8 Wired Mighty Imperial Ale (330ml Bottle)
My idea of a strong ale was brewed with loads of malt, hops, jaggery and a touch of Manuka smoke. It was femented with a clean ale yeast to le the ingredients speak for themselves without getting interrupted by too many esters. After all that it was aged for months on American oak, then refermented in the bottle. Cheers - Soren Eriksen, Brewer.
American Strong Ale
Not a style, per se, but the only logical category to incorporate the plethora of strong, stylistically vague beers coming from American micros these days. Some are related to English Strong Ales, but with more hop, while others are ultra-strong variants on the IPA theme. But no matter how varied their origins or characters might be, all are intense, potent, with generous quantities of hops and malt.
