Deep amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is intense. Loads of soft vanilla and oak. A bit of soft malt and some smooth earthy bitterness. Pretty lovely actually. Some light pepper as well. Alcohol well hidden in here. A contemplative sipper, this one. Lubiere (14262) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
An orange amber ale with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, beautiful vinous malt with grassy resinous hops and light doughy notes, old ale like. In mouth, a sweet smooth vinous malt with nice grassy hops, light menthol, alcohol warmth, very nice. Spab (4229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber colour with average-sized off-white head with lots of retention. Aroma is candy sugar, fruit, toffee and hints of woodiness. Brown sugar, toffee, some tree fruits and gentle oakiness in the flavour. Silky mouthfeel. Good barley wine. tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2013
Draft @ bar volo. Pours clear redish orange amber with a nice off white head. Aroma is sweet almonds marzipan floral fruity subtile and nice. Flavor is velvety grainy bitter fruity astringent refreshing in a way, so different interesting, not a sign of the 12 % ABV. Good. Itter astringent sweetish almond finish. blankboy (7884) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a deep orange-amber with a small long-lasting bubbly off-white head. Lovely aroma of grapes, other fruit, a bit of wood, hops, a hint of brown sugar and just a touch of alcohol. Delicious flavour is fruity and slightly sugary, in a good way, along with some wood and hops. Alcohol is present but fairly well hidden considering the abv. Medium bodied. Amazing, I loved it!
