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.

Bottle. Black colour with fine head (IPA wtf?). Nice hoppy aroma. Very hoppy with lots of burnt malt. A very nice combo.

16.9 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Black with 2.5 fingers of light tan head. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, licorice, subtle floral notes. Tastes of chocolate, floral notes, light pine. Medium body with a dry finish.

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.

Bottle. Teku glass. Pitch black, with huge, densed, light brown head. Medicore lacing. Good head retention. Aroma of dried black fruit, roasted malts, medium grassy, citrus and piney notes. High bitterness, flavour is piney, grapefruit, some roasted malts. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation. Finish is long and bitter.

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear black color ale with a large dark brown foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing notes. Aroma of dry bitter roasted malt notes with some light green resin notes is OK. Taste is also a mix of roasted malt with light dry bitter notes with some light resin notes. Body is lighter then style average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I thought this beer was a bit short on hops flavors and thinner then I would have liked it to be.

kaser (4087) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Graham cracker, biscuit and malty aroma. Maybe a little cinnamon. Mostly black pour from bottle at home. Creamy and foamy offwhite head. Spices, chocolate, malts, and nice hop profile. Silky mouth feel. Very tasty black IPA.

malrubius (2102) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle from Table and Vine. Near black with dense tan head and lace. Leafy citrus roasted nuts and chocolate milk aroma. Medium roasted coffee chocolate nuts and mild plummy fruit sweetness. Very dry finish. Bitter nutty with a hint of tangy citrus, maybe oats? Creamy chocolate milky texture. Absolutely delicious...and almost gone.

mikeyo1 (418) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours dark red to black and a large beige head. Nose has dry roasted notes with hoppy notes pine apple, peach, lemon. Caramel and dark chocolate. Initially a smooth texture with a drier chocolate and grape bitter finish. Flavors of dark chocolate, licorice , grapefruit, pine apple and mango. While balanced it’s a bit too roasted for a black ipa imo.
