COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: På det seneste har vi eksperimenteret en del med dobbeltmæskning – altså, at lave en øl på øl. The Days Of Barley And Roses er netop sådan en dobbeltmæsket øl. En fyldig og ganske potent maltbase er kombineret med en ikke alt for voldsom tilsætning af amerikansk Cascade-humle – for det var aldrig meningen, at dette skulle være et humlemonster. Og så lod vi det hele hvile fredeligt på et Niepoort portvinsfad i 11 måneder, hvilket efterlod et tydeligt men ikke overdøvende aftryk af egetræ. Dette er i udpræget grad en sidde-og-nyde-øl, en af den slags øl som er til stille eftertanke og refleksion – ikke til at hælde i halsen som fadbamser! Øllen er ikke opkaldt efter en film men efter et rockalbum. Ved du hvilket?

Leighton (18525) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2016
Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. Pours clear amber-gold with a foamy, white head. The nose holds dry wood, light cedar, beachwood. Medium sweet flavour with lots of dried fruits, pale wood, sugar, straw, apricot. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with more woody dryness, leathery berries. Tasty and nicely balanced.

500ml bottle. Somewhat dirty hazy redish-brown with small beige film. Aroma is port, wood, sweet syrup, chocolate, coffee, some charred notes and hints of red fruits. Taste is port, red fruits, dried fruits eg. raisins, slight wood acidity, some chocolate, a hint of roasted coffee and syrupy sweetness. The mouthfeel is rather smooth but with clearly niticeable alcohol, the carbonation is low and the aftertaste is lasting.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle. An almost clear one, dark amber in color and with a dense, finger-thick beige head. The aroma is a bit weak, but pleasant. Booze, caramel, dark dried fruits and a generic fruityness, with some oxidation and molasses. Citrus hints. It’s full-bodied, softly carbonated and a tad sticky-sweet on the palate. Caramel, dried fruits, molasses notes, citrus and pine cone notes and a faint boozy touch in the lasting finish. Quite wonderful this one. Tasteful and lovely. 150814
