COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Då Tor kom køyrande over himmelen med bukkane sine, skalv både jord og fjell, og med kvart hammarkast sprang det lyn ned mot verda. På same måte kjem denne kraftige versjonen av Amerikansk Barleywine, med smakar som minner om tørka frukt og eple. Passar til kraftige oster, og til å dele med gode venner.

snzcujo (282) - - NOV 14, 2012
Tasted from the bottle bon 13/11/2012, bought @Vika vinmonopolet, Oslo Aroma is quite intense, all sorts of classic barley-wine notes, but with such a pleasant, elegant nuances on top. Taste is immensely overwhelming, very intense and complex. Just the only slight downside is a hint of alcohol in the end. Recommended+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CurlyJoe (148) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2017 Dark orange/brown colour, some white head. Quite sweet in taste, mostly boozy. Quite a fair amount of malt. Good beer, but could be more interesting.

peponi (1686) - Hannover, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2017

Nonshaugen (537) - Fetsund, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2016
33 cl, bottle conditioned. Hazy, deep reddish amber, ultra thin head, no carbonation. Aroma is rich, malty, dark fruits, hoppy and complex. Mouthfeel is oily and bitter, lasts forever. Taste is bitter, strong, malty, caramel, dark fruits and alcohol.

hawthorne00 (3718) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear deep amber with a cream cap, leaving a fair bit of sediment in the bottle.3+ Aroma is rich but not overtly boozy, with crème brûlée, figs, marzipan, Indian sweet shop spices. Threatens to be very sweet and delivers in spades, but with a big bitter kick at the end. Well, there is a fair bit of overt alcohol after all. I like the fudge/ caramel/ burnt caramel nuances in the aroma but they seemed to get lost. OTOH I like the firm bitter finish that might have caused it them to get lost. Doesn’t justify its strength but runs it reasonably close.

SinH4 (4054) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2016 Bottle. Hazy reddish amber color with creamy eggshell head. Aroma is green apples, alcohol, sugar. Taste is green apple peel, sugar, ethanol. Oily mouthfeel. Way too harsh and alcoholic. Not good, it tastes like it?s mixed with schnaps. Did I get a bad bottle?

dambor (532) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2016
Pours ruby red, almost copper, with small head. Aroma: dried fruit, raisins, marzipan, some red fruit (cranberries?). Taste: figs, raisins, pretty high malty sweetness coupled with alcohol, but the hoppy profile counterbalanced well. Very good.
