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.

Crispy and nice with real bite of bitterness without losing the richness. Not as heavy as many other Christmas beers tend to be.

stefannilssons (1455) - SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2012
Det här var en bra öl med en spännande och fruktig smak. Smaken bär söta och fruktiga toner med svaga maltiga inslag. Ölen har en bra balans och innehar en stabil kropp.

tfredvik (1056) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2013
Pours a good-looking, clear and very dark red to brown body, with a bit small but fairly long-lived head with a pale tan head that laces the glass very well. The aroma is strong, sweet and delicious. This actually reminds me more of a double IPA than a brown ale, with strong notes of overripe tropical fruits, caramel and pine. The taste is moderate to light sweet and moderate bitter. The flavours follow the aroma, but with a tad more weight on the malty part, with burnt sugar in addition to the caramel. Pleasant mouthfeel, medium body, smooth texture, soft carbonation. A fabulous beer!

Cunningham (4340) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2012
Deep nuttbrown colour with a fine tan head that leaves a fine lacing. Lovely aroma. Grape hoppy, fruity and some roasted malt. Unusual brown ale. Exciting with hopps from the other side of the world. Medium body with a fine balanced sweetness. Fine bitterness. Lovely fruity and hoppy flavour. Solid malt background and some roasted malt. Complex and fine balanced brew.

Vignale (2003) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2012
Ytterligare en postiv överaskning (det är väl dags att sluta bli överaskad nu) från Wisby. Välhumlad med en humlecocktail av tropiska frukter och en karamellig maltbas. Jag tänker APA med med lite mer sötma och välrostad humle. Fin fräsch humle, bra balans, lättdrucken och bra till maten. I like.

Holmen1 (2306) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2013
Flaske delt med RBHD-guttene juni-13: mmm, endelig en med deilig, fruktig og lett krydret aroma, og smaken følger opp. Her er det ingenting å klage på, dette er et elegant og kompleks øl som jeg fint kan drikke hele året. Lang ettersmak som gleder og varmer. Denne hunden skal ikke få sove.
