Meaning "rye bread" in Danish, we took our inspiration for this beer from the Danes’ staple dark, whole-grain rye bread. Brewed with three types of rye malt, this robust brown ale showcases the earthy, spicy character of the grain, complemented by bready, nutty barley malts and a hint of roast. Loosely based on the Scandinavian Christmas beer or "Julebryg" tradition, this beer is perfect for the colder weather of winter, although it will be available year-round (because who doesn’t love a dark beer now and again, regardless of weather?) And don’t worry about the name, we can’t pronounce it either! But we do have a video of us and a lot of others trying our best at it.

Bottle, large sample. Dark brown color, medium brown frothy head. Aroma of roast, bit mocha, cookie, spicy rye, some coffee. Bit sweet cookie and biscuit in taste, grainy and slight spicy rye, and roasty and chocolatey bitterness. Chewy palate. I liked it.

Fredd_an (250) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2015
Fantastisk stor, stor krona med både små å stora bubblor, mörk brun färg, lätt maltig, karamellig, knäck doft! Knäckig smak blandat med en jävla massa Hult kryddor & mint, mintchoklad nästan, ganska söt &, mörk malt fyllig, slät eftersmak med blandade kryddor som koriander & jäst? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Garlic_of_Doom (639) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle. No idea of how old this was as there was no date code. Anyhow: Dark brown with a dense beige head. Aroma is sweet with canned fruit, spices and chocolate. Taste is sweet caramely, metallic, peppery (rye I guess) and with some chocolate. Medium body, high carbonation, round mouth feel. Metallic bitter after taste.
