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.

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.

tiong (4012) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2011
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 (6525) - 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.

Palme (3546) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2011
0.5l bottle. Have been looking forward to this moment for quite a while. Tor pours a beautiful cloudy amber reddish body with a medium sized light creamy beige and lasting head. Aroma is sweet, there’s’ notes of yeast, strong caramel, apples, a little bit of alcohol,notes of something that actually reminds me of candle wax, sweet plums and nuts. Really almost intoxicating aroma.. Relatively rich and full-bodied, average to soft carbonation and has a oily to sticky mouthfeeling. Tastes quite sweet and alcoholish. Also lots of caramel, some notes of raisin, malts and more alcohol. Hopy and bitter finish with a really warming sensation in the aftertaste! Found this a bit to unbalanced and actually not as epic and great as I had hoped for. Still, good as a slow sipper, quite heavy and a absolutely decent barley wine from the great Norwegian Brewery Ægir!
