12 ounce bottle via glouglouburp- pours a hazy burnt caramel colour. Not much for head or lacing. Nose- strong pine and caramel/tofee. Very rich Taste- very sweet toffee, oranges, nutty. pretty much a malt bomb where the nice pine in the nose doesn’t carry through in the taste. Lingering sweet finish.

330. Thanks, Dany! Pours an opaque and very dark brown with a loose and short-lived slim tan rim on top. Big sweet caramel and toffee nose. Thick, sticky body. Caramel, nuts, toast, toffee, molasses and brown bread on the mid-palate. Long sweet sticky finish. Nice malty sweet barleywine.

TheJester (2447) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2011
341 mL bottle in trade from SlovakSniper. (Geez I’m going through these quickly.) Transparent orange-brown with almost no head. Nice aroma of peaches, brown sugar, alcohol and a bit of citrus from the hops. The flavour is a little sweeter and definitely fruitier than most barleywines. These flavours come up front, and are followed by alcohol, malt, and surprisingly little alcohol. Pretty juicy for a barleywine. But not bad.

czar (7484) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2011
on tap at broue ha ha. deep copper, almost mahogany with a little head. nice dark caramel malts, roastiness, and a lot of residual sugars in there - too much for me. good aromatic hops that support though, slight alcohol feel, low carbonation (hope that the bottle is that way too...). an ok-barleywine.

mcberko (13505) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2010
341mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp, pours copper amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, dried dark fruits (plum, raisins, dates), and a slight roasted character. Flavour of plum, caramel malts, some floral notes, citrus hops and a slight alcohol finish. Not terribly complex or dense in the palate, but a very enjoyable barley wine nonetheless.

godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2010
341ml bottle at Brouhaha. pours dark amber with a very little white head that quickly dissipates. aroma is loaded with sweet malts, and not much of anything else. taste is toffee, dark fruits and alcohol. not getting much hops at all like i expected. way too sweet, and not balanced very well. mouthfeel is good, full bodied with good carbonation. overall i’m not too crazy about this beer at all.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2010
Bottle. Dark amber with minimal skiff. Boozy malt scent with orange zest. Strong malt with a nice airy hop note riding across. Hops last long after the alcohol finish. Very drinkable for ABV.

Thanks cfrancis for the bottle. Pours out a crystal clear deep amber with a small tan head and slippery lacing. Excellent colour. Scents of sweet caramel, sweet citrus, peaches, mild apple, sugar. Smells rich and is nicer when warmed up a bit. Mmmm.. tasty caramel and lots of fruit. Very good sweetness, mild pine, thick and syrupy, resin, nice bitterness. Pretty straight forward yet tasty. It also has been a while since I’ve had a good barley wine. No alcohol distraction. Full bodied and syrupy, hidden bitterness and a really nice finish.

Le liquide a une robe cuivrée. Sa tête est petite et fugace. Au nez, les houblons sont présents avec des effluves convaincants de fruits et de fleurs. Quant au malt, il est riche et rappelle le caramel et le sucre d’orge. L’alcool qui monte au nez dégage un parfum floral. À force d’y plonger les narines, la présence fruitée se complexifie davantage : les fruits sont macérés et gorgés de sucre. Au goût, les saveurs des grains maltés sont aussi intenses avec ce même retour de douceur fuitée. À travers l’alcool qui chatouille la langue, les houblons sont goûteux et donnent une amertume qui change selon l’humeur de mes papilles : parfois faible et parfois modérée. En bouche, le liquide possède une rondeur appropriée pour le style avec sa texture veloutée et sa douce agitation. En finale, les saveurs florales de l’alcool et les notes amères des houblons cherchent véritablement à s’accrocher derrière la langue.
