COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Englænderne bombarderede København i 1807. Var det årsagen til at man mere end 100 år senere etablerede den kunstige ø Flakfortet for at forsvare hovedstaden ? Det er spændende forsvarshistorie. I dag er Flakfortet en velbesøgt turistatraktion med egen restuarant. Der huserer sågar et spøgelse på øen. “Helmuth” rumsterer rundt i tide og utide.
Denne Brown Ale er brygget til ære for Helmuth og inspireret af de englændere, der gjorde tilværelsen usikker for københavnerne i mange år. Og den bliver serveret der ude på Flakfortet. Den er brygget på bedste engelske vis af alemalt, chokolademalt og lidt ristet byg. En rigtig fin og alsidig øl til frokosten.

I honour of my godfather Helmuth; dark brown body, tiny tan hue. Malts, caramel malts, sweet nuts, grainy soupy hops to the nose. Caramel malts, chocolate malts, nutty chocolate, cocoa but not coffee to the tongue,. Alright body, not too heavy, soft carbo. Well brewed. Finish with dark malts, slightly bitter too, but in a pleasant way. * Brown 50cl btl abv5.7% b@Vinmonopolet Langnes Tromsø T@home.

tfredvik (947) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 14, 2014
Clear, dark brown body with a copper tint. Large, creamy, quite dense, light-brown head that leaves a lovely curtain of foam on my glass. Moderate aroma that is dry and that mainly consists of lightly roasted malts and coffee. In the back some faint fruity notes and traces of yeast. Quite strong flavour, again with the same coffee/fruit mix. Some sweet hints in the taste, but not much, this is dry from the start to the moderate to light bitter end. Pleasant mouthfeel, mid-bodied, moderate to lively carbonation. Not particularly exciting, but I guess that’s how a brown ale should be.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 28 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål, Oslo]

Mørk brun farge med lavt skum. Noe anonym aroma av røstet malt, vag tørket frukt, humle og litt krydder. Sjokolade, røstet malt, tørket frukt og noe krydder i smaken. Medium konsistens. Rund og god, men litt kjedelig. Vag bitterhet i ettersmaken.
