Una Barley Wine ahumada envejecida durante un año en barrica de bordón. Nogne sin duda de mi Brewery preferidas Marduk (7695) - 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. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 3, 2014
250ml bottle - thanks VastActiv and the rest of the Hel crowd!mjs (7413) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2014
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.
(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.

Pours dark brown with a tiny head. Aroma of smoked malts, wood, oak, bourbon and vanilla. Taste is sweetish, tartish and smoky with loads of wood, oak and vanilla. Finish is woody, oaky and smoky with hints of leather and vanilla. A bit unbalanced.

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.
Red-brown color, beige head. Coffee nose, roasted malt, dried fruit, wood. Light smoked taste, cured meat, sweet malty, hint of alcohol, moderate to heavy sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation. RexTalionis (3765) - FINLAND - OCT 31, 2014
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.
