Hornbeer Caribbean Rumstout

Brewed by Hornbeer
Kirke Hyllinge, Denmark
10% Imperial Stout | 427 Ratings |
Danish: Vi har brygget på denne øl i lang tid. Nu synes vi selv, at den er som vi ønsker. En meget kraftig stout med brændte toner fra ristet bygmalt, røgmalt, kaffe, en smule krydderier og som prikken over i’et: en sjat rom og herefter lagret på egetræ. Denne øl må gerne gemmes flere år i et mørkt skab eller en kælder. Men den kan altså også drikkes nu. Køb en ekstra flaske og gem den til en særlig lejlighed om nogle år. Den vil udvikle sig som god vin – bare blive bedre og bedre i mange år.
Drik den i vinglas til søde desserter, chokolade eller uden noget.

English: We have brewed on this beer on a long time and we finally think it is a should. A very majestic stout with a hint of roasted barley malt, smoke malt, coffee, some spices and to top it all a drop of rum. The beer has been seasoned on oak wood. This beer can stored many years in a dark closet or cellar, but is also ready to drink when it leaves our brewery. Buy an extra bottle and stash it for a special occasion in some years. It will develop like a god wine- only get better and better by the years.
