Nøgne Ø: Sunturnbrew

This beer is divine.  If you can read the print on the label below, you will see that it is a peat smoked barley wine, aged in bourbon barrels.  It comes in a very little bottle, 250ml, but that is to the good. M and I shared one, and while we would have happily drunk more, we each had enough to get a handle on how good this beer is.  Very, very good.  The colour is a deep reddish brown, the peat smoke really comes through well, both on the nose and in the mouth.  There is that thick mouthfeel that you get from punchy strong beers, and the aftertaste is pleasant, with the bourbon aging coming through well.  Punchy, at 11%.
