DrnkMcDermott's rating

DrnkMcDermott (3025) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Sample at Standard Market. Amber IPA color, but clearer. Thin head in a ring around the edge. My taste was too small in the tiny glass to get much of a sniff. Taste is not as hoppy as, say, Bigfoot, Focused more on the crystal roast malts, which let the alcohol come in and warm me up.

Style et résumé: Barley wine de mauvaise qualité.
Comment: EBF 2016.
Portrait: Une robe dorée avec une mousse blanche. Rien de plus à dire que ce que mes collègues dégustateurs qui n’ont pas apprécié cette concoction sucrée à souhait qui à tout pour déplaire. Incapable de boire à trois une portion de dégustation.
Note: 5/10

EBF 2016. Pours a clear strong golden with a medium bubbly white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of caramel, slight alcohol but not too much. Taste is sugary, barleywine-ish and not too boozy. Mostly caramel. Medium body, medium carbonation and again not too boozy. I thought it was good (starting to doubt myself, though, seeing the other ratings) but not a game changer, maybe I need to rerate.

Minderbinder (3340) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2016
EBF 2016. Pours golden with low off-white head. Aroma is of malts (forgettable). Taste is of very strong alcohol, malt. Palate: Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Burning alcohol. Overall: Not for me.

czar (8089) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2016
tap at EBF 2016. unclear bright golden with a nice off-white cap offering minimal retention and alcing. boozy dried fruits - golden raisins; extremely boozy - piney tingling; lots of barley sweetness and jam; pine needles, clean yeast. moderate carbonation, medium to full body - thick; boozy and cloying spicy finish. plain sugars and way too hot. blah.

SlovakSniper (5276) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Très visqueuse, caramélisée, vin malté, épicée, robe de bière de garage, j’ai une impression d’un premier brassin d’un manchot qui se lance dans le tout grain les yeux fermés. Désolé mais cette bière n’est pas bonne. Et hop, dans a chaudière!

Bottle, shared at game night. Tawny orange-amber, low light gold head. Sweet fruity toffee aroma with boozy undertones. Toffee, red licorice, candied orange, hot alcohol comes in late. I liked it, but it’s pretty boozy and sweet.

Really bready, lots of yeast and booze. Perhaps some Belgian spice. Red amber coloration. Not much head at all. This tastes a lot like whiskey. No head no carbonation. For a barley wine, I like it. Very syrupy.

Bottle. Mostly clear mahogany hue with a dense head of tan fuzz. Aroma’s very nice: toffee, raisins, maple, milk chocolate. Sugary. Bitterness balances the sugars in the flavor, which displays notes of grapefruit peel, brandy, oranges and molasses before a toasted rye finish. Silky medium-light body; soft tingly CO2.

Thanks to Joel for the bomber! Poured a lovely shade of clear, fiery orange with a sticky beige head. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and honey with accents of cinnamon and medium-skinned fruits. The flavor found similar malts at the core, picking up some tasty orange meat.. bitter fruity notes and spices around.. finished spicy with some tasty residual sugars and belly warmth. Medium-plus bodied with a good feel and flow through the palate.. spicy and engaging.. great brew!

650ml bottle. Amber pour. This smells really amateurish. Acetone and just a grimey first homebrew type aroma. Flavor is better but very bland and non descript for a barleywine. It is mostly malt forward with some vinousness, malt liquor, caramel, toasted grain, and some spice. Glad it was in the discount bin (as it should be).
