COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gråskägg (5,2 %) är vår tolkning av en vinteröl. Den kan närmast beskrivas som en lite rökig porter med generösa mängder karamellmalt och chokladmalt. Humlen är endast Bravo. Resultatet är en mjukt chokladig svart ale med en rejäl beska som balanserar upp sötman. Man kan även ana en lätt rökighet och en trevlig humlearom. Den här ölen var från början en vinteröl men den stora efterfrågan gjorde att vi nu brygger ölet året om.

Bottle from Garlic_of_Doom, thanks! Almost black, pours a huge head. Chocolate, roast and smoke in the somewhat spicy aroma. Birch twigs. Malty sweet, roasty smoky flavor with birch twigs, licorice, pepper. Fizzy but tasty. Good beer!

Bottle @ Michael, brew day. Very dark brown, big tan head that settles quickly, some lacing. Aroma, roasted malts, chocolate, smoke. Similar taste. Very carbonated, which ruins the beer.

Cool_Bond (1251) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2014
A rich aroma of carbonation and dark malt. Fairly light in flavor with very dark chocolate. Maybe a little sweetness. But the aftertaste so, the exponential and dry bitterness up putting herself in the back of the mouth for a long time. Really good beer according to me. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Beautiful! Dry porter with notes of toffee and lots and lots of coffee. There are also strong notes of a not that pleasant smokeiness that has an artifical feel to it... Too bad that the smokeiness destroys a otherwise quite good beer.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Black appearance with a small brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, hops, honey, grain. Taste of instant coffee and caramel, with a light ashtray finish. Light bitterness, and a nice mild smoked aftertaste

Flaska. Svart öl med smutsvitt skum. Som är stort och som aldrig vill lägga sig. Det är vackert att beskåda. Men å andra sidan får du vara utrustad med en stor portion tålamod för det dröjer innan du kommer åt att dricka ölen. Vi har alla våra olika referensramar: Där bryggeriet beskriver denna öl som "en lite rökig porter" hittar jag nästan bara rökighet: Tjära. Och det är alldeles utmärkt. Kaffe fyller på, men får hålla sig i bakgrunden. Och när bryggeriet sen påstår att "man kan ana en lätt rökighet" i smaken så undrar jag om det är mig eller flaskan det är fel på. Rökigheten är inte fullt lika dominerande, men den är ihärdig som en mygga på en svettig kropp. Trevlig sälta i smaken dessutom. Kaffe och mörk choklad ges här chansen till visst utrymme.

Rasmus40 (10642) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle from the Systembolaget webshop. Almost black with a big beige head. Aroma is dusty, roasted malt, coffee and peated smoke. Flavor is medium sweet, moderate bitter and light acidic. Dry, roasted moderate bitter and light acidic finish. Heavy carbonation and somewhat unclean. Very hard to drink. 300713

Dark porter style beer with a nice balance between chocholate, bitterness and smoke.
