Danish: På det seneste har vi leget en del med dobbeltmæskning. Det meste af denne øl ligger lige nu og hviler fredeligt på et par portvinsfade. Men vi var nysgerrige efter at smage den i sin rene form, så vi tog et par fade fra før fadlagringen – blot til jer. Denne øl er ikke navngivet efter en film, men efter et rockalbum. Ved du hvilket?

English: We’ve been playing around with quite a lot of double mashing lately. Most of this Barley Wine is right now peacefully aging on port wine barrels. But we were curious to try it’s pure incarnation before any barrel aging, so we kegged a little, just for you. This beer was not named after a movie but after a rock album. Do you know which?
