COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

medium/dark brown with tan head. nose of crystal malt with a touch of spiciness from the rye and a touch of alcohol. low bitterness before the above mentioned crystal malt flavor with touches of rye. low alcohol flavor, but a touch of warmth and a very dry finish. a well fermented beer and a very interesting and nice brew

Garlic_of_Doom (558) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle. No idea of how old this was as there was no date code. Anyhow: Dark brown with a dense beige head. Aroma is sweet with canned fruit, spices and chocolate. Taste is sweet caramely, metallic, peppery (rye I guess) and with some chocolate. Medium body, high carbonation, round mouth feel. Metallic bitter after taste.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Tom L. Very dark brown with a quickly dissolving beige head. Rye, caraway, cocoa and some caramel aroma, sweet, yet a little dry, caramel and cocoa taste. Flattish, full-bodied, rye bit towards the end and lots of caramel.
