COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Alstærk er den ene af to heste, som trækker Sols vogn hen over himlen. Vognen bliver styret af Mundilfares smukke datter, som er opkaldt efter solen.
Alstærk blev kåret som den bedste øl ved DM i håndbryg 2011 og vandt desuden andenpladsen ved det skandinaviske mesterskab i håndbryg 2011. Alstærk er en stærk Skotsk Ale, som gæres ved lavere temperaturer end de fleste ales for at fremhæve maltbaggrunden. Den er brygget med 6 forskellige malttyper, hvilket resulterer i en kompleks maltbaggrund som balance til den høje alkoholprocent og det lave indhold af humle. Fynske Claus Christensen fra Munkebo Mikrobryg er Danmarks mest vindende håndbrygger, som kombinerer traditionel ølbrygning med nutidens naturvidenskab.
Ingredienser: malt, humle, vand, gær, maltekstrakt og sukker.

First batch brewed at Ørbæk, late 2013 the brewing was moved to own equipment

Rehkopff (73) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 20, 2017
Stærk og kraftig. Stort set ingen aroma og et tydeligt uklart slør. Mundfylde af malt og en fin, men svag, humle bitterhed. Eftersmag med toner af sherry og alkohol. En voldsom øl der skal nydes i små mængder. Finder den god som "barley Wine" efter maden! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle - "Work" at Koht - thanks Kairi!
Sweet malty aroma, some solventy aspects, green apple plus sugar, a touch woody. Medium full palate, a bit sweet slickness, soft carbonation. Pleasant sweet woody taste, more green apple, more sugar. Finish is dry and woody, a touch tanninny in the long finish, does hint at real hops, albeit dry flaky ones. Covers the alcohol reasonably well beneath the caramel.
