Dark horse er en mørk øl efter tysk forbillede-en sort tysk lagerøl der specielt har været brygget i landets østlige del. Selvom farven er den samme som en porter er den mere let i sin krop og mindre bitter. Det er mere bitter end mange tyske schwartsbier, men det er som ikke noget negativt ved. Den har en god sødme, god uden at det opvejer den bitre smag. Den har noter af kaffe, lakrids og lidt brændt smag.

DraftDodger (882) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2016
Copenhagen 29/1 2015. 50 cl bottle from Fakta. Bought under the name "Dark Horse". Horsey silhouette on the label. Pours hazy dark reddish brown with off-white head. Head disappears completely leaving flimsy patches of foam. Aroma is sweet and buttery. Caramel and a little roasted malts. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Taste is roasted malts, harsh butter with sugary notes. Aftertaste is bitter in a harsh kind of way. Not an especially pleasant experience. Too much butter and sugar for me.

Farven er mørk rav med en beige skumkrone. Aromaen og smagen er malt, karamel, humle og (især i smagen) kaffe.

TorbenJensen (1432) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2015
The aroma is very composed of the dark malts and has a subtle aroma of bitter chocolate. Tastes quite sweet compared to other Dunkel, but still in a balanced manner in which flavors like coffee and licorice come to terms with the aforementioned bitter chocolate. Malt helps to give it a full body and there is a comfortable and long-lasting hop bitterness.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2015
Fuck the man I’m drinking this from the bottle. Bitter sour chalky coffee sweetness. Roasted malts almost a toffee. Flavorless hops with a coffee like bitter lingering after each sip. Way smoother then I thought it would be. I’m enjoying this more then I though I would. For such a boring style this is ok to drink. Starting to turn into a cold cup of coffee. This gets a MEH+

Svart aroma av kaffe, sorte oliven og karamell. Middels lett fylde, fin friskhet og lett sødme. God øl, i en litt merkelig stil.

Cunningham (6555) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2015
Deep dark color with a fine off white head. Mostly a bit sweet toffee aroma with some roasted notes. Medium body. A bit unbalanced over to the swet side. Average carbonation. Toffee, some coffee and mild fruity flavor. A bit to sweet, but still easy drinkable.
[Bottle from a local grocery store in Copenhagen, Denmark]
