COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our 100th batch, brewed for the enjoyment of the brewers, but popular demand forced us to release it commercially. Most enjoyable in a comfortable chair in front of a roaring fire.

Recommended serving temperature 16°C/61°F Ingredients: Maris Otter, wheat, and chocolate malt; Columbus, Chinook, and Centennial hops; English ale yeast, and our local Grimstad water.

23,5°P, 80 IBU, 10% ABV.

Editor’s note: Even though the label says "Barley Wine" in the States, the brewery usually says it’s brewed to be an IIPA. The American label was supposedly a glitch. In Europe it’s sold as an IIPA. But to save the admin crew some time dealing with user feedback, it’s listed as a Barley Wine.

Partagée avec mon cher Appiantiqua dans un verre "3 loups": belle robe cuivrée surmontée d’une mousse ivoire moyennement persistante avec une faible carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des arômes houblonnés avec des notes IPA et des pointes de vieil aclcool nous amenant en bouche un ensemble très harmonieux avec une bonne amertume qui reste en finale .Un barley wine avec sa petite touche IPA bien plaisant!17,5/20.

Dégustée avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre"Les 3 Loups". Température de début 8 ° environ. Belle robe cuivrée sombre surmontée d’une mousse de couleur ivoire et de persistance moyenne; faible carbonatation. Le nez évoque immédiatement une IPA avec une teneur très houblonnée mais aussi des arômes de type vieil alcool. Le goût balance nettement du coté de la douceur avec des saveurs boisées mais une amertume bienvenue vient équilibrer l’ensemble qui affiche une certaine complexité. La finale est longue et plaisante avec le retour des houblons et des notes de fruits confits. Barley Wine ou IPA???? peu importe! c’est délicieux! 17,5/20

NORSAND (105) - Lillestrøm, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2017
(Batch #1740-A, brewed 4 Jan 2017) Dark red-brown with a fairly long lasting, light beige head. Nose: Medium dark malt, crystal malt, boiled beef, beef broth, some pine. After some minutes of airing, more hops aromas come out; hay, pine resin. Gradually more and richer malt notes also appear. But it’s a young beer (4 months). I think the nose would benefit from another few months of cellaring. Taste: Smooth, richly carbonated, almost creamy. Well balanced. Obviously a solid dose of hops but the richness, the ABV and the sheer density (technically dry matter, I guess) balance it all out. Perhaps a bit much hops for a barley wine but then I don’t think this was ever made to fit into any pre defined category. Towards the exit there is a noticeable, malty sweetness, accompanied by a reasonably dry hoppiness. A tasty and rich beer, albeit a bit young and "unfinished". The total impression is off-dry but i think that as this beer ages, the hops will gradually subside and allow more sweet malt to the fore. So I’d expect that in a year or two it might taste semi sweet.

Interesting that the brewery says there’s a glitch and it’s being listed as a barleywine when actually it’s supposed to be a double IPA. I don’t pick up any indications of a double IPA at all and it’s an extremely smooth barleywine I guess.

Mörk brun-röd, ogenomskinlig, orange-ljusbrunt skum. Doft: Humle, burkfrukt, alkohol, malt, lite apelsin, lite trä, exotisk frukt. Smak: Som doft + kanderat socker, dadlar, tamarind, lite fikon. I doft underbar, i smak så gott som perfect. Smaken påminner om min Barley Wine.
