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.

500 ml bottle thanks to DrSilverworm. Pitch black pour with a medium foamy head that fades slowly and leaves some nice lacing. Aromas are pineapple, pine, burnt toast, cocoa, coffee, and toasted nuts. Taste has almost no sweetness with a fairly strong bitterness, especially in the finish. Dark bread, pineapple and pine hops, coffee, and slightly burnt wood. Medium to full body with a little chalkiness in the mouthfeel. Really nice black IPA. Intense and fairly complex.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of roast, grass, pine, slight earthy notes, hints of coffee and cocoa in there as well. Taste is a mix of roast, coffee, chocolate, some orange peel, nice earthy notes into some pine, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Pretty well made, no ashy notes or off flavors.

Bottle. Pours opaque black with a large creamy brown head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, roasty malts, pine, a touch of dank. Flavor is the same, light sweet and light bitter. Medium body, creamy. Nice balance for a black IPA.
