MartinT (9653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2011
My Bottom Line:
Lingering honeyed sweetness tags along this burning Barley Wine’s peppery hop resins, sometimes turning into sucre d’orge allusions.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the cloudy orange.
-There is no sign of oxidation in this one (’09 vintage) yet.
-The mouthfeel is slick and velvety.
-Oranges levitate from the hops in the flavor profile.
-Alcohol’s too sharp for my liking.

On tap at Beveridge Place Pub.

On tap at Bailey’s Taproom Third Anniversary Barrel Aged Fest. Pours out a amber with red highlights topped with a sand head. Aroma was of sweet caramel, hops, vanilla, and some wood. Taste was just as the aroma with a nice amount of vanilla, and sweetness.

Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom’s Third Anniversary Barrel Aged Fest... Was labelled as being Bourbon Barrel Aged. Poured dark orange with an off-white head. Vanilla, a lot of hop notes, fizzy, malty, leafy, cracker-like, grassy, vanilla cream, citrus, nutmeg. A lot going on. It did have a bit of soapy undertone though.

On tap at OBF, dark reddish brown with a highly hoppy aroma. Flavor is bitter hops and competing oddly sweet flavor. Bad finish that made me make a face.

riversideAK (6259) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Barrely nose, hints of wood, alcohol and light tart. Hop notes are present lightly as well. Pours golden amber with some haze, foam on top and light lace. Barrely tangy tartness, wood, earth, alcohol, and light woody funky tartness lingering. Some bittering hops are resiny and earthy in the finish, but where is the base beer? Yes hello? Base beer? I guess there is a light sweetness. Lingering earthy tartness.

1/29/10 at Pillagers Pub. Aroma is perfumy and alcoholic with notes of heather, cinnamon and lavender. Appearance is clear copper with just a touch of off-white head. Flavor is more fresh and dried fruit and malt with peach, apricot and a lightly tart strawberry finish. Mouthfeel is medium-high bodied, never syrupy, and always warming. This is a rich fruity brew that has an amazing twist on the barleywine conventions, favoring light fruits over the classic dark plum and raisin characteristics that prevail in so many.
