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.

Pours dark black, as dark or even darker than some Imperial Stouts I’ve had, with 2 finger rich, frothy, small-bubbled tan head. Aroma is flawless. MASSIVE notes of coffee and bittersweet chocolate (maybe even vanilla?) interweave with hints of citrus, pine, and resin. Flavor is chocolate cake, green piney hops, then coffee, roast, spice, and a hint of grapefruit peel on the finish. Body is full with lively carbonation, creamy, and finishes dry and bitter. The flavor of this divine liquid linger on for minutes between sips. Folks, when I tell you this is everything I could ever want in a beer, I kid you not. This is unreal. Legendary. I aspire to ever be able to brew something like this myself.

This is a damn good beer! Black with a fizzy brown head. Aroma and taste of floral amber incense and citrus hops, roasted grain and chocolate with a coffee finish. One of the best beers I’ve had lately.

Defines the category and the black IPA. My personal point of reference. Aroma and taste bear slight notes of smoke derived from the chocolate malt and the coffee nuts I assume are a part of this magnificent beer. Easy compares to and/or beats the best works of Three Floyds and Mikkeller. No matter the mood, no matter where in the world, no matter the weather or time of the day - I’d get this if it’s on tap. I promise it’ll be love at first sight.

Poured from bottle: Dark brown with a nice creamy mocha brown head. Aroma - Chocolate, piney hops, brown bread, dark fruit underneath, hint of nutmeg Taste - The taste on this beer is awesome. Starts out with sweet dark fruit, brown sugar, caramel, chocolate, to brown bread and roasted malt, to coffee and bitter, piney, citrus hops, to dark burnt malt. Palate - medium body, fizzy carbonation, bready mouthfeel, long, satisfying bitter finish following an initial sweet chocolatey, fruity taste. I poured this beer expecting a typical IBA with a bitter punch to the mouth. Instead I got more complexity and everything I love in a beer. Sweet fruit and chocolate, roasted malt, bitter hops, and a long, bitter finish.

Truly an awsome beer! Black look with a thick long lasting brown head, leaving lacings. Aroma holds overwhelming amounts of piney hops, drinking it fresh seems like a good idea! Under the pine comes notes of mild chocolate, liquirce and some smoked wood. Flavor is fresh and smooth for a beer this dark. Again loads of pine in the moutharoma along with smooth milky chocolate. Medium hop bitter, a little roasted and a great chocolate cane sugery sweetness. Wont be my last, thats for sure!

"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.

Blacker than black beer with a huge and creamy cappucino-brown foam. Pine, lemon, grape, licorice and roasted malt on the nose and in the mouth also tones of coffee and a rather harsh, but well proportioned bitterness from the hops, that works extremely well with the roasted, burned tones. A modern favorite of mine

Beer Here Dark Hops -pullossa on hauska etiketti. Itse olut näyttää mustalta, hieman öljyiseltä. Olussa on runsas, vaalean ruskea vaahto. Tuoksu on havuinen, kahvinen ja suklainen. Myös makua täytyy kuvailla noilla termeillä. Sen lisäksi tämä on katkera, kuiva ja hieman makea. Erittäin miellyttävä olutkokemus.

One of my favorites. Complex, if i turn it in five times in my mouth it chagnes for every turn. Never get bored of this one. Nice nice acidity wich lifts the whole taste experience. - MASTER CLASS!

On tap at Deja Vu. Aromas of liquorice and caramel. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length.
