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.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. The aroma is very nice sweet caramel, Amarillo hops stand out, sugary. The flavor is between a English and American style BW; sweet fruity hops, sugary caramel, hot. Dry. Sticky. This is damn good.

341ml bottle. Pours a deep clear reddish-amber color with an off-white head that leaves some film on the beer and a thick ring. Nice spicy aroma that hints of cinnamon red hot candies and ripe fruits, as well as sweet toffee malts and some hop resins. The flavor is a little on the sweet side, but pretty good besides that. Big English toffee on the malt, sugar plum, orange, and molasses, with a mildly hoppy finish. The level of booziness is about what you’d expect, and the carbonation is on the softer side. This is a good barleywine for sure, but not awesome by any means. Good to get some nice Canadian ticks in though.

oakbluff (437) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 20, 2011
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 (2542) - 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 (7824) - 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 (14659) - 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 (4903) - 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.
