Taster at the source. Four beers into an 8 beer flight and the best thing on my flight board so far is the oyster crackers. Aroma is caramel, Robotussin. Starts watery and sugary sweet, then finishes with straight up bitter. I hope it gets better from here.

Chalumeaux (1133) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Taster at the source pours amber with an off white head. Aromas of fruit malt caramel and light florals. Taste is sweet with carmel notes and a slightly bitter finish.

Drake (12487) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2015
New England Bucket List Trip Beer #106. Keg at the brewery. Pours a clear copper with a thin creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel, toffee, mild toasted malt, floral notes. The taste is dry toffee, herbal hops.

malrubius (2655) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle from Lisais. Amber with ring and lace. Mild aroma of woody hops and caramel brown sugar and fruitcake. Burnt caramel and and some tangy fruity sweetness with medium bitter woody and herbal bitterness. Fairly dry (a little cold). Medium body. Not a bad beer, but I wouldnt call it a barley wine. Definitely a better IPA than Long Trails new Sick Day. Very good, but points off for style because if people came looking for a barley wine, I would not really recommend this one.

60minuteman (1380) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Thinner body for the style. Mainly malt and earth complexion. Some dark fruits. I can barely pick out the barley and chocolate, its coming across as dirt to me. The taste tapers away leaving a malty residue. Inoffensive but uninspiring as well.

ScipioA (405) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours a deep maroon with a small team head. Smells like veggies, also some grass and alcohol. Better flavors, intensely malty but with a distracting stale hoppiness. Some welcome roast notes, especially in the aftertaste. Thick and smooth, just doesnt smell or taste right.

lesifflebiere (1722) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
Un vin dorge mince, aux couleurs plutt ples, avec un ptillement presque frtillant ; en nez, ce sont de petits fruits rouges, ainsi quun peu dalcool (malgr son taux assez bas), Les saveurs sont justes, quoiquun peu retenues, timides. Dans son style, elle est en entre de gamme, un vin dorge de dbutant en quelque sorte. Agrable, mais loin dtre marquant.

More like a brown ale. Lots of caramel in the aroma and flavor. Very lively carbonation. Not much of a barley wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
