ØLFABRIKKEN DARK MILD is our march experimental ale and our interpretation of the British worker's favourite ale. Dark Mild is unusually complex for a beer with such modest alcohol content. It is a bit hoppier than traditional milds and as such more refreshing. The malt profile is adjusted with a pinch of molasses sugar, providing notes of dark rum. Ølfabrikken Dark Mild is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and bottle conditioned like all of our beers.

Koelschtrinker (17704) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 10, 2011
Danke an den Doppelbock für die Ermöglichung dieses Tests. Der Geruch erinnert an Duschgel und wirkt künstlich. Das Bier hat einen ganz eigenen, aber nicht schlechten Ton. Dazu ist es malzig, im Abgang stark röstmalzern. Merkwürdig aber gut. Test vom 15.6.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,8,9,9,10,9 - 8,90

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle at Copenhagen Oldage on 20 May 2006. Not a particularly dark mild - more of a reddish copper colour. Much more hoppy than the norm. Hardly a mild in any sense that would be understood in the UK but pretty tasty.

yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 26, 2007
Bottle. It looks clear, copper color and a small, beige head. Chocolate, mocha and some coffee in the aroma. Malty flavor, balanced by a nice hop-level, but maybe a bit sweet. Medium body and a balanced finish with a pronounced maltyness and hoppiness and some caramel-like notes. A really nice one considering the low ABV. (070413)

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2007
Muddy brown, dark mahogany. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and yeast. The flavour is slightly sweet with notes of caramel and roasted malt, and the body is quite full.

MPA (977) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - DEC 2, 2006
Bottle. Hazy brown with a shortlived off white head. Sweet caramel along with fresh hops gives an amazing aroma. Flavour of tobacco, licorice and hops. Delicous beer!

Enjoyit (3757) - Vadum, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2006
Brown and hasy of color. Nice fresh hopy aroma a la Pale Ale. Toffee and choko ind the taste. Did MPA sweat in my beer? smells like that...

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a slightly hazy orangey brown with an off-white head. Becomes extremely muddy as you reach the yeast sediment. Discreet aroma of roasted malt. Fairly light body with flavours of coffee and lightly burned malts. Discreet underlying sweetness. A light bitterness in the finish from the burned malts. Very quaffable. 300906

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2006
Confusing or at least untraditional style as the hopping is clearly American. Nonetheless, a nice and pleasant ale with a fine balance.
