Danish: Hidsig American Barleywine. Brygget i anledning af en af ejernes næstefødte – skal kunne holde til at blive gemt i 15-20 år til hun kan drikke den.
For nogle år siden blev I præsenteret for “Krogsaa” i anledning af en familieforøgelse i ejerkredsen af Ølbaren. Nu er den gal igen, og atter har Amager Bryghus fået opgaven at frembringe en øl til afkommet. Krogsaa 2 er brygget til en pige, derfor har den en meget hidsig bitterhed! Det er en “American Barleywine”, dvs. en aldeles voldsomt humlet barleywine, på 11%. Den er brygget i juni måned, og det meste af den friske, blomstrede humlesmag er derfor væk nu. Tilbage står en kraftig sødme, og en meget kraftig bitterhed!

English: Brewed to celebrate the second offspring of one of the owners of Ølbaren, this American Barleywine has a fierce bitterness from excessive use of hops.

TheEpeeist (3328) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Unlabelled 50 cl bottle with an Amager cap, likely about 2 years old. Cloudy dark brown with beige froth. Nose is bubblegum, candi, orange peel, plum and grass. Medium body with a tingle. Taste is raisin, caramel, faint bitter chocolate and faded grapefruit hops. Nice depth of sweetness countered by bitter citrus, slightly metallic. Obviously quite hoppy once but now nicely melded.

yngwie (13350) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2011
On tap at Ølbaren. It pours a clear, dark brown to copper body under a dense, creamy, beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is nutty and caramel-ish, with some alcohol. Dusty, piney hops and some raisins too. Caramel, roasted malts and resiny hops in the flavor, lasting for a really long time. Smooth, warming and full-bodied. A pleasant and tasteful beer, indeed. 110527

Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Hazy dark amber color, with red shades, and a creamyhead. It has a very strong aroma, yeast and cheese over all; maybe malt and hops too, but really hidden. At least the flavor brings us immediately in the realm of American Strong Ales or American Barley Wines; the first evident difference is that this beer is actually quite smooth, silky, even with its superpowers; there is an almost overwhelming flavor of malt, caramel, roasted malts and hops; chocolate comes to mind, liquorice is present too (and rather evident); quite amazingly there is a very hidden strawberry note; the cheesy impression is also there, candi sugar and a generic fruity touch too. The final is extreme, the mouth is almost burning for the extreme hops, nevertheless the mouthfeel is velvety till the last drop. Interesting, very good.

ClubGonzo (3993) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2011
On tap, shared with Yngwie and Gunnfryd @ Ølbaren, Copenhagen. Deep bronze body, big creamy off-white head. Aroma is toffee, sweet malts and hints of nuts. Taste is sweet malts, wood with hints of strawberries and roasted caramel. Bitter, earthy hop tones get in the mix towards the end of the palate. Very nice.

Christian (11055) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2011
Hazy red amber with a lasting off-white head, leaving lace. Aroma of malt, bread and red berries, and hoppy notes of pine and grass. Sweet biscuit malty flavour with vineous fruit, and warming alcohol. Hoppy and very bitter aftertaste.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - JAN 7, 2011
Draught at ølbaren. Dark Brown with a redish glow and a small baige head. Nice toffee malt aroma with some leftover floral hops. Sweet toffee malt flavor backed up by a huge bitterness with an ashy feel to it. The alchohol is quite strong and adds to the bitterness throughout the finish. Great beer
