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.

Bottle. Black colour with fine head (IPA wtf?). Nice hoppy aroma. Very hoppy with lots of burnt malt. A very nice combo.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Undoubtfully this looks like a tempting impreial stout. The pour is dark brown with a frothy cappochino head. There is a lot of hops in the aroma but also hints of vanilla - but the floral and grassy hoppy notes is up front. The taste is (in spite of the words above" a little burned with hoppy notes back up with a cool hoppy bitterness and some alcohol. It comes with a full bodied palate with a rather oily or creamy attitude. It very nice and I think of it as a thick Ipa. Thumps up to Shaun Hill and to Amager to let this guy swing the giant spoon in your barrels. Looking forward to taste some of that Hill Farmstead.

gyllenbock (4088) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle. Dark, almost black color. Large brownish foam. Interesting hoppy aroma with roasted malt, chocolate, grape and some floral and pine. Flavour was very bitter, but not only bitter. Interesting mix of hops, grape, coffee, roasted malt and caramel. Medium body with a long bitter finish.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2010
It’s black with a red hue and a huge, creamy, light brown and lasting head. The aroma is hoppy with notes of spruce, resin, light petrol (in the OK resin-way) and citrus. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of the resin from a Grand fir, roasted malt, grapefruit, exotic fruits and the finish has a nice bitterness with notes of grapefruit and resin.

Bottle 50 cl. huge building brown bubbly head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Dark mahogany color. Aroma of grape, citrus, floral, pine like, mild malty feel. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and dry texture. Heavy bitter flavor with good counter sweetness. Lingering dry bitter finish.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle at 1st Borefts Beer Festival BIG thanks to the bloke who loves phones..
Mahogany black with an excellent off white head and lace. Amazing bright floral hoppage and petrol (in a good way, honestly) on top of some truly stunning black malt. The dark coffee character blends seamlessly with the fresh grassy hops. It’s probably the best integration between dark and golden I have experienced so far. Beautiful earthy finish with great length and a developing bitterness. Fantastic.
