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

Keg, as part of North Bar (Leeds)’s 15th birthday. Pours a murky, coppery brown. Aroma is utterly stunning - smells like an opulent smoking room. Leather with a tobacco note from the smoke, and bourbon. German/polish sausage, caramel, figs, dark fruits as well. Taste is caramel/toffee, with dark fruits, figs. Plenty of bourbon and oaky vanilla. Oh, and a lot of smoke, too, defenite sausage-y taste. As rich as a barleywine, with the same alcohol kick, too. Long, lingering finish that’s impressively balanced, given how f*cking batshit crazy this stuff is. Ridiculously good, with one of the best aromas I’ve ever had in a beer. Great stuff.

Piwo ma kilka lat. Vintage +/- 2013. Bardziej wędzone niż podstawa. Bourbon przykryty przez wędzoność. W tle ciemne, suszone owoce, bardziej w stronę śliwek. NIe wiem czy ten kwasek, którego nie było w podstawie to jakieś "sour edition".... Pijalność wysoka, lekko rozgrzewa. No nie wiem jak to podsumować, na pewno fajna stabilna wędzonka, lekko torfowa, na początku wchodzą słodkie klimaty, później lekki, przełamujący kwasek. Fajny balans i ten bourbon. No powiedzmy, że ten kwasek zamierzony.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Notka z untappd: Wow, to jest kwaśne! Kwaśne, wędzone, owocowe, torfowe, kapitalnie bourbonowe. Napisałbym że pewnie piwo miesiąca, ale niedługo Kopenhaga :)

25cl bottle at home. Pale dark brown with a small off-white head. Full body with low carbonation. Well balanced sweet and bitter tones. Caramel, malts, smoke, bourbon, chocolate and coffee. Good stuff!

50 IBU. Bruin bier met rode gloed en weinig schuim. Geur: gerookte banaan, vanille, botermelk, cola prik. Smaak: licht zuur, geturft, zeer vineus. Wrange combinatie. Niet mijn smaak.

Bottle. Tasted almost three years ago. Beer is complex, roasted, smoked, nice bourbon barrel notes. Tasty.

Rating #2256 - 2015.12.15 - Draught @underground_yeg. Pours a midnight black in colour with a minimal tan head that fades quickly. Distinct smoky, vanilla/toffee aroma oozes out. Very unique body, medium alcohol warmth, predominant smokiness on the palate tempered with the dry, bitter roast malt character of the stout. Bourbon vanilla comes through splendidly, and yet the smokiness is still the star. Wondrous.

kajser27 (1806) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 4, 2016
Dark brown to black colored, small beige head, floaters. Aroma is peat, wood with barrel sourness, bit bourbon, vinous, some caramel and dark fruit notes,light roast. Taste is medium+ sweet malt, caramel, dark fruits, moderate peat, salty, wood, some bourbon barrel and sourness, burned-peat more pronounced in the finish and dominates the aftertaste, some alcohol and warmth, aggressive. Medium+ bodied, soft to flat carbonation, sticky. Salty peat, sweet caramel/fruit and sour wood... not a combination I like. (bottle, Bierhalle Deconinck, Vichte)

(Nøgne Ø Sunturnbrew Bourbon Barrel) Bottle 250 ml received from a trade with Cuso a couple of years ago, many thanks Imro! Served into a snifter, ABV 11% Dark brown to almost totally black colour on the body, with a small and a bit thin light beige head on top, with lo retention, eventually leaving a thin line of foam around the glass. Aroma has plenty of smoked malts and peat, light alcohol, nice notes of bourbon. Taste is sweet with a faint touch of acidity, plent of smoke, peat, bourbon, alcohol, light vanilla, some dark fruits. Medium thick body with soft carbonation. Very good, 250 ml was too little for this one.
