Swedish thrashers DARKANE have joined forces with Helsingborgs Brewery to create Darkale.
The band says: "You guessed it, we’re talking beer. Ale to be specific. This delightful ale will unfortunately only be available in Sweden." This fall, Helsingborgs Brewery will step over to the dark side to give you a delicious hybrid of thrash metal and Skåne ölkunnande. The result is a tough and complex ale, equally inspired by fair means commodities of ferocious double pedals and heavy riffs.
Meet Darkale, a proud partnership with Helsingborg, Sweden-based band DARKANE. You get a dark and tasty brew with unexpected nuances and many levels. Helsingborgs Brewery describes Darkale as a "dark mahogany red-brown ale with a light foam. The taste is a bit malty with some burnt notes and caramel fudge. Easy hopped with fruity and some ortiga tones. Easy to drink for its variety and is perfect for your favorite metal music and some snacks. "
Says DARKANE: "We are extremely proud of this collaboration. "We started actually recording our latest album, 'The Sinister Supremacy', which came out last summer, with a beer tasting at Helsingborgs Brewery and already there were sown enough seeds of this amazing collaboration. We hope all the avid beer drinking headbangers around the country will like this ale as much as we do."
Darkale will be on sale at Systembolaget in the Helsingborg vicinity and in the rest of the Sweden through Systembolaget's ordering catalog from the middle of October and for a limited period.
