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. 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.

HonkeyBra (3826) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2010
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.

solsticebrew (61) - USA - JAN 1, 2010
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 (1908) - 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 (2595) - 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 (7799) - 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.

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.
