COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alugod er en stærk, belgisk inspireret mørk kloster ale, der med sine ca. 10 % alkohol egner sig særlig godt til at varme de forfrosne vinterkinder. En varmende ro vil sprede sig i kroppen. Alugod tager afsæt i belgisk brygtradition og er en helt exceptionel ny sæsonøl fra bryggeriet. Smagen er udpræget maltet med en behagelig krydret duft. Elementer af chokolade og blidt underspillede noter af kaffe bringer denne øl op mod det guddommelige. En let parfumeret, behagelig humleduft præger endvidere øllet.
Denne øl er brygget af brygger på Skovlyst Peter Andersen. Dette er hans svendestykke. Tag (Alu)godt imod det.
Alugod stod der på et smykke fra den danske jernalder (200 e.kr.) fundet her i Værløse. Runeforskere og studerende i etymologi er kommet frem til to betydninger af dette. Den ene er, at det skulle være navnet på ejeren, hvilket må siges at være den mest plausible. Alu betød bitter og refererede til øl. God eksisterer faktisk i sin oprindelige form i dag og navnet er altså Ølgod hvilket indikerer, at hun enten var en god brygger eller en god dranker.
En anden fortolkning af Alugod er Alu som nær og god som gud altså nær gud. Således døber vi denne øl Alugod på grund af navnets to dejlige fortolkninger.

Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2008
Draft. A deep red beer with a slight hazy under a lazing tan head. The aroma is powerful and very sweet with strong notes of berries as well as medium notes of alcohol. THe flavor very sweet with strong notes of alcohol, that ticles the tongue, palate, and cheeks, as well as notes of yeast and brown sugar, leading to a finish containing light notes of prunes and spices - especially cloves and cinnamon. One of the best beers from Skovlyst.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2008
(Growler 100 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Clear, orangey brown with a small, off-white head. Aroma of fruit, burned caramel and alcohol. Very full-bodied with lots of dried fruit, burned caramel and roasted malt. The finish is dry with a subdued bitterness. Excellent! And really deserves a higher average. Sort of a "Belgian" Barley Wine. 260208

omhper (19670) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2008
++Draught at European Beer Festival, Copenhagen.++ Clear nut brown. Concentrated orangey licorice aroma. Sweet and full bodied. Full flavoured with marmelade and licorice, fruit and caramel, aniseed and grain. Almost no Belgian style yeast character, but certainly with enough interesting stuff anyway.

Bright brown color. It has a nice fruity touch, both aroma and flavor, sweet caramel flavor, strong body, correct bitterness; the alcohol is well hidden; truly Belgian. Interesting.
