COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

VsXsV (3857) - Stockholm, - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle. Murky brown liquid with small to medium brown head. Aroma of dark fruit, raw sugar, wood, honey, nail polish, bourbon and booze. A bit phenolish. Taste is medium to high sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of candy, dark fruit and booze. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation. The nail polish component isn’t nice. The high ABV doesn’t add anything to the beer... Do something balanced instead.

Leighton (17802) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Bottle shared at Cafe Abseits during the Bamberg Jolly - January 2014. Cheers! Pours lightly hazy golden brown with a foamy, off-white head. Decadent and ballsy, but very good. Lots of heavy bread, fruitcake, caramel. Full bodied with chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish, with gooey fruits, toffee. Good stuff in small doses.

Inbreak (4219) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2015
30.06.2015, 0,375l bottle (2012 vintage) @ home:
Small creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry and boozy, burnt caramel, dark malts, alcohol, dark sugar, grass, minerals, oak, hops, citrus peel, candied sugar, dried fruits. Taste is slightly sweet and boozy, minerals, alcohol, dark sugar, grass, burnt caramel, citrus peel, hops, oak, leafs. Medium to longlasting bitterness, dry boozy mouthfeel. Nice, and some years of aging will probably make this oe even better...

gyllenbock (7229) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget, bought in March 2013. Hazy dark brown with a small firm tan head. Aroma of alcohol, fruit, oak and bourbon. Sweet taste of oak, light licorice, bourbon, some fruit. The body was full and the carbonation low. Warming alcohol in the finish. Really strong but still rather drinkable.

Rune (10838) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2015
375ml in a dark green bottle with a golden neck. Vintage 2012 bought at Vinmonopolet Tromsdalen. Fair fawn-coloured head dissipating over an unclear red-brownish body. Prominent aromas of bread, herbal hops and bourbon. Comprehensive taste of juicy bread, figs, vanilla oak and ripe orange. Port and bourbon backbone. Dried fruity ending with tingling alcohol down the swallow. Enjoying, heavy stuff. (Slow sipper during the earth hour, Tromsø 28.03.2015).

Beer5000 (5778) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2015
Sample @ Kristiansand ølfestival. Unclear reddish brown body with a lacing, small off-white head. Strong and good aroma of sweet malt, caramel, dry fruit, hint of chocolate and surprisingly low alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, dry fruit, oranges, some oak and bitterness. Full bodied and long lasting aftertaste with warming alcohol. It’s kinda sweet and boozy but not in a bad way.
