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.

dandeman (778) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2015
Olfactif: Présence d’agrumes avec du pamplemousse. Notes de torréfaction: noisettes, viande fumée. Soupçon de résine. Bon équilibre entre accents de houblons et de malt. Noire à la mousse épaisse, rocailleuse et très persistante. En bouche, une entrée résineuse sur des malts torréfiés à point introduit une longue finale aux notes de sapin Baumier intenses. Les sucres sont à point et contrebalancent efficacement l’amertume résineuse de la finale. La torréfaction est très efficace. Les notes de cendre, de cacao et de noisettes se juxtaposent à la perfection aux accents de résine et de pamplemousse. Quel équilibre des saveurs. Un parfait exemple du style. Une bière de référence.

KW92 (1044) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 18, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemnobrunatna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, wysoka, trwała. Pięknie krążkuje.
AROMAT: Dość intensywny. Jest tu wszystko to co powinno być w dobrym BIPA: żywica, cytrusy, owoce tropikalne, zboża oraz nuty czekoladowe, karmelowe i ziołowe.
SMAK: Żywiczno-cytrusowe. Posmak subtelnie kawowy. Goryczka cytrusowa, wysoka, zalegająca. Alkochol niewyczuwalny.
OGÓLNIE: Bardzo dobre Black India Pale Ale. Jednak do klasy światowej brakuje mi tu lepszego balansu smaku (zbyt agresywna goryczka bez wyraźnej kontry słodowej.

Black, medium beige head. Roasty US hop aroma. Intensely bitter, both hoppy and roasty, with an undercurrent of malty sweetness. Finishes quite bitter. Good, maybe not my cuppa.

madelfonatree (317) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Look - A shade lighter than black body. Lacing. Tan, thin bubbled head. Unfiltered and sediment left in bottle. 4.25 Smell - Grass. Chocolate. Grapefruit. Burnt. Taste - More bitter than other black IPAs (compared to Uranus especially). Chocolate is lighter than chocolate. Light citrus. If you have made a stout, it tastes like the sediment after the first transfer. Feel - Smooth and medium bodied. A little of a milk stout feel. Overall - I found this in Dayton as it was not in Columbus. I was a little disappointed but the score shows it is a solid beer. Bottle labeling hints at a barrel aged beer and it is not. Black IPA is more IPA (on the straight bitter side, I am talking Rebel IPA here) than a hoppy stout.
