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.

RuneStumo (2242) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2010
17.10.2010, 0,5l Bottle. This is my beer rating number 700! Dark brown colour with a thin tan head. Aroma is strong malty, its sweet, this beer really haa a rich body. This beer really has a lot of everything. Im not sure if Barley wine is my kind of beer, but I can tell that this is a tastefull quality beer. The sweetness is very vell balanced with the alcohol, this is a strong beer. But it is the malty sweetness that gives this beer its taste.

KM (351) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2010
Bottle. Medium brown muddy body. No head. Very heavy sweet malty aroma. Licorice, dried fruit, a little chocolate. Heavy, heavy sweet flavour. Much like the aroma, with a not pleasant bitter finish. A little too much of everything here. (Skarven, Tromsø, 27.03.2010)

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2010
Bottle. It’s a hazy copper-colored beer topped by a dark beige head. A real melange of aromas greet you welcome, generic dried fruits, rum-raisins, oxidation, caramel, some wort, citrus peel, some resin, cedar and nuts are all well integrated, but it’s some percent too strong to be really enjoyable. At least the alcohol is too evident. Still, it smells lovely. It’s full-bodied, oily and almost sticky, just like a fine mead, but the flavors are more diverse. A bit more hoppy flavors would have been fine, but I guess that’s hard to accomplish in a beer needing cellaring to mellow. At least there’s a decent amount of bitterness to deal with the sweetness. A bit too warm in the mouth, and it lasts for a while as well. I guess I’ll have to buy a few more to lay down in the cellar, it’s much smoother now than when I first tasted it in May 2009, but it will probably smoothen even more. Looking forward to it. 100805

Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yngwie. Pours a cloudy reddish amber with an off-white head. Intensely hoppy aroma, nuts and overripe fruit. Very solid body, loads of caramel and overripe fruit with a slightly messy hoppiness - but there’s loads of it. Herbal hoppy finish with a massive alcohol burn. 090710
