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.

Black color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy and roasted malt and some coffee notes. Flavor is floral hops, citrus and some roast.

(Bottle). Very nice and fresh hop aroma with a solid foundation of roasted malt, slightly smoky with hints of licorice. Great taste of roasted malt and licorice with distinct flavors from the hops. In some respects reminiscent of a Porter. Absolutely superb beer!

Nice to see this category can be done by non Americans. This one is great. Good malt. Good hoppiness. Just overall it’s good and highly recommended.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2009
Bottle, bought @ BarleyWine, Cph.
Pours almost completely black with a great, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma is lovely hoppy, citrus, pine, grapefruit. Lightly roasted malts behind it. Medium carbonation, impressive dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is very hoppy, lightly roasted, some slight coffee and chocolate notes. Grapefruit, citrus and pine dominate the lovely bitter hops. Aftertaste is lovely dry, with some clear roasted notes. Really lovely.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2010
Pitch black with a medium beige looking head. Aroma was packed with hops, grapefruits, lemons, pine and just hints of burned malt. Flavor was bone dry and again packed with hops, pine, grapefruit, lemon, hard and just enough roasted malt to make it a black IPA and not an Imperial Stout. What a cracker.

gnoff (7780) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2010
Draught at Bishops Arms Jänrtorget, Göteborg, on October 17, 2010. During Porterveckan 2010
Black color, fluffy tan head. Very hoppy, fruity, red berries, some citrus scent. Hoppy, bitter, dry, roasted, fresh taste. Long, bitter, lingering aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Almost too dry for me and too bitter, but it works, very nice!

DutchDrebus (3967) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
The Red Nitro wasn’t that good so i didn’t have high hopes for this one. It actually was delicious. Opague black colour. Smells very hoppy but roasty malty at the same time. This beer combines the best of IPAs and Stouts and i love it.

sunevdj (3152) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2009
Bottle at home. Pours a clearish brown with a beige head. Smells hoppy. Bitter with strong hoppy aromas. Hints of Belgian yeast fruit esters... this (unfortunately) disappears as the beer ages in the glass. Mellow aromas of roasted malts. Tiny hints of plant sap. Medium to full bodied. Medium carbonation. Long bitter finish with more hops aromas and a tiny hint of residual sugars.

Dedollewaitor (13803) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2009
50cl Bottle @ VinensVerden, Odense. Pours nearly black with a stable creamy head and lacings. Nose is very hoppy. Pine, citrus and grapefruit. Soo inviting makes me wanna chew on the glass. A bit of roast and caramel but again lots of fresh hops dominates. Grape and pine. Smooth and full bodied. Dry and lasting bitter hoppy and vaguely roasted end. Very nice.
