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.

Very different between samples. Caramel sometime, coconut another, the third somewhat hoppy (maybe server intoxicated and gave wrong tap for that one?) still some citrus orange. Lace and brown. Drinkability good.

2013-07-19. Crisp dark amber body with a small beige head. 3+ Aroma is sweet, notes of lightly grainy wheat and malt below a healthy amount of sweet bourbon. Flavour is pretty big up front, sweet with lots of bourbon and mild woody accents. Medium to full bodied palate, soft carbonation. Pretty nice, rich, and just a bit heavy to be drinking it in the middle of a heat wave. I had a 2nd glass later that night at Indie which had more hop character in it and more fruity notes than the glass at Bar Hop. Solid, but its a sipper for me. On tap at Bar Hop and Indie Alehouse, Toronto

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.

[5594-20130719] Tap. Light fruity wood barrel booze aroma. Clear, dark amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Sweet caramelized apple barrel flavour has a light buttered popcorn hint. Medium body. Interesting. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

Not at all bad. Pretty well-balanced and grows on me as the beer goes down. Very barrel heavy with apparent bourbon. Pours a deep red with great head and lacing. Aroma of wine, hops booze and caramel malt. Soft carbonation. Tap at barhop.

blankboy (7689) - 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!

HogTownHarry (6823) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2017
July 19, 2013 - at Bar Hop - on draught. Deep and slightly hazy amber-gold with a smallish creamy/foamy beige head. Pretty intense aroma - alcohol, bourbon, wildflowers - very malty, maybe a bit of maple. Taste ... yeah, bourbon - sweet delicate grain, not a ton of bitterness - pretty nice for a big sucker - and I pretty much loathe bourbon. Thick, astringent, increasingly boozy (sneaky!), not a ton of carbonation - plus de bourbon in the finish/aftertaste. "I guess it’s good ... but, ehhh ---- bourbon"

tkrjukoff (4335) - 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.

3.7
Spab (3834) - 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.
