Background and objectives

The Kissmeyer Icons series is meant as a retrospective salute to those beers previously launched under the Kissmeyer Beer brand that are the most iconic. The beers in the series, all originally launched between 2010 and 2016, represent a broad variety of beer styles with the common denominator that they all exhibit a highly personal and unique ‘twist’ on the base styles. The twists are different from beer to beer, but the overall characteristic is that the Icon beers are smooth, accessible and harmonious. Simply because that is how I like my beer! The Kissmeyer Stockholm Syndrome was created in 2010 as a collaboration with Sigtuna Brygghus outside Stockholm. The beer is continuously hopped with the most fruity US and New Zealand aroma hops known to me.

Appearance

Unfiltered, deep amber coloured. Rich, lasting white head.

Aroma

Tons of fruity and floral hop aromas, a touch of malt and alcohol.

Taste

Dry, very full bodied, fruity hoppy, intensely, but smoothly bitter with a long aftertaste.

Mouth feel

Very full body, dry for style and slightly warming.

food matching

Spicy and hot Asian or Mexican dishes, spicy pizza and hard, strong cheeses.

Overall

An intense, full bodied and massive double/imperial IPA, but in its young life with an explosion of fruity hop aromas and flavours, and later in life with vineous and woody complexity. Huge, but incredibly smooth and balanced bitterness, creating a lethal drinakbility!
