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.

Clear dark copper, small offwhite head. Malty aroma with hints of hops. Malty, caramelly flavour. Ok balanced but not that interesting.

Lover mere i duften end hvad smagen kan holde. Flot skum. Fin okker rød farve. Klistret fornemmelse i munden. Udemærket bitter eftersmag.

Bottle, 6.0%. Malty aroma, lightly roasted. Clear dark brown colour. Big stable light brown head. The flavour is roasted with a little roast barley bitterness. Nutty aftertaste. Pleasant and well-rounded. The late bitterness is fairly high, but clean and good.

Der Antrunk lässt viel erhoffen, leider ist es danach wässrig und ein bisschen leer. Schade, Bittere ist gut, da fehlt einfach Körper.
