COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Kære børn, læn jer tilbage for nu skal vi fortælle jer en hemmelighed. Ved I hvor julemanden kommer fra? Nemlig, han kommer fra Amager! Ikke Nordpolen, ikke Lapland eller Grønland, julemanden kommer her fra Amagerland! Til daglig hedder han Kurt og er gartnerimedhjælper ude på Tømmerupvej. Han har noget af en tyk mave, som han selv blot betegner som et sjældent voldsomt eksempel på overkarbonering. Uden for sæsonen græsser Kurts rensdyr ude på fælleden, hvor de løbende bliver malket og mælken brugt i en eller anden juleost, der vist sælges sådan lidt under bordet. Men altså, en dag kom Kurt Julemand forbi bryggeriet og stillede os en opgave. Kurt er vild med nisseøl, bortset fra, at der altså mangler lidt spræl i dem, som han siger. Vi ved godt, at for Kurt er spræl lig med procenter. Så han bad os brygge en nisseøl med spræl. Og det er altså den du sidder med i hånden lige nu, verdens første Imperial Nisseøl. Den er brygget til julemanden og til alle jer børn og barnlige sjæle, som stadig tror på ham og på det gode øl. Rigtig glædelig jul!
Amager Julebryg 2009 er af type en Imperial Nisseøl på 8% eller måske en American eller English Strong Ale, whatever. Den er det rene maltparadis med masser af Münchner-, chocolade- og mørk karamelmalt, og så rigeligt med brunt sukker og rørsukker til den søde tand. Gæren er en diskret en af slagsen, mens humlen er britisk Fuggles, som ikke efterlader mere end 15 IBU. Til gengæld lod vi krydderierne helt og aldeles forblive på Amagerhylden - så INGEN krydderier tilsat! Nyd den til nissegrød og alle andre af julens retter.

77ships (4215) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2014
50 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from De Hopduvel. // BBF 12/2014 (so this is good, cool!) // Dark furniture red amber, tanned head only on the sides. // Nose is sticky syrupy oxidized molasses, cough syrup, dark fruit, leaves, strong liquorish, fermenting red berries,… // Taste is varnish, oxidation, furniture, leaves, liquorish upfront, wood, light overripe dark fruits,… bit empty afterward, finish is mouldy & wet autumn leaves, bit off-putting,… // Bit light body. // Some rather strange flavours going on here like mould, lots of varnish etc. At this point all of those could be because of (very likely they are because of) the age / oxidation so there is that. Still not bad at all overall but it was very likely better fresh, people who are into oxidation / vintage beers. Still surprisingly nice even if nothing all like what I expected it to be.

Bottle (50cl). Slightly unclear, dark reddish brown colour. Finger-thick sticky offwhite head, some lacing. Aroma of malt, plums, figs, cookies, caramel. Full body, soft carbonation. Medium sweet, fruity/malty taste with some acidity (that becomes more dominating in the finish), mild bitterness. Good balance.

suprchunk (2313) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Brown with ruby highlights. Small off-white, almost tan head. No lacing. Smells bready with a roasty spiciness. Taste bready, malty. Thin with a bitterness in the back. Pretty quaffable beer. A little too carbonic. Lacking in many ways. Might be due to the age on it. Still drinkable though.
