. Du vrai bonbon.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2008
A deep dark clear brown ale with a thin off white head. A superb oaken aroma, vinous aroma and wild yeasts. In mouth, a smooth and complex barley wine, with light caramel, vanilla, wood, Brett. rich and complex. Wow! Tasted at Mondiale 2008, June 1 2008.

Pours a murky brown color with a medium, light brown head. Pleasant aroma of oak, vanilla and caramel, there’s not much of a hops presence. Very good flavor of vanilla, oak, carame, it’s malty all the way through. The body is light to medium with a liquorous texture and soft carbonation. For a first experiment with barrel aging, I think it’s a definite success.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2008
[1405-20080530] Tap. Sugary vanilla aroma is very sweet and strong and has noticeable wood notes. Hazy, dark brown body with a small quick light tan head. Sweet vanilla pineapple flavour has lots of woodiness and something like coconut. Medium-full body. Lots of woodiness distracts from the sweetness, but still very boozy.
(5T @ Mondial; Montreal, QC)
