It truly is a glorious sunny day today, and what better way to celebrate then with a BEER. We are excited to announce that we received 12 great NEW BEERS today! Some of them are rare finds while others are just exciting, tasty, and different. Come on down and pick a few out before they are gone.
From Left to Right:
Mikkeller It’s Alive – Belgian Wild Ale – RateBeer: 97 – BeerAdvocate: B+ – It’s Alive! is Mikkellers answer and tribute to the trappist beer Orval. It’s Alive is an easy-to-drink beer, with a lot of hops. The color is amber, the foam is high, white and dense. The potent Brettanomyces culture makes It’s Alive continue to develop in the bottle.
Emelisse Barleywine – BeerAdvocate: B- – A barleywine on the lighter side. This barleywine is a nice introduction for those not looking to push their palate too far. Best served slightly chilled. At over 10% Alc. expect sweetness upfront with a bitter finish.
Tournay Black – Foreign Stout – RateBeer: 91 – BeerAdvocate: B+ – Tournay Black is a beer, refermented in the bottle, with an alcohol content of 7,6%. It contains only natural ingredients: water, four malts, two hops, yeast and sugar. We select special malts and very traditional hops to give it a powerful, long flavour in the mouth and a quite a strong hint of bitterness. This is a beer that will really appeal to Stout lovers!!
Mikkeller Black – Imperial Stout – RateBeer: 97 – BeerAdvocate: B+ – The strongest beer in Scandinavia. This imperial stout is the craziest, wildest, strongest beer from Mikkeller to this date. Not for sissies…….! Sample it fresh or store it for many meny years to come!
Tournay Blond – Belgian Tripel – RateBeer: 86 – Beeradvocate: B+ – Tournay is a golden white beer with 6.7% alcohol content. It is refermented in the bottle and made from only natural ingredients: water, two malts, four hops, yeast and a little sugar for the fermentation in the bottle. Unfiltered and unpasteurised. Tournay is a very well-balanced beer, the flower hops used during the brew giving it a slightly dry, bitter aftertaste.
Haandbryggeriet Haandbakk – Norwegian Sour Ale – RateBeer: 99 – BeerAdvocate: A- – The first wild yeast-fermented beer brewed in Norway for over 100 years. Aged in oak barrels for 2 years.
Tournay Saison Cazeau – RateBeer: 83 – BeerAdvocate: B+ – Saison Cazeau is a light white beer, refermented in the bottle, with 5% alcohol content. As well as the Pilsen malt and two hops which give it a really nice bitter flavour, Saison is laced with elderflowers which make it really refreshing. The elderflower only blooms for three weeks, which means that production of our Saison is very time-limited.
Emelisse Espresso Stout – RateBeer: 96 – BeerAdvocate: B – The Emelisse Espresso Stout is enhanced by a blend of fine Italian espresso beans used in the brewing process. It boasts a blend of 90% Arabica and 10% Robusta, which combine to give the Emelisse Espresso Stout an extra spicy, full-bodied palate.
Amager Batch One – Danish Barleywine – RateBeer: 97 – BeerAdvocate: B+ – With this special brew, Batch One, we dared to experiment with combining our usual devotion to a solid malt profile with the addition of American aroma hops. Batch One is an American-inspired Ale characterized by its vast, full body and generous use of hops. In the glass, it has a reddish-brown colour with a coppery glow, and a beige-coloured head leaves a nice lacing behind. For this brew we have chosen to only use the noble Simcoe hop, both for boiling and the following dry-hopping. The hops give the beer its fresh citrus-like character and impart a solid bitterness to balance the sweet caramel malt.
Het Alternatief Bitter Truth – Belgian IPA – RateBeer: 89 – BeerAdvocate: B+ – This is a far hoppier beer than the smell would imply. Creamy mouthfeel with a proper level of carbonation. Good aftertaste but it is not as bitter as most DIPA’s. It also doesn’t linger as long.
Fantome BBB Dark White – RateBeer: 95 – BeerAdvocate: A- – This brew pours a hazy copper/orange color with a soft beige head. It smells sweet with a bit of tart and spicy malty aromas. The taste is balanced with peppery seasoned flavors as well as malt and hops. Dark fruits like cherry and fig are present and a little bit of must comes through. The sweeter flavors linger in the end. It’s medium in body and quite tasty and drinkable.
Saint Somewhere Pays Du Soleil – Saison – RateBeer: 91 – BeerAdvocate: B+ – Brewed with Palmetto berries and whole Hibiscus flowers. House saison yeast strain along with a dose of wild yeast at bottling add to the complexity.
