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.

Sort med et lite brunskjær. Mye skum som danner seg allerede i flasken, på torss av at denne egentlig er alt for kald når jeg henter den frem. Skummet blir liggende lenge og minner egetlig litt om eggedosis med litt sjokolade for å gi brunfarge. En syrlig duft er påtrengende helt fra flasken blir åpnet. Den minner sterkt om duften fra surøl, med halvmodne stikkelsbær, vått tre og vårfriske blader. Under dette ligger et hint om at mer fruktighet og fylde. Straks ølet treffer ganen er det en annen dans. Her er det mye smak og mange smaker, som leker på tungen. Her er eik, kirsebær, modne stikkelsbær, solbær, fiken, dadler det hele med et lett vinaktig preg og etter hvert går det mer mot syrligheten i nykappede kister. Ettersmaken følger i det samme sporet. En lett tørr fruktig, men lang og behagelig etterdønning av hovedsmaken.

Sparf (121) - Östersund, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2013
Tydliga ektoner tonar fram ur en hög, starkt vinös arom. En touch av jordgubbe och karamell och torkad frukt. Jästtonerna påminner även om spontanjäst belgare. Färgen är riktigt mörkbrun och med ett utmärkt skum. Även smaken är vinös med druvor och en markerad sötma baserad i jästtoner och fat. Halvfyllig kropp med dämpad champgnekolsyra. Avslutning och eftersmak är märkligt torr, obalanserad mot en viss surhet med källartoner.

Linnet (1126) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Ar: lots of red wine, grapes, funky yeastiness, tartness, cherries, alcohol, butterscotch, unlike any quad I’ve had, but I like it. Ap: ruby/Brown colour, medium tan head, lacing. T: low bitterness, medium tartness, distinct sweetness, malty, lots of red wine, woody, complex as can be, the aftertaste is extremely layered and complex. P: fullbodied, soft carbonation, warming finish. O: quietly wonderful.

Ktwse (2095) - SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle from SB. Points off for exploding all over my sofa. Dark brown pour with thick tan head. Aroma of syrup, muscovado, light bretta, dried fruit. Sweet initially followed by light sour, red to black fruit finish. Boozy. Light to medium, smooth body with average carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska från systembolaget. Tjock brun färg med ett gyllene skum. Söt doft. Körsbär, gräddkola och fat. Smått syrlig smak med inslag av kaffe och frukt. Angenäm beska

gyllenbock (4876) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget Passagen. A bit hazy dark brown/red with a large tan head. Aroma of cherries, fruit, some wood and light spices. Simliar taste. Also notes of alcohol, toffee and something that reminded of red wine. Quite tasty.

@ Basunen: halvfruktig källardoft. Ganska len smak med trevliga toner av socker och kola. God, men inte jätteimponerad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brewed 20.12.12, best before 20.12.17, bottle 05341
It pours a dark brown color, not clean, with medium sized head, reducing quickly to a thin layer. The aroma is mild; there is some roasted malt with a vinous vein. Good body strength, round mouthfeel; it has a good flavor of pumpernickel, by having a combination of dark malts and mild sourness; the sweetness is moderate, it has a light red wine feeling and a light touch of liquorice and spices; the bitterness level is correct and the alcohol is well controlled.

It’s a very good beer; the maltiness is very rich; it reminds me of some Struise beer.
But the price tag (89kr for 25cl) is ridiculous; just because two breweries are involved, do they both want to earn a premium?

25cl thanks to Cunningham. Nice dark brown color with thin persistent brownish head. Body is medium and carbonation mediumly fizzy. Taste is medium bitter, medium to low sweet, and also some light sourness in here. Aroma is caramel, wood, red wine, light yeast, herby, liquor all around. Very nice beer!

mikkos (202) - FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Clear very dark red pour with a large off-white head. Aroma is hugely red wineish, cherry, port. Some alcohol too when warming up more. Taste is more red wine, sweet but good. Alcohol warms up in the end. Very different from what I've ever had before. Weird, but good :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
