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

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.

75cl Bottle @ Carlsens Kvarter, Odense. Pours dark unclear amber with a creamy head and lacings. Vinous and rich nose. Dark fruit, brown sugar, caramel and chocolate. Quite complex. Flavor is a bit boozy. Alcohol is a tad too upfront. But overall very nice - in a way it reminds me of a good dark trappist. Smooth and full bodied.
