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.

Tap at Churchkey. Pours a hazy light brown with a thin head that dissipates quickly. No lace. Aroma is subtle; not too much of anything save for some malt, toast, light caramel. Taste is very light and refreshing. Slight spice, rye bread, light citrus. Easy to drink. Very simple.

BOLTZ7555 (2854) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Murky river-water pour with a 3-finger eggshell head that left chunky lacing. Aroma is of dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar, spice and rye. Flavor shows tons of raisin, honey, biscuity yeast, molasses, and faint rye. Thick enough to stick but not syrupy. Pretty good brew.

Papsoe (25076) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a reddish amber with floating impurities and an off-white head. Nutty aroma, some burned caramel. Overly carbonated, comes gushing for a long, long time. Medium body, lots of hard roasted malt - kinda Brown aleish. Dryish, hoppy finish. Simply way too carbonated. 080210

Ungstrup (29986) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
What is this? A deep red beer with a huge over carbonated tan head, how come it is so over carbonated? infection - definately not a Danish style! The aroma has notes of burnt caramel and spices. The flavor is sweet with notes or roasted malt, spices and an off-note.

Bottle. Caramel brown color, with a lot of beige head. Aroma is pit fruit, dark belgian malt and yeast. Flavor is the same, brown sugar, spicy rye, maybe some chocolate, and yeast. Pretty complex flavor in this one, and an interesting beer.
