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.

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.

A hoppy ale with a fresh taste. The palate is gentle and the flavor is bitter, a tad edgy and energy giving. Maybe not spectacular, but my favorite of the Djævlebryg.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 50 cl bottle. Amber color, off-white head. Hoppy aroma. Flavor is hops and sweet malt, fruit. Bitter finish. Maybe a bit thin, but a great APA.

Very nice aroma with floral and hops. Pours orange cloudy (Unfiltered) with nice off-white head. Medium sweet with full body. Lots of Hops and OK bitterness. Will drink it again!
