PLEASE NOTE: THIS ENTRY IS FOR REGULAR NEZ DE POIVROT. TAP-ONLY. IF YOU HAD THIS BEER IN A BOTTLE, IT WAS THE BARREL-AGED VERSION. Barley Wine with maple syrup. Cette onctueuse rousse charme par sa rondeur alors que des bulles senvolent nonchalamment vers la surface pour former une mousse discrte mais persistante. Les armes dananas, de vin blanc et le lger prsage dune certaine acidit qui schappent du verre laissent difficilement prsager de la suite. En bouche, on peroit dabord une pointe damertume houblonne rapidement repousse par le ct caramel provenant dune impressionnante base de malt. La finale, longue et persistante, rappelle leau drable avec une surprenante vivacit.

Bire brune opaque, au nez poivr (bien entendu), pic mme, avec des malts bien prsents. En bouche, fruite, intense, belle amertume qui soutient le tout en arrire-plan, sur un lit dalcool qui rchauffe. Excellent vin dorge, au croisement de plusieurs versions du style. Copieux mais pas envahissant.

De couleur ambre avec un mince col rsistant. Nez intense dpices et de fruits assez complexes. En bouche cest un mme mlange persistant. Mal balanc trop sucr trop explosif mais gagne des points par sa complexit. Une exprience a goutter mais pas dans mes gots!

Winter Warmer dcembre 2013 - Bire cuivre, limpide et o flotte une fine cume phmre laissant une fine dentelle au verre. Au nez, du caramel, des fleurs, de lherbe verte et de lalcool. Moyennement amre et lgrement sucre. Elle est liquoreuse, de corps baraqu, vivement effervescente et se termine sur une longue finale aromatique.

On tap @ La Shop du Trou du Diable - Wabasso (Shawinigan). Unclear dark copper with a small quickly disappearing beige head and no lacing. Aroma is of caramel/malt, fruity notes, hops, mineral notes, spices and some alcohol. Taste is moderately sweet with a good amount of caramel malt, some fruits, light resinous notes and alcohol (not boozy though). Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Warming presence. Drinkable for a 11% abv Barley Wine. Not so complex, so I now understand why the bourbon barrel version is so "simple". Interesting.

Elle me semble rousse, rougetre et elle est garnie dune mousse compacte et persistante. a sent un peu le porto, les raisins secs, des senteurs boises et les bonbons en forme de banane. Un got de sucre dorge, de fer, de rouille et de sirop dagave, plutt que du sirop drable. Bon, on pourrait facilement sy mprendre. Lalcool est bien intgr. Jai bien aim ce vin dorge. (795-29813)

2012-12-31. Very dark amber brown body, small beige head. 4+ Sort of fruity flavour with a good amount of alcohol. Mild but rich malt character, dangerously drinkable profile for the alcohol content. 7+ Sort of fruity, vaguely vanilla like notes in the aroma over malt. 7+ Very smooth medium bodied palate. Fairly subtle, but quite nice. The alcohol grows very slowly as you move through the glass, interesting subtle fruity character throughout Find the right balance, pretty enjoyable. Bottle at Volo, Toronto

In short: A big amber ale with a refreshing fruitiness (apples, pineapples). Good stuff
How: Cask at Siboire, herbrooke QC + tap at Vices & Versa, Montreal
The look: Cloudy amber body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose is fruity, some alcohol fumes, a tiny bit spicy. Taste is very fruity and the refreshing fruit flavors (apples and pineapples mainly) are rather unusual for a so-called barley wine. I even noted some bananas. There was also honey, some woody notes and some spicy notes. Supposedly uses maple syrup but I didnt pick any, which is a good thing. Overall it reminded me of some lighter color American wheat-wines that manage to be refreshing despite their size. Dangerously drinkable for a 10%+ beer. Barley-wine? If you say so, whatever it is, I liked it. That beer event at Siboire was yet another night where I had too much to drink. I used to hate that I always made a fool out of myself when I was drunk. But things have changed. Now I also hate that I always make a fool out of myself when Im not drunk. Basically now, I just hate myself.
