pumpkinhead2 (915) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2015
Bire brune-rouge aux reflets oranges, peu voile, bonne effervescence, et surmonte dune riche mousse trs dense et crmeuse, collante et persistante. Armes bien malts de ptisserie et rglisse rouge, lger sucre dorge, lger pain grill, grains rtis, subtil caramel, fruits rouges (baies, cerise, framboise), levure pteuse Effluves un peu plus frais et lgrement acides derrire ce malt, herbes, gazon, agrumes (citron et orange), bois Nez intressant, trs belle complexit, intensit moyenne. En bouche, ptillement plutt faible sur la langue, breuvage plutt mousseux, rondeur fort intressante au palais, cest moelleux et velout. Au got, pain lgrement grill et ptisserie, beaucoup de fruits rouges en bouche (baies, cerise, framboise), rglisse rouge, sucre dorge. Le got caramlis est plus en retrait, a fait beaucoup plus sucre rouge en bouche, et on retrouve les notes dherbe, de gazon et dagrumes prcdemment humes, avec une trame de fond quelque peu boise. Lalcool fait sentir sa prsence, mais cest trs bien intgr. La finale napporte quune lgre amertume, ce sont surtout des saveurs alcoolises et boises qui nous restent en fin de bouche. Trs bonne intgration des diffrentes saveurs entre elles, complexit en bouche fort intressante, intensit gnrale du breuvage bien adquate, mais il me semble que pour un vin dorge, a aurait pu tre un peu mieux sur ce dernier point. Trs bonne bire!

HippyHop (625) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2015
Pour is a beautiful burnt orange with a khaki cap that sticks around and leaves some mild lacing. Nose is burnt sugar, caramel, honey, candied fruit. Taste is even fruitier than the nose, which works (for me). Its sweet, but with a nice bitterness on the finish. Alcohol is barely noticeable, especially for 9%. Really surprised at how drinkable this is.

Beardbeerman (341) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
750ml cork bottle poured in my usual snifter around 12 degrees. Pours a liquorish dark brown robe letting loose a semi firm hazel head showing moderate retention. The head leaves nice lacing spots and turns creamy upon setting down. The nose is dominated by malts and alcohol and shows a certain sweetness. The bouquets intensity isnt so intense that you are overwhelmed so for that, I gave it a better score. On the tongue, youre hit with the alcohol at first which quickly gives room to the sweet malts. The attack is quick and soon youre left with a moderate bitterness pairing up nicely with the remains of the round body of the brew. Overall I liked this brew. Im far from being a reference when it comes to barleywine so Ill simply say that it was a good.

matbigrey (117) - Mascouche, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2014
750ml Bottle. very dark brown reddish color. has an average head well sustained. sweet malts odor followed by apricot and melted sugars. taste is a bit hoppy (more than expected)and a bit resinous. The alcohol is very present, but the caramel malts are dominent in this one. followed by a rosted flavor and a dry bittersweet finish. Not perfect by any means but still a good mention in the realm of Barley wines

maximet (164) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Orange ruby with a thick brownish foam. Strong scottish caramel, alcohol and a little nuts side. Taste is very sweet, strong caramel. A lively carbonation with a slick texture, finish is long and a little bitter/sweet. Too much on the scottish caramel side.

wolffish (652) - Saint-Donat, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
a sent les fruits cuits (prune et orange entre autres) et cest fort bien houblonn. Il y a un arrire-got un peu dplaisant...

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Une bire brune brouille, leffervescence faible, et aux armes puissamment fruits (prunes, raisins) et sucrs (sucre cuit). La bouche est plus amre que prvue, mais les malts dominent facilement, le tout donnant limpression dun sucre dorge liquide dont la finale est vaguement boise. Les notes joues sont justes, mais on se demande si un petit peaufinement (autres houblons peut-tre, ou un ensemble un brin moins sucr) naiderait pas ce dlice devenir un nectar des dieux. En attendant, cest un vin dorge fort respectable mais imparfait.

Gluepot (611) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
Found a bottle dated September 2012, which is a great date if you follow the history of this beer. Toffee, butterscotch, soft and roasted malt, some nuts and enough hops to create some counterbalance to the dark sweetness. Over the last year the brewery has introduced some confusing Belgian yeasts into this and some other of their higher octane Imperial IPAs, Barleywines, and nut brown ales. Im not telling you what store in the Ottawa/Gatineau area I got this from. I am going back to buy out their stock!
