COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Alstærk er den ene af to heste, som trækker Sols vogn hen over himlen. Vognen bliver styret af Mundilfares smukke datter, som er opkaldt efter solen.
Alstærk blev kåret som den bedste øl ved DM i håndbryg 2011 og vandt desuden andenpladsen ved det skandinaviske mesterskab i håndbryg 2011. Alstærk er en stærk Skotsk Ale, som gæres ved lavere temperaturer end de fleste ales for at fremhæve maltbaggrunden. Den er brygget med 6 forskellige malttyper, hvilket resulterer i en kompleks maltbaggrund som balance til den høje alkoholprocent og det lave indhold af humle. Fynske Claus Christensen fra Munkebo Mikrobryg er Danmarks mest vindende håndbrygger, som kombinerer traditionel ølbrygning med nutidens naturvidenskab.
Ingredienser: malt, humle, vand, gær, maltekstrakt og sukker.

First batch brewed at Ørbæk, late 2013 the brewing was moved to own equipment

Look; tan top, dark fine ruby body. Aroma; fruity cream, blended in malts, milk, fruits. Taste; malts, red berries, wood, nuts, milk, fruits - leading to a nutty malty finish. On palate good n soft. Overall; okay+ beer. [33cl br btl abv9.4% BB.03.2020 #77 B@Kvickly Middelfart DK, shared with Rune]

Rune (10905) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2015
Thanks to djoeye for sharing a 330ml bottle, #77. Ruby-dark reddish body colour. Decent fawn coloured head. Fair lacing. Smell of marmalade, sherry-like. Sweet malt-fruity flavours, caramel malts, sherry, and dried fruits. Sweet ending. Rather heavy to drink. Nice, warming sipper, however, far too sweet for a higher score (Tromsø 11.10.2015).

giacomo (2) - , NORWAY - OCT 7, 2015 does not count
Medium dark Brown, medium carb. Aromatic, some nutty notes, marzipan, plasticine and dark chocolate. Full body, a bit sweet with some bitternes. The alcohol is a little unbalanced. Nice length. Good beer, but expects a lot after the smell...

flemmingwillum (1184) - Nysted, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2015
Rating #1090, flaske fra Voldby Købmandsgård. Lækker, tyk, mørkebrun ale med kaffe, ristede malte og et hint af røg. Tyk og cremet; lidt for meget kulsyre. Fin øl.

larsga (7215) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2015
Small beige head. Clear deep red body with carbonation. Earthy toffee and wild berry aroma with butterscotch and toasted grain notes. Sweet roasty butterscotch taste with fruity spicy notes. Full-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Sweet roasty earthy peppery aftertaste with fruity chocolate notes. Wow. Amazingly rich and flavourful, yet soft and easy to drink. (0.33l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)
