COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Med vores særbryg Batch One har vi vovet os ud I et eksperiment, hvor vi lufter vores forkærlighed for en solid maltprofil i kombination med delikat, amerikansk aromahumle. Batch One er en ”American Strong Ale”, som karakteriseres ved sin store fylde og generøse mængder humle. I glasset fremstår øllet med en rødbrunlig, kobberagtig glans, mens det beigefarvede skum efterlader en pikant blonde i glasset. Vi har i dette bryg valgt udelukkende at anvende den ædle Simcoe humle både i kogningen og i den efterfølgende tørhumling. Humlen giver øllet dets friske, citrusagtige karakter og efterlader tillige en solid bitterhed, som dog får kvalificeret modspil i den sødlige karamelmalt. Amager Batch One er en potent øl, som godt tør vise sine muskler både i den varmende alkohol og i dens udprægede bitterhed.
Bitterhed: 80+ IBU

English: With this special brew, Batch One, we dared to experiment with combining our usual devotion to a solid malt profile with the addition of American aroma hops. Batch One is an American-inspired Ale characterized by its vast, full body and generous use of hops. In the glass, it has a reddish-brown colour with a coppery glow, and a beige-coloured head leaves a nice lacing behind. For this brew we have chosen to only use the noble Simcoe hop, both for boiling and the following dry-hopping. The hops give the beer its fresh citrus-like character and impart a solid bitterness to balance the sweet caramel malt.
Bitterness: 80+ IBU

Foffern (1190) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2013
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. The colour is hazy dark reddish amber with a creamy light beige medium head. Sweet aroma of fruity hops, peach and berries. More fruity hops in the flavour with some grapefruit. Still pretty sweet. Has a slick and rich mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. Is a balanced and nice ale.

S_Side_Smitty (448) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours a hazy amber-brown with a thick off white head. This one is definitly English style with a heavy malt aroma, a little age, & some savory spice components. Maybe a little yeast, too. Taste is milk chocolate malts that really come out in the mid palate. There’s a peppery bite throughout and a bitter finish. This one is very comfortable.

Dogbrick (7973) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Sample at the Aficionado’s "Hidden Gems" beer tasting on 05/24/2013: Pours a reddish-amber color with a medium thick creamy light beige head that diminishes slowly. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, nutmeg and citrus. Medium to full body with flavors of bready malt, ripe fruit, spice and resiny hops. The finish is fruity and malty. Above average overall.

AirForceHops (3118) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 27, 2013
550 ml bottle purchased @ Julio’s Liquors back in December 2012. Dark muddy red/ brown color. Aroma is sweet and very malty with noticeable Simcoe pine. Taste was actually much like the nose, tons of caramel malt and a sharp hop edge created from the Simcoe. Strong notes of pine with a resinous kick of bitterness. Taste is medium to full bodied, balanced carbonation. I feel the hops really dominated the malt and the resin is a bit harsh. Had I let it get more age, perhaps the hops to malt ratio would balance better. Right now a bit harsh.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2013
Bouteille 500ml. De couleur ambrée-orangée foncée et voilée. Nez malté de caramel sucré aux notes terreuses et rôties, de houblon fruité (agrumes, léger de marmelade), moyennement résineux, légèrement citrique, floral et herbeux. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture moyennement huileuse et légèrement résineuse. Goût moyennement amer de houblon fruité (agrumes, moyen de marmelade, notes d’abricots), légèrement citrique aux notes herbeuses, florales et résineuses (une amertume de houblon présente toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt sucré du genre caramel sucré, léger de toffee terreux avec des notes de biscuits, de grains de malt sucrés et rôtis. En finale, l’amertume de houblon se fait plus intense, en affichant un caractère plus herbeux, résineux et aux notes asséchantes en plus d’être appuyée par des notes d’alcool. Post-goût long et un peu sec, moyen-amer de houblon résineux, fruité (zeste d’agrumes, notes de marmelade), légèrement citrique et aux notes florales avec un résiduel de malt sucré (caramel) aux notes rôties.

jmgreenuk (4258) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Poured a dark chesnut brown with a thick off white head. The aroma is rich, fruity and alcoholic. The flavour is big fruity, alcoholic bitter, The alcohol dominates, but its not overpowering. It’s a lovely heart warming beer. Well worth tracking down.

Dorwart (2372) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Thin head of varying sized bubbles that does not last long. Strong caramel and cherry aroma with some brown sugar, roasted grains and some earthy aromas. Color is a dark copper brown. Rather strong bitterness and bite to this brew. Dried flowers, straw, tea leaves, piney hops, dry toasted malts and some more brown sugar. Body is much thinner than I expected, pretty much too thin as it doesn’t really have any malt body to offet the alcohol and bitterness. Noticable alcohol presence and warming. Little astringent palate which leaves a dry and chalky mouthfeel. Finishes hot and dry. Ok brew but not digging this too much.

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle from Haskell’s only $5.99! Pours red amber and hazy with a sudsy frothy head that slowly settles to film and lacing. Aroma has nice caramel malt and hops blended well. Taste has decent dry dusty hops which show a little bitterness and then the caramel malts take hold and blend well. Palate is medium sticky and chalky. Enjoyable!
