Danish: Tanken bag “Mørke” er opstået ud fra mit ønske om at skabe en øl, der har de samme kvaliteter som det mørke, krydrede og sødlige pumpernickel rugbrød. Den er derfor brygget med bl.a. maltet rug, mørkt sukker og fennikelfrø og kun let humlet.
The foam is high, creamy and great nougat colored. The aroma offers luscious malt and clear signs of freshly baked rye bread. It is a very rich porter, where especially the sweet malt notes in the beginning has taken over. Later, the hint of dark bitter chocolate and a light, somewhat indefinable, spicy flavor. The sweetness is slightly sugary, but in a way that complements the taste really well. As a whole is as liquid bread, however, without being for peanuts like. In the end, the top of that one nicely marked hop bitterness. More proficient beer enthusiasts have taught me that it does not belong entirely at home in a real porter, and that it is slightly "American". The first time I encountered aggressive hops in a porter was with Gonzo Imperial Porter from Flying Dog - and here I was sold on the spot. Dark Pumpernickel Porter is certainly not an inferior one porter Gonzo, so I can probably not avoid giving it top points. The other beers I have tasted from Beer Here has moved too wild about my perception of beer. I shall certainly investigate a little more in Beer Here.
