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.

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!

Big thanks to bergstaden for getting this one across to me. Everything about this ale just worked so well I wish I had the luck of cellaring a few more.
At cellar temperature and into a tulip. A solid yeast pack holds on the pour. The body of beer a shimmering, deep, ruddy copper. Head is hardy; holding for much of the length a mere half centimetre of pine coloured cream. The legs as you swirl the glass are incredible. Treacly, sweet, golden syrup and caramel on the nose atop hints of peach and apricot, orange blossom, sherbet and boozy sherry. Big body, meaty and viscous with a light spritz of carbonation up front and a lengthy rough malt, burnt sugar and sherry warmth to the finish. Plenty of pale stonefruit and caramelised, sharp and savoury fruit mince coming through. It has a lengthy sweetness that compliments the bitter fruit and chunky malts. Light earthiness and hint of new oak settles in. With all that’s going on it works harmoniously together. For 13.2% ABV it drinks of a barley wine of moderate strength. Delectable yet not overly complex - it has mellowed in the past few years. It just works. A lovely barley wine! (50cL, 2012 vintage)

fiulijn (18101) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2016
Tasting at Ferris’, vintage 2012, ~4 years old
Cloudy dark amber color, cloudy. The aroma is very corky, the flavor is malty, sweet, for a good body, but overall it’s not aging too well. Warm, alcoholic final.
Nice but old.

RasmusOtt (2082) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark orange/amber with a beige head. Aroma of toffee, butterscotch, toasted malts, bitter nuts and weak booze. The taste has notes of toffee, butterscotch, caramel, bitter nuts, plums, dark sweet fruits, alcohol and a bitter hoppy end. A bit on the boozy side but still an ok sipper.

TET (2465) - Kaarina, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2016
BBE 03.07.24, thus fresh. A reddish, dark brown beer, a head is very small and beige. Aroma is intensive, enjoyable and quite sweet. Apricot marmelade, dry cake, toffee, raisins, and prunes. Taste has dry cake and richness of malts, toffee, herbs, also fresh fruits and wood, nice balancing bitterness and totally the sweetness isn’t so strong. Full bodied, low carbonation, not heavy and enjoyable, great. Sweet type of Barley Wine, but still the balance is there. Enough of complexicity. Delicious beer.
