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 (4157) - 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.

PapaVillum (494) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2014
0,5 l, flaske, 6,2 % ABV, købt i Irma på Valby Langgade, 15. oktober 2014. Sort og ufiltreret økologisk øl i katagorien sort IPA eller bIPA, som nogle foretrækker det nævnt. Moccafarvet skumtop, som svinder ind til kant og overflade. Aromaen er syrlig og kind-of gæret, og "bagerst" i billedet befinder den brændte/ristede malt sig. Smagen er rund og fyldig og ikke over-bitter, som man kunne forestille sig. God balance mellem en let skjult sødme og en god humlebitterhed. Men humlen er for underspillet IMO. Konsistensen er cremet, og øllet føles perfekt karboneret til øltypen. Lige under et medium niveau. Krydderierne udebliver i denne Dunkel, men vi kommer hjem i balance og mer-smag Har smagt dette bryg på fad til en 50 års-fødselsdag og det fungerede upåklageligt. Kroppen er medium fyldig og eftersmagen aldrig afbrudt, eller andet. Medium lang. Et bryg, der typemæssigt skuffer, men ølmæssigt viserklasse ,smagsmæssigt vil være Lækkert.

JorisPPattyn (8015) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 4, 2014
Small cream-coloured head over brown-black beer. Fruity, dried/preserved fruit, dry hops, some dark malts. Sweet-bitter, good dark malts and flavours of dark fruit. Finish has some other grains & spice. Some chocolate retronasal. Medium bodied, rather slick, well-carbonated feel. Not very long-lasting flavours. Warming up, something sourish appears, and more dull spices. Good black IPA. The Økologisk doesn’t spoil anything, which is even better news.

12-JUL-2014, tap @Halsnæs Brewery. Hazy, dark Brown with lasting, lacing, creamy, tan head. Aroma is roast and hops. More to the roasted side with chocolate. Taste the same with some grape fruit and pine and coffee. Very creamy, soft carbonation and medium body. Really a nice surprise and a nice easy drinking Black IPA. Fantastic
