COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: previously brewed at Nøgne Ø, Norway.

Danish: Det er en stout humlet som en India Pale Ale med tydelig bitterhed og en tør finish. Øllet holder 8,5% alkohol og små 80 IBU. Den er brygget på Maris Otter Malt, røgmalt, britiske specialmalte og rørsukker. I både smag og aroma bærer den præg af en af mine favorithumler: Zeus (nogen gange kaldet Columbus eller Tomahawk), der er brugt i kedlen sammen med tjekkisk Saaz humle og alene som tørhumle. Den er lækker at drikke nu mens humlen er frisk, men da den er eftergæret på flasken har den bestemt også lagringspotentiale, vil jeg mene.

Very good, a little different than usual. Tastes like a hoppy porter. Starts with heavy, chocolate malts and then a good dose of hops kick in for a lightly bitter finish. Full bodied. Porter like aroma.

msante79 (2222) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle from Beertopia in Omaha. Pours Dark dark brown with massive dark tan head. Nose is loaded with chocolate and roasted malts with good amount of hops and citrus. Flavor is heavy wht roasted malts and chocolate but has big citrus and hops flavors. This is not a black IPA. It is more of a heavily hopper porter or stout. Pretty good stuff regardless of style.

illidurit (2270) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle courtesy Guy411. Pours nearly black with chocolate brown corners and a finely carbonated dark tan head. Aroma is like those Ghirardelli chocolate squares that have orange cream inside. Candied citrus and milk chocolate. Flavor is very rich chewy chocolatey malts with a light smokiness and a hop character that is more piney and herbal than fruity. Big solid bitterness without any astringency. Smooth slick mouthfeel.

Dark Hops Sampled on 1/2/2010. This American Strong Ale pours a eclipse black color from a 50cl bottle. Large sized tan foamy head with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and hops. A medium bodied ASA. Malts are chocolate and roasty, with a weird touch of ice tea. Hops are floral and citrusy. Nice balance. A decent amount of bitter. More in the Black IPA category. Nice slightly dry finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and slightly dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - JAN 25, 2010
0.5 L Bottle. Pours black with a filmy off-white head. Amazing aroma of bittersweet chocolate, licorice and hops. Lots and lots of hops, both earthy and citrus. Initial flavor is dominated by deeply roasted malt and licorice. Finishes with a lingering bitterness. Mouth feel more reminiscent of a porter than a stout.

A Mes rate: bottle at the ever brilliant Chris O’s Pre GBBF Extravaganza.
Good black body with a tan head. Big coffee, huge dryness, plenty of bitterness and some gorgeous hops. Slight ethanol and prickly alcohol. Great length. Good hops, good malt, excellent beer. Fantastic label too!

dogfish120love (1074) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Pours a dark brown almost black with a thick frothy medium/dark brown head. The aroma given off is a combo of sweet and sour. the beer smells like it was wet hopped. Notes of coffee and caramel are present with a hop finish. The palate is slightly creamy. The initial flavor is that of a imperial stout/ strong porter, but the finish is rather well hopped.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2010
Bottle @ pre-GBBF shindig, August 2009. It is certainly dark and it most definitely has plenty of hops. Good fresh, perfumed, resinous hops at that. So I guess the name says most of what you need to know. Quite thick and chewy. Burnt malt and bitter coffee on the palate. Flavours are maybe a little harsh and could be a little better integrated. Otherwise excellent.

JPDIPSO (5153) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Very, nearly black color. Tall, lasting dark tan head. Scents of Herbal and citric hops, dark malts, citrus, juniper, molasses, tobacco all waft about. Quite intriguing, but not quite totally inviting. Creamy feel. Licorice start in the flavors set me back a bit (me being a known licorice disliker in my brews). But I escape with minimal damage. Starfruit, and some charred pineapple flavors work in. Seem a bit too charred for my tastes. Not an abundance of flavors for me. The charred licorice and some herbal hops are not enough to sway me.
