    Happy Friday fellow drinkers at the virtual bar. Sipping on something local to Freiburg. First time with this one, and it's very tasty! Cheers!

    I didn't even bother playing the commercial. As soon as I noticed what it was, the whole thing played in my head. It gave me a big smile!

    Next up is one of my all-time favorites! BA Oro Negro is off the charts! You even get a glimpse of our sad tree in the background. Didn't want to buy a bunch of ornaments in Germany that we can't bring back to California, so the kids are in the process of making some. Will update next week! Cheers all!

    Round #1.5
    A taste of my final gravity sample after transferring 3 gallons of barleywine into secondary fermentation. I wound up with a little too much volume in primary and dropped FG to 1.014. Started at 1.080 so around 8.7% when I was shooting for 9.2%. Tastes good for room temperature, flat, 16 day old barleywine though. It will be hard to let it sit long enough to reach it's potential.

    Amazing tropical fruit aroma and taste, balanced nicely by a good bitterness, so the beer doesn't seem too sweet. Great stuff.

    Deep golden color with white cap and good lacing.

    Scent of piney, herbal hops with a touch of citrus zest. Malt in the background but it's an indistinct presence.

    Taste on entry is hop forward with a piney sharpness and a heavier grapefruit like citrus. This is the predominate flavor into the aftertaste where sweet malt makes a bump of an appearance just before fade to black.

    Light-medium texture with balancing carbonation.

    Fairly simple, tasty brew that only plays a few notes but plays them well.

    Sticking to the tropical IPAs with great can art for now. This is a collaboration by a norwegian, danish and swedish brewery and it's pretty damn tasty! Juicy citrus and tropical fruit aroma/taste with a light bitterness, very nice NEIPA. It also comes in one of those cool cans where you take the whole lid off when you open them.

    Drinking a Swedish macro Christmas lager beer. 5.8% abv, 30ibus, hopped with Cascade hops. It's quite well balanced between the dark malt and the hops, the malt flavors are a mix of sweet and roasted and the hops provide a solid bitterness and aromatic hoppiness. The smell isnät overtly American but compared with the hop aromatics of most Swedish beers they set themselves apart and when I had Stone Arrogant Bastard for the first time this beer came to mind even though it is more muted in its hop flavor.

    A hop forward Christmas beer is really counter to Swedish brewing traditions, if one looks at brewing records from the early 1900s one finds that Swedish breweries brewed beers of higher than normal original gravity yet lower hopping rates than normal when brewing their Christmas brews (a Swedish lager beer might be brewed to around 13% OG using 200-250 grams of hops per HL, a Swedish pilsner beer might be brewed to around 12% and use 300-440 grams of hops per HL, while a Swedish Christmas beer might be brewed to around 15%-17% OG and use 50-100 grams of hops per HL). Regardless I still enjoy one this one quite a bit, it has a nice depth of malt flavors combined with a pleasant hop bitterness and hop aromatics.
