Barley Days is a brewery based out of Picton Ontario. Not exactly Toronto but I like to think I can keep my reach somewhat broad.
I had this brew at Dave’s. A nice bar on St Clair West. Atmosphere was fun with a leafs game on the TV.
We had a pitcher so that may affect how it tasted.
Without further ado:
Appearance: Dark and full. Rich brown. This is blatantly called a ‘dark ale’ so this isn’t exactly surprising.
Aroma: Very little. Hint of chocolate. This brew is mostly malted barley so that makes sense.
Taste: Chocolate and coffee. Sweet but not over the top. Hint of cherry.
Aftertaste: Malted barley. Very earthy. More hops but very light.
Overall: A good dark beer for the winter. I’d certainly buy it again. A pitcher is a bit much though as it’s very rich.
