2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at bateau de nuit. Hazy copper pour, thin bubbly white head. Strange aroma, really quite hoppy, but old and oxidized as well. Menthol notes, caramel, tropical fruits (pineapple). Taste is boozy, fruity, vanilla/almond sweetness, a bit cloying. Palate is a bit flat, sweet.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
