Starka överjästa öl bryggs på många håll i världen. I Belgien finner vi väldigt komplexa starka öl men även på de Brittiska öarna går traditionen att brygga en värmande fyllig öl långt bakåt i tiden. Slottskällans Strong Ale är en öl i brittisk anda. Den fylliga söta smaken balanserar den höga alkoholen och ger ett komplext och fruktigt öl. Som all öl från Slottskällans Bryggeri är denna öl opastöriserad för att behålla alla smakerna.

Aroma and flavor is sweet and malty, with an strange ashy tinge. Why do they make such a beer? Clearly, however, that this is not my kind of beer!

My bottle expressly states 2009./ numrerad upplaga FWIW Good beige head over clear foxy-amber beer. Rich malty nose, with brandy-like alcohol touches; spicy-leafy aromas, like holly or even bog myrtle. Roasted, even smoked/smoked ham flavour overlying lightly toasted sweet (egg)bread. This is just perfect balance between two pretty extreme flavours. Fruity background, dried prunes or figs. Well-bodied, slick, oily, alcohol more prominent than expected from 6.7% ABV. Many thanks to Jens Duvel!

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2009
Caramel, some nougat and grain on the aroma. Slight edge too, probably the alcohol. Smooth and full in the mouth, roasty and nutty. Gets thinner towards the end with a touch of hops perking things up.
