SlovakSniper (3032) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
Une bière ouverte par ma femme qui croyait déboucher autre chose. Enfin, ce n’est pas grave. Donc, une bouteille qui date de 2012 et meilleure avant février 2015. Un beau corps ambré avec une mousse beige qui surprend. Quelques traces collées sur nos deux verres. Dans nos nez, des arômes de fruits secs, de sucre brun, d’épices chaudes et de malts bien roux. Dans nos bouches, des céréales douces bien fruitées, un aspect boisé, des épices et des pommes caramélisées macérées dans un alcool de qualité. Les impressions aux palais demeurent les mêmes avec un corps de moyenne densité et un pétillement assez actif. Nous nous entendons aussi pour dire que la texture est liquoreuse. En finale, les fruits et l’alcool apportent une amertume dans la gestuelle maltée.

seynie (137) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2014
Brown amber hazy pour, foamy top sites nog last long. Dark malt, Brown sugar and caramel mixed with plums and ripe red fruit, a bit of cough drop and hops. Full body and long finish in which the fruity sweetness dominates and the alcohol rears its head.

aleigator (180) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2014
Hazelnut brown color, with a fizzy, soon vanishing small head. Aromas rely pretty much on toffee, honey, sweet malts, plums, walnuts and hints of stinging alcohol. Taste begins with earthy malts, and wood, while malts soon turn sweeter into a toffeeish, molasse direction, along with chocolate and cane sugar - very sweet overall. Beer keeps it balance due to wooden notes and warming, slightly aggressive alcohol, which adds a lot of depth to the sweetness. Alcohol gets very recognizable in the finish, bitter notes on the palate among the overall sweetness. Lacks still balance, at first this is just too sweet, then alcohol becomes too present on its own, also this beer isn’t very diversified.

Lele (87) - ITALY - JUN 23, 2014
Ottimo esempio di barley wine. Il corpo è strutturato e in bocca si percepiscono chiaramente decise note di frutta secca, cioccolato e marzapane, ma soprattutto note vinose. Da non perdere!

Calisky (513) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUN 19, 2014
Couleur rouge ambrée trouble, très légère mousse qui disparait. Nez de vieux fruits sucrés (vieilles fraises) et alcool. Gout doux de levures, vieux fruits, fruits secs, note de caramel. Fin rapide. Bière particulière, mais pas mal!

Beachmaster (95) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Poured from a 350ml bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a clear reddish brown, with a moderate khaki head that quickly dissipates, leaving a disc on the surface. Nose is caramel and dark malt, with a hint of Belgian yeast banana and clove notes. Taste is malt forward, with many different layers. Thick, creamy mouth feel, with a long finish. Just a slight touch of hops on the finish. Delicious. An outstanding quad, but not surprising coming from La Trappe.

MadRobin (1848) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Poured from 330 ml bottle at Quarry House Tavern in Silver Spring, MD. Hazy, rusty orange with a small, khaki head and fair lacing. Aroma of yeast, dark fruit (especially raisins and plums), booze, brown sugar and caramel. Taste of caramel, raisins, figs, booze, plums, yeast and brown sugar. Medium/light body and high/medium carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ABT_S54 (124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2014
33cl bottle poured in a Trappist glass. Pours dark brown with a thin white head which quickly dissipates. Taste is extremely sweet - caramel, bready, toffee much like Bush Noel mixed with Bombs and Grenades. Overall a good barley wine but a little flat and one dimensional. Some more depth to back the sweet notes would be nice.
