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.

Smell of sesame oil. Taste a bit as well but with roasty malts. Nice but not exceptional.

0,5l botle Appearane: Allmost clear copper colour, wih a rich offwhitehead., leaving good amount of lacing. Aroma:: Biscuits, rye bread, chocolate , some smoke and ash and in the background oranges, caramel,. Tastte; grassy, grain, caramel, , orange peel,pine needles and tropical fruit,, before it finishes with rye and chocolate roasty malts and a hint of ash. full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Odd taste combination, and here and feeling a bit harsh, but still overall a very nice experience and one of a kind. Allthough it could use some refinement here and there. But for me interresing enough and good enough to see if I can find a second botle.

Cool_Bond (1240) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2014
Caramel and hints of roasted malt. The taste is slightly fruity with a lot of bitter taste. Good bitterness in the aftertaste that sits down in the upper part of the mouth for a long time. A moderately good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

omhper (19216) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2014
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Almost clear copper colour, rich head. Biscuits, tropical fruit and grapefruit up front. Mid sweet with full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Lots of tropical fruit and grapefruity hops, solid body with lots of caramel. Very bitter finish. Harmonious, but heavy. Too heavy for spicy food, more a meal in itself.

Flaska från systemet - maltig doft med en lite touch parfym. Kastanjeröd färg med lätt beiget skum. Tydlig men bra beska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

På flaska från systemet. Brun och grumlig i färgen med en fingerhög skumkrona. Luktar svagt av frukt och citrus. Smakar aningen fruktigt med en beska som ligger kvar länge i gommen.
