COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Brewed by Djævlebryg at Brøckhouse, Hillerød, Denmark.

Brewers note: This beer is NOT brewed as an American Pale Ale. It is not brewed to suit a certain style which is why we call it a "hoppy ale".

English: Both the British and Americans are good at using hops - in slightly different ways. We have combined the best from both traditions and created Schopenhauers Vilje ("Schopenhauer’s Will"), a beautiful amber coloured ale with a floral character, caramel notes and - like the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer - a good portion of bitterness. This brew can be enjoyed on a hot summer’s day, a cool evening or accompanied by e.g. poultry dishes.

probstblueribbon (3062) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2009
50 cl. Bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear copper with a nice light tan head. Aroma: A good dose of rather citrusy hops, with mainly deep orange peel, a little grapefruit, toffee and caramel malts, rye bread crust, some molasses and light licorice, some dark dried fruits, a bit of pine, very typical for the style, I think. Palate: Medium+ body, moderate carbonation with small, fine bubbles. Flav.: Much like the nose, with plenty of marmalade, some sweet amlts, some dark dried fruits, molasses and licorice, brown/burnt sugar; off-dry with good bitterness, some pine hops and brown sugar to finish.

Quite nice for the style.

On tap at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Quite mild beer, seducing hops, light body. Quite a contrast to their more extreme beers.

espenra (884) - Kurland, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2008
50cl bottle from Barley Wine. It poured a amber colour with a huge white foamy head that settled down slowly in the glass. The aroma is inticing and seduces you with the fresh scent of hops and some unidentified spices. It is highly tempting just to sit there with the glass and enjoy the aroma all day (or night) long. The flavour suprises as first with its bitterness and spicy tones, but soon the hops makes its precense known and you realize that this in fact completes the aroma. The sip ends with a nice lingering aftertaste after you swallow leaving you wishing for just one more sip. I really liked this beer alot. Oh, and in case I did not make it clear, I liked this beer alot and everyone, including their dog, should run out and purchase a bottle or two.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Draught at EBF 2008, Copenhagen. Mid amber with a good hoppy aroma. The taste is likewise dominated by the bitter flavours but it has a soft, easy palate.

Bottle at EBF. Hazy copper, thick and nicely lacing pale head. Sweet molassy nose, plum, some hops and spiciness. Smooth malty flavor with nutty ice-cream and prune. Little hops in the finish. Almost full bodied, smooth carbonation. It felt more like a Belgian ale.
