To enhance the flavor of our Sunturnbrew, we aged it in bourbon barrels for a year. We think it was a good year!

Keg, as part of North Bar (Leeds)’s 15th birthday. Pours a murky, coppery brown. Aroma is utterly stunning - smells like an opulent smoking room. Leather with a tobacco note from the smoke, and bourbon. German/polish sausage, caramel, figs, dark fruits as well. Taste is caramel/toffee, with dark fruits, figs. Plenty of bourbon and oaky vanilla. Oh, and a lot of smoke, too, defenite sausage-y taste. As rich as a barleywine, with the same alcohol kick, too. Long, lingering finish that’s impressively balanced, given how f*cking batshit crazy this stuff is. Ridiculously good, with one of the best aromas I’ve ever had in a beer. Great stuff.

On the nose it was very peaty, smoky and has a nice whisky touch to it. The mouth feel was a bit of a disappointment, quite thin, very little sweetness, lot of bitter tones to it that do not really go well with this peaty aroma in my opinion.

Vaiz (3990) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle at home. Dark brown pour, almost no head. Aroma is loads of peat, caramel, licorice, whiskey and sugary. Flavor is a bit thin, quite harsh, but with a very nice smooth peaty bourbon afterburn. Nice.

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours a murky brown with a thin head which quickly vanishes. Body is medium with low carbonation. Aroma is heavily preated mixed with smoked ham, slight bourbon and brown sugar. Taste is like peated whisky and lots of oak. Wasn't my favourite to be honest

Svesse (7052) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2015
(Bottle) Dark brown colour with brief, beige head. Malty, smoky nose with notes of black rye bread, bourbon wood, liquorice, soy sauce, smoked ham, hints of chocolate, peat smoke and a touch of red wine. Malty, smoky, vinous finish with black rye bread, oak wood, vanilla, liquorice, soy sauce, peat smoke, some chocolate, orange peel, hints of red wine and a vinous, peaty finish with a slight acidity and a balanced bitterness. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Soft and velvety mouthfeel. Quite complex but, in a way, all over the place. Interesting and really nice.

The_Osprey (3868) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2015
250ml bottled July 2012. Dark red, opaque, small ring of off-white head. Aroma is lemon sherbet, sherry. Body is light, foamy, low-ish carbonation. Taste has smoke and bourbon up front, and then some sherbet sourness, TCP. Smoke and tart fruit is the general impression. Dry, acidic finish. Seems more like a red wine and whisky aged beer than bourbon. Nice.
