COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

nimbleprop (5226) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 25, 2014
50cl bottle via Winter Secret Santa 2014. Pours a translucent, mahogany amber with a thin ring of white head. Nose is so spot on, candy, malt, chestnut honey, brandy, sherry, toffee, orange, spruce, juniper. Flavor follows right along, honey comb, toffee, orange, spruce, marzipan, candy, mild booze, some grappa. Finishes with some sweetness and some booziness but super smooth and SCARY easy to drink, even at 13%.

pentaz (1244) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a diminishing tan head. Aroma is raisins, roasted malt, dark fruit, caramel, booze, herbs and ripe fruit. Taste is moderate+ bitter and near moderate sweet. Full body and sticky. Finishes with a firm bitterness and burn. I’d prefer less bitterness.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Smells of soy and barley wine. The taste is dominated by alcohol, with hints of soy, brussels sprouts and some liquorice. Vinous mouth feel, sticky like red wine. The aftertaste is very alcohol-intensive with a sour hint of soy. Beer for big boys and alcoholics.

StilleStorm (899) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2014
DWS; Pours grumsy dark brown with loads of chunky sediments and no head. Aroma is way too boozy for my liking. Loads of dark and dried fruits suits me better. Taste is heavy sweet fruity and moderate bitter, sweetness mostly lasting. Body is full, texture is creamy, carbonation is flat to soft.
