Danish: Denne stærke mørke ale er baseret på et mix af specielt udvalgte belgiske malttyper og en autentisk belgisk trappistgær. Aromaen præges af mørke bær og frugt. Den blide og komplekse smag er krydret, vinøs, karamel- og kandissød, let olieagtig og med et delikat indslag af chokolade, balanceret med en velafstemt bitterhed. Øllen vil begå sig glimrende til kraftige retter, til frokostbordet og endda som ledsager til desserter med chokolade. Direktøren er videreudviklingen af bryggerens prisbelønnede øl, der bl.a. vandt guld ved det samlede skandinaviske mesterskab i 2010. Den vil udvikle sig med alderen og kan gemmes i mange år.

English: This strong dark ale is based on a mix of specially selected Belgian malts and an authentic Belgian trappist yeast. The aroma is characterized by dark berries and fruit. The gentle and complex flavor is spicy, vinous, caramel and candi sweet, slightly oily and with a delicate touch of chocolate, balanced with a well-matched bitterness. The beer will do excellent with heavy dishes, for lunch and even as a companion to desserts containing chocolate. Direktøren is a development of the brewer’s award-winning beer, which took the gold medal of the Scandinavian Championship in 2010. It will evolve with age and can be stored for many years.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle. An unclear, dark amber colored beer with a minimal sized light beige head. The aroma is rather chocolatey, with roasted malts and a touch of hops. Dark sugar in large amounts, both in the aroma and the flavor, especially in the flavor. Full to medium body with a soft carbonation and some warmth. Lasting finish. Some cooked vegetables all the way. Not very interesting this one, it’s way too sweet, but it’s far from bad though. 141231

Pours amber color with a minimal head. Aroma of chocolate, ripe fruits, dark berry notes, some wood and yeast. Flavor of dark berries, plums, raisins, banana notes, yeast, wood and toffee also, faint brown sugar on the finish. Strong carbonation, sticky sweet caramelly palate and lingering sourish berry finish. Hides alcohol pretty well. A bit too sweet but decent.
