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.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 (Bottle). Very nice and fresh hop aroma with a solid foundation of roasted malt, slightly smoky with hints of licorice. Great taste of roasted malt and licorice with distinct flavors from the hops. In some respects reminiscent of a Porter. Absolutely superb beer!

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2012
In short: A roasted, nourishing and uber-hoppy Black IPA. Good example of the style
How: Bottle 500ml. Exact age unknown, consumed a few weeks after receiving it from an online beer store
The look: Black body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Nose is massively hoppy for a beer ordered from an online store that probably wasn’t all that fresh. Aroma has floral, topical fruits and slightly piney hops nose-to-nose with the roastiness. Taste is very roasted, burnt caramel, black jelly beans, bitter black chocolate. Then comes the hops that are citrusy, floral and wooden with a strong resinous character. Bitterness is of medium intensity and sticks to the back of the mouth. Some tar in the after-taste. Body is very full and filling, the medium carbonation is well levelled. Nothing groundbreaking here, if you like Black IPAs, you’ll love that beer. On a side-note: Black Nitro is less dangerous than regular Nitro because most of the time it doesn’t work.
