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

In short: Some dry dark ale.
Pours dark copper with little tan head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Caramel, malty, raisins, liquorice aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, slightly oily texture. Taste is quite sweet, plums, raisins, liquorice, little buttery notes. Lacks more diacetils and maybe has a bit more carbonation than expected for a sotch ale. It becomes some dry with ripe fruit flavours, like some other scandinavian fruity sour ales (i’m thinking of Rhodette or maybe Tornerose).Quite peculiar brew.

Bottle, thanks to Plovmand, cheers mate! Light haze on this deep red - amber beer. Small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and slightly soft, semi dry. Mild fine carbonation. Unsweet caramel toffee malts, slightly thin. Marmite accentuated molasses. Mild dried fruits and a little spice round things off. Rich if a tad dry.

hopscotch (9503) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and copper with a small, creamy, white head. The faint aroma hints at caramel and dates. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor supplies heaps of caramel and a generous measure of hoppy bitterness. Unlike most Scotch ales, this one is more bitter than sweet. Bottle generously provided by Plovmand!

MichaelAwesome (4566) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2014
Von Bamsen gespendet und mit McTapps geteilt. Stark und dick mit einer ordentlichen Portion an Früchten, vor allem Pflaumen. Hierzu noch ein netter Bumms an Alkohol, etwas erdigen Hintergrunds und ein paar Nüssen.

Bottle from trade with Bamsen79 - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep dark brown colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of raisins and barley. Taste pf roasted barley, malt, raisins, rum, plums, prunes, trof and leaves. Quaffable and smooth finish. Nice beer.

Mörkbrun med litet ljusbrunt skum. Doftar maltigt och sött. Smakar mycket karamelmalt och lite alkohol. Fyllig och som en barleywine?

Countbeer (4725) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle: Thanks Papsø: Served in Chouffe glass: Small vanilla creamy head on top of a hazy deep dark orange to brown colored beer. Aromas of malts, prunes, tobacco, barley malts, raisin, toast, soap, some dried leaves, light nutty and light alcohol. Flavour is bitter, malty, cacoa, some spice, prunes, toast, dried leaves, barley malts, toasted malts, herbal toast and bitters, light nutty, lighter earthy with a light dry tint. Aftertaste is malty, bitter, toasty, nutty, light dry... Low carbo, creamy oily almost silky mouthfeel, more than medium bodied and a creamy light dry texture. It’s ok, but nothing more.

MiP (13788) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle, 9.4%. Weak malty aroma. Almost clear red chestnut colour. Stable off-white head. The flavour is sweet and malty with a mild raisin sweetness. A good oxidised note suits the raisin well. Medium bitterness, quite clean.
