COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Norwegian tradition alcoholic beverages are sent across the globe to benefit from the temperature variations one experiences when crossing the equator. This beer was brewed at Bridge Road Brewers in Beechworth, Australia. Maturation took place in red wine barrels on its journey to Norway. Blending and packaging was carried out by Nøgne Ø.

Editor’s note: Brewed at Bridge Road, bottled at Nøgne Ø. Shipped to Norway in barrels previously used for red wine.

visionthing (3221) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2015
25cl bottle from Vinmonopolet somewhere in Oslo. A real gusher. Wasn’t quite prepared for that. Oaky and balsamic notes is noticeable already from the mess that came out the bottle before I managed to put a glass under. The rest pours slightly messy dark brown with an off-white to light beige head. Dark malty aroma with caramel, dark dried fruits, balsamic vinegar, oak and some vinous notes. Less sweet than expected and more sour and acidic notes than expected. Surprisingly easy to drink and somehow well balanced with the high alcohol content pretty well hidden. A bit to fizzy, but certainly pleasant stuff.

jfb (4345) - Freising, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2015
(bottle) pitch black colour with a frothy light-beige head. aroma of bretty funk, cherry stones, marzipan and dark chocolate, basically liquid black forest cake, with a touch of cornflakes, some brown sugar, banana and vanilla. flavour is mostly cherry juice and toasted malts, slightly ashy and quite sweet, with a hint of salted popcorn, dark fudge and a light-bitter herbal-hoppy finish. heavy-bodied with lively carbonation.

kappldav123 (5303) - GERMANY - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Stouty aroma. Starts strong malty, stouty, smoky-old, Background dry and bitter. Notes of chocolate and some lquorice. Finish warming-malty, still light sourish. Interesting beer.

Dry red wine with delicate sweet accents. Smell is incredible. Should be just a little more fill with malt body.

Imaril (40) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2015
Aroma of tangy raisins and a little burnt caramel with a hint of something a little funky. Pours thick and sludgy from the bottle with a good amount of tan foam quickly disappearing to lacing. Tastes sweet and fruity like Christmas pudding, then quickly giving way to some red wine and tannin tartness, with a hint of warm woodiness. Mouth feel is rich and thick. This is great.
