COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Danmarks vel eneste unikke bidrag til den internationale korstogsbevægelse var en øl – en korstogsøl. Når man blev optaget i korstogsordenen Johanniterne (Malteserridderne) i Danmark drak man den traditionelle ”Kors øøll”. Nu har Nyborg Slot sammen med Ørbæk Bryggeri genskabt øllen, som den kunne have været.
Det er en mørk, kraftig øl (alk. 7,5%) med strejf af citronmelisse, safran og rørsukker. Ingredienser som alle har forbindelse til Johanniternes jorde og huse i Europa og Det Hellige Land. På trods af styrken er den overraskende blød og rund og vil gå godt til aftensmaden i stedet for vin.
Louise Harbo Bendixen har designet etiketten

15.02.2014, 0,75l bottle sampled @ RBNG14:
Tiny shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, caramel malts, sugar, dried fruits, citrus, spices almond. Taste is slightly grassy, caramel malts, dried fruits, sugar, spices. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

Virkelig en positiv overraskelse. Masser af god smag. Tilmas med sødme. Lidt tung i det.

Ikke kraftig aroma men man kan dufte sømmen. Flot farve men med kun lidt skum, som er karamelfarvet. Smagen er meget sød og den flader ud i smagen.meget perlerne i munden.

Den skulle sammenlignes med dens belgiske fætre (eller kusiner, hvis alkohol indeholder kvindelige hormoner). Det gør den rigtig godt! og til 30 kr for 75cl, ja så er der dømt belgisk aften.

750 ml corked bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Cloudy hazy amber brown colour with a ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; Two finger head with crumpety light beige foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with very fizzy carbonation; Fragrant and very sweet aroma of full malt, with strong plums, strong raisins, strong caramel, toffee, vanilla, honey, alcohol, light toast, floral, sugar, spices, bread, strong Bel yeast, lemon and grass; Strong sweet taste of full malt, with strong caramel, strong plums, dark fruits, brown sugar, light spices, strong dough, biscuits, yeast, lemon, light bitter hops and grass; Medium body. Slick palate; Mouth feel is rich maltyness in a slick background. Strong Belgian Dark characters abound, with strong plums, caramel and light spices. Strong brown sugar sweetness. Very doughty and Bel yeasty with fair lemon to round. Too sweet… Hoppiness is floral, lemon and grass in nose. Light spices, lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is low for an abrupt, low astringent sweet malty finish; Fairly dry after taste. Sweet dark fruity and malty to mouth.

Comments: This one aroma and taste is almost all strong Belgian Dark - strong dark fruits, caramel and brown sugar - and well hidden alcohol. Saffron’s sweet aroma didn’t help to dispel its seemingly cloying impression. Lemon balm is too weak to impress. Like its dark fruityness but a tad too sweet. Drinkable with some hand-waving.

Beer5000 (6545) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2016
750 ml bottle. Unclear brown/amber body with a medium sized tan/beige head. Nice aroma of caramel malt, brown sugar, dry fruit and Belgium yeast. Flavor is quite sweet, malt, caramel, brown sugar, dry fruit, spicy, Belgium yeast and moderate bitterness. Some warming alcohol. Fine balanced body and long lasting aftertaste. Quite sweet abbey dubbel kind of beer that manage to balance it the way many sweet Belgium beers do. First few sips feels a bit overwhelming sweet, but then it seems to stable it. A bit one dimensional but quite pleasant in the Belgium tradition.

bursprak (3219) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle split a few ways. Dark amber pour with a generous head. Notes of toasted nuts, toffee, caramel, some light spice, booze and some earthy notes.

mice (981) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Miltei kirkas keskiruskea olut vaahtoaa kohtalaisesti, mutta vaahto katoaa nopeasti kokonaan. Tuoksu maltainen, luumuisen rusinainen ja makea. Maultaan olut on makean maltainen, luumuinen ja rusinainen. Melko imelän maltainen jälkimaku, ei juuri happamuutta. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma, ei hiilihappoja juuri lainkaan. Pehmeä jouluinen ale on ihan lempeän lämmittävä ja pehmeän makea pläjäys.
