COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: På Amager Bryghus har vi altid med stor fornøjelse nydt at åbne dørene for gæstebryggere fra den ganske verden. Black Nitro er således et samarbejde med den amerikanske græsrodsølhippie Shaun E. Hill, som har været med til bringe Nørrebro Bryghus frem i eliten af innovative danske bryghuse, og nu er på vej med sit eget projekt Hill Farmstead Brewery tilbage i hjemstaten Vermont. Til Black Nitro valgte Shaun at grave en gammel opskrift frem fra hans helt unge år som brygger. Mørke IPA’er er en trend fra USA, som med denne øl nu også har ramt Danmark. Farven er mørkebrun på vej mod det sorte, men ved anvendelse af en særlig teknik har vi undgået de brændte toner, som normalt følger med de mørke malte. Aromaen er kan vel nærmest beskrives som bredspektret humle gennem anvendelsen af en vifte af noble amerikanske sorter. Så er du til mørke og fyldige øl og samtidig nyder de fantastiske duftindtryk fra god amerikansk aromahumle, så er vi ikke i tvivl om, at du hermed har fundet en ny yndlingsøl. En varm tak til Shaun og et stort held og lykke med hans eget bryggeri. Ingredienser: Maris Otter bygmalt, lys karamelmalt, sortmalt, havre, hvede, humle, vand og amerikansk overgær.

Pression à Lausanne Beer Celebration - De couleur noir avec une bonne mousse beige crémeuse - Au nez des arômes herbacé, café, malt rôti, agrumes, pamplemoussen orange, citron, et beaucoup de resine - En bouche une explosion de houblon et une bonne grosse amertume laisse apparaître un côté très résineux et agrumeux, le malt rôti garde bien sa place et laisse quelques arômes de reglisse et de sauce soja. Impressionnant - Corp moyen, amertume fort, carbonation correcte, AMERE, final résineus et café - Une black IPA tres impressionnante, vraiment incroyable

mcberko (12863) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2016
On tap at Foresters Hall, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out a mix of roasted malt and light piney hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with light roasted malt and harsh piney hops. Rather astringent. Pretty harsh but it’s okay. Probably a function of the beer traveling such a far distance but this isn’t great as is.

15.04.2016, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Nice light brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry roasted, leafs, dark malts, hops, minerals, licorice, weeds, grass, bark, hints of soap. Taste is dry foresty, weeds, hops, leafs, dark malts, pine needles, grass, minerals, bark, sour coffee, licorice. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly dry and harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough.

onceblind (6740) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2016
Black pour--a good start. Thin foamy ivory head. Lovely nose with some black malty depth and a touch of molasses and lots of roast. Slightly earthy bitter on the aroma as well. Smooth and balanced flavor full of black malt roast, lovely earthy and leafy hop presence, dark cacao, a semisweet malty body, and a slightly earthy finish. Pleasant, but nothing out of this world.

williamherbert (1473) - Syracuse, New York, USA - APR 8, 2016
Deep dark brown-black; huge head. Aroma is dry stout. Flavor is burnt cookies and chili peppers. Slick and oily. This style is really hard to pull off and they nail it. Not as hoppy as you might expect.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2016 Draft. A well-made black ipa not too disjointed as many in the style can be, nice stuff.
