COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ørbæk Half & Half is a strong dark beer. It is full-bodied and warm with a smooth aftertaste of liqourice and caramel. Ørbæk Half & Half is brewed with the English Stout Porter type as model, but is slightly lighther in character. In Ørbæk we use selected malt types like Münchner og Carafa (darkroasted malt).

POLK (2195) - Hørning, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2011
Not much porter taste left in the half-and-half, but there is little. Actually, very delicious and easy-drinking dark beer.

Blom (831) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2009
Brown with a low head. Aroma of caramel and roasted malts. The roastiness continues in the flavour which is quite sweet, yet balanced. A bit watery perhaps, but nevertheless accepted.

Courtesy of Acertain. Thank you, Andrew. The aroma is very malted milk ball with a punch of cocoa, chocolate and dishes fresh from the washer with a hint of soap still on them. The body is a ruddy dark brown and holds a diminishing tan head. Caramel, cocoa and lots of malt powder with a fairly bitter hop/roast kick in the finish. It gets a little metallic twang in the far finish. The defining feature is however the chocolate/cocoa malted milk ball notes. The mouth feel is on the thin side, but not terribly so.

Dedollewaitor (13802) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2008
33cl bottle. Pours black with a brown head. Smooth caramel roast & liquirice. Light sweet & smooth - a bit of a weak body though. Low carbonation. Dominating sweetness. Mediocre all around - typical ørbæk!

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2008
Dark amber with no head. Roasted malt, coffee and caramel hits the nose. Flavor is rather sweet with roasted malt and caramel. Finishes light bitter.

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2007
[Sampled in 2005.] Funny mix of a porter and a pilsner. Despite its ABV it’s a bit watery. Notes of smoke, smoothness, roast and a flat finish.
