COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Et samarbeidsbrygg mellom Ringnes og Brooklyn Brewery. Et fatmodnet, smaksrikt øl til kalde vinterkvelder. For barske polfarere og deg som er opptatt av øl. 45 IBU. Brygget med tørket appelsinskall, Simcoehumle, norsk lynghonning og colombiansk kaffe. Da vi brygget Ringnes Imperial Polaris sammen med Garrett Oliver i 2012,la vi litt av brygget over på bourbonfat. Her fikk ølet modne i noen måneder og tok til seg smak og aroma av eik og bourbon. Ølet er rikt og komplekst og bør serveres i glass med stor klokke, ved 10-12 grader. Ved lagring vil ølet få et enda mer vinøst preg.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2014
Sampled from a 0.33l bottle @ Bergen Ølfestival. This one pours a watered down Cola brown blurry looking body with a small quickly sidesticking beige top. It has a nice gentle sweetness on the nose, I get a good caramel, some soft wet dark fruits, raisins and if I look well and long perhaps a swift of wood. It has a lovely flavor this. Lots or red dried raisins and cranberries. Damn, this is actually surprisingly tasty. There’s vanilla, it’s beyond recognize infused with wood. It’s also surprisingly lightdrinkable and light on the mouthfeel. A bit sticky sweet, but I feel it suits it quite nice and it has a gentle prickling carbonation level.

visionthing (2621) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 8, 2014
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours close to clear brown with a small beige head. Malty aroma with caramel, dark fruits, spices and hints of citrus, vanilla and bourbon. Sweet, complex and flavourful. Interesting and quite pleasant combination, but too sweet for my taste. Still certainly a nice winter warmer.

tfredvik (1063) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2014
I brought this one up to our mountain cabin just to have the pleasure to enjoy it while surrounded by 1.5 m of pure, white snow... It pours an almost clear dark brown body with a tiny, off-white, short-lived head that doesn’t leave much lacing. The moderate aroma is very sweet, with lots of lovely, sweet honey. Also plenty of dark dried fruits, and in the back I get gentle hints of whisky. The taste is heavy sweet, but the moderate bitter long-lasting finish ensures that the beer doesn’t feel cloying. Strong flavours of honey, dark dried fruits, dark caramel and hoppy hints, all on pleasant bourbon backdrop. Very pleasant mouthfeel, the beer is full-bodied and oily with a soft carbonation. It’s been a couple of months since last time I had the Imperial Polaris, but if my memories serve me right, I get less coffee and citrus in the Superior, but far more honey, and the barrel ageing has absolutely made this nice beer even better. Much of the hoppy crispness that the Imperial had when it was fresh is of course gone now (in both beers), but I’d trade hops for whisky in a beer like this any day. Go Ringnes, go!
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 22 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Grønland, Oslo]
