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.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2012
Bottle thanks to Palme. Pours a slight cloudy, amber colored beer with a small, off white head on it. Aroma is full of caramel, sweet malts, some molasses and very ripe apples. It gets way better as it warms up. Flavour gets from a lot of alcoholic sweetness at low temperature, to full, malty aromatic sweetness with a massively cloying thick mouthfeel to it when drank at room temperature. I did finish the 0,5 liter bottle by myself and it took me well over two hours. But it were two hours well spent.

Bottle at Mumsig Miniprovning, Göteborg. Hazy amber/copper beer with a small beige head. Malty aroma, bready, vinous, fruity, grainy notes. Malty bready flavor, vinous, spicy notes, some alcohol. A bit too much alcohol, and not totally interesting.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2012 Very complex beer! Aroma of alcohol, caramel, grass and raisins. Aftertaste is caramel, and some hops. Well balanced though. Quite easy to drink, dispite the high avb. Have had this cold and in room temperature, It’s a extreme different taste, way better when it’s room temperature. Never had a beer where the difference is that present.

I knew a guy named Thir once. He would have liked this one, I think. Clear amber color. Aroma of boozy caramel. Taste is like snorting pure caramel, and a bit of spice. East to get hammered drinking half a liter of this bad boy. Best shared.

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!
