UPDATED: JUN 9, 2009 Draft via randall. Slightly cloudy golden with a thin creamy off-white head. Great retention and above average lacing. Aroma is a ton of hops, mostly citrus and pine with caramel malt that somehow manage to get through this thick wall of hops. Flavor is also amazingly hoppy with citrus, pineapples, mango, pine, toasted malt and alcohol. I haven’t tasted the straight version of this one, but on the randall, this is candy for lupomaniacs. Oily mouthfeel.

Draught. At Mondial 2009 - day 1. Apparently the Mondial version is "hop infused." Hazy amber pour with an average creamy biege head Ɣ-). Solid, solid aroma of pine resin bitterness near-perfectly balanced against sweet juicy malt and medium-strong alcohol - mmmmmmm. Taste - big, boozy and sweet, a little spice to it, and plenty of grassy/floral/resin hop bitterness - man this is a good American style barleywine!. Sticky, thick, boozy mouthfeel, it finishes just a little quicker than I’d like for a big mutha of a BW, but no real complaint - just makes it more drinkable. Lovely stuff, well done!

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.

Ballon de 5 oz, au Pub Brouhaha. Arômes intenses de houblon très floral. Robe orangée, assez pâle pour le style, peu de mousse. En bouche, on retrouve un complexe mélange de miel et de fleurs qui mène à une finale amère de houblon résineux et floral, puis d’alcool. Celui-ci demeure très bien dissimulé et se manifeste par le côté sirupeux de la bière et une chaleur réchauffante en arrière-goût. Très bon.

Bottle, 12% on the label. Crystal clear copper colored pour with lots of frothy white head, good lacing. Aroma of sweet barley candy, toffee and a hint of minty, fruitiness. Taste is sweet, strong alcohol taste, candied fruits and toffee. Palate is a bit slick but has some good carbonation considering the age and ABV. Good stuff.

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!

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.
