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.

Dedollewaitor (13925) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2011
Thanks to ClubGonzo. Bottle @ Odense Tasting, June 2011. Pours cloudy orange with a creamy white head and lacings. Nose is fruit, caramel and toffee. Quite vinous with a note of fruity orange. Smooth and full bodied. Warmth. A sipper and a fine example of the style.

Smaskifa (123) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2011
Pours small white head, but disappears quickly. Appealing rustique colour. Aroma of caramel and alcohol. Very high alcohol level. Tastes very sweet, caramel and brown sugar. Not very bitter. Quite powerful but balanced taste of alcohol. Low carbonation. Round palate, tasteful. Impressive beer!

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2011
[500ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Opaque reddish brown pour, thin lacing only around the edge of the glass. Positively crunching nose of rich, syrupy figs and raisins, booze and spices. Rich and boozy on the palate, with caramel and toffee giving way to a strong alcohol finish. Good, almost meaty barley wine [08052011]

Bottled 500ml (BB 05/2014)
Deep amber color, small beige head. Strong ryeish, caramelly aroma. Full-bodied. Caramelly, licorice, raisins, portwine, loads of alcohol. Soft palate. Quite alcoholic. Needs lots of time.

mjs (4622) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 9, 2011
(Bottle, 0.5 l - BBE 12.05.14, courtesy of Rune, thanks) The beer poured reddish brown and hazy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had malts, alcohol, sweetness and plum soup. Palate was full bodied, warming and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were lot of malts malts, mildly alcohol, hops, raisin, vineousness and mildly bitterness. Too alcoholic and perhaps too young. I hope to have a chance to try an aged sample at some point.

Quick review; Unclear with a big foam. Sweet fruityness, raisins, plums. Rich mouthfeel, sweet and very fruity (not very dried). Present alcohol, almost to much, but it´s okey. Medium bitternes
