COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Maelstrřm is gebrouwen ter gelegenheid van het 10 jarige bestaan van de SNAB. Terugkijkend in de geschiedenis van het brouwen komen we het verschijnsel van moeder-dochter bier regelmatig tegen. Deze oude brouwmethode, waarbij men gebruik maakte van één zelfde storting om meerdere bieren te maken, is de basis voor onze Maelstrřm (9,8 %) en Snab Pale Ale (6,3 %). Door de zware storting na te spoelen verkrijg je een steeds minder zwaar bier. Om puur praktische redenen worden beide bieren nu apart gebrouwen. In ons streven om vernieuwend te zijn op de Nederlandse biermarkt zijn we hierin ook met de Maelstrřm weer geslaagd. Speciaal voor de liefhebbers van droge, hopbittere bieren is deze American Barley Wine ontwikkeld. Door gebruik te maken van Cascade en Amarillo hop en het toepassen van "dry-hopping" heeft dit bier een zeer uitgesproken karakter gekregen. Water, Pale Ale-, Kristal en Münchener mout, Cascade en Amarillo hop en gist.

Good brew from the beer geeks from SNAB. Warm and full taste with lots of maltyness.

jmgreenuk (4249) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle at the De Molen July 2nd Tuesday tasting. Poured a clear chesnut brown with a frothy white head. The aroma is rich yeast malt and alcohol. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with yeast and lots of liquorice on the palate and well into the finish. A heart warming barley wine.

Clear dark amber, lasting beige head. Overripe fruit, raisins, quite some bitterness, rather dry, medium sweet. Would have liked this to be better.

Countbeer (4389) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium to smaller sized, pretty vast and slowly changing creamy light vanilla ish colored foamy head on top of an almost clear to light hazy red orange to ruby ish colored beer. Looks good. Aromas of hops, flowers, some hop fruit, cream, barleys, light diaper, light creamy herbs and milk/lactose. Flavours of barleys, cream, some hop fruits, good and growing bitterness, light dry, light vinous, spices, yeast, creamy herbs, creamy hay and creamy grains. Aftertaste is a mix of barley malts, spices, dryness, grains and (bitter) fruit. Low carbo, soft creamy thicker mouthfeel, good medium to lightly fuller body and an oily texture. A lingering bitterness and a firm dryness, not bad but expected just a bit more from this beer...

sic1314 (3217) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2013
Poured a reddish brown with a very small head.. Aroma of sweet dark fruit and caramel malt. Medium to full body, flavour as per the aroma with the red fruit coming across as alcohol soaked. Bitter but quite sweet end.

33 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 06.11.2010
Aroma is barley wine ‐like with ripe fruits, caramel, some hops and hints of alcohol. Flavour feels like a strong ale with toffee, some fruitiness, caramel malt and slight boozy feeling. Not your typical BW.

ogreface (1344) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 25, 2012
Meggypiros színű, sűrű folyadék a tetején sárgás színű, krémes állagú habbal. Illata komlós, fenyős, édeskés, karamellás és zöld növényes és bogyós gyümölcsös. Ízében is érezni, hogy nem sajnálták tőle a komlót, de ott a karamell, élesztő és piros bogyós gyümölcsök, amik hatására az egész keserédes, kissé fanyar és boros lesz. elég testes és kevés szénsavval rendelkezik. Utóíze is egy félédes borra hajaz. Érdekes és szép kis árpabor.
