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.

Cloudy, orange-ish brown color, a malty, sweet, flowery bouquet and taste. Intensely sweet, andno hint of alcohol at all. Dangerous, had it not been so filling. Recommended.

If you want the definition of a Barley Wine you got to try this one. Little white head, dark brown and redish color. It tastes like very strong caramel combined with dried fruits. Maybe apricot, mango and dates. I can not taste the alcohol in this one, and it’s so easy to drink that it scares me ( if you think of the 13,2% ABV. ) Very nice barley wine.

Foffern (1225) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle shared with Veitafan at Flåmsbrygga. The colour is deep brownish orange and is hazy with a small beige coffee-like head. Sweet malt in the nose along with liqueur, cognac, alcohol, dark syrup and some rowanberries. The flavour is very compact with a composition of the same and feels pretty sweet with a touch of alcohol. Has a soft and rich mouthfeel. A great barley wine, nice and balanced. Good for cellaring.

Tasted from the bottle bon 13/11/2012, bought @Vika vinmonopolet, Oslo Aroma is quite intense, all sorts of classic barley-wine notes, but with such a pleasant, elegant nuances on top. Taste is immensely overwhelming, very intense and complex. Just the only slight downside is a hint of alcohol in the end. Recommended+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
