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.

Équilibre plus que parfait entre la torréfaction et l’houblonnage. On navigue entre la rondeur/amertume du café et le houblonnage bien vert. Belle longueur. Apparente complexité alors qu’on a "juste" une complémentarité magnifiquement dosée.

tomekk1978 (1284) - Z±bki, POLAND - NOV 15, 2015
Aromat: na pierwszym planie zioła i iglaki pochodzące z chmielu, nieco później cytrusy. Następnie ciemne słody z czekoladą, karmelem (zbyt dużym), kawą zbożową czy kakao. Paloność ograniczona. Lekkie nuty utlenienia.

Wygląd: barwa czarna, nie przejrzysta nawet pod światło. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita i trwała. Ślicznie oblepia szkło. Ideał.

Smak: spora słodycz, alkohol, ciemne słody (j.w. z tym, że tutaj już zdecydowana paloność, wręcz popiół), skontrowane chmielem. Goryczka ziołowa, leśna, wzmacniana przez paloność i alkohol. Niestety jest niezbyt przyjemna, bowiem szczypiąca i zalegająca. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie i palona końcówka wraz z goryczką oraz nutą alkoholową, ogrzewająca przełyk. Po przychylnych ocenach na rb spodziewałem się zdecydowanie więcej. Mocno przeciętne, ciekawsze zdarzyło mi się popełnić w domu.

mansquito (5109) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2015
The Sampler, Brooklyn nitro: pours black with fat nitro tan head. Aroma is floral, spicy, and maybe a tad fruity with roasted malts and the like. Taste is nicely bitter. Chocolate and roast comes in better through the taste. Nice gooey aftertaste. Gets a bit more bitter with the ensuing sips. Nice.

Bulk_Carrier (3552) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - OCT 27, 2015
This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a black color with a tan one finger foamy head that dissipated within less than about forty seconds. Lacing was mostly messy. The smell started off with roasty coffee to sweet cocoa beans. Light pine and citrusy hops make an effort to try and blend but remain in the background. Black licorice ends up coming for the balance. The taste was mainly sweet with a dried cocoa malty-like substance. Sticky sweet licorice notes slide into the aftertaste and runs into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about medium bodied with a decent sessionable to sipping quality to it. Carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Black licorice creates a big smooth creamy sort of feel to this beer. Overall, as a black ale/CDA, I don’t see it. Roasty malt sweetness is too overpowering and there’s not enough bitter hops to bring in the normal balance of the style. However, the creativity of a collaboration of what I did get from this beer is really good as I know I would have this again for me. Just don’t look at this one as a normal black ale and you’ll be fine.

PapaVillum (841) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2016 Sort lækker, ufiltreret og rolig Black IPA med pæn stor moccafarvet skumtop, 2-3 cm tykkelse. Ret frugtrig indledning i aromaspektret. Lettere sød-/syrlig start. Jordbær og mere dybdeliggende noter af ristet malt. Senere fremstår den bitre ristede malt og humlenuancerne mere tydelige. Derforuden noget kælderaroma. Smagen er både bitter og sødlig, også her med jordbærsmag samt ristet maltnoter. Sætter sig med oxideringen og bliver mere bitter og mindre sød. Overordnet: solid bitter, let sødme. Stor krop og middel karboneret. God frisk mundfølelse og glat til cremet konsistens. Eftersmagen er mere bitter end sødlig og ligger godt bittert i lang tid. En sort IPA, som også giver mening (ja, jeg har smagt nogle uden selvsamme). Shaun Hill er delvis "forfatter" til dette bryg og uden at kende hans øl nærmere, kender jeg hans rygte. Lad mig slutte med et statement på hans hjemlands sprog: Damned good beer! 50 cl, flaske, 7,5 % ABV, batch #1129, BB: 09/2016, købt og leveret af boxbeers.com. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AirForceHops (5975) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 25, 2015
500 ml bottle purchased at Hunger Mountain Co-Op. Appearance is a pitch black ink with lasting carbonation. The aroma of dark chocolate, caramel and earthy hops underneath.

The thing I enjoyed most was the full body and the smooth velvet carbonation level over my palate; it did have the feel of sampling from a Nitro Tap rather than a bottle. I also was expecting more of a stout when in fact this is a Black IPA/ CDA. No matter because I enjoy bitterness in my stouts and enjoy both styles. This brew had a substantial amount of earthy pine bitterness that lingered after the sip. A nice balance with the dark roasted malts. Tasty.

dandeman (799) - 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.
