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.

Pours dark brown, with a white head. Strong malty chocolate aroma. Medium body and smooth mouthfeel. Chocolate flavor with slight note of sourness. Dark fruits; like raisins in the background. Very drinkable.

rane (848) - Nibe, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2009
Bottle. A fine beer. Mahogany brown with medium pale brown head. Aroma malty with some nice haselnutt aromas, toffeeas well. Taste malty, sweet, ends with some hoppy bitterness, that I find gets a little too much, but otherwise a very nice beer. I have to say it, this is the most interesting danish brewery at the moment., but of cause it doesn´t have the Mikkeller name to rise the ratings.

[Bottle @ Odense Tasting, 14th February 2009, remembered for Carsten BeerMouths fantastic 3 meals highend gastronomy.] Although it’s long time I’ve tasted these brewdrops I remember a challenging flavor combination of old-alenotes and chocolate. Great!

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2009
Bottled. Thanks to Anders Holmskär. Brown colour with nuances of red. Average-sized off-white head. Good malty aroma with chocolate, caramel and hazelnuts. Suggestions of old here, as in a very subtle acidity. Medium-semi big mouthfeel with lots of caramel along with chocolate and hazelnuts again. The alcohol presence adds nicely to flavour. Hops are there somewehre but just vaguely and very balancing. Tasty beer with a character of its own.

jesperhammer (2646) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle. Tasted at Ulkløbben. Very dark brown with almost white head. Very malty (chocolate and charamel), and quite hoppy as well. Somewhat creamy. It is very understated, and one for a quiet corner. I like it a lot. Some might find it a bit too sweet, bit i find it balanced nicely by the bitternes (50 IBU). Overall the one word might be "balance".
