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.

sunevdj (3176) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2009
Bottled at home. Pours a clear brown with a small, beige, diminishing head. Smells of caramel malts. Sweet with aromas of caramel and alcohol. Some nuts and residual sugars. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Only a bit of bittering hops in the finish with sweetness. Did somebody say imperial brown ale?

Hazy brown color with a fine light brown head. Malty nutty aroma with notes of caramel and soaked bread. Flavor is sweet nutty with a nice alchohol feeling and some choclate like bittersweetnotes. Good one

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2009
Dark brown with an ok head. Aroma of hazelnuts, roasted malts and alcohol - perhaps a bit of basement too. The flavour is not really that harmonic - a bit on the heavy side with rye bread dominating combined with a bit of chocolate and caramel.

henrikb (1258) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2009
Bottle - Light chestnut body with a quite large creamy but fast disappering beige head; Very intense deep darker roasted aromas, I cant really figure what it is but something really nice and sweet is in it; Lightly red dried fruity body with a huge soft carbonation, roasted malt bitter and some sweetness, a little strange; Long very full finish, again very roasted to almost burnt (to much) mixed with lots of darker sweeter aromas and a dry earthy hop bitterness. Quite confusing that doesn’t really come together, the roast, the sweetness, the bitterness, the dry parts it is a little to much.

[Bottle @ Odense Tasting, 14th February 2009]
Thank you, Madsnp
Pours red-brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has a little fruit, weak roasted notes and some cocoa-powder to it. Low carbonation, okay, dry mouthfeel. Flavour is dry and grainy, lots of chocolate. Feels a bit out of balance with the harsh chocolate notes. It still fairly drinkable, though.
