Ølkælderen at Bryggeri Flakhaven, opens here in Odense today. With 25 beers on tap, it’s instantly the biggest selection in town, focusing on local beer in particular. Bryggeriet Flakhaven has existed in a long time, as a pretty boring standard brewpub. Earlier this year, it was bought by a group of people including Anders Coisbo, the man behind Coisbo Beer. While Coisbo is a gypsy brewery, Anders started out as a home brewer, and told me that he’s happy to get back at actual brewing.

Upstairs at Flakhaven there is a very nice restaurant, serving the house beer. In the basement, Ølkælderen (The Beer Cellar) will sell the house beers, more beers from Coisbo and the sub-brand Undercover, as well as beers from other local breweries and from around the world.  Læs mere Ølkælderen at Bryggeriet Flakhaven – New Bar in Odense

Julekalender: Coisbo Christmas Ale

Coisbo Christmas AleCoisbo har med Coisbo Christmas Ale på 7% præsteret en af de ret få julebryg der fungerer trods rigelige mængder krydderi. Den slags hører egentlig ikke hjemme i øl, men Coisbos julebryg får det til at virke, med sødme og humlebitterhed til at balancere oplevelsen.

Øllet er mørkt kobberfarvet, med et holdbart, cremefarvet skum. Duften har foruden julekrydderier karamel, mørk sirup og mørke frugter. Smagen er sød, med mere karamel og sirup, brunkager, tørret frugt og lidt krydret humle. Eftersmagen er humlet og bitter. Sødmen og bitterheden gør at øllet hænger sammen, trods masser af brunkagekrydderier. Det er i den grad en øl der smager af jul, men den kan leve med det.
