Bottle (341 ml). 2009 vintage. Shared by Minderbinder, thanks! Clear deep amber with no head and a small ring of off-white foam. Aroma of malt, caramel, fainted hops, fruits, alcohol, candi and toffee. Taste is moderately sweet with fruits, toffee, candi, caramel, alcohol and floral notes. Medium to full body. Light carbonation. Sirupy mouthfeel. Decent Barley Wine. Maybe a little over the hill.

Bottled sample via Fred82. Deep amber in colour with low carbonation. Aromas are of fat pale malts, booze, candied and stewed fruits, and caramel. Quite full bodied on the palate, with flavours of dark caramel, pale malts, candied orange peel, minerals, and a hint of spice. Pretty well balanced, but a touch boozy. The mouthfeel is a bit unique as it is quite slick, but the beer itself isn’t sweet or cloying. Solid.

330ml bottle - shared by the Quebec posse in Lithuania - thanks!
Super sweet aroma, worryingly so. Rich reddy orange, no head. In the mouth it’s incredibly full. Totally sweet but has an amazing yumminess to it too. The rocket fuel booze aspect is "hidden" behind the enormous sugariness. Also has enough hops to cut through that and with a cut-mixed-peel feel make it more liqueur-like.

Bottle 341 ml 2009 [8/4/8/3/16] : Pours ligth amber, low carbonatation, but not too bad considering age/style. Smells caramel, toffee and loads of sugar. Tastes caramel, sweet. Full bodied, Ok balanced. Not easily drinkable due to high amount of sugars. Very low taste of alchool, till the end of duration, where there is a little bit of alchool on the tongue. Very nice beer, to drink with moderation. Bottle 341 ml. 2011 [8/3/7/3/14] Pours brown, with more head than 2009. Off white foam, reducing, but lingering to a degree. Smells caramel and sugar. Does not taste alchool, but it does gets to the body. A little bit more bitter than 2009. Overall, i’m wondering if its the exact same recipe than 2009, due to a certain amount of differences, in appearance and taste. I do prefer the cellared one. Nice beer.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 14, 2012
2011 bottle (it appears -- scratched label) via a trade. Pours with a extremely dark brown, bordering on a black body with a lasting, off-white head with pretty solid lace. Mild alcohol legs above the legs. Excellent retention. Aromas are of brown sugar, maple, malty, caramel, floral, marmalade, toffee, citrusy/orangey hops. Vanilla, deeply bready, mild oxidation. Flavors are very sweet, bordering and perhaps fully cloying! Brown sugar, molasses, candied citrus and marmalade. Vanilla, boozy, strong ethyl alcohol, medium bitter. A lot of sharp alcohol and esters. Smooths a bit after volitization and warming. Brandy. Dried figs, bitter. Syrupy body. Low carbonation. Burnt and warming.

2012-01-22. Very dark brown body, small tan head fades. Aroma has light alcohol up front, a modest but rich sweet malt character. Flavour is similar, mild alcohol throughout, sweet sugary malt middle, mild balancing bitterness is magnified by the alcohol in the finish. Malt takes on some more nuance as it warms, sugary fruit touches, light toasty malt undertones. Simple, and the alcohol is overly prominent but fairly enjoyable malt forward barleywine. 2011 Vintage bottle bought July 2011 from Dep Peluso, Montreal

11-12-11: Bouteille 341 ml Édition 2011: Bière rubis-rouge foncée, claire et limpide, sans effervescence et avec un mini collet de mousse blanche. Ressemble totalement à une barley wine. Les premiers arômes sont ceux de l’alcool pénétrant dans les narines. Suit de petites notes de fruits rouge et de beurre chaud. Plutôt sucrée, légère amertume. Notes de cerises, d’alcool, de camarel fondue. Corps asser puissant. Texture grasse et moyennement ronde. Carbonisation moyenne. Finale astringente sur des notes d’alcool.

Très sexy pour un barleywine avec sa couleur rouge/violet. Gros parfum de raisin bleu de l’ontario et autres fruits mûrs. L’astringence du houblon ressort assez fort en arôme également. Le goût est assez unique, j’ai vraiment l’impression de croquet dans un jujube sûr au raisin en entrée de bouche, ensuite le houblon floral et l’alcool s’installe rapidement. Difficile à rendre un verdict, un peu de vieillissement aiderait assurément.

Bière brune foncée aux reflets rougeâtres. Odeur d’alcool sucré, de fruits séchés: de figues, de dattes avec de belles traces de houblon. Bon goût assez liquoreux, alcoolisé et sucré avec beaucoup de corps. Elle surprend à chaque gorgée. Parfois elle semble trop sucrée, mais elle fini par nous convaincre. Ça rentre aux toasts!
