Danish: Skands Esrum Kloster er Bryggeriet Skands fortolkning af en klosteryg. Der er brugt krydderurter fra klostrets egen urtehave, bl.a. enebær, citronmelisse, lavendel, anis og rosmarin, alle urter som munkene brugte som smagsforstærkere. Esrum Kloster er en overgæret og har en dejlig mørk kastanjebrun farve, en aromatisk duft og smagen afrundes med en snert af anis.
Esrum Kloster er blankfiltreret.
Esrum Kloster egner sig fortrinligt til kraftige kødretter og vinter mad, men kan også nydes alene i en stille stund.

English: Skands Esrum is Skands Brewery interpretation of a klosteryg. I have used herbs from the monastery’s own herb garden, including juniper, lemon balm, lavender, anise and rosemary, all herbs which the monks used as flavor enhancers. Esrum is a top-fermented and has a lovely dark chestnut brown color, an aromatic fragrance and flavor rounded off with a hint of anise. Esrum is blank filtered. Esrum perfectly suited for heavy meat dishes and winter food, but can also be enjoyed alone in a quiet moment.

KoNrRiI (1042) - Århus, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2016
0.5 bottle. Clear, dark brown color with a medium, tanned head. Aroma of juniper, lemon grass, and other herbs. Taste is malty, sweet, a tad bitter in a herbal manner; anise and ginger feature most prominently here. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long, maltier though it still retains the strong herbal character. Overall not a bad beer though it is not very drinkable due to its unique set of strong, herbal traits.

Bottle shared thanks to HenrikSoegaard. Pours clear reddish brown with a ring tan head. Aroma of herbs, spice, aniseed, caramel and buttery notes. Flavour is over moderate sweet and light to light moderate bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Like some strange medicine, appropriate given the funny little bottle.

25 cl@Bartof in Trappist Glass@approx 6 degrees C. Pours deep dark brown with small beige head. Decidedly spizy aroma with a hint of campher making it slightly medicinal - a drawback in my book.. This is also found in the liquirice/anis dominated taste. Very interesting, very complex and certainly to be enjoyed slowly on a cold evening. Gets better as it heats up. One of those beers where you have to want to get into a deep, spizy, meditative experience - not just for everyday consumption or quenching your thirst.

Milter (681) - Nyborg, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2015 Ganske god øl, med en meget spændende smag. Flot farve og flot skum. Savner måske et pift i smagen.

Denne dejlige øl, hvor eftersmagen af lakrids/anis virkelig trænger igennem. Udseendet ligner ikke det man drikker. Den ligner en meget mørk og tung øl. Men er overraskende let i der ud fra udseendet.
