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.

Personal contribution. 50 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBSG II. BBF 5/12/2017. Murky brownish amber with mocha bubbles. Smell is very thick candy sugar and caramel malts, syrupy caramel apples, maple syrup, complimentary alcohol, sticky and sweet in a good way. Taste is very thick and sweet maple syrup and candy apples, candy sugar, slight leaves, bitter herbs in the back, warming,… Sticky body, lower carb. Very lovely barleywine.

Bottle.
Deep copper red, big tanned head. Aroma of raisins, prunes, alcohol and roasted malts. Taste is very fruity, full malt body, tons of sweetness. Feel is very oily. Nice. Finish is hop intensive and bitter. I find apples and some heavy fruit notes. A very nice beer from Ægir. Probably their best right now

Eveley (1) - Tønsberg, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2013 does not count
Cloudy, orange-ish brown color, a malty, sweet, flowery bouquet and taste. Intensely sweet, andno hint of alcohol at all. Dangerous, had it not been so filling. Recommended.

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!

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2012 Very complex beer! Aroma of alcohol, caramel, grass and raisins. Aftertaste is caramel, and some hops. Well balanced though. Quite easy to drink, dispite the high avb. Have had this cold and in room temperature, It’s a extreme different taste, way better when it’s room temperature. Never had a beer where the difference is that present.

Flaske drukket hjemme. Mørk brun kaffefarget, tynn beige skumrand. Smaker lakris, kaffe, eple, eik, karamell. En god del alkoholsmak. En veldig god øl

Clear reddish brown colour, beige head. Aroma of malts, hops, cherry, caramel, citrus and light chocolate notes. Sweet flavour, malts, cherry, berries, caramel, bitter hops. Quite bitter finish, hops, malts and liquorice. Nice.
