COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Maelstrøm is gebrouwen ter gelegenheid van het 10 jarige bestaan van de SNAB. Terugkijkend in de geschiedenis van het brouwen komen we het verschijnsel van moeder-dochter bier regelmatig tegen. Deze oude brouwmethode, waarbij men gebruik maakte van één zelfde storting om meerdere bieren te maken, is de basis voor onze Maelstrøm (9,8 %) en Snab Pale Ale (6,3 %). Door de zware storting na te spoelen verkrijg je een steeds minder zwaar bier. Om puur praktische redenen worden beide bieren nu apart gebrouwen. In ons streven om vernieuwend te zijn op de Nederlandse biermarkt zijn we hierin ook met de Maelstrøm weer geslaagd. Speciaal voor de liefhebbers van droge, hopbittere bieren is deze American Barley Wine ontwikkeld. Door gebruik te maken van Cascade en Amarillo hop en het toepassen van "dry-hopping" heeft dit bier een zeer uitgesproken karakter gekregen. Water, Pale Ale-, Kristal en Münchener mout, Cascade en Amarillo hop en gist.

Dark red / amber colored beer. Smells sweet, rich and complex. I taste caramel, figgs, resins and ripe red fruit. The best barley wine I have tasted so far.

Really good barley wine, the dry hoppy end and the aftertaste reminds me of lingonberries. Sweetness stays under control. My kind of american style barley wine, a winter warmer. My only complaint is that my bottle didn’t have that awesome eagle in it, it had a new, more "look what i made while drinking heavily and using powerpoint" kind of a flair to it.

Bottled. Chesntut brown. Big huge grapefruity cascade hop aroma. Rather sweet and really full bodied, but dominated by intense hoppiness. A very american style barley wine with a lingering hop bitter finish.

Tap at Arendsnest, march 07. Pretty strong "C" hop aroma and a nice toffee touch with some pineapples, pepper and strange whisky ending. Deep, profound, bittersweet flavor, tons of different tones and a great juicy ending. Excellent. Medium to heavy MF, dangerously drinkable though. Amazing strong ale.

Bottle, Winter Ales Festival, Manchester. This was hugely enjoyable. Poured a hazy dark orange. Wionderful fresh and fruity grapefruit cascade hop aroma. Flavour also hop packed with bags of tropical fruit. Great body, pleasantly thick, with a subdued but nicely balanced caramel malt presence. Lip smackingly tasty. Would love to get my hands on some more of this.
