Thanks cfrancis for the bottle. Pours out a crystal clear deep amber with a small tan head and slippery lacing. Excellent colour. Scents of sweet caramel, sweet citrus, peaches, mild apple, sugar. Smells rich and is nicer when warmed up a bit. Mmmm.. tasty caramel and lots of fruit. Very good sweetness, mild pine, thick and syrupy, resin, nice bitterness. Pretty straight forward yet tasty. It also has been a while since Ive had a good barley wine. No alcohol distraction. Full bodied and syrupy, hidden bitterness and a really nice finish.

Le liquide a une robe cuivre. Sa tte est petite et fugace. Au nez, les houblons sont prsents avec des effluves convaincants de fruits et de fleurs. Quant au malt, il est riche et rappelle le caramel et le sucre dorge. Lalcool qui monte au nez dgage un parfum floral. force dy plonger les narines, la prsence fruite se complexifie davantage : les fruits sont macrs et gorgs de sucre. Au got, les saveurs des grains malts sont aussi intenses avec ce mme retour de douceur fuite. travers lalcool qui chatouille la langue, les houblons sont goteux et donnent une amertume qui change selon lhumeur de mes papilles : parfois faible et parfois modre. En bouche, le liquide possde une rondeur approprie pour le style avec sa texture veloute et sa douce agitation. En finale, les saveurs florales de lalcool et les notes amres des houblons cherchent vritablement saccrocher derrire la langue.

341 ml bottle, 4,29$ at Peluso; 5$ for half a bottle at Chambly fest (where I got a little too drunk to remember I hadnt like it, so I bought it again). Pretty extreme barley wine, thick, almost sirupy. Boozy almost headacheful aroma. A lot of alchool (too much, I think) causing the nevertheless powerful 450 hp citrusy hoppiness to be too shattered. Some fruity and (displeasing) acrid notes. Very american-like BW, which I usually dont like much... Well done in the style.

JulienHuxley (5701) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2010
Bottle, 12% on the label. Crystal clear copper colored pour with lots of frothy white head, good lacing. Aroma of sweet barley candy, toffee and a hint of minty, fruitiness. Taste is sweet, strong alcohol taste, candied fruits and toffee. Palate is a bit slick but has some good carbonation considering the age and ABV. Good stuff.

Boutip (6130) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2010
Draft through the Randall: Poured a medium amber color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention. Aroma is totally dominated by huge floral notes with definitive resin notes. Taste is also a super nice mix between light caramel malt and toffee which are completely overshadowed by loads of floral and resinous notes which are quite exquisite. Body is about average with good carbonation and unsurprisingly totally dominated by hops. Very well done and a very nice discovery overall.
