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.

Grovlam (4154) - 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.

jesperhammer (2893) - 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".

sayravai (4674) - 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

rane (878) - 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.

The color is a beautiful, red mahogany and the head is creamy. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and dark fruits. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, dark fruits, citrus, bitter chocolate and it is very harmonic and nice.
