maneliquor (3393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dark brown with a small, tan head leaving very sticky lacing. Nose is big on the dark fruits - raisin, dates, fig. Fairly stewed and tofee focused stuff with mild chocolate powder. Taste is dry and chocolate driven, mild pepper, stewed figs/dates, raisin sweetness and brown sugar. Some vanilla and banana on the finish. Moderate heat. think his could do with a fair bit of age on it. Decent stuff

Boutip (5033) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light clear amber color ale with a rather large foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet toffee notes with caramelized malt with light sweet vinous notes. Taste is also dominated by sweet toffee notes with some caramelized malt with a sweet white wine finish. The whole mix is sweet without being overly so that it falls into gross territory. Body is about average with good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Not as complex as I was anticipating with nice used of barrel-aging treatment.

DrSilverworm (7997) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2013
12.7oz bottle, purchased around 6 months ago. Shared with caterwaul. We had just drank the base 1 beer before this. Hazy amber reddish color. Thin khaki head. Good rows of lace. Dark fruit, vinous. some wood in the nose. Good, smooth, sort of creamy lighter carbonation, as in the base. Bigger body. Nice oaky, woody aroma. Dark fruit. Some raisin, vinous notes, plum. Moderate bitter, light sweet. Again, alcohol is pretty well-hidden. Less warmth detected here, even, maybe more sweetness than the base, though. Very smooth barleywine, but I don’t think it’s any better or worse than the original version. More sweet grapey dark fruit, less earthy hop bitterness, less alcohol warmth. Both very good, tasty, and easy-drinking, but in very different ways.

TaktikMTL (6311) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Bouteille verte de 375 ml obtenue via Importations Privées Bièropholie. Arôme: Odeur de caramel fruité. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée opaque avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel avec une pointe de fruité et d’alcool. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement vineuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel en arrière goût. (Rating #5198)

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours cloudy brown with a light, khaki head. Immediate aroma of honey, toffee, dried apricots and muscatel. Flavour is thick - honey drenched apricot, caramel and a hit of muscatel at the back of the palate on the way down. Big, rich body you’d expect from a barley wine - but this carries a bit of extra complexity from the muscatel. Grapes, a touch of cherry and the aforementioned apricot. Nice bitterness off the back. Fuck yeah.

jimhilt (2452) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Pours a two finger cream head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Almost clear brown color. Good carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Burnt sugar and some dark fruit nose and flavor is same burnt sugar, with caramel and dark fruit. High ABV is hidden. Seriously expensive at $12.99 for a 375ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Marlboro, MA.
