A new beer in Lervig Aktiebryggeri’s range "Brewer’s Reserve", the creation of Lervig’s head brewer Mike Murphy. Masse malt pluss humle og ølgjær gjør ekte Stavanger-vann om til utsøkt barley wine! Fem måneders lagring i bourbon-tønner gir smaken et snev av vanilje, bourbon og eik. Barley Wine har en alkoholprosent på 10 og er perfekt til ost eller som rent dessert-øl. Nyt hver munnfull med andakt - det er kun laget 800 liter. Hops: East Kent Goldings. Recommended serving temperature 10-12 degrees C.

Il colore é un rosso scuro, quasi marrone... viene affinata in botti di barbon x un anno... sentori di vaniglia, barbon, cocco, tabacco, cacao... buona la persistenza e ottima bevibilita’ pur essendo una Barley... da abbinare a formaggi stagionati e a cioccolato.

From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting at Andrew’s house on August 18. 330 mL bottle. The pour is a darker brown with hints of ruby shining through. There is a beautiful thick khaki head that falls to a ring, leaving a couple spots of lave. The aroma is really good. Lots of caramel malts, dark fruits, sweet bourbon, light oak, and vanilla all balance well. The flavor is much of the same. The fruits and caramel are big up front and the light vanilla, small booze, and oak really come together on the back end. This is a big surprise. The mouth feel is a little light and has a softer carbonation. The aftertaste is lingeringly sweet and carries just a hint of booze. This is an excellent barleywine.

Cafe Sara, august 6th 2015. Dark brown body with a light brown head. Aroma is fruity with vanilla and toffee, sweet caramel taste, bourbon and toast, apricot and vanilla. Very light alcohol taste, vineous and malty finish. Nice!

Barley Wine muy bueno. Tiene poco gas y mucho cuerpo. Un sabor inicial como a caramelo y al final se nota el punto alcohólico del burbon.

A brown beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, malt, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, malt, and over ripe fruits, leading to a bitter finish.

De botella. Espuma casi nula. Aroma de caramelo, ciruelas pasas, aunque no demasiado apreciable. En boca realmente compleja, caramelo por doquier, pasas, tostados. Un cervezón.

Dark brown liquid, no head. Strong aroma of bourbon and licorice. Rich mouthfeel. Strong taste of licorice, toffee, caramelmalts and some bourbon. Weird one, but really enjoyable.
