COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: På Amager Bryghus har vi altid med stor fornøjelse nydt at åbne dørene for gæstebryggere fra den ganske verden. Black Nitro er således et samarbejde med den amerikanske græsrodsølhippie Shaun E. Hill, som har været med til bringe Nørrebro Bryghus frem i eliten af innovative danske bryghuse, og nu er på vej med sit eget projekt Hill Farmstead Brewery tilbage i hjemstaten Vermont. Til Black Nitro valgte Shaun at grave en gammel opskrift frem fra hans helt unge år som brygger. Mørke IPA’er er en trend fra USA, som med denne øl nu også har ramt Danmark. Farven er mørkebrun på vej mod det sorte, men ved anvendelse af en særlig teknik har vi undgået de brændte toner, som normalt følger med de mørke malte. Aromaen er kan vel nærmest beskrives som bredspektret humle gennem anvendelsen af en vifte af noble amerikanske sorter. Så er du til mørke og fyldige øl og samtidig nyder de fantastiske duftindtryk fra god amerikansk aromahumle, så er vi ikke i tvivl om, at du hermed har fundet en ny yndlingsøl. En varm tak til Shaun og et stort held og lykke med hans eget bryggeri. Ingredienser: Maris Otter bygmalt, lys karamelmalt, sortmalt, havre, hvede, humle, vand og amerikansk overgær.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 (Bottle). Very nice and fresh hop aroma with a solid foundation of roasted malt, slightly smoky with hints of licorice. Great taste of roasted malt and licorice with distinct flavors from the hops. In some respects reminiscent of a Porter. Absolutely superb beer!

Dark brown Nearly black pour with brown head. Herbal piney hop aroma with hints of cocoa. Up front flavor is dark bitter cocoa. Spicy piney hop character. The two flavors seem to live independently in the beer. Whatever I think about is what I am tasting.

Flavor is practicalky the same...gop biterness is very high and lingers long in aftertaste. Body is medium to high, texture is soft, carbonation medium.

BrettGT (183) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2016
Aroma of grapefruit, orange, herbs, roasted malt. Pours almost black with a beige and creamy head. Taste is medium bitter and medium to lightly sweet. The hops work well with the roasty malt backbone. Grapefruity and orangy taste. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation and bitter finish of hops and a bit of roast. Nice black IPA.

OminouSC2 (450) - SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2016
One of my favorite black IPAs. The mix between the hops and the roasted malt flavors is really nice. It’s not perfectly balanced, but what did you expect from the name "Black Nitro" anyway? Body is a bit thin. Overall a really solid beer.

Pression à Lausanne Beer Celebration - De couleur noir avec une bonne mousse beige crémeuse - Au nez des arômes herbacé, café, malt rôti, agrumes, pamplemoussen orange, citron, et beaucoup de resine - En bouche une explosion de houblon et une bonne grosse amertume laisse apparaître un côté très résineux et agrumeux, le malt rôti garde bien sa place et laisse quelques arômes de reglisse et de sauce soja. Impressionnant - Corp moyen, amertume fort, carbonation correcte, AMERE, final résineus et café - Une black IPA tres impressionnante, vraiment incroyable

mcberko (14401) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2016
On tap at Foresters Hall, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out a mix of roasted malt and light piney hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with light roasted malt and harsh piney hops. Rather astringent. Pretty harsh but it’s okay. Probably a function of the beer traveling such a far distance but this isn’t great as is.

onceblind (7314) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2016
Black pour--a good start. Thin foamy ivory head. Lovely nose with some black malty depth and a touch of molasses and lots of roast. Slightly earthy bitter on the aroma as well. Smooth and balanced flavor full of black malt roast, lovely earthy and leafy hop presence, dark cacao, a semisweet malty body, and a slightly earthy finish. Pleasant, but nothing out of this world.
