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

Viper666 (2787) - 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.

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 (2424) - 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 (2019) - 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!

Steve_0 (3268) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle at home. 2011 Vintage. Pour is murky cola with a small white head that quickly dissipated; decent lacing. Aroma is big sweet fruits, licorice, strawberries, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and a touch of bourbon. Taste is big raisins, figs, toffee, caramel, light roast, a touch of grapefruit, candi sugar, and orange peel with a light bitter finish. Sticky/creamy mouthfeel with high carbonation. Above average barley wine, but nothing that will blow you away.

From a 50 cl bottle. Pours a hazy brown with an off white head. Aroma of caramel and fruity hops. Notes of toffee with a hoppy bitterness.. Nice.

TheJestersBeer (2200) - SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2012
Bottled. Off-dry, medium to full bodied, high bitterness. Malty, hoppy taste, lightly sour, quite yeasty. The alcohol is very pronounced, this beer is not very balanced. (2009-09-25)

nuplastikk (4957) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2012
16.9oz bottle, aged the better part of a year in my closet. Unfiltered brown-red color, oily off-white head, some soapy edges. Assumably the hops have faded a little, which is unfortunate. There is some mild earthy bitterness, but way more rich caramel, bourbon candy like boozy sweetness. While it does have the rich resinous hoppy feel of a good US Barleywine, there are also mellow, malty fruity ale tones not unlike an Old Ale. Significantly thicker and deeper in color as i poured out the second half of the bottle, giving it a creamier, yeastier mouthfeel. Quite a nice Barleywine!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Rich amber color with a shallow froth. Good lacing. Faint aromas of sweet malt yet defined briskness. Full nectar with good carbonation. Silky texture, balanced flavor with a bit of heat, mildly sweet with a bitter hop finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MadDogMD (213) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle from AJ’s Arcadia. I’d classify this more of a barleywine style. Good hoppy, caramely, sweet nose. Tastes similarly- sweet, syrupy malts balanced with a big, citrusy, hop kick. As good as any American strong or barleywine here in the states, but lacking in complexity. Good overall, though.
