COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Økologisk India Dark Ale er brygget på bygmalt og flere aromatiske humletyper, som giver en frisk duft af humle og citrus. Engelsk chokolademalt runder øllet blødt af, og den mørke farve kommer fra de ristede malte af hvede og byg. Økologisk India Dark Ale har et flot og cremet skum, og den store mængde new zealandsk humle giver en god, frisk bitterhed, der sættes i skak af maltens sødme. En øl med god fylde og krop.

Karaktertræk: Mørk, bitter og ristet, med skarphed. Farve: Mørk kastanje. Bitterhed: Høj 70 IBU. Sødme: Halvtør med nogen sødme, der holdes i skak af bitterheden. Indbrygningspct: 15,5° plato.

Grovlam (4163) - Copenhagen, - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle. Large thick foamy beige head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Mahogany cloudy color. Aroma of pineapple, fresh grassy, citrus and some oily notes as well. Over the palate came light roasted malt that mix well with the hoppy and light fruity notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Light to moderated sweet and bitter flavor that is very well balanced together. Light dry and hoppy finish that somewhat lingers on. Nice and very drinkable beer.

Defreni (2787) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2015
Flaske: Sortbrun uklar øl med et fint tætsiddende skumhoved. Duften er let brændt og med en del citrushumle. Smagen er forholdsvis behagelig i forhold til at det er en black ipa. Alt i alt en udmærket øl.

DraftDodger (417) - - MAY 19, 2015
Copenhagen 19/5 2015. 50 cl bottle from Irma. Very brown label shall signify you are about to drink a very brown and dark ale. Pours very dark hazy brown with off-white head. Head subsides to thin lacing fairly quickly. Aroma is of dark roasted malts and some perfumed bitter hops. Slightly strange mixture. Medium carbonation. Taste is fairly bitter dominated by distinct notes of coffee. Some bitter slightly perfumed hops going on in the aftertaste. More strange than good.

Holmen1 (3403) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2015
0,5 flaske fra Irma Vesterbrogade 1.nyttårsdag på hytta: mørkebrun med flott cappucinofarget skumkrone. Deilig aroma av ristet brød, nøtter, mørk sjokolade og fruktig humle. Smaken følger opp, dette er et godt øl uansett stilart! De 70 IBU er eksemplarisk balansert av restsødmen. Et røverkøb til kr. 29.
