This is what you get when you take a Russian Imperial Stout and mix it with an Imperial IPA, then force-feed it sugar until it can’t take any more. Then you put it into 2 different oak barrels that previously contained Bourbon. This is not beer or wine. It’s not spirit either. It’s inspired from America, born in Belgium and headed to outer space. It’s Mohawk Double Rocket , a Belgo-American Barrel Aged Barley Wine Style Ale.

Day 2 of the post Xmas Bamberg Jolly, Cafe Abseits Tasting bottle thanks to Andy Snow (I think?), 25/01/14. Dark mahogony brown with a moderate beige head that dissipates to spotting. Nose is booze forward, earthy, dark fruit, cocoa, slightly musty, dark toffee. Taste comprises toffee fudge, mineral notes, dark fruit, booze well evident and a little on the harsh side but not massively so ABV considered. Full full bodied affair, fine carbonation, warming booze in the finale. Decent enough for 17.2% but not something I’d rush back to !

Sample at a tasting. Brown-isg color with a medium head. Dried fruit, sweet yeasty notes and loads of alcohol. Will probably benefit good from storage.

Tjoxen (173) - SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2013
Vintage 2012. En vän var inte imponerad av den förra året. Jag sparade min flaska i drygt ett år och vet inte vad jag skall tycka. Aromen skriker fatlagring och smaken är svårdefinerad

TBone (15601) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2013
Bottled @SBWF2013
Nut brown color, good brown head. Caramel, toffee and alcohol in the nose. Full-bodied. Toffeish, liquerish with hints of madeira. Burning finish. Lots of potential.

Vignale (3051) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2013
Flaska från SB. Massor av portvinsaromer. Stor sötma och viss genomslag av alkoholen. Portvin, bröstkarameller, torkad frukt, rom, russin, karamelliserat socker, sherry. Ett bra ost-/eller dessertöl. På rätt sida gränsen om för sött och starkt. Riktigt smarrigt.

Staffan47 (903) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Fat i doften. Lite belgo? Inte så spritig initialt men det kommer efteråt. Sprit!. Kroppen är tung men pallar inte väka upp all sprit. Inte vär att testa igen på ett antal år.

oh6gdx (24430) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2013
Bottled@SBWF2013. Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is floral, fruity, some slight alcohol and actually not all too balanced. Flavour is alcohol, sweet alcohol, some ripe fruits, mild liquorice and mild floral notes. At 17.2 % it’s quite blasting, but still somewhat drinkable.

Pyrmir (5247) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2013
Sample from big bottle. Dark ruby with small head. Aroma sweet and intense, plum wine, alcohol, wood. Taste is vinous, plums, madeira, alcohol and apples. Very pleasant
