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.

(Amager / Against The Grain The Great, Big Kentucky Sausage Fest ) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 7.7% Brown coloured body, quite clear, with one finger of tan head, with good density and retention. Aroma has spicy hops, biscuit, chocolate notes. Taste also of chocolate, biscuits, light toffee, quite bitter all in all, nice hoppy touches on the finish, some spices. Medium body with good carbonaion. Nice.

Pours caramel-colored, opaque. A few flecks in suspension. Aroma is malty and sweet. Lots of dark roasted malt and alcohol burn in the flavor. Medium body.

sarauckelman (260) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Hazy muddy brown with a lot of particulate matter; minimal tan head. Sweet aroma with hints of vanilla bean. Sweet and strongly alcoholic flavor with a bit of smoke. Very complex with different feels all over the mouth, ending with a harsh alcoholic buzz.

MarcoDL (2788) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle. Brown color, white head. Aroma of passion fruit, hop and brown nutty malt. Taste of fruity hop, hazelnut, malt, some pine and banana-ish yeast. Strange beer, hard to pinpoint. Not bad, but a little top yeasty.

Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy deep brown with a frothy and creaym bornwish beige gead that leaves some sparse trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty, herbal and earthy with dark bread, caramel, grapefruit juice, resinous wood, moist grass, pine needles, dry tobacco, orang zest and lemon zest. Taste is slightly sweet, bitter, malty, herbal and easrthy with dark bread, caramel, grapefruit, moist grass, pine needles, resin, liquorice, tobacco, orange zest and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is soft, round, astringent, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with caramel, toffee, grapefruit, moist grass, pine needles, resin, orange zest and lemon zest. Very hoppy and bitter ASA. Enjoyable kick in the teeth...

500ml bottle - thanks Kairi!
Very weird aroma, dirty, stodgy, a bit grainy, caramel, husks, but messy and dirty. Anna gets stale coffee. Slightly soapy taste, plenty of caramel and husky grains. Rabbit food. Nice brown, large tight orangy tan persistent head. Palate again a bit stodgy, probably melanoidin malts. Husk brown ale taste, a little bitter. Later there’s some chocolate in the finish too. Kinda passable brown ale, but very messy.

Thanks, John Mays, for the gift --- Hazy brown with a solid 2" beige head, sheet of lace. Taste is strong malt with a heavy shot of chocolate, followed by noticeable hops that move to a finish that has overtones of grass and hay, with perhaps a bit of smoke. Not well-balanced or connected, leaving it short of expectations.

Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours really dark copper with a yellowish tan head. Smells like a nutty amber. Med body or so. Flavor is nutty, somewhat roasty malt, and notes of chocolate. Apparently a strong nutty brown ale. Not my favorite sort of drink, but the ABV seems helpful, and the nuttiness isn’t very greasy. Certainly drinkable. There seems to be enough hop to render it towards bitter, and it even moves towards dry. Bacon would have been a good touch. :)
