chris__hartley (377) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2016
It pours murky mahogany with copper highlights; the head is beige and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: scotch barrels, toffee, and short bread. The taste is medium sweet that finishes heavy dry and lightly sour; there are notes of: peat, toffee, grapefruit, shortbread, and pepper. The palate is full bodied with light carbonation and a long finish. Overall, it’s so woody - in a good way. Also, surprisingly dry.

fhoublon (428) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Bouteille de 500ml achetée à la Fromagerie Atwater du Marché public Lachine au coût de $6.29. Dégustée le 2 avril 2016 (snifter). Bière cuivrée limpide. Mousse beaucoup, col épais beige crème foncé, persistant. Peu effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur d’alcool style "cognac boisé" bien présente, de vanille. Forte, assez sucrée, un peu amère. Saveur de butterscotch, de vanille, et d’herbes style menthe. Alcool ressort un peu trop en amorce. Très bonne mais le passage en fût de chêne lui donne un côté boisé/vanillé un peu trop prononcé à mon goût.

Diogène (1145) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2016
Robe brune surmontée d’une énorme mousse beige éternelle. Au nez, la vanille, le sucre d’orge, le bois et l’alcool, côtoient la cassonade et les houblons herbacés. En bouche, les saveurs sont similaires, finale amère. Texture crémeuse et gazéification presque idéale. mais légèrement trop prononcée,

Syrianne (9) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2016 does not count
Belle cuivrée avec une mousse qui persiste. Gout de caramel, d’épices et de chêne. En finale, une amertume bien présente. Barley Wine très à mon goût!

mabel (8353) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2015
[7623-20150909] 500mL bottle. Syrup caramel and taffy grains aroma. Clear, amber orange body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Butter caramel taffy flavour has a light popcorn cream note. Medium body is pretty smooth. Boozy and interesting. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

jercraigs (9499) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2015 2015-09-09. Hazy dark amber brown body, modest beige head. 3+ Aroma is alcoholic, dry malt, notes of caramel. Flavour is dry and alcoholic, Carmel notes, light wood, warming alcohol. Lingering vanilla notes in the finish. Leaves the cheeks tingly. Medium to full bodied palate, good carbonation. 3+ It has potential, and the highlights are quite pleasant but overall it’s just a bit too boozy for me today. Bottle shared by Ferris.

mcberko (12994) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2015 500mL bottle, sent from yourilevesque (thanks a lot, Youri), pours a dark amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out dark fruits, caramel, oak barrels and booze. Flavour is well-balanced, with toffee, dark fruits, oak barrels and alcohol in good harmony. Quite oaky and even somewhat astringent. Not super complex, but very well-integrated. Very good.

Ferris (11035) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle - Sweet caramel and a bit of oaky Woody notes. Cloudy copper with a decent white head. Lots of sweet caramel and bourbon notes. Sweet, little boozy but quite nice.

probstblueribbon (3652) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2015
500 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep amber/copper with a decent reddish-tan head. Aroma: Richly malty, lots of dark bread crust and some dark dried fruit, brown sugar and and toffee/treacle, a little buttery, some wood/barrel, faint vanillin. Palate: Medium+ body, relaxed carbonation, a bit thin considering the style and ABV. Flav.: Lots ’o malt again with plenty of dark dried fruit, toffee/treacle, a little molasses, brown sugar, bread crust, stinging alcohol, no hop character to speak of; sweet with decent bitterness and a long, very malty and boozy finish.

Not bad.
