COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Med Hophorn vil vi forsøge at kombinere det bedste fra flere øltyper. Humlebitterhed og aroma og duft fra IPA’ener, maltfylde og en antydning af ristet malt fra stout og porter. Farven er som valnøddetræ – dyb og mørk. Vi har humlet til 135 IBU, og der er tørhumlet i rigt mål med fire humlesorter. Der er sødme fra 5 forskellige bygmalte, karamelsmag fra krystalmalte og noter fra chokolademalten. Hophorn er meget smagfuld, og bør nydes i glas på stilk – så bliver den allerflottest med den beige skumkrone.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours dark brown with a large dense tan head. Aroma is hoppy with citrus together with a nice chocolate and coffee backbone, some caramel notes. Taste has a sweet carmel malty backbone with chocolate, coffee and a bitter grassy hops. Smooth medium body and a nice chocolate and grassy hop finish, soft carbonation.

Majek (270) - Ząbki, POLAND - MAR 4, 2014
Very dark colour with big and fluffy beige head. Intensive aroma of citrus(lots of grapefruit!), roasted malts, dark bread, chocolate and minimal alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet on the beginning and very hoppy and bitter aftertward. Finish is extremely long and really bitter. Despite of strong bitterness, it’s well balanced and quite drinkable. Fantastic example of strong black IPA.

Svesse (5845) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2013
(Bottle) Dark brown colour, almost black, with lasting beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark bread, chocolate, roasted malt and pine needles. Malty, roasted taste with dark bread, roasted malt, chocolate, grapefruit, hints of mint and a generous resinous, piney bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a slight sweetness. Considering its fairly powerful bitterness and alcohol level, it feels quite well balanced and drinkable. Very nice.

jookos (1519) - FINLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle@bruuveri, hki. Black. Fruity grapefruit, green berry, pines on nose, with a good roasted barley, soft chocolate espresso backing. Full soft body, very intensively flavoured. Soft, slight rubbery roastedness, green hoppyness. Well bittered, but soft palate. A slightly resinous, powdered chocolate, finish. Really nice ale for the dark afterworks here. Full and almost creamy soft, with lots of good flavours.

Marstonlad (328) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle at Bruuveri, Helsinki. Aroma of heavily roasty dark maltiness, plenty of chocolate, coffee and also pretty much piny hoppiness. Taste is both malty and very hoppy. Initial sweetness lingers surprisingly long before balancing bitterness starts to feature. The combination of rich roasty chocolaty notes and piny and grassy elements is delightfully rich. Taste is very long; the palate round, full and smooth. Excellent black IPA that is very close to an imperial stout in my opinion.
