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.

Brown-orange. Barrel nose with notes of fruits, menthol and alcohol. Fruity flavour with notes of toffee and fruit. Bitter. This is one crazy beer, but well-crafted.

Det är lite synd att man ofta är onykter när man dricker små guldkorn. Det här var en mycket trevlig öl, kraftig till tusen och med toner av vanilj.

Gorm (1457) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Mørk brun nesten sort farve med beige skum. Lukt av portvin, mørk frukt og rosin. Smak av sherry, kaffe, karamell, sjokolade og mørk frukt. Antagelig lagret på brukte eikefat derav smak av sherry og portvin. Søt og god. Vintage 2012. Vinmonopolet.

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2014
Flaske 375ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsdalen. Ekstremt dyp amber. Bra skum med litt farge. Varer en stund. Heftig aroma av sherry. Innslag av plommer & fiken. Smaken en kaskade av ulik frukt. Både sur og søt i en herlig blanding. En lurer på hvor alkoholen er blitt av men den kommer snikende med en behagelig tørrhet - og røde kinn. Kanskje i søtligste laget men denne kunne jeg tenke meg både til og som dessert.

Powerful stuff. Bourbon, alcohol edge, bitterness, sweetness. barley wine character, I guess this will mellow a bit with age.

Vintage 2012; bb 2022
Dark brown color with generous creamy head. The aroma is mild but elegant, with some malt, vanilla, oak, raisins, alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, immediately warming because of the alcohol content, but not boozy; excellent malt flavor, very sweet but not cloying, with a good share of dark and of dry fruits; the bitterness is also very high, with plenty of hop resins and some bitter oranges. The final is hot, but still full of flavors.
Extreme, but dynamic and very pleasing.

ansalon (1613) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a red hint. Aroma is everything but the kitchen sink: dark sugar, ripe apple, honey, nutmeg, chocolate... Taste is sweet with muscovado sugar, applebrandy, caramel, toffee, vanilla, honey, dates with hints of mango, dill, and soya. Some boozy notes in the finish which is not surprising considering the abv. Really good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
