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.

Beergaard (52) - 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.
