It was a glass of lasts as we prepared to pour this one. I’d only been able to find three of the Nørrebro Bryghus beers and this would be our final sample of them tonight. Additionally, as we were now hitting 2:30 in the morning, this would prove to be our final beer of the night. By now we had landed on a final version of “Waiting for the Sun” and had run through “Tall Trees” by Matt Mays & El Torpedo and “Down By the River” by Neil Young. Fingers were sore, eyes were tired and sleep was soon. Not too soon, we grabbed our Korknys and headed for the couch to catch an episode of ‘Man vs. Food’, always a great way to end over eight hours of food, beer and guitar. At $22 for a 650ml bottle it was probably a good way to end things.

The pour was a bit silly, looking remarkably like a natural apple cider, completely opaque and lacking in anything resembling head. The aroma is sweet, caramel, brown sugar and booze, very inviting. The taste was quite sweet, lots of caramel and brown sugar, lots of booze and stone fruits. Extremely well done for a barley wine, sweeter than might be common but balanced and tasty. A good conclusion to a good night that saw me almost race through the halfway mark only four days into the month!

  1. Looks like you fell short of your 28 in 28 too… oh, I drank the beers, but I was just too lazy/busy to write about them. Must play music soon… I still have your 2006 hostage!
