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.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2009
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Clear orangey brown with a nice, off-white head. Discreet nutty nose. Quite full-bodied, nutty accents with a little caramel and a fairly bitter and alcoholic finish. Not really that exciting. 010209

Pinball (10702) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2009
bottle from ølbutikken. cloudy dark brown, thick light brown head. aroma is chocolate, toffee, roasted malts, flavor is malty, roasted malts, dark chocolate, s little toffee (too much, i hate toffee), mouthfeel is round, overall impression is mild and inviting,but you have to be into chocolate and sweet beers.

Christian (11025) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2009
Copper with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, hard roasted malt, fruity yeast and possibly a touch of American hops? A rich and sweet malty flavour with just enough hops. Again there is a hard roasted note, and I don’t like it. I can see on the label that it’s cold extract of chocolate malt - it should make it gentler, but didn’t work well enough for my taste. The mouthfeel is huge, just as it should in a malt heavy strong ale.

Ungstrup (29110) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2009
Bottled. A hazy chestnut colored beer with a huge orangey head. The aroma is malty with notes caramel and bread. The flavor is sweet with notes caramel, nuts, bread, brown sugar, and alcohol, leading to a dry malty and alcoholic.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2009
50 cl. Bottle. Small off-white head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Mahogany color. Quite thick aroma almost like port wine, also malt, chocolate, hint of coffee like and roasted malty notes, floral and light alcohol. Full bodied with a soft carbonation and mild dry alcoholic texture. Strong sweet flavor with good counter bitterness. Lingering roasted malty and nutty warming finish.

yespr (30713) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2009
50 cL bottle. Pours hazy dark orange to brown with a diminished off-white head. Dark breadish malty and fruity dense aroma. Yeasty too. Sweet caramel malty, smooth roasted malty, nicely hoppy counterbalance. Mild yeasty presence and lovely caramel and breadish roasted malty presence. Lasting fruity impression of yeasty, solid roasted malt, quite hoppy and lingering warmth from the alcohol. Well done.

Skinnyviking (6772) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle. High and long lasting creamy off-white head. Hazy dark red brown body. Mild berries aroma with a spicy note. Relatively bitter spicy and hoppy flavor with a bit of caramel. The lable claims that the beer has been brewed with choccolate malt. Sorry but I: can neither smell nor taste it. High carbonation, long bitter aftertaste.
