COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: ”Rough Snuff” er en Mørk Stærk Belgisk Ale tilsat krydderier som vil fryde enhver gammel fiskeskipper. Både kandis og rosinsirup er med til at give øllen sin fylde og styrke. Og for at kunne modstå selv den værste kuling, er der tilsat både blæretang og snus, der begge styrker blodomløbet. En rigtig svedig sag der bør være en del af provianten når man står til søs. Øllen er en videreudvikling af den opskrift som håndbrygger Erik Nielsen fik kåret som ”Sydfyns bedste håndbryggede påskebryg”. Det første bryg af Fishermann’s ale blev forbudt af de danske fødevaremyndigheder fordi der var brugt snus i øllen. På årets festival er det muligt at smage version 2, hvor snus er ersattet med bl.a. lakrids. Ver. 1 kåret som Årets Ølnyhed 2010 af Danske Ølentusiaster.

DraftDodger (725) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2016
Copenhagen 17/1 2016. 50 cl bottle from Føtex. Some maritime gear on the label to signify that this beer should be part of your provisions when you are going sea faring. Pours hazy opaque dark brown with red tinge and small off-white head which dissipates quite quickly. Leaves only thin patches of foam. Aroma is overwhelmingly sweet with licorice, syrup, alcohol swollen raisins and some sharp notes of spices. Fizzy carbonation and thick oily palate. Taste follows the nose. Very sweet with sugary syrup, sweet berries, a little coffee bitterness, licorice, a little boozy alcohol and something spicy providing some balance against the Wall of sweetness. Aftertaste is syrup, cognac and alcohol. A nice one to speed up digestion on a sunday night.!

KoNrRiI (961) - Århus, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2016
0.5 bottle. Hazy, very dark brown color and a small, off-white head disappearing almost instantly. Aroma of coffee, tobacco, and not much else. Taste is filled with coffee, tobacco, hints of alcohol warmth, and some spicy notes. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is a tad too alcoholic for my taste. Overall, the beer is rough as the name would suggest, but beyond an apt moniker it holds neither much merit nor drinkability.

TorbenJensen (1408) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2015
Rough Snuff II is the legitimate version where the real snuff is replaced by a type of snuff which is produced from apple and corn. It does not have much flavor, but the taste is, however, very top. Lovely deep mouth feeling of dark roasted malts with a sharp spicy aftertaste, probably from snuff. How the added seaweed tastes I can not judge, but it has little smoked over themselves and little sense of the sea and salt water. It is not surprising that it won the award as Best Beer in Denmark 2010, it is a fantastic ale that I fell for immediately.

DerGantzel (215) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2015
Strong coffee aroma. Chocolate, licorice and roasty too. Not as much licorice than the first edition with snuff. Dark, but clear. Medium sweetness and light bitterness - not as powerful as the first edition. Creamy texture, soft carbonation, and a long finish. I have tasted this parallel with the original version, and this number 2 is not as powerful and tasty. But still a good beer by Midtfyns Bryghus!

Dark red - amber beer, good pale tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, modest fine carbonation. Thin creamy malts. Something like sweet cappuccino in the background. A cooling mellow medicinal vibe. Sweet semi dry finish. Interesting snuff! Geddit? I’ll get me coat!

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2015 Meget spændende øl, men mange gode smagsnuancer. En øl ud over det sædvanlige

PapaVillum (764) - Valby, DENMARK - APR 28, 2015
50 cl, flaske, 9,5 % ABV, BB: 13/08/2015, købt i Eurospar på Nordre Fasanvej i Valby (nedlagt), 28. april 2015. Brun/sort ufiltreret Belgian Strong Ale med 3 cm stor moccafarvet og tætskummende skumkrone. Smukt udseende. Kronen svinder langsomt til elegant kant og overflade. Sikke en duft, der spreder sig! I første omgang en vinøs sødlig aroma af svesker og blomme, men også noter af brændt malt. Senere dominerer lakrids, mørk chokolade og en smule røgmalt, Uovertruffen smag af både porter og Barley Wine i ét! Let til medium sødme, medium bitterhed. Derudover er smagen krydret henad en Herb Ale, som også bifaldes herfra. Rund, stor og fyldig krop med en meget fin justeret karbonering på nogle niveauer under medium. Konsistensen er tyk og klæbrig. Afslutningen er sødlig, bitter og lander en smule tørt, men har stadig en lang lækker eftersmag. Jeg er kort og godt meget imponeret over dette "håndbryg", ligesom jeg kan forstå, juryen i Ølentusiasterne har været i 2010. Tak til Midtfyn for at lade en håndbrygger komme bredere ud!
