Danish: l i meget gamle dage var sort, brunt og skident. Sidstnvnte betd blot, at det var ufiltreret. Det bedste l blev brygget p klostrene overalt i Nordeuropa. Blandt de dygtigste var cisterciensermunkene, der skabte fornemt l af gode landbrugsvarer.
Vi har brygget en gammeldags munkel opkaldt efter biskop Eskil, der grundlagde en rkke klostre i 1100-tallets Danmark. Mest kendt er nok Esrum Kloster i Nordsjlland. Vi hylder hans minde med en behagelig humlet, knaldsort l, der har fet tilsat belgisk overgr. Det er en l, som kan nydes i en bld stol eller til et dansk frokostbord. En l til alle tider.
Eskil er blevet til i et samarbejde mellem forfatter Carsten Berthelsen og Hornbeer. Carsten Berthelsen, har skrevet en rkke bger om l og kultur.

BlazerT (988) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep brown, with small to medium light brown, semi-densed head. Medicare head retention and lacing. Candy-like aroma along with some dark fruits, nutty, also some caramel with hints of chocolate. Taste is medium sweet, slightly acidic, light bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is acidic and malty. Nothing special, nothing outstanding, but as a brown ale this one is not so boring in taste and aroma.

Eskil has a nice rich aroma of smoke and licorice. The taste is a little watery in the beginning, but soon it takes over with smoke, tar, hard toasted malt and plenty of peat. It is a really nice, mellow and satisfying brown ale.

Erzengel (8447) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2015
Best before 07.06.2016. The beer starts fresh and malty. Not too intense, hints of chocolate or caramel. The beginning is malty. Not too deep. The nice dry chocolate-nuts aroma arrive in the aftertaste and stay not too long. Malty hints, no bitterness. A bit boring.

Cool_Bond (2571) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2015
Light fruity and lightly malty aroma. Taste is caramel malt, chocolate and soy. Maybe a little metal also in taste but not much. Wonderful bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth for a long while. Really tasty and sweet beer. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Yorker (1955) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2015
50 cl bottle @ home. Pours murky brown with some sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are dried fruit, yeast, chocolate, and a little roasted malt - with a bitter finish.

Beergaard (334) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2014
Black brownish beer, creamy brown head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, brown bread. Taste of fermented and dried fruit, pumpernickel, bitter chocolate and something different I cant put words on. Maybe something metallic, but not in an unpleasant way. Interesting beer.
