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.

The Red Nitro wasn’t that good so i didn’t have high hopes for this one. It actually was delicious. Opague black colour. Smells very hoppy but roasty malty at the same time. This beer combines the best of IPAs and Stouts and i love it.

Koelschtrinker (10831) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Hopfiger Antrunk, der aber durchaus durch eine trockene Malzigkeit gestört wird. Das Bier bleibt aber vom hopfen dominiert, auch wenn sich zeitweilig kaffeeartige Röstnoten darin breitmachen. Der amerikanische Hopfen ist in seiner typischen und etwas trockenen-penetranten Form erkennbar, auch wirkt er sehr eichtig. Im Abgang sehr Hopfing, fast drückend. Daneben bitter, stark, dem Hopfen aber unterlegen. 12/11/7/11/-/11

flemmingwillum (1010) - Nysted, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2011
Rating #541, bottle from Vinspecialisten Islands Brygge

A dark brown beer with a nice beige head. Magnificent aroma of chocolate, coffee, pine, citrus, oranges, tobacco, and raspberries - couldn’t be better. Flavors are chocolate, coffee, bitterness, citrus / lime and raspberries - it contains it all, and gives you the best from both the light and dark sides of the world of beer. BItterness might seem a bit overwhelming compared to the other elements in the flavor, though. Only a light sweetness. The finish is rather bitter and has a small touch of alcohol burn. Medium thick palate, that very well could have been creamier. A very fine brew that I’m happy to have got a specimen of before it’s too late.

JanLaursen (3159) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 27, 2011
Batch 283 - The color is somewhere between the very dark brown and black. The head is light brown and pretty frothy. The nose is dominated by strong hop aromas of pine and resin. Pine and resin is echoed in the taste with something that almost reminds me of black tea (slightly sweetened English breakfast tea) and it all ends in a long bitter but dry and harmonious finale. Very refreshing. One more, please!

Bov (9602) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2011
from erzbierschof.ch - pours a very dark beer with a persistent dark beige foam; correct lacing; aroma of chocolate and vanilla; full-bodied and with some sweetness, a solid bitterness and a long chocolatey aftertaste with notes of coffee, hops and licorice

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2011
(Bottle) Very dark brown colour, almost black with ruby hints through light. Lasting beige head, leaving traces of lacing. Roasted, malty nose with coffee, dark chocolate, pine needles and fresh resinous hops. Roasted, malty taste with notes of black coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, grapefruit and pine needles. Generous resiny bitterness in well roasted finish. More than medium body, with just a touch of sweetness. Very tasty and very nice, and all in lovely balance. Impressive beer!
