Mucha gente peleó por esta preciada posesión. El "Green Card" por muchos años fue lo que muchos anhelaban obtener. Es por eso que pensamos que sería apropiado nombrar a nuestra más premiada cerveza de esta manera. Elaborada con 10% de alcohol con una senasión vicsosa y lúpulo que equilibra su enorme cuerpo, es esta una cerveza compleja que cambiará tu vida.

Merci à Frédéric pour cette bouteille de 355 ml! Robe plutôt orangée et même cuivrée. Un anneau comme représentation mousseuse. Au nez, malts caramélisés, toffee, touche de vanille, alcool et touche fruitée. Le goût est davantage simple avec son sucre brun, ses malts caramélisés et son alcool qui chatouille. En bouche, le corps m’apparaît être de moyenne densité avec un pétillement très actif et une texture légèrement liquoreuse. En finale, l’alcool transporte des notes plutôt chaudes et des houblons apparaissent subitement. Étonnant! Pas mauvais du tout. Certainement pas génial mais tout à fait charmant si on est capable d’apprécier la simplicité.

bottle 355 mL. amber cloudy color; aroma is mostly sweet, fruity and malt. leaves a silky sensation. Taste is mostly sweet with some slight bitterness and a kick of booze. tastes good, lots of flavor and better to drink slowly. the beer is very good although im not into barley wines. very nice anyway

AgentAle (1046) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
Aroma is rich malts, toffee, caramel, Belgian sugar. Taste is rich sweet malts with slight yeast and candy sugar. Light liquor burn but really not that bad. Quite nice. Appearance is a slightly hazy amber body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Percy0103 (259) - MEXICO - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. A cloudy brownish beer with a minimal white head. Aroma is of grapes, dried fruits, caramel and alcohol. There is also an acidic note that becomes noticeable after a couple of minutes. Taste is a combination of bitterness and sweetness, but at the end the sweetness prevails. It has a smooth character with medium carbonation and astringency. Slightly alcoholic finish.

It lacks the kick of a barley wine really. Just to sweet. Plus the traditional spicy malty elements of barely don’t really appear until the last few sips. So, palate is poor. Decent thick brown looks with small, tan head. Slight aroma of woods, berryrs and malts.

DuffMan (7836) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Davey. Dark amber with golden highlights and a medium light gold head. Sweet and brandy-ish through and through, all the way to the boozy finish. The body delivered fruity toffee and dry woody notes before alcoholic warmth burned them away. Missing complexity and malt structure-- their Centenario is a much better barley wine.

mcberko (9217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours an orange amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of toffee, alcohol, caramel malts, and dark fruits - quite a bit of heat. Flavour is similar, with buttery caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar, and booze. This is a lot better than the average rating suggests. Not that complex, but still pleasant enough, despite a decently harsh booziness. Decent.

tobias (204) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2013
22 oz bottle: color is a nice ruby, garnet color. Thin head that fades very quickly. Aroma seems to be fairly oxidized, almost sherry like. Some hints of sweet, candied fruit and alcohol. Taste is pretty much the same. Overly sweet, unbalanced and noticeable, harsh alcohol with oxidization. This is my first beer by this brewery and i am not a fan.

A boozy mess thatbisnt really a barleywine. Pours a dark murky ruby colour with a thin dead head. yhe nose is fruity with brown sugar and dried prunes and raisins. Mild flavour with a bit of fruitiness and mild toffee fruits. Boozy and boozy finish!

Chudwick (2416) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 5, 2013
bomber - pours ruby amber with light tan head. Nose is booze, dark fruit, brown sugar, and more dark fruit. Flavor adds caramel and nuts. Really harsh, wow. Dry from the booze. Pretty sure that this beer will NOT change my life. I wish I could find a date on the bottle, because the nuttiness makes me think this is really old. Metallic aftertaste. Very sweet!
