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.

Brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is dominated by spice, but has some decent nutty malt behind it. I sense cookie spices and herbs, too dominating, but at least blending nicely together for a unique aroma. Sweetish malty flavour with the herbs and spices mostly entering the aftertaste.

trapez (1514) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2010
Bottle. A copy of Brøckhouse brew. Pine cone, anis and alcohol in aroma. Dark redbrown colour with beige head. spicy flavour with plenty of anis, pine cone and pepper and discrete hops. Not the same malt sweetness and soft mouthfeel as in the original Esrum Kloster, but very spicy.

larsga (6146) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2010
Small beige head. Dark brown body. Dense licorice and anise aroma with spicy herbal notes. Dry-sweetish licorice and anise taste with chocolatey cinnamon notes. Light body. Mild mouthfeel. Dryish chocolate and licorice aftertaste with herbal spicy yeasty notes. Quite nice, but a bit dense and unsubtle with that strong anise taste. I preferred the Brøckhouse version, really. (0.5l draft on Oslo-CPH ferry.)

50 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 06.07.2013
Aroma has anise, licorice and herbal notes – feels like a fresh bottle of Gouden Carolus Christmas. Flavour is quite spicy with herbal notes, rosemary, some anise and hints of licorice. Aroma was nice but I find the rosemary in the flavour quite disturbing.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2009
Botle 50 cl. Pours a clear orangey brown with a delicious and creamy off-white head leaving laces. Extreme aroma of star anise. Solid body, roasted malts, caramel and resin but pretty much everything is overpowered by the star anise. No bitterness. Overly spiced. 221009

Plovmand (6323) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown with a medium off white head. The aroma is very spicy. Anise and fennel in front with lime or balm notes. Caramel on the sweet side. Lots of spices in the flavour with anise as the dominating part. Also ginger. Good caramel to back it up. If you like spicy beers this one is for you.

Bottled at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Hazy ruby, no head. Arome of aniseed, other herbs and cherries. Sweet and fruity with medium-full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Grainy with slight herbal bitterness. Interesting stuff.
