Danish: Tanken bag “Mørke” er opstået ud fra mit ønske om at skabe en øl, der har de samme kvaliteter som det mørke, krydrede og sødlige pumpernickel rugbrød. Den er derfor brygget med bl.a. maltet rug, mørkt sukker og fennikelfrø og kun let humlet.

blipp (7182) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Bottle. Pours near black with a tan head. Roasty, almost smoky aroma, with a hint of coffee. The flavor has roasted malts, darker chocolate, rye like malts, and a nice dry roasty finish. Very tasty.

Cybercat (4164) - Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2009
Comes out of the bottle (foaming like nobody’s business!) a very dark sable, only a whisker above black, with a very thick, fine-bubbled, light beige head. Rich aroma is smoky with an overtone of fresh pumpernickel bread and hints of malt and molasses. Mouth-filling flavor is like liquid pumpernickel with mocha and molasses undertones and just a teeny hint of hops and a whisper of sweetness. Lively, fizzy texture is fairly smooth and leaves a nice tingle.

mpersinger (360) - , California, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Pours a rich brown appropriate for style. Flavor dominated by dark malts (carafa) with a bright note (from rye probably) and a smoke note. There is also some esters, rather than super clean lager yeast notes. Residual sugars balance the alcohol leaving a sweet finish.

deyholla (8559) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Bottle. Poured black with a nice woody brown head. Aroma was full of roasted malts, a bit of rye, cinnamon and a touch of coffee. Flavor had strong roasted malts with undertones of rye, cinnamon and coffee. Smooth and thick on the tongue.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Half liter bottle. Pours almost black with a light brown head. Aroma of some chocolate, roast and spices: mint, and a fairly strong hop presence- citrus, floral, slightly piney. A good amount of caramel and toffee as well. Taste is very malty, with roast, coffee, licorice, caramel, toffee and brown sugar. A good amount of hop presence with citrus and pine. I was hoping to get more rye or more specifically caraway. regardless, this was a very nice beer. Bitterness gets fairly strong in the finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 22, 2009
.5 liter bottle, from Wine and Liquor Outlet- Boonton, NJ. Pours a rich dark black with a nice lasting foamy tight light khaki head. Aroma is sligith minty green fresh pnw hops, toast, toffee sweetness, roast, char, chocolate, and some coffee- lots of green piny hops, and a sharp moderate amount of licorice and anise, and root beer- which added with the pnw hops kinda seems like mt rainier on steroids. Flavor is cola, root beer, licorice root, pine mint, moderate toffee and malty sweetness, ok roast, low chocolate, low to med coffee with a dry mineral chalk-like finish- smooth and a fading mouthfeel and a fleeting aftertaste- bitterness is ok though. I didn’t get enough pumpernickel overall like I had expected or wanted, but it turned into a very unique, hopped out herbed out export stout. Pretty tasty and easy drinking.

17thfloor (2439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours a beautiful creamy dark shinny brown with a fantastic dense tall foamy light mocha colored head that fades into a nice froth. Aroma is quite complex, at first quite roasty and robust, then some gin like juniper berry, then becomes very sweet and bright, fennel and vanilla, yams, lots of spicy rye, some very smooth creamy chocolate, does a pretty good job of resembling pumpernickel, lots of elements. Flavor follows but is more earthy, flavor is quite close to pumpernickel, spicy and a touch of bright sweetness, rye bread but mixed with sour cream, touch of chocolate, some hop bitterness, some of that buttery vegetable character, slightly dull and muted, touch of hard roast, lots of fennel, a bit metallic in the aftertaste. Medium/full bodied, very creamy with some sharper sizzling carbonation, oily and slick. I’m not sure why this one isn’t in the spice/herb/vegetable category... it clearly belongs there.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - DEC 19, 2009
20091219 50cl bottle from State Line. Darkest brown with a thick brown head that lasts, the beer has a thick, viscous appearance and coats the glass. Aroma has a rich, fruity beginning with prune, blueberry, and some dark cocoa, but with a bit of swirling the rye emerges as well as a sour yeastiness and the beer unquestionably does smell like pumpernickel bread. I’ll be damned. Mouthfeel is rich and lush up front and creamy across the middle with an unctuousness that tends toward sticky without ever getting sweet. A fair amount of roasted dark malt flavor that adds an intriguing earthy quality, leather and shoe polish, cigar. Nice beer.

abemorsten (3288) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2009
Batch # 425. Black with a huge creamy brown and lasting head. Beautiful! Aroma of roasted barley, soy sauce and coffee. Sweet and acidic taste. Medium bodied and a milky smooth mouth feel. Recommended! (Bottle, courtesy of tarjei 12.12.2009)
