COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Et bryg med rødder i 1800 tallets engelske og irske eksport stouts, der blev brygget med en højere alkoholprocent og blandt andet derfor vandt popularitet på så eksotiske steder som De Vestindiske Øer, Afrika og i dele af Asien.
Vores udgave er blandt andet brygget med brown malt, der var en almindelig ingrediens på den tid, da en stout var den stærkeste udgave af en porter. Sammen med ristet byg, chokolade malt og sort malt er det med til at give stouten dens sammensatte ristede karakter med noter af kaffe og bitter chokolade. Øllet får sødme fra 2 slags karamelmalt. Som modspil og til at afrunde maltkarakteren er brugt en klassisk engelsk humle. For at tilføje stouten et strejf af jul er den krydret med appelsin, kanel og mørkt rørsukker.
