COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Som enhver der har mødt ham ved, så er salgschefen her på stedet lidt af en fartdjævel, som forvandler sig til en filipensbefængt provinsteenager, så snart han sætter sig bag et rat. Det kan være sådan lidt småproblematisk, når han sidder i vores varevogn med lasten fuld af gode Amager-øl. Men til hans ære er denne øl blevet kaldt ”Burnout”, for hans notoriske trang til at give den gas og brænde noget gummi af – den lille møghvalp…
Og brændt er ”Burnout” saftsuseme - eller måske snarere røget. Traditionelt er røgøl enten af tysk Bamberg-stil eller af britisk karakter, hvor det er tørverøget malt, der dominerer. Som altid gør vi intet halvt på Amager Bryghus, så vi har både anvendt 44% tysk røgmalt og 44% britisk røgmalt – så vi er ikke i tvivl om, at dette nok er noget af det mest røgede, der nogensinde er fremstillet herhjemme. Burnout bør derfor kun nydes, hvis du har dobbelt udstødning på dytten eller skorsten i hjemmet!

Black bodied and surprisingly light coloured head. Small smoke, soy sauce, a bit of coffee. The smoke is Peat like and although small it defined the beer. I do like the hop backup to put things into place. Certainly not overdone. Drinks easier than the abv promises. Lovely mouth feel. This promised to be my kind of beer, and indeed it is. Smooth low carbonation, nice smoke, drinkable dark body, clean enough yeast. (50cl bottle from De Hopduvel)

Backlog. I have a hard time with smoked beers, the smoke is usually way too overpowering, now i understand that it’s somewhat of the point, i wish it was more balanced though.

StoutHead (661) - DENMARK - NOV 9, 2012
It’s been a while since I had this one at a beerfestival, but I’m still talking about it. I can’t remember much about the taste itself, but it was SO smoky that even after 5-6 porters and stouts I could still taste it. Very intense and I’d like to try it again.

Clear and very dark brown beer. Decent off white head. Nose is of smoke and a little rubber (very apt label on this beer). Light softish palate, dry. Smoky rubbery malt with a little hop spice and bitterness to finish. Perhaps the sight of spinning car wheels on the label is too evocative but this tastes like fermented tyre shreddings!

Bottle (batch 195)@ home. Almost black colour with some ruby redness shining through, small off-white head. Smells smoke, peat, whisky, malts and sweet. Mostly peat. Tastes a lot of peat (and reminds me of whisky), rubber, smoked. Full body, nice carbo.
