COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

lillmuffin (72) - Haugesund, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours Brown almost black colour with beige head. Roasty caramel smell. Sour lemon, blackberries, plums, smoke, rubber. This was surprisingly weird, but I have only tasted a pair of barley wines,

sebletitje (6641) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2014
Bouteille 25cl de HopDuvel, BB 17/07/2017. Ambrée, col fin beige léger blanc-cassé. Arôme est malté avec un bouquet tourbe modéré et un léger rétro boisé. Petite pointe anisée. Palais est malté, tourbe avec une note de fumé le tout étant ponctué par un bourbon subtil qui vient ajouter une petite balance douce. Malts grillé et caramel sur une amertume houblonnée légère et ici aussi, un léger anisé. Collant aux lèvres avec une pointe amer d’agrumes.

Pyrmir (3319) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2014
250 ml bottle. Dark brown with beige head. Aroma of smoke, peat, light acidity, some funk, lemon. Taste is a bit acidic, smokey, peat, alcohol and some lemon curd. Nice

Procent (72) - POLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Zamiast nut bourbona czułem nuty winne, połączone z owocami (śliwki itp). Poza tym nuty palone i trochę karmelu. W smaku podobnie, trochę zbyt kwaśne, bez oczekiwanej słodyczy i bez goryczkowej kontry - chociaż wszystkiego po trochu. Wydawało się nieułożone, mimo rocznego leżakowania.Określiłbym je, jako połączenie barley wine z flandersem.

aleksnaes (1) - Kolltveit, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2014 does not count
Veldig syrlig ettersmak, lambic-aktig, tydelig bourbon, syrlig og karamellaktig lukt.

nilsas (1336) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2014

Gurthnar (1648) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle from bottle park. Full of aroma. Raisins, plums, heavy smoke, peated. Hazy dark brown colour. Taste has quite strong sourness. Acidic, apples. Not entirely disgusting, but not the usual peated smoky pleasure. The normal Sunturnbrew was way better.

Maris (983) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2014
From a 250ml bottle on 30/5/2014 (present from my wonderful wife and precious daughter). Pours a dark red amber with just a hint of head. Has a strong aroma of dark fruit (grapes) and booze. The flavour is big and sweet, with dark fruit again to the fore (more grapes, plums, prunes), along with some brown sugar and more than a dash of bourbon. It finishes with a distinct, quite sour, puckering bitterness which provides balance to the sweetness up front. The palate is relatively syrupy and the carbonation medium. Don’t really get much peat in this and it doesn’t really present as a barley wine to me. None the less, it’s a quite interesting boozy sipper.
