COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Barley Wine - som navnet antyder er det en drik af næsten vinstyrke, men blot lavet på bygmalt i stedet for druer. Rig og fyldig med karamelnoter som sig hør og bør for typen, men med tilstrækkelig humle til at holde både sødme og alkohol i skak. Udtrykket "Barrel Proof" kendes fra den amerikanske bourbonindustri, hvor det bruges om en whiskey, der tappes på flaske uden nogen form for fortynding. Og således også med vores Barrel Proof, der har tilbragt 5 måneder netop på bourbonfade og derefter tappet på flaske helt uden svinkeærinder. Resultatet er en øl, der i høj grad er til stille nydelse og fordybning. Og hvad derefter sker, kan vi ikke tage ansvaret for - men vi hører meget gerne om det!

KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Glowing dark amber. Sweet bourbon aroma, very inviting. Rather neutral beer base, the barrel charater is the star here. PAcks a real punch, this is for mature drinkers. Rough edges.

ClubGonzo (4232) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy ruby-hued dark mahogany brown body with a medium creamy light beige head. Very nice. Nose is vanilla, raisins, nuts, caramel, toffee, wood, bourbon and hints of cream and alcohol. Taste is caramel, vanilla, wood, toffee, bitter herbs, alcohol and hints of raisins, nuts and biscuits. Full body, medium carbonation. Very nice BA touch on this one, the bourbon notes protrude just enough to assert the flavors. A bit bitter in the finish, otherwise very good.
