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

750 ml bottle. 2011 vintage. Thanks Timo A.
Pours a dark brown colour with a white head. Aroma of rich English toffee, vanilla beans and cotton candy. Flavour of rich toasted malts, English toffee, grass, dark chocolate, raisins and bread. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a strong, rich, quite sweet finish. Could be a Belgian Strong Ale as well. A nice and rich winter-warmer.

Corked bottle, courtesy of Humlelala
Dark color, almost black, with brown rim; it has medium sized creamy head. Nice and mild aroma of roasted malt, treacle and firewood. Medium body strength, good flavor of caramel, some roasted malt, roasted nuts, also some oxidation; the residual sugars are very limited. The bitterness is correct.
Quite good.

Sampled at Papsoe’s, not sure who shared it. Deep brown color, light head. Sweet and estery aroma, very estery taste, a bit thin. My notes are limited but I think I enjoyed this one overall.
