    Pours translucent mahogany with a fairly thick beige head. Aroma features boozy, caramel and roast malt notes - definitely more barleywine than IPA. Flavor presents bitter woody (OK, there are the hops!), boozy, toasted malt and caramel tones. Texture has OK body but peppy fizz. Barleywine? Double (or triple) IPA? Or the love child of the two styles? You decide.

    Deep dark brown body with a ridiculously long lasting fluffy cap. Love the aroma....... Heavy, ginger, oranges, resin, big molasses, so much smell is good smell. Taste is epically the same goodness as the good stink. Taste is big but some how remains easy to drink. Resin, pine, ginger..... My burp just tasted like orange zest. Molasses flirting with the idea of tasting like soya sauce. Wow for 10% this is hitting me hard. So much orange that finishes bitterly sweet. I love this beer style there aint nothing better.

    Another great treat from Norway, imported by an Ontario company (keep 'em coming) at the LCBO. Pours a beautiful ruby-amber colour with a big frothy beige head that stays long and gives out thick patchy lacing. Tiny particles floats away. Kind of a mild soapy hop aroma with some soft yeast, dark fruits (prunes, plums), alcohol and light chocolate. Silky smooth mouthfeel, medium-full bodied. Starts off with the dark fruits, then a nice bitterness kicks in to finally show some caramel and maple syrup. All with the hop lingering in the back (grapefruit notes). A really nice cross between an Imperial IPA and Barleywine.

    Bottle: puts a dark drown clouded ale in the glass, modest cap, good lacing. aroma is pungent citrus, toffee,licorice,vanilla. Flavor is all hops over malts with big juicy hop bite in front and malt aupport in the background, hasn't much time to build complexity goes to a long bitter finish. Nice but needs time. Cellar a few.

    Beer pours a solid orangy-brown colour with a thin tan ring. Aroma is citrusy hops, pine, caramel, grains, and spices. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with medium carbination. Flavour is butterscotch, caramel, anmd grapefruity hops. Nicely balanced.

    This poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma contains alcohol, coffee, nutmeg, citrus, and dark fruit. The flavor is big and malty and contains some molasses, cherries, raisins, and some citrus. Overall this seems more like a barleywine but whatever it is, it’s a nice beer.

    Pours a frosty brown, loads of sediment. Light and low tan head. Aroma is faint. Mouthfeel is dark fruit. Flavor is dark fruit and smoke (although i admit we are smoking cigars and that's not helping the palate).

    This Nogne O pours a deep brown with reddish tints. A big creamy off white head rises above and stays around for a decent amount of time. Settling eventually into a nice cap above the body. A lot of fruit in the aroma. Sweet, tart hints of dark fruits with subtle coffee in a caramel bath. Very thick and creamy. Balanced carbontion is present. Complex ale with sweet caramel, bitter coffee tart fruits and pine hops. Another home run from Nogne.

    So this is brewed to be an Imperial IPA but inaccurately labeled a barleywine? One one hand it tastes like a mix of the two and on the other hand it tastes like neither. Pours a deep amber-brown color with a real thick long-lasting tan head. Some nice lacing left on the glass. Spices jump out in the aroma, interesting, with wet leaves, toffee and pine. There’s definitely a strong hop profile here, it’s interesting though, I guess I’ll call it resiny and piney with just a little bitterness to compliment the malt, until the finish where there’s a sharp bite. Sweet caramel and toffee balance the hops nicely. I also keep picking up an assortment of spices in the flavor, juniper, ginger, perhaps even cinnamon. There’s a note or two of chocolate but it stays in the background. A very interesting beer and one that I enjoyed a lot. Complex, different but very good, and really rather easy drinking for 10%.
