Danish: Vi forventede måske nok, at de ville ankomme med flasker fulde af Bourbon og en banjo under armen, men intet af dette skete. I stedet endte vores brygdag med de smukke fyre fra Against The Grain Brewery i Louisville, Kentucky som én stor hotdog-spisnings-konkurrence. Yep, vi tager ikke pis. Den store Kentucky-fyr, Sam, udfordrede vores egen temmeligt store fyr, Jacob, om hvem der kunne spise flest af Johns fyldige og voldsomt krydrede gourmet-hotdogs. Men det skulle Sam vist aldrig have gjort... Men midt mellem alle drillerierne og den meget snak om pølser, så blev der faktisk brygget øl. Vi håber at du vil nyde denne humlede Imperial Brown Ale - den var designet til i særlig grad at akkompagnere hotdogs og anden krydret og røget mad.

English: We expected banjos and Bourbon but received nothing of that sort. Instead our brew day with the handsome fellers of Against The Grain Brewery from Louisville, Kentucky turned into a hotdog eating contest. Yep, no kiddin’. Big Kentuckian feller, Sam, challenged our own big feller, Jacob, as to who could down the most gourmet hotdogs, big and spicy as they were with specialty toppings. Well, Sam should never have done that….should you Sam? However, a beer was indeed brewed in between all the trash talk and wieners. We hope you’ll enjoy this hoppy Imperial Brown Ale - it was designed to go with hotdogs in particular and other spicy and smoked foods.

Ingredients: Water. Malts: Pale, Brown, Melanoidin, Biscuit, Chocolate. Hops: Herkules, Tomahawk, East Kent Goldings, Cascade, Simcoe. Yeast: US-ale.

Metallic taste, dough, brown sugar, allspice, sticky sweet, cheap chocolate, bitter grapefruit finish, metallic,… Bit too light. Empty & very simple, expected a lot more from this, lots of sugar & some metal. Not bad or anything but quite disappointing.

Cloudy, dark brown. Aroma of caramelised malts and quite a lot of hops too. Taste is rich and smooth. Full flavour with some burnt, caramel notes and perhaps a touch of smoke and pepperyness in the background.

Good yellow-cream head over dark, reddish-brown beer. Chocolate, wet wood, lightly roasted. Aniseed, fennel, and a bit of chocolate. Clashes, of course. Underneath malty, if roasted sweetness. Well-bodied, quite slick. Aftertaste is metallic bitter. I don’t like aniseed... hence...

Bottle. Amber-brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is caramel, toffee, biscuity malt, grapefruit. The flavour is toffee-like, biscuit malt, some sweeter grapefruit notes. Interesting, nice.
