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 @ 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.

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.

Pours beautiful dark brown with a two finger dark tan head. Full nose of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and a bit of nuttiness. Same in the flavor with a decent dose of bitterness in the finish. Medium full mouthfeel.

The maltiest black ipa I’ve tried, but awesome nonetheless. Slight citrus in the aroma combines with charred malts, chocolate, and molasses notes. Flavor is slightly sweet, slightly bitter with a nice hop finish. Dark fruit flavors make themselves present, underscored by bitter citrus and slight pine. Really good brew.

"Hops were hurt in the making of this beer" I just recently heard about a beer thats a combination of my two favorite styles of beer. Imperial stout, and IPA. And i knew i had to try it. Dark Hops by Beer Here is that beer. Poured into a tulip glass. Black with no light showing at all. One finger of a roasted hazelnut color head with tremendous lacing that hugs the glass for dear life. Smell is very hoppy. Mostly citrus hops. Chocolate and roasted malts with some caramel and coffee also. Well can literally taste this beer change flavors in your mouth. First you get hit with the citrus hop bite and slowly it warms as you swallow and turns to a roasted chocolate flavor and finishes tasting big time of coffee. Mouthfeel is rich and medium to full bodied. Finishes super creamy with a tremendous after taste. This is a hell of a beer! Best of both worlds. Hops, coffee, chocolate, alcohol. What more could you want. This beer is really a good time. I’m glad i found this. I recommend you going out and getting one if you can find it.

Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa, roasty coffee, maybe a bit of cedar. Flavor rich with semi-sweet chocolate and lots of roasted malt. Toffee and nougat notes emerge more and more. Good dose of bitterness, but this felt a lot more like a straight stout to me, not a black ipa/asa sort of deal. Just loads of rich, vinous malt. Very tasty.

( .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]

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2010
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)
