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.

hackobock (2758) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2016
January 26, 2016. Bottle, brewed December 20, 2012.
Slow gusher, dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel, vinous, woody, hints of tart berries, grape skins, some prunes, figs, light spicy. Taste is sweet malty, vinous, light sour. Finish is sweet fruity, malty with caramel, figs, prunes, vinous, light sour, some grape skin and light dry woody notes. Medium to full bodied, soft to average carbonation, quite creamy texture with a dry finish.
Much more wood, vinous and sourness than expected which wasn’t bad since it balance out the quite intense sweetness and makes it more drinkable.

minutemat (3224) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2015
25cl bottle, shared with Bladdock as the penultimate beer of our 2015 Rainbow Project tasting sesh. From trade with Gunnar - many thanks! Pours deep brown with thin tan head. Aroma is complex with some oaky red wine. Taste is woody, malty and super complex with some lovely red wine warmth. A hint of funk. Wish I kept the bottle to myself now!

BlackHaddock (5387) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2015
25cl Bottle: cheers Mat, another rare and wonderful beer I have shared with you. Poured a cloudy dark brown with a thin beige head. Nose was red wine and semi-sour red berries. The taste was also wine like and ’funky’ with again a red berry influence: so a flavoursome but ’tart’ beer with plenty going on, there was a dry finish with a woody undertone throughout. I like complex beers more and more these days, my palate must be getting a little more discerning.

Marduk (4780) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 7, 2015
250ml bottle (thanks Mart). Clear chestnut color. Small size, tan-yellow head, stays. Red currant, sweet, acidic, woody, touch of grapes in aroma. Sweet, toffee, hard candy, fructose and oak in taste. Sweet hazelnuts and oak in aftertaste. Quite heavy carbonation which makes it bit harsh in the mouth. No alcohol detected, but I can feel the burn inside. Complex brew.
