COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On a beautiful summer night in July while peaceful Danes rocked at Roskilde Festival and sipped wine in their picturesque summer retreats, an apocalyptic tidal surge flooded the famous Ølbutikken in Copenhagen and drowned thousands of precious beer – Hop Flood is a bitter tribute to the heroic bottles that didn’t make it.

Lovely stuff this. Loads of sweet caramel, toffee, biscuity malts... Bit of pine and resin, low bitterness. Dry finish. Lovely.

In short: malty, fruity ale.
Pours dark amber with nice off white head. Short head retention, some lacing. Short head retention, some lacing. Roasty, malty, caramel, licorice nose. Medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is quite bitter, some fruity, caramel. Dry and bitter aftertaste.

El aroma es complejo, afrutado y con una importante carga de pino. En boca entra muy dulce al principio, con la malta tostadita muy presente. Pero poco a poco se va tornando amarga, hasta que una riada de lúpulo te sorprende… y es entonces cuando comprendes el por qué de su nombre. El final, amargo y seco, es muy duradero. Una grandísima cerveza.

Bottle - hazy amber color, nice creamy head. Taste is barrique-like: Old red wood, slightly sour, red berries. Quite sweet, toffee. Finish is medium bitter. Its a decent beer but not my style. Wouldnt have it again.

Pour is a dark brown with a large white head. Aroma is a sweet malt with a faint whiff of hops. I can tell this is going to be malt heavy. Flavor is a dark malt with some dark fruit like a sunmaid raison. There is no date on the bottle so I don’t know how old this is. There is not much hop presence but the malt used has a decent flavor.

Uma experiência interessantíssima essa Hop Flood: é uma cerveja complexa, que muda bastante ao longo do tempo. A recomendação é beber devagar e sentir essas mudanças (no meu caso, especialmente, ela estava um pouco gelada no começo, o que ressaltou ainda mais essas diferenças) Cerveja marrom escura. creme bege de média duração. O aroma inicial é intenso, de lúpulo fresco, cítrico, com poucas notas do malte, que vão ficando cada vez mais marcantes, com resíduos de caramelado e açúcar mascavo. O sabor é amargo, com forte presença do lúpulo, doce do malte, frutas escuras. O amadurecimento revela uma presença de madeira e deixa o frutado cada vez mais em segundo plano, sobrando só o amargor e adstringência. É uma cerveja de corpo médio pra alto, com sabor marcante e persistente. Complexa, possui baixa drinkabilidade, mas é uma cerveja extrema.

Bottle. The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with a steady head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of hops and rum. Taste of hops, barrel, oak, rum raisins, dried plums, prunes, woods and barley. Smooth finish with rum hints. Highly delicious.

Bottle at home. Aroma is rich caramel malt, biscuit, hops, pine resin, toffee, ripe fruits, bit toasted. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet and nicely bitter. Long bittersweet finish. Body is above medium. Nicely bittersweet Barley Wine-ish hoppy Amber Ale, good stuff.

Bottle into glass. Pours hazy amber with medium tan head. Aroma is strongly of hops with a long, strongly bitter finish. Probably the most bitter beer I’ve enjoyed to date.
