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!

mathieuc (1897) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
500ml bottle from Parker Pie. Pours a really dark brown, might as well say black, with a small cream-colored head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of green hops, roasted malt and light licorice. Taste is lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Flavors of pine, roasted malt (but no ash) and that’s about it. No harshness whatsoever. Body is on the light side and carbonation moderately high. Overall it was really nice and enjoyable, I’d buy that again!

3fourths (8480) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2015
Bottle-conditioned 500ml. Lightly hazed deep brown with a tall tan head of some retention. American hop impression is grass and resin, grapefruit and lychee. Esters are grape candy / purple drank. Malt is quiet chocolate and char and burnt biscuit with an odd note of sharp tire rubber. Velvety soft medium body, lightly sweet approach drying across the middle and back. It’s pleasantly savory but bitterness overpowers richness, and the drying, salty, bitter finish seems thin. Easy enough to mindlessly drink if you like rudely bitter beer, but I think showing the malt with more clarity would make for a better beer.

zvsn (898) - ISRAEL - APR 23, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks kerenmk. Pours brown with a huge beige head. Smell of piney hops and roasted malt. Sweet malty flavors with notes of fruits, roast, caramel and soy, a bit salty, medium bitterness. Medium-bodied, dry aftertaste.

TimE (3891) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 21, 2015
Muddy brown color with tanned head. Big massive hoppy nose with lots of grapefruit and cotton candy jumping out. Big caramel, chocolate malt and toffee character give this beer a big malty balance. First sip is all hops though with tons of candied apples and grapefruit character. Very well made with both hop and malt characters well defined.

kerenmk (3050) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 14, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks Papsø. Dark brown, opaque, with a frothy off white head. Hoppy lemon and pine aroma, lemongrass and sage. Very mild bitterness, fruity with some dates in the mouth. Medium-to-full body, bitter finish.

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - APR 12, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Black with a beige head. Aroma of piney and "green" hops, slightly stale and soapy, with some roast. Roasty flavor with faint sweetness, piney and "green" hops, and nice bitterness. Medium-bodied. Decent.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black (non-opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate, dark roast coffee), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot, resin). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic, moderately astringent. Fairly decent nose and appearance gets things off on the right foot...good balance of roasty malt and varied hoppy notes...not a lot of depth, but pleasant. Sadly, though, it’s rather caustic in the mouth...quite sour and astringent, and overly bitter as well. So it’s not much fun to drink. Overall just ok.

drpimento (2400) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Great looking beer, with super fresh hop aroma, and the hard to achieve clean finish in a black ipa. On the other hand, not all that much malt character. Excellent body with a little alcohol warmth. Very easy drinking.

Bamsen78 (3955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy black with airy tan head. Clear aroma of hops and citrus, with notes of malt and fruit. Bitter, intense, hoppy flavour with notes of citrus, complemented by sweetish touches of yeast and malt. Hints of liquorice. Bitter aftertaste with citric hints. Good stuff.
