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.

Large choco brown head, good retention and decent lace. Black in color. Nose is got C hops, roast and chocolate. Body is med/full, oily on the palate. Nicely balanced chocolate citrus flavors, licorice, faint tobacco and a bit phenolic. Finish is dry and hoppy. A garoovy brew! Bottle procured @statelineliquors.

yep. dark and hoppy. bottle. a mix of polar opposites.... 2ipa and imp stout. really too much going on to single any one great quality from this beast. my palate can’t take this kind of punishment.

Taverner (1081) - San Ramon, California, USA - NOV 8, 2009
500 ml from Perry’s @ Livermore. Aroma is thick chocolate malt. Pours a dark as night black with brown head that sticks around. Flavor is dark and roasty like a stout. Some hops, but mostly it tastes like a stout. Decent, but not as much of a Black IPA as I was expecting.

ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2009
500mL bottle from DK. Pours black with tan frothy head. Nose has some smoke and piney hops. Taste has some roasted malts, more smoke and lmore grassy hops. A strange beer, but tasty.

allfreej (552) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Bottled. Poured black with a lively, dense, foamy brown head. Nose was roasty, with a hint of floral hops and spices. Falvor was coffee, smoke, and alcohol. A huge hop finish rounded things out, with a nice, bitter hop resin ending. Thick, bold, and immensely satisfying.

Poured thick black with a caramel head, nose surprisingly was not hops, but of smoky and coffee malt. Tasted as such, with a very present hop bitterness from the hops. Overall a good strong porter like ale, not a hoppy/black IPA

Excellent pour with a black body and a massive, creamy, dense, dark tan head which settles in time to a creamy, frothy layer and leaves plenty of frothy lace rings; must be the Grimstad water from Nogne that produces these perfect heads. Nose is very pleasant with lots of pine, orange zest, light grapefruit, plenty of dark chocolate, burnt toast, roasted walnuts, toasted molasses, and some restrained coffee roast. Flavor is nice but a bit of a letdown with lots of bakers’ chocolate, burnt toast, pine needles, light earthy rustic, cocoa, and light orange zest. Palate is very silky smooth, nearly lively, medium to full, but fairly short flavor progression. Finish is fairly short but nice with faint orange zest, rustic and pine, bakers’ chocolate, and light burnt toast. At first, I thought this would be a black IPA hybrid, but actually the moderate bitterness portrays more of an Imperial Porter with plenty of finishing hops. I wish there were just a bit more sweetness in the flavor and a longer flavor progression. I really did like this one and it did not contain any unlikable notes like their Pumpernickel Porter. The more I try, the more I enjoy it, despite the fact that I was not a huge fan of the flavor. Nose and appearance were exceptional.

Ratman197 (9454) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2009
500 ml bottle poured a clear dark brown nearly black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, pine, orange zest, cocoa and earthiness. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth with a lightly dry finish. Flavors of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, orange zest, earthiness and light pine with a smooth lingering bitter chocolatey orange finish.

Bottle from EZ. Pours out black with a moderate tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, citrus hops and some roasted malts. Chocolate is right up front with some roasted malts, burnt wood, slight smoke and some citrus hops in there too, put that all together with a rather smooth mouthfeel and this is a pretty solid beer. The only issue I had was that I was searching for a little more upfront hop flavor.
