Meaning "rye bread" in Danish, we took our inspiration for this beer from the Danes’ staple dark, whole-grain rye bread. Brewed with three types of rye malt, this robust brown ale showcases the earthy, spicy character of the grain, complemented by bready, nutty barley malts and a hint of roast. Loosely based on the Scandinavian Christmas beer or "Julebryg" tradition, this beer is perfect for the colder weather of winter, although it will be available year-round (because who doesn’t love a dark beer now and again, regardless of weather?) And don’t worry about the name, we can’t pronounce it either! But we do have a video of us and a lot of others trying our best at it.

Bottle shared with some small plates at Bottega in Yountville. Pours dark brown and mostly opaque with a big creamy off white head. Some floated in the bottom. Aroma of chocolate, spicy rye, some brown sugar sweetness. Very pleasant. Flavor follows the smell closely with some light chocolate notes, a bit of spicy rye that gives it a nice character, sweetness, some douhginess. The body is a full medium with medium carbonation. It goes down pretty easy despite having some nice heft on it. I could see this as a light winter warmer or pleasant in the summer. A really mild beer but with plenty of flavor that pairs very nicely with food. Good stuff.

Dark brown pour with a light beige head. Sweet malty aromas with some caramel notes dominate the nose. Flavor is similar with the rye coming through in the finish with some nice earthy flavors. Sweeter than I thought it would be, but still respectable. Very interesting brew.

Bottle. Deep ruby liquid with medium light brown head. Aroma of bread, pepper, toffee, caramel, toast, chocolate, spices and raw sugar. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of bread, raw sugar, toffee, dried fruit and sweet alcohol. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Nice, but Danish? I don’t know.

Nice head, unique color, purplish plum. Based on the aroma, I would’be guessed a much higher ABV than 8%. Creamy texture, rye flavor, enjoyable beer.

From tap. Pours a nice dark red. Aroma is sweet berries. Candied fruits and sugars, with rye undertones for taste.

hotstuff (4066) - Indiana, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Rated on 3-05-2010 at Fort Wayne, IN Gathering. This beer pours a medium sized very fizzy, bubbly ivory head that mostly diminishes, hazy reddish brown body, visible carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma is malty, rye and spicy. The Taste is sweet, malty, lots of rye, fruity, and spice. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. In conclusion, this beer is all about the rye and lots of it at that. I came away with this beer being a bit too much rye tasting to the point of almost being over-the-top rye tasting.

From a bottle. Very metallic note on the nose, files through on the palate. Too boozy.

Pour is copper with a white head. Aroma is of spice, caramel, dried fruits, and candi sugar. Flavor is a bit more on the spicy side with warming alcohol on the finish. Lots of caramel malts and dried fruits in the body. Medium bodied.
