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.

( .5L bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours black with tan head and great lacing. Nose of chocolate, well integrated hops, brown sugar. Taste of semi-sweet chocolate, cocoa, with a creamy/thick body.

Impressive tan head that recedes in sugarloaf like dome. Leaves extensive lace on the glass. Near black color where no light shines through. Dark, dark chocolate aroma. No powerful hop overwhelming the smell although I expected it: "hoppy black ale". A complex combination of a dry porter start, a hoppy-ish middle, and a bitter burnt unmalted finish. The body is rich without being thick.

Bottle. Pours thick and black with a huge, foamy dark tan head. Aroma of oak, cedar, wood, hop spices, roasted malt. Flavor of charred/roasted malt, more oak, and some light citrus/bitter hops in the finish. More of a hoppy stout to me but quite tasty! 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

Jet black with a big brown and creamy head with very good retention. Nice lacings. A fine looking brew. The smell has pleasant fresh hop aromas up front. Floral notes, hop resins, some citric notes. Faint spices. The hops blend nicely with a roasted malty backbone with nice coffee and chocolate aromas. A very good and fascinating smell. The hops are up front in the mouth as well, and they are quite aggressive. Very fresh hop flavors, floral notes, resins and perhaps some grapefruit. However, the hops are not as powerful as in the smell, nor as complex. Nice foundation of roasted malts, big coffee flavors, chocolate. Perhaps some spices, faint vanilla and licorice. The finish is rather bitter with pleasant flavors of roasted malts, pine-needles, hop resins and wood. All in all, a very nice taste with a beautiful mix of fresh hops and the "usual" stout flavors of coffee and chocolate. M: Medium body going towards full. Quite alot of carbonation actually that slightly bothers me. But other than that, this is a really good beer. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Pours as dark and thick as any imperial stout I have seen, dark brown head. Aroma is certainly not imperial stout, more like a double IPA, with a crisp, piney aroma with just a hint of coffee. Flavor is quite nice, never had anything quite like it. More juniper like hops, with a bit of coffee and baking chocolate.

(bottle) black with generous tan head, nice lace. Aroma of roast malt, moist earth (I’ve got a cold, perhaps that’s why I’m missing the hops). Flavor is roast malt, coffee, dark chocolate, with a bitter hops finish

Bottle @ Paul’s gathering. Well very enjoyable black ipa here, hops and dark mals can coexist even thrive. Up there with my favorite "normal" ipas, and has a mouthfeel than the norm.

bhensonb (12454) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Bottle. Pours like Guinness. Dark black with a six-finger head that "sheets" down into fluid. Sort of an earthy hop aroma. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Seems to be a lot of dark toast malt and some coffee. Not all that bitter. Definitely a strong hop aroma, though. Pretty different. Heading for stout, but not there. Good change of pace.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2010
.5 liter bottle. Pours a deep dark clear brown near black with a fluffy tacky head- some lace. Aroma is some dank weed like hops but skews towards the minty green hops some citrus light grapefruit- mixes ok with a light chocolate nuttiness- low to no roast. Flavor is chocolate and hops, clean, toasty sweet malts, but not thick and doesn’t get in the way of the green hops- citrus, pine mint and earthy cocoa fresh tobacco leaf casing to a cigar- nice. Smooth and lingering bitter finish.

Heard this was pretty good, so I was excited to see it at Discount Liquor in Milwaukee. I am suspicious, though, as it is apparently contract brewed at Nogne O. Roasty, chocolate aroma with leafy hops. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, mint, and some light bitterness. Medium roastiness. Full on the palate with a creamy texture. Reminded me of smoking a cigar and eating mint chocolate ice cream. Nice carbonation for the style, and finishes roasty. Pretty solid beer here.
