Danish: Ærøskøbing Dark Ale er en fryd for øjet og ganen. Den dybe mahognirøde farve er fremkommet ved at blande vand fra Rise, pale ale bygmalt, karamel bygmalt, sukker, sort bygmalt og tørristet hvede. De anvendte humlesorter er engelsk first gold og amerikansk cascade. Der er tilsat ascorbinsyre (E300). Der er anvendt engelsk overgær. Smagen er meget fyldig og kompleks - først maltagtig med et anstrøg af lakrids, efterfulgt af en fabelagtig aromatisk, frugtagtig bitter eftersmag. <br /><br /> English: A beer after the traditional recipe of brewmaster Stig Anker Andersen, this beer is a real adventure for the taste buds. It looks good and tastes great. The deep mahogany-red color is derived from a mixture of Pale Ale barley malt, caramel malt, black malt and toasted wheat. The hops used are English First Gold and American Cascade. The taste is complex, first malty with a tinge of liquorice, followed by a fantastic aromatic and fruity and bitter aftertaste. Especially imported English brewer’s yeast and local ground water is used for this unique brew.

Xavalias (280) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2015
Pours dark brown with a red hue and a medium creamy off-white head, good persistence, lots of lacing. The aroma is of roasted malts, bits of chocolate, dark fruits, light hops. The smell is really nice with some sugar and caramel. The taste is light sweet, medium bitter. Smooth palate, pretty nice brown.

DraftDodger (1355) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 15, 2015
Copenhagen 15/4 2015. 50 cl bottle from Fakta. Pours clear dark brown with off-white head. Dissolves to 0,5 cm thick lacing. Aroma is a little sweet and fruity with notes of caramel. Medium carbonation. Taste is suprisingly bitter with only a little fruity sweetness. Bitter coffee in the aftertaste. A bitter surprise - but not a bad one.

KoNrRiI (1413) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2015
0.5 bottle. Clear, brown color with a reddish tinge and a small, off-white head of good retention. Aroma of dark malts, wood, grain, some fruits, delicate cascade hops. Taste is obviously sweet, malty, a tad salty, some licorice. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is much fruitier, a tad sourer, quite soft and soothing. Overall a standard beer in this style, nothing to brag about.

Lover mere i duften end hvad smagen kan holde. Flot skum. Fin okker rød farve. Klistret fornemmelse i munden. Udemærket bitter eftersmag.

Bottle, 6.0%. Malty aroma, lightly roasted. Clear dark brown colour. Big stable light brown head. The flavour is roasted with a little roast barley bitterness. Nutty aftertaste. Pleasant and well-rounded. The late bitterness is fairly high, but clean and good.
