Midtfyns Rough Snuff II

Brewed by Midtfyns Bryghus
Årslev, Denmark
9% Belgian Strong Ale | 108 Ratings |
Danish: ”Rough Snuff” er en Mørk Stærk Belgisk Ale tilsat krydderier som vil fryde enhver gammel fiskeskipper. Både kandis og rosinsirup er med til at give øllen sin fylde og styrke. Og for at kunne modstå selv den værste kuling, er der tilsat både blæretang og snus, der begge styrker blodomløbet. En rigtig svedig sag der bør være en del af provianten når man står til søs. Øllen er en videreudvikling af den opskrift som håndbrygger Erik Nielsen fik kåret som ”Sydfyns bedste håndbryggede påskebryg”. Det første bryg af Fishermann’s ale blev forbudt af de danske fødevaremyndigheder fordi der var brugt snus i øllen. På årets festival er det muligt at smage version 2, hvor snus er ersattet med bl.a. lakrids. Ver. 1 kåret som Årets Ølnyhed 2010 af Danske Ølentusiaster.
