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.

16oz bottle thanks to hopscotch for sharing this rarity. Nose is roast and big piney hops. Tons of pine and resin in this one. This one is tough to handle for me. Very bitter with light bitter roast from the debittered black malt and the intense bitterness from the hops. I’d like a little more sweetness in this but its a solid black IPA.

hopscotch (9041) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Bottle… Murky, dark brown ale with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The aroma is of dark chocolate and a bevy of piney, citrusy hops. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is of black patent and chocolate malts blended with big, flavorful hops. Bitter, but not overdone. Finishes medium bitter and dry. Numbs the tongue a bit like Novocain. Bottle courtesy of plovmand!

egajdzis (5290) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Nearly opaque black/brown color with a small, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate, floral hops, pine, and some citrus. Taste of roasty malts, chocolate, some smoke, and bitter hops. But really this has more stout qualities than IPA qualities.

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.
