Bottled 12/09/17 and consumed today. Pours a nice liquid caramel and is topped by a fluffy white head. Not bad looking at all. Aroma is caramel glazed hops, heavily balanced toward hops. Taste is sweet but not cloying with again a strong hops presence, it may be a bit harsh even. Mouthfeel is good, with ample carbonation. Not the best barleywine to come out of Quebec but I’m still happy to have sampled it at least once.

750 ml bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber with a resilient white head. Smell is light caramel, some fruits. Flavor is red berries, pears, cherries, caramel. Good herbal and roasted hop finish. Light to medium body, sticky mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

Pours a cloudy copper/brown colour with huge initial off white head amounting to a fair ring around the glass leaving a bit of lace. Aromas of sweet malts, sweet dark dried fruits, and some grassy/earthy hops. Flavours are sweet malts, dark dried fruits, warming alcohol, and caramel.

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a hazy reddish copper with a frothy off white head that dissipates into a ring. Aroma of booze, sweet malts, dark dried fruits, raw sugar and some earthy hops. Taste is caramel, sweet dried fruits and slight hop bitterness and alcohol warming on the finish. Decent barley wine that is nice to drink.

Ce vin d’orge titrant 9% d’alcool se détaille à 12 dollars à Québec, ce qui en fait sans doute un petit luxe (bouteille de 750 ml). Parfum de caramel, d’alcool, de sucre brun. Couleur marron, voilée. Belle mousse blanc cassé. En bouche, l’amertume tient de longue secondes, sans qu’elle ne soit trop puissante pour autant ou dérangeante. J’ai bu cette bière dans le verre «Don de Dieu», qui me semblait s’approcher de la forme que suggère le brasseur sur l’étiquette au dos de la bouteille. Chapeau d’ailleurs au brasseur qui donne des informations intéressantes sur son étiquette (type, couleur, style, température, quelques mots sur la bière). Chapeau aussi au design des étiquettes en tant que telles : quelles belles images et quelles belles bouteilles! Contrairement aux autres bières de ce brasseur (que j’ai adorées!), je ne rachèterai pas ce produit qui est sans doute simplement moins dans mes cordes. En revanche, cette bière est de qualité et elle mérite d’être goûtée, indubitablement! Cheers!

Hazy red-brown with a moderate amount of fine head. Smell is sweet like raw sugar, some tree hoppiness and a slight bit of sourness. Palate is medium bodied with some aggressive carbonation. Taste is quite sweet, slightly bitter and has a long bitter aftertaste. Needs aging for sure, would like to revisit in a few years.

Tried on tap as a sample at BdT. Tried it side by side with the Brandy treatment so may not have been fair. Cloudy dark amber with a nice biege head that disappeared fairly quickly. Lots of caramel and some dark fruit, sweet and slightly roasted malt, bitterness that I thought would be nice but threw the balance out for me a bit. Moderate carbonation and body, some alcohol with a sweetness that lingers.

Bouteille 750ml. Couleur brun acajou, mousse beige tenace laissant une belle dentelle. Arôme de malt grillé, d’orge et de prunes. Goût de caramel en grande quantité, fruits confits, alcool léger. Carbonation faible, corps un peu faible.

Bière trouble, couleur bois de noyer où flotte un très léger col mousseux, traçant une petite dentelle au verre. Des arômes capiteux de cerises noires, de kirsch, de noix grillées sur un patron intensément herbacé. Elle est d’une amertume robuste avec quelques sucres résiduels. Elle est soyeuse, vivement effervescente, avec une infime astringence. Cette bière se termine sur la chaleur de l’alcool, sur des arômes élégants et un crescendo d’amertume. Vraiment une belle bière.
