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

LarsEngen (366) - Sandvika, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2013
25 cl bottle from vinmonopolet. Pours black with a medium, small bubbled light brown head. Leaves some lacing.Nice smokey aroma with oak notes. Flavor of smoke, oak, dark fruits. Soft carbonation, full body, not as complex as the original Sunturnbrew, but this is very drinkable and alcohol is very well hidden.

HopRedHead (382) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a thick dark brown with a short 1cm head that quickly dissipates. Nose is very bourbon-esque oak and smoky-sweet peat. Taste is immediate bourbon, then caramel malt and sweet peat. Hints of raisins and vanilla. Bourbon is very upfront in sweetness but not hot. Nice wet bitterness to finish it off. Really adventurous beer, I dig!

maneliquor (3152) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Wowee this smells good. Pours a very dirty, gluggy, murky brown colour with a small off white head which pretty much disappears as soon as it was formed. Nose shows very sweet peat, bourbon jumps out at you. Loads of vanilla with hints of chocolate. Taste personifies the bourbon ageing. Huge bourbon and vanilla characteristics with light milk chocolate. Peat is in the background without overpowering anything. Finishes like a mild cigar leaving that smokey aftershock on your palate. Superb depth. Creamy mouth feel with only a touch of heat. Damn sensational beer

SaintMatty (5380) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2013
250ml Bottle - Dark brown in colour. Raisins, smoked malt, marzipan and bourbon in the aroma. Sweet, tangy, fruity and smoky taste with notes of smoked malt, dates, burnt rubber and mince pies.

kbudd19 (645) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2013
Pours dark brown with very little head. Lots going on with the smell, tons of smoke, and a whole bunch of bourbon. Very little sweetness, tastes rather sour up front, followed by bourbon and smoke. Interesting but not one I would buy again.

reebtogi (4237) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2013
250ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of light beige head that settles to reveal some spotty lacing. Aroma is smoky with some dark fruits and hints of bourbon and alcohol. Taste is a dark fruity sweetness with some smoke and a herbal bitterness. Medium to heavy body with modest carbonation. Likely this is the first smoked barley wine I have ever tried, and I do believe that I like this one. Recommended for a unique tasting experience.

250ml bottle. Light mahogany with a biege head. Smoke and oak, bit of vanilla, prune, tannins, bit of malt vinegar, hints of acidity. Mild carbonation, moderate body, becomes quite tart on the palate and then acidic with some tannins, more oak and nice smoke.
