Draught at the brewpubLubiere (14126) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2006
Dark amber colour. Big sugary-fruity and slighly chewy malty aroma. The flavour is of brown sugar and light bubblegum, with indistinct fruitiness. Somewhat sticky palate. Doesn’t show much alcohol, even in the finish.
Reddish amber ale with a thin white head. Yummy orange caramel in aroma, good hops, vinous character, and warming alcohol. In mouth, a more restrained BW with rich malt, not too sweet, nutty notes, and very sharp hops. Rather short in mouth, no alcohol notes. Russian River Beer Revival & Barbecue Cook-Off, August 20, 2005. jazz88 (2683) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Tap @ 2004 Toronado Barley Wine Festival. Dark amber color. Strong alcohol aroma. Sweet flavors and aroma but not as robust as many of the barley wines. A strong bitter hope bite at the finish.
