Danish: Måske fornemmer du det allerede, når kapslen fjernes og næsen sættes til flasken – denne ”Stout” dufter anderledes, end hvad du er vant til. Vi har nemlig tørhumlet den sent i processen med de ædle amerikanske humler Nugget, Centennial og Cascade, som giver de blomsteragtige toner, der lægger sig oven på de karakteristiske Stout-kendetegn af brændt malt og giver både lethed og friskhed. I glasset fremstår Sundby Stout kulsort, mens skumkronen er tæt, lysebrun og næsten cappuccinoagtigt cremet, mens tungen fornemmer både maltsødme og antydninger af bitter, mørk chokolade og engelsk lakrids. Sødmen får dog kvalificeret modspil i den hårdt ristede malt og den flækkede, umaltede og ristede byg, der begge er med til at give øllet dets brændte præg. Sundby Stout er en klassisk ”Stout”, som alligevel godt tør være anderledes og udfordrende.

English: Maybe you feel it already, when the cap is removed and you put your nose to the bottle - this " Stout " smells different than what you are accustomed to. We have dry hopped this stout in the late stages of fermentation using the American noble varieties of Nugget , Centennial and Cascade, which allow the floral tones that make this a characteristic Stout - flavours of roasted malt give both lightness and freshness.
The glass appears Sundby Stout black , while the head is tight, light brown and almost cappuccino creamy, the tongue senses both malt sweetness, hints of bitter dark chocolate and English liquorice. Sweetness, however, cleverly balances the hard roasted malt and the split , umalted and roasted barley , which both help to give beer its roasted flavor. Sundby Stout is a classic " Stout ", which nonetheless dares to be different and challenge convention.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt , hops, and yeast
