COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Øl i meget gamle dage var sort, brunt og skident. Sidstnævnte betød blot, at det var ufiltreret. Det bedste øl blev brygget på klostrene overalt i Nordeuropa. Blandt de dygtigste var cisterciensermunkene, der skabte fornemt øl af gode landbrugsvarer.
Vi har brygget en gammeldags munkeøl – opkaldt efter biskop Eskil, der grundlagde en række klostre i 1100-tallets Danmark. Mest kendt er nok Esrum Kloster i Nordsjælland. Vi hylder hans minde med en behagelig humlet, knaldsort øl, der har fået tilsat belgisk overgær. Det er en øl, som kan nydes i en blød stol eller til et dansk frokostbord. En øl til alle tider.
Eskil er blevet til i et samarbejde mellem forfatter Carsten Berthelsen og Hornbeer. Carsten Berthelsen, har skrevet en række bøger om øl og kultur.

Erzengel (5282) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2015
Best before 07.06.2016. The beer starts fresh and malty. Not too intense, hints of chocolate or caramel. The beginning is malty. Not too deep. The nice dry chocolate-nuts aroma arrive in the aftertaste and stay not too long. Malty hints, no bitterness. A bit boring.

Cool_Bond (1978) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2015
Light fruity and lightly malty aroma. Taste is caramel malt, chocolate and soy. Maybe a little metal also in taste but not much. Wonderful bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth for a long while. Really tasty and sweet beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Beergaard (189) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2014
Black brownish beer, creamy brown head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, brown bread. Taste of fermented and dried fruit, pumpernickel, bitter chocolate and something different I can’t put words on. Maybe something metallic, but not in an unpleasant way. Interesting beer.
