COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bulldogen Krut sniffade fram en unik säck Galaxyhumle från Australien. En humlesort vi förmodligen var först att använda i Sverige! Njut av mötet mellan den mörkrostade karaktären från en äkta Brown Ale och fylligheten från den svenska julölstraditionen. För att maximera upplevelsen har vi adderat NelsonSauvin från Nya Zeeland - en lyckad symbios!

Doft
Humlefruktig doft med inslag av ananas, apelsinmarmelad samt utpräglad mörkrostad matarom som påminner om espresso.

Smak
Tydlig men balanserad beska med påtaglig maltfyllighet och eftersmak av kaffe och choklad.

Pours clear dark copper red with off white head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, dried fruit and bread.It feels unbalanced with a bit roasted malt, caramel and fruity flavor in a weird combination. It lacks of bitterness and it is abrupt. Not what i expected from a winter ale. Its ok but its still weird..

From tap. Perfect session pale ale. Minerally aroma with iron, moderate hops and maltiness. The palate is full bodied and complex enough to be satisfying but not so much that it becomes cloying or unpleasant, even after several pints. Pleasant bitterness and maltiness lingering. I could drink this all night long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foffern (1298) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle at home. One year old. The colour is slightly hazy reddish brown with a nice, creamy, ivory head. Fruity aroma with spices, fruity hops, pine apple, leather and pine. Hops also pretty present in the flavour with orange peel, grapefruit, leather, berries and heather. Has a slick mouth feel and a balanced bitterness. A surprisingly hoppy beer but is balanced and easy drinking.

Flaska från SB. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Småfruktig doft med en del karamell. Lätt ton av sötlakrits i smaken.

djoeye (1843) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2014
Copper red body, tan big head, fine crocheted lacing. Aroma; mild caramellic resin, sweet citrus peels, tart, caramel malts, dusty floral hops, spices, hints of dough. Taste; sweet resin, hops, herbal resiny malts, hazelnut, walnuts, prune peels, moving towards a good balance with roasted malts and nutty and hopsy stuff in finish. Feels nice, ok body and nice carbonation. Clean and good. Probably you’ll need two of this, one for after dinner or with desserts and nuts, and then one for evening sipper. This ale has some porter qualities included. Good and clean brew. [33cl spec.brown bottle, 6.2%abv, BB25092015, B@Systembolaget Storheden Luleå 2€]

SamTheBarrel (497) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2014
330ml brown 2014 years vintage bottle, with the brewers signature shaped label picturing a bulldog, poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is clear dark mahogany with a medium sized frothy head, that reduced quickly, leaving some lacing. Aroma of pine, orange peels and caramel. Flavours of orange peels, lemon zest, caramel and roasted malts. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, slightly oily texture and average carbonation. Gotlands Sleepy Bulldog Winter Ale is a tasty and more hopped beer than I expected.
