Då Tor kom køyrande over himmelen med bukkane sine, skalv både jord og fjell, og med kvart hammarkast sprang det lyn ned mot verda. På same måte kjem denne kraftige versjonen av Amerikansk Barleywine, med smakar som minner om tørka frukt og eple. Passar til kraftige oster, og til å dele med gode venner.

ABS (918) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2016
0,33 L bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Clear, deep amber colour. Close to non-existent, slighly orange head. Apple, alcohol, candy sugar nose. Apple and pear flavour. Fruit. Herbs. Honey. Thick body, sticky and oily. Flat carbonation. Very sweet, with quite a lot of subdued bitterness as well. Brown sugar. Some banana. Medicinal bitterness, in addition to the herbs. Warming. I liked this one a lot.

piwnepodroze (406) - POLAND - SEP 15, 2016
Nieprzejrzyście brązowy płyn mieni się bursztynowymi refleksami. Aromat jest potężny jak ramię Thora. Prężą się w nim karmel, kandyzowane owoce, brązowy cukier, pieczone jabłka i nuty alkoholu. To pierwsze odczucia. Samo piwo jest gęste i lepkie jak łapy Lokiego. Jak przystało na barleywine’a mocno rozgrzewa, ale sam alkohol nie gryzie i nie drapie. W smaku przede wszystkim syrop owocowy, landrynki, winogrona i rodzynki, orzechy i śliwki. Piwo ma bardzo winny charakter - taki słodko-gorzki

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2016
Small sample from 2010 vintage - Amazingly complex with tons of sherry, port. Huuuuge malts, caramel, complex breadcrust. Very bitter finish, but it’s good! Slight alcohol-burn as to be expected from 13,2%.

Beertobealive (510) - Courbevoie, FRANCE - MAY 31, 2016
Pours a beige to brown head with warm alcohol and strong malts with soya as well. Amber colored body. Thick in mouth. Could match with sweet and sour asiatic food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ALLOVATE (2912) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2016
Big thanks to bergstaden for getting this one across to me. Everything about this ale just worked so well I wish I had the luck of cellaring a few more.
At cellar temperature and into a tulip. A solid yeast pack holds on the pour. The body of beer a shimmering, deep, ruddy copper. Head is hardy; holding for much of the length a mere half centimetre of pine coloured cream. The legs as you swirl the glass are incredible. Treacly, sweet, golden syrup and caramel on the nose atop hints of peach and apricot, orange blossom, sherbet and boozy sherry. Big body, meaty and viscous with a light spritz of carbonation up front and a lengthy rough malt, burnt sugar and sherry warmth to the finish. Plenty of pale stonefruit and caramelised, sharp and savoury fruit mince coming through. It has a lengthy sweetness that compliments the bitter fruit and chunky malts. Light earthiness and hint of new oak settles in. With all that’s going on it works harmoniously together. For 13.2% ABV it drinks of a barley wine of moderate strength. Delectable yet not overly complex - it has mellowed in the past few years. It just works. A lovely barley wine! (50cL, 2012 vintage)

fiulijn (19387) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2016
Tasting at Ferris’, vintage 2012, ~4 years old
Cloudy dark amber color, cloudy. The aroma is very corky, the flavor is malty, sweet, for a good body, but overall it’s not aging too well. Warm, alcoholic final.
Nice but old.

2012 vintage. Dark brown with a light beige head. Aroma is dark fruits, soy sauce, hint of sherry, light oxidation. Medium bodied, lightly sticky mouthfeel, sweet on the palate with a hint of spice on the backend. Taste is caramel, soy sauce, sherry, spice, citrus zest. Mmm.

Bottle - Vintage 2012 - Light oxidization, sweet, touch of minty notes and caramel. Hazy brown with a light beige head. Light oxidization, some herbal notes, caramel and a long finish. A bit oxidized but nice.
