COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Internt på bryghuset har striden raset længe: skal en Imperial Stout være rå, potent og voldhumlet - eller skal den i stedet være blød, blid og imødekommende? Med King Of Kentucky var det for en sjælden gangs skyld sidstnævnte fløj, der vandt det battle. Vi bryggede en helt ny Imperial Stout fra bunden, som var en lille smule sødere end normalt og mindre bitter. Den har så fået lov til at hvile sig i 5 måneder på helt friske bourbonfade fra Kentucky, hvilket har tilføjet krydrede vaniljetoner og et strejf af egetræ. Resultatet er ganske fornøjeligt og særdeles harmonisk. Vi må dog samtidig advare mod at undervurdere kongen her - han sparker bagud. Og vi kan ikke anbefale, at man konsumerer mere end tre flasker på en aften.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle. A dense, tan head of finger-thick size forms over a black body. Some lacing. The aroma is very chocolatey and quite coffee-ish, with a nice boozyness, some molasses, dark sugar, a touch of coconut and a faint woody hint. It’s full-bodied, warming and very smooth on the palate, with lots of dark flavors. Dark sugars, caramel, chocolate, some booze and a nice sweetness in the flavor, all lasting for a good while. Quite wonderful this one, wouldn’t mind drinking more of it. 150814
