To enhance the flavor of our Sunturnbrew, we aged it in bourbon barrels for a year. We think it was a good year!

Countbeer (5034) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: When opening this bottle it whistled (to me. Finaly somebody that recognises my beauty)! Dark orange to amber brown pour. A medium to lightly bigger creamy beige foamy head that changes or even disappears really slow. The body has a deep dark hazy brown colored appearance. Aroma is a very nice mix of smoke, bourbon, peat, red fruit like berries and some alcohol soaked cherries, roosvicee, floral and plant tones, liquorice wood and creamy sweet malts. Flavours are a nice mix of bourbon, red fruit, berries, cherries and some strawberry, alcohol, wood, peat, malts, spices, cream, bitters, light berry sour touch, some porridge and hay with alcohol drenched grains. Aftertaste is a mix of wood, spices, alcohol, red fruit/berries, grains and some bourbon. Low carbo, soft silky mouthfeel, full body and an oily texture. I like this stuff. Expensive but good.

GothGargoyle (1567) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
Cloudy darkish brown with a minimal beige head. Aroma is grapes, oak, leather, sandalwood, fig, rhubarb. Medium-light bodied, slightly acidic on the palate with some smoke and tannin as well as booze on the finish. Taste is dry whit wine, liquorice, oak, bourbon, fig, hickory, smoke, leather. Pretty tasty, would make a hell of a BBQ sauce.

aleksander9 (641) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2013
Appearance is Hazy dark reddish/brown. Aroma is really good, alot of smoke, vinous, bourbon, red wine, chocolate and wood. A little disappointing medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Little aftertaste of roasted malts, bourbon, wood, peated smoke, almost whiskey like. Overall: Nice beer. Big pluss for aroma, but also minus for taste and palate. Second edition will probably be awesome!

omega (778) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 4, 2013
Quite sweet on the palate, but has a leatheriness about it that makes it work. Hides alcohol very well with little head. It’s a nice beer, but given the price tag it is one you only try once.

gyllenbock (5352) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle bought at Systembolaget in September 2012. Almost clear mahogany with a small head. Rather vinous with smoke, leather, bourbon and malt. Some spices in the finish. An ok one.

Boutip (5025) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle: Poured a cloudy deep brown color ale with a medium size dark brown foamy head with average retention and some light lacing. Aroma of peat smoked malt with some bourbon notes and quiet a bit of residual sugar notes. Taste is a sweet mix of caramelized malt with plenty of residual sugar and some bourbon notes with limited vanilla coming out with a heavy peat smoke finish. Body is full with limited filtration and medium carbonation with some warming alcohol notes discernable. This is a very intense experience with some complexity and limited drinkability (good idea to bottle this in nip size bottle). The bourbon notes might be a bit too straightforward and probably too much residual sugar kind of ruined what could have been abetter experience.

SirLimpsalot (2503) - SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2013
@basunen: trevlig vinös doft med tydlig fatton. Ganska snäll smak men trevlig att smutta på. Lite torr eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Cloudy dark brown, minimal head. Aroma of peaty smoke with some tart wine. Mid sweet with full body and rounded mouthfeel. Peat and bourbon, peppery heat and red wine. Warming finish with salty bitterness. Very intense.

altonbrownd (3680) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle from Brewberry. First off, I am no fan of Smoked nor Sours... Body is dark brown with thin, mocha, oily head. Nose is malts with some bourbon strain, vanilla and spices. Taste is sour, acidic, some vanilla and spicy finish. Not sure about this one. Bourbon definitely in the syrupy finish as well.
