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.

mjs (4277) - 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.

garza (567) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - NOV 30, 2010
Pours cloudy and muddy brown orange colour with a small tan head. Strong aroma of dry fruits, caramel and some dugh. Heavy sweetness in the taste with the presence of raisins, dry apples and spicy notes. Lightly bitter, very heavy and round flavour. the alcohol is present maybe not so much in the palate but in your head. Full body, sticky, soft carbonation and a medium sweet and light bitter after taste. Worth the try.
