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.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris O’s Night of the Gaylords.
Murky amber brown with a thin off white head. Big cheesey malt and plenty of fruit. Some chocolate and coffee plus some pleasant resinous hoppage. Straight forward but nice enough. Had a lot better from Beer Here though.

harrisoni (13248) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2010
Bottle at Chriso Gaylord tasting 09. I got this from a trade with The Wolf I think. Choc aroma. Really drinkable. Rather good in mouth, lovely and creamy swallow. Good. I love Christian, one of the world’s great brewers, but I hear he is not brewing anymore. I hope this is wrong as he has created some of the best beers I’ve had.

Plovmand (6309) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2010
Bottle. Brown body with a creamy longlasting off white head. Quite vinous light alcoholic aroma with notes of caramel, raisins, brown sugar and syrup. The flavour is caramel, vanilla, berries, jam, brown sugar, light chocolate, light roasted and raisins. Finish is light alcoholic warming.

MPA (782) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - DEC 25, 2009
Dark with beige head. Toasted malts in aroma along with wood, ripe fruit, berries and acid. It’s complex and vinous but too vague in the tart, acidic and unique characteristics. Very different in flavour: ripe fruit and toasted malts still present, but now there’s also a little cocoa and coffee. The tartness is gone along with the berries. Solid bottom and a powerfull body but lacks the promise of freshness, that the aroma delivers. Still a good beer that does however become seasonal.

Rune (7777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2009
500ml bottle bought at Ølbutikken in Copenhagen in mid-May this year and matured in my cellar for a few months. Fading, off-white head. Spotty lacework on the glass. Deep, ruby coloured body. Aroma of semi-sweet malts joined by dry hops. Quite nice blended of brown and black malts in flavour with notes of dark fruits breaking through. Discreet yeasty hints towards the ending. Medium bodied. Fine drinkability and just alright relaxing at home on a Friday evening (Tromsø, 16.10.2009).

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2009
0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Slightly hazy reddish brown color. Sweet, tart, chocolatey and slightly sweaty aroma with raspberry and licorice. The flavors of toffee, licorice, chocolate, raspberry and strawberry. There is something I cannot get hold of. I’m not sure if I would like to have another bottle.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2009
Dark red-brown colored with little light brown head. Chocolate dominates with berries, hops come up also here. Medium bodied. Flavor also has berries dominating with thinner chocolate, aftertaste dries with berries still lasting. Rather one-dimensional, still ok brew.

yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2009
Bottle. A dark ruby, slightly hazy beer with a creamy beige head on top. Caramel, a little oxidized touch, resiny hops and alcohol on the nose. The flavor starts caramel sweet with some oxidation notes, then the resiny hops and alcohol fights its way through, and the beer finishes bitter and slightly warming. Full-bodied, warming and with an appropriate level of carbonation. All in all it’s a slightly boring and strange old ale, sort of missing something. Far from bad though. �)
