This is what you get when you take a Russian Imperial Stout and mix it with an Imperial IPA, then force-feed it sugar until it can’t take any more. Then you put it into 2 different oak barrels that previously contained Bourbon. This is not beer or wine. It’s not spirit either. It’s inspired from America, born in Belgium and headed to outer space. It’s Mohawk Double Rocket , a Belgo-American Barrel Aged Barley Wine Style Ale.

Finn (6824) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2014
Flaske 375ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsdalen. Ekstremt dyp amber. Bra skum med litt farge. Varer en stund. Heftig aroma av sherry. Innslag av plommer & fiken. Smaken en kaskade av ulik frukt. Både sur og søt i en herlig blanding. En lurer på hvor alkoholen er blitt av men den kommer snikende med en behagelig tørrhet - og røde kinn. Kanskje i søtligste laget men denne kunne jeg tenke meg både til og som dessert.

Sigmund (6952) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2014
375 ml bottle, vintage 2012, from the Norwegian importer. ABV is 17.2%. Cloudy dark brown colour, moderate to low off-white to beige head. Intense sweetish and alcoholic aroma of molasses, bourbon, vanilla and oak, Very oaky flavour, again bourbon and vanilla, with loads of molasses, sugar and alcohol, also roasty and hoppy notes. Impressive in a way, but not harmonious. Not sure that I would buy this one again. *P.S.: As I finished the bottle, I have to admit that I somehow found the alcoholic warmth quite pleasing, as I slowly got used to it. There are also some notes of dark dried fruits that are quite nice.

Gorm (1899) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Mørk brun nesten sort farve med beige skum. Lukt av portvin, mørk frukt og rosin. Smak av sherry, kaffe, karamell, sjokolade og mørk frukt. Antagelig lagret på brukte eikefat derav smak av sherry og portvin. Søt og god. Vintage 2012. Vinmonopolet.

ClubGonzo (5568) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a murky deep brown body with a large, creamy off-white head. Nose is large boozy notes, wood, mild bourbon, brown sugar, caramel, resin and hints of toffee, figs, licorice and herbs. Taste is loads of alcohol, caramel, burnt sugar, resin, toffee and hints of wood, bourbon and pine. Full body, medium carbonation. Holy bananas, what a booze bomb! The complexity in the back really serves little to hide the onslaught of alcohol which is seemingly permeating every molecule of this crazy stuff. Maybe I’ll buy a bottle and try to mellow it out by cellaring for about 150 years, but then again: maybe not - it really isn’t that good. (Oh, if any admins are reading this: it’s pretty obvious that this is way more an American Strong Ale than anything else...)

yngwie (16715) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle, at Kristiansand Ølfestival. It pours a dark unclear brown body under a dense, finger-thick head. The alcohol is sure present, which isn’t surprising at 17.2%, but there’s also lots of room for toffee and chocolate. Some coffee and prunes chiming in. Warming, full-bodied and soft on the palate, with malty sweetness, toffee, coffee and some dark chocolate. Prune hints towards the warming, sweet finish. Too sweet and warming this one, but sure decent. 140823

Meilby (11108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle 375ml @ Kristiansand Ølfestival 2014
Pours hazy brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, oak, vanilla, chocolate, dried fruits and alcohol. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light to medium bitter with a long oak, vanilla, caramel and dried fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

nudiebear (321) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2014
Bottom of bottle poured at beer festival. Poured a murky, yeasty and unclear grey mud. Curtains on the entire glass. Smells strongly of alcohol with woodsy notes. Tasted mostly alcohol and a slight burning on the tongue, but improved with each sip to have a good sweetness and berry notes. Enjoyable, but I would have liked to tried a better pour of it.

Nydelig duft av flere frukter og en anelse citrus. Brun farge. Tynn hinne skum. Nydelig smak av frukter med en lang ettersmak.
