10.1% Barley Wine | 126 Ratings | Special Release |
Danish: En stærk øl af Barley Wine typen. Rund, blød og næsten som en cognac. Den er udelukkende brygget af malt og humle og har derfor en særdeles kraftig og intens smag af ølbrygningens hovedingredienser. Har lagret minimum et år, og øllene kan derefter gemmes i op til ti år. Den lange lagring giver øllen en rund fylde og afrunder alkoholsmagen. Kan serveres som aperitif eller til en kop kaffe i stil med en cognac. Nydes ved 8-10 grader.

English: A strong barley wine, round and soft, comparable to brandy. Made solely from malt and hops it has a powerful and intense taste. Brøckhouse Vintage has been stored for at least one year and will keep for at least another 10 years. The long storage process adds to the full-bodied character and rounds off the alcohol. Can be served as an aperitif or accompanying a cup of coffee like brandy. Best served at 8-10 degrees celsius.
