COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish:I den græske mytologi er Erebus personificeringen af mørket. Navnet inspirerede mig til at prøve at brygge en mørk øl efter en utraditionel metode.
Derfor blev Erebus brygget på udelukkende lyse malte og efterfølgende tilført farve og smag med et 24 timers koldtvandsudtræk af chokolade malt samt en masse hjemmekogt kandissukker. Resultatet er en helt mørkebrun øl med masser af karamel og chokolade smag, men uden de ristede og brændte nuancer der ofte er associeret med mørke øl.
Optimalt set bør Erebus nydes ved 14-18 grader i et tungt bowleglas foran en blussende pejs - men i en snæver vending kan et let ridset sommerhusglas med Lalandia motiv og et afsnit af The Office på DVD-afspilleren også bruges.
Erebus er brygget i et lille oplag på ca. 1000 flasker.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2010
Bottle. Pours a nice brown/ maroon red color with a big creamy beige head, that leaves some awsome lacing! Aroma is of caramel, chocolate, dark fruit and a slight vinous note. Flavor is of sweet malts, caramel chocolate and both dried and non-dried dark fruits. I also get a hint of berries, and also that vinous note. Body is full with a creamy mouthfeel. Overall a different Old Ale that is very good, especially as its one of the brewery’s first beers!

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2010
(Bottled, 0.5l) Deep, clear blood red with a small, lightly tanned head. Aroma of dried fruit, toffee-caramely malt, warming alcohol, and somewhat christmasy spices. Flavor is also dried-fruity, very caramely-malty, lightly spicy and salty flavor. Almost full, thickly-malty body with low carbonation. A quite nice and christmasy old ale to be sipped in July :). 6237
