COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Medium strong aroma has tar, french roast coffee, licorice, bit herbs and underneath some hoppiness. Dark brown, almost black. Thin beige head medium long and leaves lacing. Taste is dry roasted and bitter, medium body, soft feel, long dry-roasted finish. Overall a tasty beer worth tasting.

Nummer 1000! Jag skulle s grna ge den hr en 5:a. Dels fr jubileet, dels fr att jag medvetet sparat den hr len som br samma namn som min far och det knns s passande med honom och nummer 1000, men det hade ju nstan varit fr bra fr att vara sant om den visat sig vara s fantastisk. Emellertid r det en mycket god, en mycket trevlig brown ale. Mrkbrun med moccafrgat bubbligt skum. Stora mngder mrk choklad i aromen som sen fylls p med rda br och svagt kaffe. I smaken hittas en distinkt vanilj tillsammans med mrk choklad, rda pplen, kaffe. Munknslan r torr. Det blev inte en femma, men vl en fyra. Och kanske, kanske r det i verkant. Kanske sitter jag hr fredagen den 19 juli 2013 och blir sentimental i verkant och nskar ngot som inte gr att uppfylla. S m det d vara hnt. Detta r i slutndan en mycket god l, som frtjnar ett fint betyg. Och min far, m han vila i frid.

[Kpenhamns lfestival 2014] Det hr var en riktigt ra brown ale med mycket toner av kaffe och torkat grs. Kroppen var juste men balansen var fullndad.

Botella de 500ml. Copa Globo de Hornbeer. Saboreada en sep12. Brota con color marrn muy oscuro y capa bronceada. La espuma es cremosa, persistente que deja copos en las paredes. Las maltas tostadas dominan a los lpulos tanto en aromas como sabores. El cuerpo es ligero-medio y la carbonatacin moderada. El paladar de denso malteado se redondea con gentil amargor. Refrescante, sabrosa y de muy fcil asimilacin. Muy aconsejable al atardecer en das veraniegos. 500ml bottle. Hornbeer Snifter glass. Enjoyed on sep12. Pous very dark brown in color. Tan head is creamy, lasting & spotty. Toasted malts both in flavors & aromas overwhelmed hops. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dense malty mouthfeel rounded by gentle bitterness. Refreshing, flavorful & easy drinkable beer. Suggested early in the evening on summer days.

Cool_Bond (2433) - 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.

laiti (8171) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2013 Draught @ Olutravintola Konttori
Aroma is nice with toasted notes, coffee, chocolate and hints of berries. Flavour is rich on coffee. Also some dark chocolate, hints of berries and cocoa. A schwarzbier so roasted and rich it becomes a porter.

It seems that the style has been changed at rb from schwartzbier to brown ale.
50 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 03.07.2015
Aroma is quite light with berries, some roasted notes, coffee and hay. Flavour has berries, some roasted notes, ash and hints of vegetables. Definitely worse than the draught version. A slight feeling of contamination here.
