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!

Bathory (458) - Kverneland, - JAN 17, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 Pours a brown hazy colour with almost no head at all. Sticky aroma with lots of sourness. The bourbon is very present. Flavour is very sour, with the smokeyness in the background. Some red fruits in the aftertaste. Medium body for a 11 abv, sticky mothfeel, with little carbonation. I didn’t like this one at all, way too sour. Think this one may need som storing for some years to balance out a bit.

Douberd (4311) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2016
(Nøgne Ø Sunturnbrew Bourbon Barrel) Bottle 250 ml received from a trade with Cuso a couple of years ago, many thanks Imro! Served into a snifter, ABV 11% Dark brown to almost totally black colour on the body, with a small and a bit thin light beige head on top, with lo retention, eventually leaving a thin line of foam around the glass. Aroma has plenty of smoked malts and peat, light alcohol, nice notes of bourbon. Taste is sweet with a faint touch of acidity, plent of smoke, peat, bourbon, alcohol, light vanilla, some dark fruits. Medium thick body with soft carbonation. Very good, 250 ml was too little for this one.

DeanF (2202) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2016
Nice creamy head and black body with ruby notes. Aroma of leather, cherry, oak, roast beef. Flavour is leather and meat, not as complex as it could be. Nice on the mouth and alcohol is expertly well hidden. Really smart beer, not quite a symphony but definitely a damn good solo.

cmacklin (650) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 4, 2016
250ml bottle. Pours an unclear, medium brown with lots of sediment floating around and a thin, fully diminishing, beige head. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, bourbon, peat smoke and oak. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, dark fruit, bourbon, peat smoke and oak with a slightly tart, dry, bitter, warming alcohol finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Nicely balanced.

alteregoo (672) - POLAND - DEC 24, 2015
Barwa brązowo brunatna, nieprzezroczysta, mętna, z pływającymi kawałkami drożdży. Piana zaledwie w postaci minimalnego krążka. W aromacie dominuje wanilia i stara dębowa beczka, odrobina nut czerwonego wytrawnego wina, dojrzałej wiśni i drogiej whiskey. Szalenie przyjemny, bogaty i intensywny. W smaku odzwierciedlenie motywów z zapachu, dodatkowo pojawia się wędzonka ogniskowa i lekko torfowa. Jest dość treściwie, lepko, na początku troszkę słodyczy w typie miodu spadziowego, owoców suszonych, po chwili troszkę kwaskowatości beczkowo-winnej, na koniec niewielka likierowość. W afterteasie znów czerwone, szlachetne wino i motywy piwniczne. Goryczka średnia, pestkowa, alkohol przyjemnie rozgrzewający, ale znacznie mniej wyczuwalny niż sugerowałby woltaż. Nagazowanie niskie, całość świetnie ułożona. Piwo nie jest już warzone, dlatego cieszę się, że dane było mi je spróbować. Wielowymiarowość, rewelacyjny aromat, balans i olbrzymi wpływ beczki po whiskey to atuty tego trunku. Mocna rzecz, wybitnie degustacyjna.

Säuerlich malziger Antrunk mit deutlichen Bourbonnoten. Harte Aromenübergänge, spät würzig. Das geht runder. 9/8/7/8/11/8

On the nose it was very peaty, smoky and has a nice whisky touch to it. The mouth feel was a bit of a disappointment, quite thin, very little sweetness, lot of bitter tones to it that do not really go well with this peaty aroma in my opinion.
