As I’ve received quite a few of emails asking for a sneak peek at our Dwarven Ale “Durin!“, I just couldn’t bring myself to disappoint you fine folks and had to drag myself to the brewery for another tasting. It was quite the challenge but you know me, anything for you wonderful ale enthusiasts!
Me and a few of my mates headed over to the brewery yesterday and had a select tasting of (if I may say so myself) our excellent Dwarven ale. Well, truth be told… we were in luck we knew the brewer that well, otherwise he likely wouldn’t have allowed us to behave like drunken dwarrows as the night progressed… but I digress.
Without further ado, I bring you… Durin!
“Durin!” is a deep brown, creamy, richly flavored bitter ale sporting a woolly foam beard. A true cross between a bold Stout and a traditional Trappist. The deep burnt malt flavor and heavy alcohol aroma form a dwarven chorus with the coffee, liquor, fruit and caramel flavors. A very pleasurable long and bitter aftertaste complete this “deathless” of ales.
And now our “Deathless” bottled..
As you can see the deep brown ale in the brown bottle make for a very dark brown (nearly black) look at first glance. The bottle cap with the same color complete this ale perfectly, well… not quite off course. As I’m still looking for that perfect label to stick on this fine bottled brew.
Anyone willing to have a go at designing a brilliant label, or wishes to win a selection of Durin! should have a look at the artist competition article posted earlier last week.
Good luck and cheers!
Oh, and here’s to the Dwarven New Year *raises another Durin!*
