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.

Bottle into Snifter, Honolulu, Liquor Collection. Pours black with great head with good retention, big and rocky, a light brown color. Opaque black color that is clear. A round medium sweet taste with a fizzy mouth feel on the tip of the tongue. The tingling sensation seems to stay for awhile. I was expecting more.

Stefano (1899) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2010
Black color with a brown head. Aroma is maximum hop, roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is also hop and roasted malts and chocolate notes. Sweet and long aftertaste. Enjoy.

MrBunn (2572) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Bottle. Pours a thick and very dark brown with a dense medium-sized head. Aromas are interesting and different than expected. A pretty chocolate malt base with a mint and tobacco smoke oddness about it. Flavor is far less compelling than I was expecting. It’s not bad, but it’s kind of odd. Fairly smokey/peaty with lots of chocolate and mint/pine hops thrown in. It doesn’t balance together that great, however.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 29, 2009
Bottle at ChrisO’s pre-GBBF tasting, 1st Aug 09. Pitch black with a thick tan head. Loads of light hops but also tar, Vosene and other subtle medicinal notes. Rich and full with nice roasted notes coming through as you savour it. Good stuff.

Hansen (7592) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2009
Very bitter ale, or stout. Almost black, clear, light brown head, mostly lasting. Aroma is grain, burnt, mild coffee, heavy hopped, licorice, faint medicine. Moderate sweet flavor, heavy bitter. Dry texture. Lively carbonation.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 27, 2009
Filthy brew. Emmmmmmmm pure effing dommy. Awesome hop stout aroma, but the flavor was just a hopped chocolate with no coffee. Kind of like a really good bitter dark chocolate in a beer, but instead of lots of chocolate it had more floral/pine hops. Awesome beverage.

blipp (6957) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours near black with a tan head. Roasted malty aroma with fruity citric hops. Strong roasted malt flavor with bitter citric hops and a lasting roasty and bitter finish. Quite good.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2009 My 1500th rating! Bottle. Pours a dark creamy shinny near black with a tall airy foamy lighter mocha colored frothy head, very similar two the Morke and also very Nogne. Aroma of bright sweet citrus and chocolate cookies, lots of juicy hoppy citrus, pineapples, sharp resinous pine, some plastic and alcohol. Woa, flavor is tar, lots of alcohol, plastic, dark chocolate cookies, some dark syrupy burnt molasses, the sweet citrus is actually pretty nice once you get used to the initial bitterness/charred flavor, finishing very ashy and quite quick. Medium bodied with a fuller mouth-feel, creamy, sharp fizzy larger spread-out carbonation, quite drinkable. Definitely has more flavor than the Morke, lots of similarities though in the overall feel.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Bottle. A crazy mix of really roasty coffee, citrusy/pineapple hops, and a little malt sweetness. Bitter hop, coffee flavor. Really weird, and the combination doesn’t work at all. Reminds me of Allagash’s Burnham Road as it exhibits a pairing of flavors that just shouldn’t be mixed at all -- in this case, coffee and citrus, in that case sweet smoke and Belgian yeast.
