A decent Canadian Barley Wine. Smells of Apricot, Vanilla and Cinnamon. Great tastes and great after bite I really enjoyed this one. Thanks Mill Street for another great product!

Gluepot (62) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Tapped into a 2013 version of this Ontario BW. The nose is soft toffee and that is also the dominant element of the taste profile. The toffee element is delicious, with some balance from bready malt and some hop presence. The texture is a bit thin for a 11.5% barleywine and I would love to get a little more punch from the malt to set off the sweetness.

This one poured a very light brown with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, dark fruit, and brown sugar. Flavor was similar, pretty smooth and a nice example of the style.

Bottle contributed by estover. We missed you at this one. Pours a brownish orange with an off-white head. Aromas of dark fruit and caramel. Taste is slightly sweet and the body is medium thick with medium carbonation. I would say this is a near perfect example of the style. No frills.

hoppybeerlover (42) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2014
2004 bottle: Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin-lacing white head. Mild, yet enticing, aroma has some pleasant sweet toasty caramel and green hoppiness. Starts with a nice sweet maltiness but thins toward a warming alcoholic finish. The body just doesn’t live up to what the aroma promised. Too thin for a high gravity beer, which makes the alcohol more apparent.

cfrancis (2359) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
2009 Pours a dirty brown/gold with an almost still carbonation. Aroma is sweet toffee a small booze and barley. Taste is syrupy, sweet toffee, honey, grains, still a little boozy but has mellowed and is not harsh at all. Well balanced and it’s almost cough medicine sweetness.
