Sleek modern place with a nice combo of wood and stone. Long bar on one side, tables on the other. Pretty much empty at opening time on a Sunday, which gave me time to chat about beer with the staff. They were very friendly, very knowledgeable and had good beer recommendations. They had one of the most extensive bottle lists Iíve seen in quite some time, many things reasonably priced and some things very pricey. Draft list was also very solid, and they do 4 ounce pours. I had smoked trout which was very tasty. Nice place.

Place rating number 1200!

Visited May 27, 2014.

I didnít know what to expect besides hipster when I walked in. How similar was this going to be to the Mikkeller bar in SF? I think this came first so I guess it would be a situation of the Mikkeller bar being like this. Anyway, theyíre not that similar really. This place of course had a good number of Evil Twin beers available and plenty of guest beers. The bartender was nice enough to pour some free tasters. In the end I went with a full glass of one of the hoppy options. Pretty cool glass that this stuff comes in. The place is dimly lit and kind of quiet. Prices are of course sky high but what do you expect. I can only imagine what the restaurant portion is like. On the subject of food I enjoyed a steak salad. The meet was cooked fairly rare, which I was OK with. What bothered me was the damn arugula. Give it a rest. And while weíre at it (note to all chefs): please stop using dandelion greens. They are not pleasant (see my rating of DBGB). It didnít distract too much from the overall quality of the food but Iím officially over arugula.

The service was friendly despite my obvious disdain for hipsters. On that subject, I think Iím going to relent on the war against the uniqueness of looking like everyone else. Itís really just a fashion style now, not so much a philosophy so what do I care? Cool place overall and Iíd recommend it to anyone in/around Brooklyn.

Nothing to fault at Torst. Modern bar that feels as though the place has only been opened for business yesterday rather than two years now. Sleek marble white bar with backing mirror used for the hand written draft list. Some Evil Twin stuff, Carton, Maine, De Molen... Nothing too crazy on my visit but some fun beers regardless. The bottle list was insanely priced. Simple food menu of small plates but felt pricey for what I got in front of me. The bartender was great - happy to pour tasters, chatty and had good rapport with the punters. Itís well worth at least one visit, although these days I think I mostly prefer more cosy pubs to drink a beer in.

Unassuming entranced, walked by twice. Large nice bar and efficient seating split into tons of small tables. Service knew their stuff and very geek friendly. Selection was big and interesting, with lots of imports. No flights but small pours. Prices are on the higher side, but worth it. I didnít eat. Great place and worth the hype.

Tough place to rate. On the one hand, the selection was quite interesting. 25% of the taps were devoted to various imperial stouts. 14/21 (75%) of the taps were devoted to beers of 7%ABV or stronger. They could use a little more diversity I think. However, they had Schlenkerla fastenbier when I was there, and it was gorgeous, easily the best thing on tap. The vibe was more yuppie than expected, not the typical beer crowd. Staff on the ball on a very busy evening. No one was eating, surprisingly. All the beers are served in a long-stemmed wine glass decorated with pine trees, no matter what the beer style. I did not like this at all, but I suppose it fits with their commitment to stocking mainly beers of >9% ABV: wine strength.The bottle list is short but very well-curated! So overall, I like that they have a vision and that vision is well-executed. This is basically a wine bar for beer lovers.

An exceptional bar. Clean and sleek, itís a very professional place where the staff are attentive and amiable and the range of beers impressive. You will pay for the privilege (cheapest beers are about $1 per ounce) but it is a nice drinking experience. The selection of beers might impress Europeans slightly less than it does Americans, but thatís a somewhat minor quibble. I didnít eat but the there are upscale bar snacks available (cheese, olives, bread, etc.). Definitely worth a visit.

Going to Torst was certifying,yuan unforgettable experience. The place has no exterior sign so it took a few minutes to find it. The interior looks like something out of an ikea catalog,mots of bleached wood and uncomfortable furniture, which is not surprising given its Nordic origins. The bathroom is coed but thats neither here nor there for Brooklyn. Apparently there are plans to develop a back room as a restaurant bit it wasnít open when I visited. They have 21 taps regulated by a contraption that looks like it was borrowed from the set of 2010. I was surprised that ony 2 of the 21 taps were evil twin but they have a lot of variety and certainíy somethings that arenít common elsewhere. The bottle list had way more evil twin and other goodies. I like that beers were available in 8 ounce pours which encourages tasting more varieties. The prices were hit or miss. The staff seemed to be passionate about beer and made some good suggestions. I think Iíll come back during the day when I heard it was less crowded.

Visited early evening with Max and James. Easy to find place, right above the Nassau Station on the G train. Long bar with 20 or seats, with tables in front, and along the side. I visited prior to the back room being open, so this review is only about the bar. The highlight of Torst is certainly the beers. Draft selection was 21 beers, 11 of which were Evil Twin beers. Prices on draft are a touch high, though not out of control the quality. The bottle list is really the exceptional aspect - there are bottles that I have only seen here. Blaeber, Framboos, etc. These are very pricey, though I mean from a sheer economic perspective, are fairly priced. It will be interesting to see if this place can maintain a list like this over time. The service was pretty aloof, and it took awhile to get beers, even before the place was crowded. As mentioned by others, the mirrored draft list is difficult to read, though I am told they are fixing that. Overall, this is a must visit place for visitors and locals alike for the beer lists alone.

88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

In short, this is Evil Twin/Jeppeís answer to MikkelerBAR only in New York instead of Copenhagen. Came with the entire NYC ratebeer group for a Saturday afternoon. Secret, unassuming white door is your entrance. Could easily pass by without knowing it was here. Interior is clean, simple, woodwork and white. Long bar with a long mirror displaying the tap list on handwritten white marker. All tap beers served in stemmed wine glasses, smaller 8oz pours and larger 12+ oz pours. Prices were reasonable up to $8 per pour. Selection is a case of quality over quantity: Probably 20 taps but excellent diversity with focus on Evil Twin of course, Belgian, other Danish beers. Tap list when I was there was lacking in American beers but no matter. Keg rotation here is quick, nothing insane like Ma Che Siete but certainly very quick with no stale keg backlog. Special edition one-off stuff on tap that you will never find anywhere else like Port BA Even More Jesus, Gin Barrel 1809 Berliner. Bottle list is insane. Letís just say that if there is a rare bottle of beer youíve been after, try and ask if it is available even if not on the menu. Food plates were cured meats, Danish rugbrod, pickled vegetables, olives. All very high quality, perfect for beer pairing. It is clear that Jeppe knows exactly what is needed when trying a flight of different specialties beers. The restaurant in the back is not open yet, but once it is, I have no doubt the food quality will be extremely high. Very cozy, clean, happening place. Was very crowded and hopping at 3-4pm on Saturday and Iím sure continued like that until close. Service was quick, on the ball, understood all of our crazy orders, clearly trained well and understand beer. Did not make me wait for more than 1-2 minutes for an order despite the large crowd. Had the great privilege to chat with Jeppe 1 on 1 for about 15 minutes. Pretty amazing experience. Even got to meet Elliot!

Though the initial excitement has worn off, this place is solid for three observed reasons: the bottle list, the tap list, and the atmosphere. I wish I could add parking. The bottle list because of special European availability, though no longer the European only Cantillons. The tap list because of the great selections of Europe and the USA as well as a good and not overwhelming selection of the Evil Twins. The lower comfortable bar and comfortable major league service. Excitement will surely pick up with the upcoming restaurant.
