COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amerikansk Strong Ale. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad ale med kraftiga citrusaromer från användandet av amerikanska humlesorter och en speciell humlingsteknik kallad Hop-Bursting där man tillsätter kontinuerligt ökande mängd humle för att ge en kraftig humlearom. Humlesorterna är Amarillo, Brewers Gold, Cascade, Chinook, Columbus, Northern Brewer, Saaz och Simcoe. Den kraftiga humleprofilen balanseras av en rund och mjuk maltighet som kommer sig av användandet av mycket Mynchenermalt. Detta kompletteras av Pilsner-, Crystal, och Pale Chocolate malt. 2009 års version bryggdes hos Sigtuna Brygghus.

Bov (9429) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 27, 2009
courtesy of Per - pours a fully cloudy ruby-brown colour under a solid beige foam; nice lacing; nice balance in the nose between a fair hop presence and toasted chocolatey malts; notes of herbs and licorice too; some robust sweetness and a full malt body, quite velvety palate; a fair bitterness lasting long in a chocolaty and licorice finish - robust and heavy stuff

omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2009
Bottled. Cloudy dark brown, rich head. Orangey licorice aroma. Medium sweet with medium-full body. Really hoppy with perfumy grapefruit and licorice. Powerful lingering bitterness. Lots of hop power hidden in chocolatey malt.

Bottled. Dark ruby-brown colour with pale brown head. Orangey hops, with chocolate in the background. The hop biterness set in pretty early, whereas the maltiness feels a bit subdued, but there is slight nutty maltiness due to the munich malts. Citric hops dominate, in the background a pleasant chocolate is found, along with wood in the finish, plus some alcohol. The bitterness feels really striking, and the beer feels to be pretty dry, maybe because of the hops. Great beer!

OleR (4799) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2009
0.5 L bottle from Systembolaget. A fingerthick khaki head over a near black body with ruddy edges. Aroma of rounded roastedness and toffee/caramell A pleasant and distinct hoppy smell, too. Medium to full malty, well roasted, with coffee and chocolate notes. A generous amount of fruity and light resinous hops is there to balance. Well-bodied and quite palate-coating. Hop bitter and roasted, malty ending. A very nice one, potent and tasty.

hirigalzkar (2282) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2009
Bottle. Lots of citrusy hops. A malty background of coffee and some licorice. Bitter aftertaste. A very american strong ale.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2009
Very dark brown, tan head. Mothwatering hoppy aroma. Pine and forest, like a liquid Christmas tree. Hop juice, but there is a malty body rising to the challenge. Pepper and spearmint, too.

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2009
Flaske: Rødbrun øl med et fint skumhoved. Duft af engelsk humle og candy. Smagen er fint balanceret, men ikke så humlet som jeg havde håbet på. Alt ialt en udmærket men lidt kedelig øl der ikke rigtigt bliver forløst.

deflagro (106) - Lund, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2009
Bottle. Dark, reddish, clear liquid with a medium-sized, off-white head. Aroma is rich and malty with some notes of coffee, caramel and ginger, but also with a distinct hop aroma. Taste is a bit sweet and malty with some notes of caramel and spices and a certain fruitiness. Bitter, a bit unbalanced finish with some odd roasted notes. Not bad, although I don’t quite like the finish.
