hanniku (13) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2009 Draught at the brewpub. Dark brown color. Small vanishing beige head. Abundant sweetish aroma with the strong tones of wine, raisins, vanilla, bourbon, wood, caramel and fruityness. A rich and intense flavor follows much the aroma. The warming notes of alcohol are modestly present both in aroma and in flavor. Long sweetish aftertaste. An enjoyable and complex barrel-aged Barley Wine, merci beaucoup Marc!

En ft au Broadway. La bire ou je devrais dire llixir se prsente avec une couleur brune trs fone ainsi quun col de mousse crmeux, imposant et trs durable. Au nez cest le caramel fon qui sexprime en premier, ensuite on dnote des tons de chne, de vanille et de fruit noir. Pour finir lalcool enrobe le tout. En bouche le corps est rond avec une effervescence faible et crmeuse. Au dpart on gote des saveurs de sucre brun, vient ensuite une bonne prsence de chne et de vanille et pour terminer lalcool et le caramel fon sexprime longtemps en talement. Le 10.5% dalcool est bien camoufl Dbil et Complexe!!!

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2009
Murky brown in colour with a thin beige head, light lacing. The aroma is lightly hopped, sweet with noticable alcohol, woody with some sweetness. The flavour is a bit watery and thin, high amounts of alcohol, some hops and a caramel sweetness. Bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. The finishes is the weirdest part of this beer, some hops but total alcohol domination.

A very light bodied barley wine. Syrupy, lack of balance and tons of alcohol.

Draught at Mondial 2008, Montreal, Quebec.
Sampled on May 30, 2008.

Verre de 12 oz, au Vices et Versa. Armes trs fruits (raisins secs, cerises noires) et lgrement boiss. Robe brune et trouble, faible mousse. Trs ronde en bouche, le malt caramel et fruit (raisins, pruneaux et cerises) mne une finale alcoolise. Lgre touche amre en finale. Trs intense, les saveurs fruites gagneraient tre plus quilibres.

Lubiere (13656) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2008
A deep dark clear brown ale with a thin off white head. A superb oaken aroma, vinous aroma and wild yeasts. In mouth, a smooth and complex barley wine, with light caramel, vanilla, wood, Brett. rich and complex. Wow! Tasted at Mondiale 2008, June 1 2008.

Pours a murky brown color with a medium, light brown head. Pleasant aroma of oak, vanilla and caramel, there’s not much of a hops presence. Very good flavor of vanilla, oak, carame, it’s malty all the way through. The body is light to medium with a liquorous texture and soft carbonation. For a first experiment with barrel aging, I think it’s a definite success.

mabel (9160) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2008
[1405-20080530] Tap. Sugary vanilla aroma is very sweet and strong and has noticeable wood notes. Hazy, dark brown body with a small quick light tan head. Sweet vanilla pineapple flavour has lots of woodiness and something like coconut. Medium-full body. Lots of woodiness distracts from the sweetness, but still very boozy.
(5T @ Mondial; Montreal, QC)
