Brewery: Carlsberg in Copenhagan, Denmark Style: Euro Strong Lager ABV: 7.2% IBUs: 35 Rate Beer: 6/100 Pour: Golden amber/orange colour with no real head on pour. When I grabbed this out of the fridge I was expecting a normal Carlsberg lager. Then I saw the 7.2%. Well, I thought, this might not be too bad. There […]
Brewery: Amager Bryghus in Kastrup, Denmark Style: Old Ale ABV: 9.5% Rate Beer: 95/100 Pour: Black in colour with no head bar a thin ring around the glass. Strong, thick, sweet old ale.

Brewery: To Øl in Copenhagen, Denmark Style: IPA ABV: 7.0% Rate Beer: 96/100 Pour: Golden ray of sunshine in a glass. Oh Citra! I love this hop. Citrus flavour and a light malt grain build makes for a good beer. This is what the West Coast IPA is made from.

No head to speak of Strong rye malt flavour with a slight scotch aftertaste. It’s a bold, heavy beer that borders on a Scotch Ale or a rye IPA. This is the kind […]

Big smell of chocolate in this Imperial liquorice porter from the Danish Brewery via Tampa USA. First taste matches first smell. Rich dark chocolate flavour with the tiniest hint of liquorice. Look, I know my reviews are unconventional […]
Brewery: Eviltwin Brewing, Brooklyn USA (via Denmark) Style: Imperial Stout ABV: 10% Rate Beer: 99/100 Pour: Black with a sliver of tan head A big roasty malted beer with choc vanilla tones underneath.
