Kinn Brottsjø – the aptly named “crashing wave” – is our double IPA containing no less than 8.5 % alcohol. Brewmasters strive to strike the right balance between maltiness and hoppiness in extra strong beers, so we rely on Belgian Trappist monks for the yeast and a generous helping of sugar to bring out the ideal blend of malty sweetness and alcohol. The hoppy punch derives from American Zeus, Citra, and Mosaic, with just a touch of Japanese Sorachi Ace. The resultant brew is fruity and spicy all at once. With such a powerful taste, this beer is best enjoyed by itself. Or you can combine with a platter of strong cheeses.
