Danish: Den mørke lagerøl er brygget efter Carlsbergs ældste opskrift, som blev til for 150 år siden. Det er en tør og fyldig øl, med en lang blød eftersmag, hvor du bl.a. kan fornemme karamel og nødder. Duften har lidt lakrids, og frugter som æble og pære over sig.

English: Original Dark Lager is brewed according to J.C. Jacobsen’s original recipe. The colour is chestnut. It has a Hersbrucker hop aroma while the floor malted Munich malt adds a caramel character. The carbonisation is gentle and the hop bitterness is soft. Enjoy at 6-8º.

An acidic beginning gives way to a beautiful malt backbone. Nice caramel touches throughout. I’d drink this again.

God mørk lager øl. tør og fyldig. Let duft af karamel/lakrids. Lidt for mørk efter min smag.

Copenhagen 25/1 2015. 75 cl bottle from Føtex. Pours brown with off-white head. Slowly subsiding. Aroma of toffee and coffee - slightly bitter. Medium carbonation. Taste is sweetish - toffee and chocolate - with notes of coffee and a little bitterness in aftertaste. Nice combination of bitterness and sweetness - and quite light taste.

Beer4000 (4981) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2014
330 ml bottle @ Bodils Kro, Skagen. Clear, dark brown body with a small off-white head that disappears fast. Plain aroma of dark malt. Flavor is mild roasted dark malt, quite smooth, low bitterness makes it feel rather sweet. Medium body and a bit short in aftertaste. Straight forward, easy and a bit one dimensional but goes well together with the fish.

Malty aroma. The flavor is malty and of light hops and wort easy. Good bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth of a weak moment. Not so good anyways. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

’Münchener’ Dunkel made by Jacobsen, a brewery opened by Carlsberg in 2005 and named after Carlsberg’s 19th-century founder, allegedly brewed to a recipe by himself. Light beige, moussy, stable head, colour a deep chestnut brown with bronze hue, clear. Aroma of caramel, roasted beef, barbecue sauce, walnuts, black pepper. Malty taste, well-rounded, caramelly and nutty, smooth with light sourish touch, leafy hop bitterness in the finish, medium thin mouthfeel, but it’s a lager after all. And an interesting one indeed.
