Snoro (303) - Montréal, Quebec, - MAR 28, 2012
Une bonne odeur de banane. Une belle mousse qui s’estombe rapidement. Un goût de velour, du stock et d’alcool, avec un peu d’amertume.

Bouteille 341 mL, version 2014 Couleur : Couleur brunâtre, très peu de carbonatation, mais une intéressante effervescence, pour une bière vieillie. Arômes : Nez complexe. Quelques mots de même : Caramel. Vanille. Érable. Toffee. Alcool. Bois. C’est prometteur. Goût : Bouche pas aussi complexe que le nez. On goûte énormément la vanille et le bois. On perd, en quelque sorte, l’érable, assez discret dans la version standard de l’Équinoxe. Petite finale touchant ce qu’on s’attend d’une scotch ale : caramel, toffee. Appréciation : On retrouve l’érable finalement en fin de bouteille. C’est très bon, peut-être un peu trop barriqué. Intéressant de comparer l’originale et la version vieillie pour bien comprendre les différences entre les deux brassins. Pour ceux déjà partiaux à l’originale, la version chêne saura vous charmer à nouveau.

Bule (1716) - California, USA - APR 1, 2016
12oz bottle of 2014 bourbon barrel aged. Pours a reddy brown color with a bit of head. Rich bourbon and malt flavors. Spice balances well.

dchmela (3002) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle from Steve. Pours a hazy brownish red with a thin off white head. Aroma is bourbon and maple with some woodsy dark fruit notes. Medium malt body with bourbon, roasted grain, maple syrup and earthy hop notes. Complex and really good.

electrotype (605) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2016
Alcool fort assez présent au nez, on s’attend à quelque chose de corsé. L’érable tarde à se pointer la face au nez, mais en bouche c’est une autre histoire! L’érable est bien présent et est absolument déletable! Je ne suis pas un fan fini de bieres sucrées, de scotch ale en particulier, mais quand c’est réussi comme ici, difficile de résister! Les bières vieillies de Dieu Du Ciel sont vraiment une coche au dessus de pas mal tout ce qui se fait d’autre au Québec.

punkska101 (1601) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle from ddc release A: bourbon, plums, caramel, raisins, red fruits, dates alcohol app: murky brown small beige head t/p: full body with sweet and medium long finish. Soft carbonation. O: a nice touch is added from this barrel aging the bourbon play nicely the complexity already present in the original brew. Alcohol is a tad too present.

Stoned99 (1050) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2016
2014 Bottle from Marché Village. Aroma: strong aroma of bourbon, candied fruits, spices, woody. App: hazy dark burgundy, murky, medium tan head, little retention but still has some lacing. Taste and palate: medium to full body, medium sweetness, a hint of maple in mouth, really subtle bitter and alcohol finish but this is way more sweet than bitter. Overall: good warming beer. Quite complex. Like the woody love given by the barrel. Quite sweet but this is nothing unusual for this kind of beer.
