COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Ærøskøbing Dark Ale er en fryd for øjet og ganen. Den dybe mahognirøde farve er fremkommet ved at blande vand fra Rise, pale ale bygmalt, karamel bygmalt, sukker, sort bygmalt og tørristet hvede. De anvendte humlesorter er engelsk first gold og amerikansk cascade. Der er tilsat ascorbinsyre (E300). Der er anvendt engelsk overgær. Smagen er meget fyldig og kompleks - først maltagtig med et anstrøg af lakrids, efterfulgt af en fabelagtig aromatisk, frugtagtig bitter eftersmag. <br /><br /> English: A beer after the traditional recipe of brewmaster Stig Anker Andersen, this beer is a real adventure for the taste buds. It looks good and tastes great. The deep mahogany-red color is derived from a mixture of Pale Ale barley malt, caramel malt, black malt and toasted wheat. The hops used are English First Gold and American Cascade. The taste is complex, first malty with a tinge of liquorice, followed by a fantastic aromatic and fruity and bitter aftertaste. Especially imported English brewer’s yeast and local ground water is used for this unique brew.

BeerViking (2472) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle from Fakta supermarket, pours a deep red-brown with a settling beige head. Nose is honeyed fruit and grapefruit, body is an unusual combination of a rich malty and earthy backbone with hints of dark dried fruit plus a fresh sharp citrus hoppy character. Nice.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark brown-black with a small tan head. Aroma is caramel and roast malt and pine hops. Flavor is a mix of velvety chocolate malt with a bitter roast/burnt finish, and moderate hopping. Nice mix of sweet and bitter, with both hoppy and roast bitterness. I rather like it.

spoonie (20) - Glostrup, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2012 Dark and red color, minimal fading head, aroma is not especially powerful but nice with red berries and bitter-sweat malt character. The taste has the same character as the aroma, nicely balanced and not too sweet. Light roasty, hoppy and malty, with medium body and a palate that is not very long.
