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.

Skinnyviking (6746) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle at the courtesy of Rune. Medium high creamy off-white lasting head. Well, would have expected the head to be dark brown. It is actually black. Sour hoppy soapy aroma. Heavily carbonated sour hoppy veneous berries flavor with a high hops bitterness. Long bitter sour finish. Cannot remember having tested anything like this before.

Holmen1 (2275) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2013
Flaske fra Polet, hjemme: forventningene stiger i takt med skummet som tårner seg opp og velduften stiger mot de olfaktoriske sentre. Allerede første, forsiktige munnfull forteller at dette er noe helt spesielt, en quadrupel med herlig vinøse overtoner som dysser ned sødmen. Opplevelsen crescenderer for hver munnfull. Et rikt, dynamisk og harmonisk ensemble i stjerneklasse. Bravissimo!

espenra (860) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
25cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Batch 866B. Brewed 2012-12-20. Best before 2017-12-20.It poured a dark brown colour with a red hue and a medium big foamy head that settles down fast. Aroma is fruity and sweet. Definitely notes of the red wine barrels. Oak. Floral with some vinous notes. Flavour is sharp, but not directly bitter. Vinous, bordering on vinegar. Oak and red wine barrels again. Dark red fruits. Some caramel. Rough mouthfeel. Short aftertaste. A decent beer, but not something I’d buy a lot of.

25 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Bottle nr 00280. Pours dark brown with a medium offwhite head that leaves a nice lacing. Extreme complex aroma with strong notes of red wine, oak, malt, dark dried fruits, sherry and caramel. Flavour is complex too with light bitterness, medium sweetness, light dryness, soft carbonation, very full body and a long complex aftertaste with redwine, oak and some fruits. Strange but a very cool one.
