COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Brøckhouse Julebryg har det hele. Brygget med en belgisk overgær og med hele fem forskellige malte og sukre: Pilsnermalt, hvedemalt, aromamalt, chokolademalt og rørsukker. Smagen er dyb, varm og fyldig, med en tydeligt chokoladesmag. En ægte klosterøl med duft af julens faste ingredienser som figner, dadler, nelliker og abrikos. Der er brugt bitter humle: Nothern Brewer og aromahumle: East Kent Goldings. Brøckhouse Julebryg er lagret i tre måneder og kan sagtens gemmes i op til ti år. En øl der passer perfekt til den fede danske julemad. Serveres med 10-12 grader.

English: Brøckhouse Christmas Beer has everything. It is top-fermented with Belgian yeast and brewed using four different sorts of malt and cane sugar. The taste is profound, warm and full with a distinct touch of chocolate. This is a genuine Abbey Ale with all the fragrances of Christmas: dates, figs, cloves and apricots. The hops are Northern Brewer and aromatic East Kent Goldings. Brøckhouse Christmas has been stored for 3 months and will keep easily for up to 10 years. It is an ale that goes excellently with the traditional Danish Christmas fare. Best served at 10-12 degrees celsius.

Vintage 2007. Opened on May 31st, 2012. The beer opened up very lively. The beer pours a rusty rootbeer brown with no head. The nose has a very distinct sandalwood smell with cinnamon, clove and black licorice. This beer is light weight mouth feel. The pallet is light red fruit, a bit of grape. The beer finishes with a carmel/light burnt sugar and molasses flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
