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!

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 8/20
Bathory (458) - Bryne, - 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.

Marduk (2981) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 5, 2014
250ml bottle (tasting @VastActive place, thanks). Hazy copper color. Small size head, disappears. Smoked, malty, sweet, winey notes in aroma. Sourish, malty, sweet, smoked taste. Weird one.

FatPhil (9616) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 3, 2014
250ml bottle - thanks VastActiv and the rest of the Hel crowd!
Smells heady, and a little sour, and with very rich sweet malts. Dark, almost no nead. A bit weird, and definitely hot in the mouth. Anna thinks its better integrated than I do, to me it’s a bit hot, and the aging hasn’t mellowed it enough. Sour aspect a little off-putting.

mjs (4794) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2014
(Bottle, 0.25 l, courtesy of VastActiv, 20141122) The beer poured brown and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had vanilla, liquorice and booze. Palate was full bodied and dry with mediim carbonation. Flavours were vanilla, smoke, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste had barrel and bitterness. A boozier version of the original.

tiong (4018) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2014
250ml bottle

Pours dark brown with a tiny head. Aroma of smoked malts, wood, oak, bourbon and vanilla. Taste is sweetish, tartish and smoky with loads of wood, oak and vanilla. Finish is woody, oaky and smoky with hints of leather and vanilla. A bit unbalanced.

Bottled@AIH40 (from Vinmonopolet Kirkenes). Deep ambery brown colour, small brown head. Aroma is smoked wood, some sour wood, mild sweetness as well as some toasted notes. Flavour is wooden, some smoked notes, mild tartness and sourness as well. Also slight raisins and plummy notes as it warms up.

TBone (12998) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Bottled 25cl (Vinmonopolet, AIH40)
Dark brown color, small beige head. Aroma is a bit cellary, woody, smoke, alcoholic with hints of toffee and malts. Medium-bodied. Strong alcohol, whiskey, wood, smoke and cellary notes. I think that barrel aging has not improved ths beer.
