Ugly Duck Rye Porter

Brewed by Ugly Duck Brewing Co.
Nr. Aaby, Denmark
7.8% Imperial Porter | 138 Ratings | 50 IBU |
Danish: En rund og blød porter, der nænsomt kærtegner dine smagsløg inden den afgiver sin store ristede smag og en lille humlesnert følger trop. Brygget på pilsner-, karamel- og rugmalt, havreflager, chocolate- og black malt. Humlet med Cascade og Simcoe.
Bryggeren siger den går godt til den grillede ribeye, den klæge chokoladedessert eller en vellagret Roquefort-ost, men prøv det selv.

English: The smoothness of this black fluid takes you by surprise. No, this is not an extreme beer! No, this is no hop explosion! This is smoothness! Deliciously tasty, subtle toastiness and a hint of hops – like a long petting of your taste buds. And at only 7,8 % alc. this is the beer you want to drink all night. For your grilled steak, your chocolately desserts and your creamy blue cheeses.
Hops: Cascade, Simcoe Malts: Pilsner, Caramel, Rye, Oats, Chocolate, Black.
