fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle, tasting at Ferris’
Dark amber color, clean, with small head. The aroma is a bit cheesy, some Parmigiano Reggiano. Decent body strength, just moderate sweetness; some caramel flavor, some malt, light Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, and a fair amount of bitterness, and hop resins.
Good beer, nothing exceptional though,

Ferris (12728) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle - Caramel, toffee and some umame. As it warms, light butterscotch. Clear copper with a decent beige head. Burnt caramel, toffee and a long finish. Sweet and some nice bitterness to balance. Decent.

ACHops (1360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2015
On tap @ Uber. Pours medium orangish copper with very thin white head. Aroma is hefty sweet dark caramel malt and booze. Taste is likewise - big sticky caramel malt, plenty boozy but sweetness is actually restrained. Body rather thin for the style and only light hops for balance. I’d expect a bit more complexity from a barleywine.

maxwelldeux (4348) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle at a barley wine tasting. And noticeably the worst of the evening. Pours a clear amber color with a small head on it. Nose has some slight caramel elements, and seems a bit harsh to me. Taste was light and I actually found that there wasn’t much to this beer. Meh.
