pumpkinhead2 (537) - Longueuil, Quebec, - MAR 19, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2015 Bière orangée tirant vers le brun, bien voilée, effervescence faible, et surmontée d’un col assez large, un peu brunâtre, mousseux, rocailleux, bien dense, et persistant. Arômes principalement houblonnés d’un houblon qui semble surtout résineux, mais également fruité, agrumes (orange et pamplemousse surtout), ananas, mangue, cantaloup... Le breuvage dégage également des effluves plus maltés de pain légèrement grillé, pâtisserie et sucre d’orge, ainsi qu’un alcool bien perceptible. Le nez est agréable et adéquatement intense, mais sa complexité me semble un peu faible, surtout pour un vin d’orge. En bouche, ce n’est à peu près pas pétillant, mais l’onctuosité au palais est excellente, c’est soyeux, liquoreux et même légèrement huileux. Au goût, et un peu contrairement à ce que le nez laissait présager, l’entrée en bouche est très maltée et tout de même assez sucré, beaucoup de sucre d’orge avec nuances de miel, caramel, réglisse rouge et bonbon aux fruits. On note également des saveurs maltés plus céréalières (pain légèrement grillé) et fruitées (cerise, fraise, framboise, mûre, raisin rouge…). Un fort agréable houblon résineux et fruité (agrumes et ananas surtout) accompagne progressivement ce malt, en route vers une finale à l’amertume somme toute plutôt modérée malgré un IBU affiché à 101. Alcool tout juste perceptible en bouche et très bien intégré. Équilibre malt/houblon fort impressionnant, et intégration parfaite des différentes saveurs entre elles. En bouche, l’intensité et la complexité sont excellentes. Très bonne bière!

750ml bottle, gift from friend. Thanks friend. This beer is good, but not good as I thought would be. Smell is caramel and exotic fruits like Hawaii, but also soap, like Mom when I used to curse, or shitty Chiclets gum. Taste less soap, lots of sweet and bitter end, maybe too much bitter end. Overall good but weird barley wine, would like to try more fresh. Sweet Christ I’m tired.

Ölföreningen 2015. Smak och doft av tallbarr, honung, blommor, viol, mandelmassa, nektar. Oljig, rund och len, stor sötma, fin beska. Gott!

Pale amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is softly sweet and a little bit hoppy. A little bit herbal and slightly honeyish as well. Has a little bit of nice fruit and a touch of soft hoppiness. Has a little bit of honey and toffee notes. Nice brew.

Vignale (2497) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier. En stor söt BW med förvånandsvärt lite humle för att kallas american. Istället blommiga godissmaker, viol, pastill, syltade apelsinskal, agave/kaktus, nektar. Mjuk och rund, ingen alkhol som sticker ut. Riktigt gott.

sudomorph (893) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2015
750ml bottle. 10/2014. Pours a clear orange/caramel with a one finger, off whore head that thins to a thick film. Aroma has big, sweet notes of citrus, pine, resin, caramel, and bread. Taste is sweet but balanced. Caramel, bread, resin, pine, citrus, and a sugary, bitter ending. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Syrupy in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a big, sweet, bitter, hoppy barley wine.

RhetoricalAns (551) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2015
750 mL bottle. Slightly murky brown amber pour, finger of foamy light tan head. Malty aroma, caramel, some brown sugar, fairly sweet for a barely wine. Aroma also had some fruit, cherry. and some resin hop as well. Taste is a similar mix of sweet malt and decent hops. Full body, slightly sticky.

Spab (2757) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
750 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a murky copper/orange with large, lasting cream-coloured head. Aroma is piney hops, sweet caramel, brown sugar and both light and dark fruit. Flavour is rich and moderately sweet with solid piney hoppiness, lots of caramel, some brown sugar, a little cherry and pear. Boozy, but without a lot of alcohol heat. Big body. Impressive.

The beer pours a rusty copper colour, hazy, with a long lasting rocky lighjt tan coloured cap. The aroma is dark fruit, caramel, and citrus. The mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is caramel and citrus, and not very well balanced
