Gresskarøl er en plage å brygge. Mesken blir som en tykk grøt som det tar en evighet å sile av. I denne ølen brukte vi tørkede biter av gresskar. Avsilingen tok 7 timer. Men litt gøy var det likevel!

Pumpkin Ale is a nightmare to brew. The mash becomes impermiable and it takes forever to collect the wort from it. In this beer we used dried pumpkin. The runoff took 7 hours. We still enjoyed it though.

Foffern (1654) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy reddish brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma of dried fruit, coffee, oak, nuts, pine and grassy hops. The flavour is similar with oak, nuts, cocoa and pine. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and balanced bitterness. I don’t find the pumpkin in this beer, but is anyhow filled with hops and malt. Well-balanced.

Rating #1700!
Pours a very deep copper body with an eggnog head that sticks around for quite some time and leaves lots of lacing on my glass. Malty and strong aroma of sweet caramel, dark caramel, grains and lots of fruits. Strong flavour of dark caramel, roasted malt and dark fruits (I guess this is the pumpkin), with a background of chocolate, dark dried fruits, ash and alcohol. Light to moderate sweet taste with a moderate to light bitter finish. Medium body, smooth texture and moderate carbonation. A nice and complex beer.
[50 cl bottle, batch 1481, enjoyed 1 year after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Arendal]
