COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Den gamle brygmester har brugt en ældre metode med opvarmede lavasten til sin sidste overgærede øl. Stenene sænkes ned i urt, og der dannes et karamellag omkring stenene, som så anbringes i lagertanken. Karamellen frigøres til øllet under den lange kolde eftergæring, og metoden giver, sammen med en eksplosion af humlenuancer, en ganske særlig aromatisk karakteristika til øllet.

Palme (3546) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2011
0.33l bottle courtesy of yngwie. Pours a black ale - suitable enough I guess - with a small and sidesticking lightly tanned head. Aroma is quite sweet with some dark caramel, dark malts, hops, and hints of chocolatepaper. Average carbonation, medium bodied and it has a heavy and oily mouthfeel. Strong flavors; burned toast, lots of licorice and burned malts. Deep dark caramel, spices and lots of nice and light bitter piny hops in the finish. Lasting dark licorice and caramel aftertaste. Quite a interesting little beer this.

CarlJonas (218) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2011
Blackish brown with a creamy beige head that leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, liquorice and black currant. The taste is very dry and bitter with minerals and ash in the after-taste. The liquid is kind of oily. Interesting, kind of like a volcanic imperial porter. Nice.

Bottle@Home. Very fruity (lots of berries) aroma. Black, light brown head, good lace. Very fruity, very roasted. Both are nice but competing with eachother. Alcohol hidden, dry-ish. Not bad at all but a bit out of balance.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2011
33cl bottle, courtesy of and shared with Gnoff. Brune foncée, moka. Arôme de malt grillé, café et expresso, houblon et pin. Bière steinbier avec pas mal de caramel, sucré malté avec, bière légère et robuste avec un bon profile de malt grillé et surtout ce côté ’instant caramélisé’ le tout sur une fine amertume. Au final, une belle surprise pour un style qui n’est pas assez brassé.
