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

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2012
On tap. Pours brown with an orange hue and a small beige head. Very sticky butter aroma mixed with caramel. Rich body, sweet burned caramel, rustic wood, some iodine. Fortunately the butter notes remain an aroma thing only. Warming alcohol finish with a slight tartness. Rather unclean. 120512

Bottle at Grunnerloka. Opaque dark brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Smooth softish palate, has some body. The barrelling has smoothed out some of the rough edges of the base beer. Smoky peat nicely balanced with the sweeter bourbon - vanilla - wood. There is alcohol warmth in the finish but it adds rather than detracts. Nicely balanced.

The bourbon is subtle enough in this one for the smoke and the spiciness to shine through. Very tasty.
