Serebrianka Hop
« on: September 20, 2014, 10:18:37 PM »
Wow gotta chime in on this varietal.  Low AA hop with a great flavor.  I put like 3 oz in an
ESB recipe and wound up with a great beer and the hop profile is Icing on the Cake.  Just
my .02 cents. Nice clean bittering to offset the sweet malt.
 If you were wanting to know about this hop it is a neat tasty addition.

+1 I love this hop! Just kegged a burton ale that had a nice dry hop of them, and it smells great. Really nice addition to a Scottish ale as well.

Nice to hear the feedback. Any tasting notes on the flavor? I've heard black tea and tobacco as descriptors. Sounds like it would be great in English styles.

I would agree with that description. Earthy black tea, fresh tobacco, and cedar.

I have been mulling over how to describe this with taste notes.  Today
I was having a burger steak with a little A-1 sauce and this beer was
in the mix.  I got a fairly strong note of Black Licorice in the olfactory.
Took me a long time to recognize this because I do not eat Black Licorice.

I'm not a big fan of black licorice or anise-flavored liquors, but there are a few hops that I get that note from and it really works in certain beers. I get that flavor from EKG, and it pairs well with the caramel and toffee notes from English Crystal malts.

I think I might have to give this a try. I have a Baltic Porter on deck that would be a good fit, I think.

A neighbor makes a star anise Porter that is pretty good.  I will have to tell him about this hop.
