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

Medium amber, slight head, little bit of haze. Doughy aroma with a touch of raisin. Full body, caramel, deep fruit, raisin, apricot. Complex and really quite awesome.

bottle from Plumpjack BOTM club.... poured into a Delirium Noel snifter. Beautiful pour - deep caramel / reddish brown color with a thick 2 finger off white head which finally collapes to a small lacing. It really doesn’t get much better than that. Nice Simcoe hop presence on the nose, but falls a bit short of the expected. This beer is an absolute wonder over the palate... nice huge body with caramel malts, spicy citrus hops dominating the front and back, some lighter fruits lingering and an overall abundance of good old American hops. I was instantly impressed by Batch One and thank Plumpjack for including this beer in their Beer of the Month Club. Unfortunately I cannot purchase this beer in GA, so it looks like I’ll be adding this one to my want list to savor again.

Flaske. En lækker duft af blomster breder sig i stuen efter øllen bliver åbnet. En udemærket uklar farve og et pænt skum, men det er foreløbig duften der stjæler billedet. Lige indtil den første mundfuld. Lækker karamel med honning og en blid overtone af blomster rammer min mund. Herefter er der en smule bitterhed, men øllen har helt klart haft rigtig godt af at ligge et halvt års tid. Super afbalanceret og ganske fortrinlig.

Looks fantastic. Big puffy tan head, doesn’t want to disperse. Very deep copper/amber colour. Slightly hazy when held up to the light. Aroma is simply fantastic. Very floral, some sweetness, then pepper, reminiscent of celery. Don’t call me crazy, but from a distance the aroma is ripe almost like ripening strawberries. Wow! The flavour is very complex, VERY complex. This a serious hop attack! Gorgeous. There’s some ginger, I’m sure there’s almost nuances of peat flowing through it, roasted malts, peat smoke almost. Some caramel. Treacle. This beer could certainly be aged if so desired, but I’m afraid life is a bit too short on this occasion. I’m sure there’s sweet malt in there, I just can’t get past the hops. Palate is great, soft, lush and creamy. Wonderful beer. I’m seriously digging these guys. They are kings of beer.

mensch (246) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Brown and thick with a creamy ecru head. Kinda chunky at the bottom. Wonderfully full aroma of sweet toffee, sherry, and raisons. Those notes follow onto the palate, quickly overtaken by a firm, pleasant bitterness. Big mouthfilling barley wine flavor coupled with enough hops to really shine without overpowering. I’m not getting a lot of the hop aroma that they’re talking about, which is good because Simcoe is always way too oniony for me. I love a tasty barley wine, this one adds a little nuance and doesn’t disappoint.

Pours cloudy orange with a creamy cream peach colored head. Smells malted with some floral notes and sour cherry tobacco. Tastes very bitter with some cherry flavor. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Amager Batch One finishes with some solid bitterness.

Plovmand (6303) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2008
Bottle. Pours mahogny with big creamy beige head that lasts forever. A beauty. In nose citrus, pines, caramel, peach, melon and other fresh fruit. Medium body. The taste contains notes of citric fruits, sweet malt, exotic fruits and a long bitterness in the end. The alcohol is very well hidden and I just want another sip all the time. Great job!

Nice aroma, malt, hop and parmesan, sweat. Good body strength, good caramel flavor, enough sweetness, powerful hopping, with resins and some sweetness. Very good.

Cloudy amber color. Strange aroma, with caramel, hop and paint thinner. Good body strength, strong sweet caramel flavor, warming alcohol, strong hopping of good quality, with some interesting resins; but as another beer from Amager tonight, it has a very light starting infection...

2008-04-06, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 8-5-8-5-16=42
Hazy amber color. It has a deep fruity aroma, with piney resins. There is a good body, with caramel flavor, not much sweetness, and a very powerful citrusy and resiny hopping. Excellent
