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.

Sigmund (5449) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2015
500 ml bottle, batch #916, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.5%. Malts are pale, dehusked chocolate, wheat, cara.hell and crystal. Hops are Herkules, Tomahawk, Amarillo, Simcoe, Cascade and Centennial. Yeast is US-Ale. Very dark brown to black colour, large beige head. Strong hoppy aroma, notes of pine, spruce and grapefruit, hints of tropical fruits and chocolate. Hoppy flavour too, but not extreme. Piney and grapefruity notes, with a distinct hoppy and roasty bitterness in the finish and long aftertaste. Good beer.

Kauge (445) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle from Uba ja Humal in Tallinn (€ 4.90). Batch 916. BB 12.2015. Pours dark brown with a huge but fast receding big-bubbled tan head. Nose… lush, perfumey, tropical, musky, and only somewhat roasty, some burnt caramel maybe, hint of saltiness. Taste is equally bewildering with more of a roasty sweet character, with loads of strong bitterness in the finish, which is nicely balanced out by the lavish hops. Strangely, as someone else pointed out, there is a faint farmhouse moment in this. Which… I do like. Has way more body than the many recent Polish BIPA-s I’ve had - and I mean it’s pretty full. Then again, I would like a bit more of carbonation - here there’s nearly no hint of it, only when I take a big gulp I get some thin fizziness. Overall it’s still splendid.

500ml bottle. Pitch black body with a medium tan crown. Citrus and pine dominates initially, followed by tropical fruit notes. Finishes roasty and dry, with notes of coffee and dark chocolate.

Ingevara (826) - SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2015
Tar black. Frothy tinted head. Flavor of dark chocolate and bitter coffee enhanced by lots of hops, There is molasses and smoke, hints of resin and dried figs. Rich in flavor, but not my favorite.

Vestergaard (617) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a murky dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma has lots of fruity hops, roasty malts and some yeasty notes. Taste has sweeter fruits at first, but gets more bitter and hoppy with both fruity, coffee and roasty notes. Nice and refreshing. Medium carbonation and medium body.

DrowningInBeer (33) - SPAIN - FEB 11, 2015
Black IPA with strong pine and hop presence. That’s how I like BIPA to be. Fruity, with coffee and chocolate and a really shark bitterness not for all palates. Really really nice job.
