Danish: Denne gang har vi lavet en stærk øl efter belgisk forbillede. Den er brygget på pilsnermalt og to slags karamelmalt, cara munich og cara aroma. Udover malten har vi tilsat en stor portion kandis, som bidrager både med en god karamelsmag og øger alkoholprocenten. Humlen vi har brugt er first gold, som giver en moderat bitterhed til øllet. Gæren vi har brugt er en belgisk gær og den er gæret ved 25 grader i 14 dage. Derefter er den tappet på flasker og har siden da lagret ved 8 grader. Mængden af alkohol og den begrænsede humling gør dette til en meget sød og vinøs øl med masser af varme fra alkoholen. Den bør nydes ved 8-12 grader, enten for sig selv, eller eventuel som ledsager til gode oste. Den kan med fordel gemmes i flere år, da dette vil gøre den endnu mere fyldig og vinøs.
Da dette er en øl med ”krudt” i, er den selvfølgelig opkaldt efter krudttårnet, som er byens ældste bygning på voldterrænet ved Østerstrand. Det blev opført i 1675, og benyttes nu som udstillingsbygning.
