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.

Zakoon (86) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2014
50cl Bottle @ home. Pours black with a big and almost forever lasting tan head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, grass and resin. Flavour is bitter, body is medium, texture is thin. carbonation average. The finish is long and bitter. It’s very hoppy but I miss the aroma and flavour of more roasted malt. I want it burned and hoppy, but that’s just me.

Zekada (266) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Smell of hops, malts and coffee. Pours black with a small brown head. Taste has a lot of hops and grass-like features together with some malts and coffee. Palate is stray and sticky. Overall a decent black IPA, though a bit too bitter.

humlelala (1036) - DENMARK - OCT 11, 2014
(50 cl bottle from Toft Vin; Batch #866; BBD: September 2015) Pours a pitch black with tan and creamy, one-finger head. Decent retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is hoppy with herbal and earthy notes. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a protracted, bitter finish. Flavour is hop forward bitterness with aroma notes and only a little sweetness. Quite nice and I think there’s a trace of James in there - perhaps the CTZ hops.

Countbeer (4728) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Black beer with a medium sized ashy brown head. Aroma is a delicious mix of fresh hops (think loads of fruits and flowers) and some roast. Delicious! Flavours of again load of hops with the typical fruit (citrus, grapefruit, exotic) and flower tones. Good roast, light liquorice tones and good bitters! Pine, resin, spruce... It’s all there. Aftertaste is bitter, hoppy, floral, fruity, roast, some flowers and grassy. Low cabo, close to full bodied and a creamy mouthfeel and texture. Delicious stuff!
