Danish: En gang i mellem genfinder man sig i absurde situationer som tilsyneladende ingen udvej har – i hvert fald ikke indenfor situationens egen logik. En sådan ”Catch 22” kræver nytænkning – ja, et paradigme skift. Og da kan en roligt nydt øl gøre sande underværker – eller som man siger på Christiansø: Man ta´r sig en ”tænker”.
Vi finder at en Black Lager passer fint til disse situationer, hvor det kan sortne for en. Let drikkelig, så tankevirksomheden ikke bliver forstyrret af mavekneb, subtilt stimulerende, så inspirationen ikke tørrer ind, og moderat i sin styrke, så tankernes frugt ikke bliver overmoden. Undergæret.

Almost no flavor. What it does not have in the smell, it have in the taste, however. It has great taste of hard roasted malt and light tones of English liquorice. Very tasty and incredibly good.

larsga (7313) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2013
Big offwhite cream head rises out of the glass. Hazy amber body with visible carbonation. Earthy orangey spicy aroma with blackberry notes. Dry-sweet herbal orangey spicy taste with mealy peppery notes. Mid-bodied. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy coriander and cedar wood aftertaste with orangey notes. Decent, but a bit odd, and somewhat boring. (0.3l draft at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen.)

Braastad (458) - FINLAND - MAR 23, 2013
No much head and not so dark as expected. Aroma is bready, sweet. Light and watery on mouth but not disturbingly. Chocolate. Better than the aroma would have you think.

Erasmus_ro (2539) - Alabama, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a reddish dark brown with a small, latte-colored head. More of a ring of bubbles on the edges really. The very first whiff is strongly herbal. The next ones are roasted malt aromas: Caramel, semisweet coffee, roast, ground coffee beans, liquorice. Taste is roasted and coffee. Light mixed fruitiness there as well in the background. Palate is light with a lot of carbonation. A bit too much really.

Bottle from Alko. Dark brown color, beige head. Malty taste with chocolate, nuts, roasty aroma and bread. A bit thin body. Somewhat roasty finish with malts. Enjoyable, good brew.
