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!

Parfum fort de "whisky" . Doux, pas acre, bon goût. Pas de mousse, peu de dentelle. Un petit goût de réglisse et de caramel.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2011
12oz bottle, a few months old. A surprisingly lasting white foam crowns the clear straight amber. Heady aroma where malts and hops both occupy a lot of room, climbing over each other with respect. Coniferous citrus take a fair amount of room, but quickly, strawberry fruitiness, both from the yeast and malt I presume, kick in and add a depth that is enhanced by vigorous malts, deeply honeyed, golden raisins, biscuity and almost cakey in their warming, desserty impression. The alcohol is not subtle, but is restrained enough for a beer that oscillates between 12% and 13%. Its most notable feature must be the relative smoothness that can certainly be associated to the brewer’s patience with this one, leaving it to acquire a sagacious wisdom after a few months, rounding both its alcoholic and hoppy edges off. The hops settled nicely in this one, now showing no agressivity in their citrusy, piney expansion. A smooth, surprisingly relatively thin and clean barley wine that does not overwhelm by its richness, but feels balanced and relaxing.
