8/15/2011: Port Townsend Barleywine... Malty and rich; a bit underattenuated, but I prefer barleywine that way.
Draught at Port Townsend Brewing Company in Port Townsend, WA. Rating #121 for this beer.
Amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of brown sugar and toffee. Taste is the same. Quevillon (3155) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
Drank from a bottle at the 20th Mondial de la Bière, June 1, 2013. Dark amber, no head. Light aroma of barley sugar, hints of herbs. Herbs dry taste and a little spicy, a little malted barley, dry bitterness. Strong but not the intensity of its style! czar (9332) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013

Bière brumeuse teintée de cuivre. Le nez est sucré et typiquement «vin d’orge», disons-le. En bouche, le brunch sucré nous en met plein les papilles. J’aurais aimé adorer, mais ça manque un peu de subtilité.
