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.

onystrom (1321) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, - FEB 16, 2010
Bottle. Black colour with fine head (IPA wtf?). Nice hoppy aroma. Very hoppy with lots of burnt malt. A very nice combo.

Dainis (5) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 21, 2015 does not count
Aroma is quite week, but pleasant. In taste prevails quite straightforward bitterness - nice and tasty, but without any hints of dark malts or other nuances. Long, bitter aftertaste. Thats all. Expected much more.

Mr_Abner (40) - Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown. Aroma is of roasted malts (albeit restrained) and some citrus; centennial hops are prevalent. The taste is a balance of roasted malts, caramel malt, and bright hops; again, I definitely get the centennial. Glad to have tried this beer.

Hopmaestro (249) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2015
Aroma is hoppy indeed, and you get really fresh cranberries mixed with dark grains and som plum. The taste is sweet and malty, but with an aura of summer happiness and running barefoot through berry fields. It all ends in a bitter and dry, hoppy finish.

hallinghansen (2120) - Odense S, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle at home. Black body with a medium light brown head. Dark chocolate, light roasted malt, hops, light coffee notes. Bitter hoppy finish. Yet another delicious beer from Amager.

SlackerMads (1774) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle shared with Shaun Hill. Batch 866 best before 2015-09. Dominated by citrus, pine, bark with the malts in the back adding balance to the strong hopping. Some chocolate and cocoa. Medium body, relatively low sweetness, medium bitter. Long hoppy dry finish. Ok, but a bit agressive and the malts could be more pronounced for my taste.

asheft (2599) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Sweet red fruit and toasty mocha vanilla roasted barley aroma with hazelnut accents. Black under a dense, lasting tan foam. Dry toasty dark chocolate flavour with some woody bitterness and somewhat farmhousy accent that becomes stronger as the beer warms. Pleasant dark chocolate bitterness works well with the farmhousy character. Medium light body, medium carbonation, lingering dry bitter black malt finish.

Lukasmh (255) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours murky brown with one finger nice creamy nutty head. Aroma is grassy pellets, herbs, pine, light roasty malts and dark chocolate. Bit citric. Taste reminds me of sour dough. Bready malts, yeast and citrusy pine. Dry roasty finish, long lasting, medium body.

Furseth (1990) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle: Black colour, big brown head. Aroma is dominated of lots of fruits, citrus, caramelly some vanilla, spicy, some coffee, and dark choclate ! Flavor: Dry hopy, bitter fruity mouth feeling dominates the mouth feeling, some chcoalte and coffee. Thin to medium body! Long Dry fruity finish! Well done!

venom666 (430) - Elche, SPAIN - DEC 22, 2014
Hazy black/dark brown color with rich beige head. Aroma is full of passion fruit, with peach and tones of grapefuit, also pine and some citrus characteristics. Medium-bodied. Taste is very tropical, with passion fruit as well, piny and earthy characteristics and a roasted coffee/malty background. Mind blowing bitter finish. A Black IPA that goes more into the hoppy area, extreme and enjoyable.
