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

(Bottle, 0.25 l, courtesy of VastActiv, 20141122) The beer poured brown and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had vanilla, liquorice and booze. Palate was full bodied and dry with mediim carbonation. Flavours were vanilla, smoke, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste had barrel and bitterness. A boozier version of the original.

Bottled 25cl (Vinmonopolet, AIH40)
Dark brown color, small beige head. Aroma is a bit cellary, woody, smoke, alcoholic with hints of toffee and malts. Medium-bodied. Strong alcohol, whiskey, wood, smoke and cellary notes. I think that barrel aging has not improved ths beer.

Bottle. Pours dark brown in color with a small off-white head. Upfront there’s some notes of charcoal, smoked vanilla, bit of peat and vinegar in aroma. Some roasted and sweet notes are present as well, there might be some dark red fruityness lingering beneath too. Tastewise there’s a nice mix of peat and vanilla with some notes of peppery spicyness at first. Bit of salty and smokey notes are on the move too. Bit of sweet boozyness in the end. As a sipper this works to a certain way, but I’d prefer the original Sunturnbrew over this one though.

dnicolaescu (2439) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 12, 2014
BOTTLE 25 CL from Cuningham. Look: dark ruby-brown, hazy, minuscule beige head. Aroma is intense, an eclectic mix of smoked prunes, whisky, more smoke, some acidity, nutty iodine. The bourbon is quite string, but well integrated. Taste: Fruit sweetness with substantial acidity, smoked prunes though the smoke is not as strong as in aroma.well integrated whisky, nutty iodine, not quite alcoholic but you can feel the warmth and spice. An interesting and unique, but bizarre beer. Needs getting used to.

lillmuffin (120) - Haugesund, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours Brown almost black colour with beige head. Roasty caramel smell. Sour lemon, blackberries, plums, smoke, rubber. This was surprisingly weird, but I have only tasted a pair of barley wines,
