Once a year the the Danish Beer Enthusiasts celebrates "Øllets Dag" - Day of the beer. This year they wanted something special. Together with the founders of the organization, we made a recipe based on a classic Belgian Dark Ale. Ølfabrikken AA is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and bottle conditioned like all of our beers.

Big bottle (ChrisO Pre-GBBF2011 "Donkey Dork Lord" Shindig)
Amazing old ale or barleywine aroma. Raisins and sugar cover the 8% well. Stunning rich and balanced barley wine. So much raisin. Brilliantly aged to perfection.
