COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: ”Rough Snuff” er en Mørk Stærk Belgisk Ale tilsat krydderier som vil fryde enhver gammel fiskeskipper. Både kandis og rosinsirup er med til at give øllen sin fylde og styrke. Og for at kunne modstå selv den værste kuling, er der tilsat både blæretang og snus, der begge styrker blodomløbet. En rigtig svedig sag der bør være en del af provianten når man står til søs. Øllen er en videreudvikling af den opskrift som håndbrygger Erik Nielsen fik kåret som ”Sydfyns bedste håndbryggede påskebryg”. Det første bryg af Fishermann’s ale blev forbudt af de danske fødevaremyndigheder fordi der var brugt snus i øllen. På årets festival er det muligt at smage version 2, hvor snus er ersattet med bl.a. lakrids. Ver. 1 kåret som Årets Ølnyhed 2010 af Danske Ølentusiaster.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, - DEC 15, 2011
Draught @ Olfestival 2011 Kobenhavn. Brown beer with small off-white head. Sweet malty aroma, lots of anis and licorice. Very strong licorice flavour, dry bitter finish. I geenrally don’t like licorice that much and here it is no exception as it is ery overpowering.

bergstaden (3332) - Røros, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2018
Dark golden with off white head - Sweet arom with malt and dark fruit - Malt body that has sweetness from dark fruity flavour and there is some small yesty notes in the back - The malt and sweet dark fruits with hints of yeast goes into the finish - This was good

Thanks. Sampled draft. Dark brown. Nose is cacao, vegetable, soy umami, roots, bark,… Taste is umami, gravy, plastic, bark, soy sauce, herbal, roots, soy sauce,… Body is umami, roots,… Not really my thing. The first version of this apparently had snus, iew.

kapusil (1563) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 31, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 0.33l bottle. Dark brown body with a thin light brown head. The peppery phenols and the booze are too strong in this beer for me and hide the other aroma and taste components. Some orange peel, dark sugar syrup and raisins come through though. Wonder what would it like with a bit lower alcohol...

ALIBALI (2707) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2017
Holz, Lakritze, Schoko & der schlanke Charme des dubbeligen SoapYeasters. Gut gereift, könnte man sagen ;)...die erste Probe erfolgte mit Andy in DK 09/2016 und da war es einfach nur ein viel zu süsses BSA. 0,5l Flasche aus DK too :)...

k_gadeberg (255) - �rhus, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2017
On bottle. Pours almost black, with small foam. Scent of tobacco and liqourice. Sweet taste, with a note of smoke. It’s really “rough”, but not bad.

3.7
Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2017
Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Langnes. Gå vidt gjennomskinnelig dyprød. Middels høyt mokkafarget skum som daler raskt. God sjokoladearoma. Silkemyk munnfølelse. Smaken melkesjokolade & salt lakris. Lett tørr avslutning.

dorain (714) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2017
Aus der Flasche im 2017-11 getrunken. Ein dunkler, malziger Belgier mit vollen Körper. Die feine Süße hält sich in Grenzen, wobei eine längere Lagerung der Flaschen sich möglichweise als spannend erweisen könnte. Doch jetzt schon ist das hier ein leckeres Ale.

TBone (18561) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2017
Bottled 500ml (Boxbeers)
Braille text in the label. Dark ruby colour, small steady beige head. Aroma has dark bread, alcohol, malts and yeah like tobacco. It is similar to some Baltic Porters brewed in the Baltics. Medium-bodied. Sweetish, caramel, malts, licorice, rye bread. Robust but way too sweet. And yes, it is like heavy Scandinavian easter beer or Baltic Porter so "Belgian Strong Ale" gives you somewhat wrong idea.

The same as the first Rough Snuff, only with the difference, that it´s now legal.

EvNa (609) - Ede, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2017
Bottle. Color: Dark rub y, thin light brown head. Taste: Rather complex mix of roasted malt, caramel, raisins, spices and brown sugar notes, licorice and alcohol. Mostly medium sweet with some lightly bitter notes. Lightly warming mouthfeel. A bit too much sweetness for me.
