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

Bouteille de 25cl. Meilleure avant le 17/07/2017…mais encore. Un liquide acajou avec pas de mousse. Un nez d’iode et de fumé. Une bouche raide, fruitée, acide. Je n’ai rien à dire n’à redire de cette bière qui est supposée être une version «enhance» de la Sunturnbrew. Complétement ratée. 2/10

Bottle, shared @ Three Boars in Edmonton. I hadn’t cared much for the original Sunturn Brew, which I had on tap in Champaign Illinois, so I was excited to see what barrel aging did to the base beer. I found that it did improve things overall, but underlying the vanilla sweetness added by the barrel character was a persistent phenolic quality in addition to the peatiness. Still, much more enjoyable than my first experience.

bottle shared by tom10101, thanks! pours cloudy dark brown with a minimal light beige head, some retention. peaty nose, slightly acrid red fruitiness, maple, some sweetness and slightly disturbing acidity, woodsy notes. soft carbonation, medium body - oily, peaty, cloying, slightly harsh grassy, lightly acidic and unbalanced finish. seems like a good use of barrel at first for its underwhelming barrel flavors but the acidity makes me think otherwise.. still.. not horrible

Cola brown with a creamy long lived cap floating on top. Wacky, wacky aroma. Heavy peat, notable alcohol, and just like the regular it has a noticeable medical element in the nose. Mmmmmm..... smoked Robitussin. Seems to be an underlining sourness here. Tar, smoke, sweetness, alcohol, other weird stuff. No beer taste like the Sunturnbrew! is it good??? maybe, is it completely bat shit waked out different? Yes.

Bottle (250 ml). Thanks to kbudd19 for this one! Murky amber/brown with a small beige head and some lacing. Aroma is meaty with strong peated notes, red fruits, sweetness and bourbon. Taste is moderately to heavily sweet with acidic notes, peat, smoked, fruits, oak and light bourbon. Medium body. Poor balance. Too sweet. Disturbing acidic presence. Not one that I’ll buy again.

Une bouteille de 25 cl qui m’a été offerte par quicklearner. Merci! Dans mon verre, un liquide brun acajou sur lequel flotte une feuille de mousse. Au nez, je cherche la rondeur maltée de la proposition régulière et je ne trouve que des parfums écrasants de bourbon, de notes boisées et de notes végétales. Je sens par contre monter une fumée qui arrive trop peu et trop tard. Dommage que cette barrique soit si rude. Le goût est littéralement catastrophique. Je ne goûte rien d’autre qu’un parfum bas de gamme de bourbon mélangé avec des saveurs acides qui font littéralement fondre ma langue. Ridiculement mauvais. En bouche, le liquide est bien mince et n’apporte que frustration et désolation. En finale, ce sont des éléments acides, surets et désorganisés qui m’agressent royalement. Cette chose n’est pas buvable. Dommage car j’avais bien aimé la version régulière de ce vin d’orge fumé.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a black with an off white head. Nose full of vanilla oak, red wine barrels and bourbon. Almost like half red wine half beer. More bourbon coming through in the taste. Peat smoke really firing up. Feeling the booze with this one. Hint of sweetness with this one. Really tastes like red wine fucking cool. Decent stuff ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (397) - 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!
