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

Svesse (8286) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2015
(Bottle) Dark brown colour with brief, beige head. Malty, smoky nose with notes of black rye bread, bourbon wood, liquorice, soy sauce, smoked ham, hints of chocolate, peat smoke and a touch of red wine. Malty, smoky, vinous finish with black rye bread, oak wood, vanilla, liquorice, soy sauce, peat smoke, some chocolate, orange peel, hints of red wine and a vinous, peaty finish with a slight acidity and a balanced bitterness. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Soft and velvety mouthfeel. Quite complex but, in a way, all over the place. Interesting and really nice.

The_Osprey (7621) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2015
250ml bottled July 2012. Dark red, opaque, small ring of off-white head. Aroma is lemon sherbet, sherry. Body is light, foamy, low-ish carbonation. Taste has smoke and bourbon up front, and then some sherbet sourness, TCP. Smoke and tart fruit is the general impression. Dry, acidic finish. Seems more like a red wine and whisky aged beer than bourbon. Nice.

Vignale (3593) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2014
Flaska från SB 2012 drucken med ölföreningen. Läst att många flaska som kom till SB 2012 blivit sura och hade därför inga högre förväntingar. Inte riktigt så illa som befarat. Lite syrlig men svårt att avgöra om det är pga av en infektion. Istället är den astringenta smakbilden det som drar ned betyget. Lite syrlighet, lite rök, lite fat, lite beska som stör och känns lite oren och smakerna är dåligt integrerade och eftersmaken lite beskunken.

Nice fizz on smokey beer. Some pepper in the back. Alcohol hides well. Good beer

Cruzer (103) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
This is the first smoked beer that I have tried, and it was pretty unique. Heavy smoke and wine aroma, with a sour, malty, and smoky taste. Really good aftertaste, reminds me of smoke bacon, in a good way.

Marduk (7022) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 5, 2014
250ml bottle (tasting @VastActive place, thanks). Hazy copper color. Small size head, disappears. Smoked, malty, sweet, winey notes in aroma. Sourish, malty, sweet, smoked taste. Weird one.

250ml bottle - thanks VastActiv and the rest of the Hel crowd!
Smells heady, and a little sour, and with very rich sweet malts. Dark, almost no nead. A bit weird, and definitely hot in the mouth. Anna thinks its better integrated than I do, to me it’s a bit hot, and the aging hasn’t mellowed it enough. Sour aspect a little off-putting.
