COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Fur Christmas Ale 2012 er en kompleks julebryg af typen Belgian Strong Dark Ale med amerikansk humle. Den er tappet i mindre end 8.000 flasker med fortløbende nummer.
Her er muligheden for at gå på opdagelse i en verden af sanseindtryk: Oplev karamelmalten, der giver det cremefarvet skum, den mørke ravgyldne farve, den sødmefulde duft og fyldige smag af karamel. Den mørke muscovadosukker, også kendt som lakridssukker, tilfører udseende, duft og smag ekstra nuancer af lakrids. De amerikanske humletyper Centennial og Cascade giver den citrusagtige aroma der, forstærket af tørhumlingen, skaber balancen mellem bitterhed og sødme. Gæren, den belgiske strong ale type, udvikler duften og smagen i vinøse toner. Den er årsagen til den potente alkoholprocent på 9,4 % vol., som forstærker den fyldige og varmende smagsoplevelse. Denne smagfulde julebryg passer perfekt til de kraftige juleretter, ikke mindst på grund af den friske kulsyre, der virker rensende over for den fyldige julemad.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2015
500ml bottle, vintage 2014, bought at Barley Wine in Copenhagen more than a year ago. Clear amber coloured body, tiny beige head. Spotty lacing. Smell of brown malts and apricot, mid-sweet. Comprehensive taste of dried fruits, caramel, brown sugar and cinnamon balanced by dusty hops towards the finish. Soft in the mouth. Warming down the throat. Full bodied. Pleasant and not overly sweet (shared with Finn and Vegard, romjulslunsj, Tromsø 30.12.2015).

jesperhammer (4186) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2015
16-DEC-2015, bottle @home, from Meny. Amber, clear with a low tan head. Very nice aroma of malt and spice. Taste is more complex with dried fruit, bread, and a Little hops. Quite alcoholic, full body, medium- carbonation. This is one of the best traditional X-mas brews. (Did not realize that it was a Belgian Strong Ale. Now I can see why it is alcoholic and has bigger body than usual).

En god juleøl. Den skal smage af jul, men afdæmpet, og det gøre denne. Den har en lille smule krydderier og er afdæmpet i humlen.

oh6gdx (25388) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Bottled. Orange colour, small off-white head. Aroma is liquorice roots, some zestiness as well as muscovado sweetness to it. Flavour is rather similar, but also has some slight sweetness from the alcohol. Lacks a bit of yeasty/spicy notes, otherwise this would have been a nice BSA. Would need something to hide some of the alcohol in the flavour.
