Metalchopz (3474) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy amber colour with a light beige head. Dark fruit aromas with dates, raisins and caramel, all quite rich and sweet. The taste is thankfully not as rich with the fruits and caramel. The brandy barrel add wood notes and hints of brandy. Mouthfeel is nice, mild warming. Quite a nice blend of flavours that works well with the brandy notes.

En fût au BDT, Cuvée 2009. Couleur brune, légèrement voilée, mousse mince beige. Arôme de sucre d’orge et bois. En bouche, très soyeuse, sucrée, caramel écossais, chêne, brandy, wow..un peu de madérisation qui lui donne un caractère. Une excellente offrande.

Two pints at BdT and my favourite of the day. Cloudy mahogany with a creamy tan head. Vanilla, nice brandy,lots of caramel and cooked brown sugar with a hint of yams, some nice malt undertones, decent hop presence. Full body, mild carbonation, sweet, becomes somewhat dry, delicious.

Tasted at the 2012 Winterlude Winter Beers and Wines. Beer of the night! Pours a brown and orange with a off white frothy top. Aroma is raisin, fig and barley, all with a sweet overlay of the brandy. Taste is fantastic! The great caramel and raisin complexity that I love with the regular Mea Magna but with a subtle sweetness and added depth from the brandy. It is not overpowering, it just adds another layer, just how it should be.

Boutip (6498) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2011
Draft: Poured a bright mahogany color ale with a medium foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet rich caramelized malt with light well rounded notes of vanilla. Taste is a mix between a well balanced caramel and light toffee malt base with light vanilla and rounded notes from the barrel-aging. The hops were not nearly as present as the non-barrelled version with a lot more attention directed to the malt base. Body is about average with nice creamy texture with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very different from the base beer and easily drinkable.
