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.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2011
Draught @ Olfestival 2011 Kobenhavn. Brown beer with small off-white head. Sweet malty aroma, lots of anis and licorice. Very strong licorice flavour, dry bitter finish. I geenrally don’t like licorice that much and here it is no exception as it is ery overpowering.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2011 On tap at Ølfestival 2011. A clear, brown beer with a minimal sized off-white head. Sugar, raisins, prunes, some caramel and candi sugar on the nose. The flavor is sweet, with dried fruits, caramel, a touch of yeast and then some spiced hints. Full-bodied and lighlty warming, finishing quite sweet. Nice, but a bit ordinary. Rating: 6-3-7-4-14-3.4. 110527

Bottle. It’s a clear, dark reddish brown beer with a finger-thick, dark beige head leaving lacings. The aroma has a touch of sweetness, a good dash of licorice. Dried fruits and some roasted malts. Sweet, full-bodied and warming with flavors of licorice and dried fruits. Some roasted malts too. A pleasant bitterness chimes in towards the warming, licorice-ish finish. Overall, really pleasant and tasteful. I even like the warmth. 110827
