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.

Bottle at Grunnerloka. Clear amber beer. Big head - very pale tan. Smooth dry palate. Sweet malt - quite an intense caramel. Some hop, well buried. Inevitably some alcohol aniseed and warmth but generally copes with it’s high abv. Some slightly burned toffee in the head. Drinkable big ol’ barleywine!

str023 (123) - Stokmarknes, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2012
From bestillingsutvalget at Vinmonopolet. Pours a hazy amber color body in the glass with a thin off white head. Sweet and fruty smell of brown sugar, orange and port. Quite alcoholic on the nose. Delicious taste of brown sugar, clementines/orange, hops and creamy caramel. The alcohol is well integrated in the taste and the overall impression of this "barleywine" is very impressive indeed!

50 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu, BBE 13.09.2020
Sweetish aroma is very typical to barley wine with oaky notes, raisins, some sugar and fruitiness. Flavour is very sweet with sugar and some exotic fruits from the hops. Alcohol in the finish that almost disturbs. Could improve with age.

50 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu, BBE 13.09.2020
Didn’t improve. Grainy and boozy aroma. Grain and alcohol also in the flavour; also some caramel and toffee. Harsh score estimate: 3.5.

500ml bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki

Pours dark orange with a small foamy white head. Aroma has notes of alcohol, fruits, berries and spices. Taste is quite fruity and malty with notes of spices and berries. Finish is quite strong and slightly bitter. Alcohol warms and burns through a bit too much. Okay barley wine.

lusikka (5341) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2011
500 ml bottle. BBE 13.9.2020.
Pours a hazy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, sweet berries and some herbs. Flavour of caramel malts, sweet berries, herbs and quite bitter hops. Medium bodied, quite sticky mouthfeel and a long, warming, alcohol finish with some berries. A bit too aggressive but hopefully this gets more balanced after couple of years of aging.
