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.

50 cl bottle from Papsoe. Thanks Henrik! Best before date of 3/20/15. It pours a dark brown color with a khaki head. The aroma is very nice with pine and citrus hops backed up nicely by some caramel, cocoa, plum and slight hints of raisin. Very sweet, like hop encrusted raisinettes. Yum. The flavor is similar with sweet grapefruit, orange and mild pineapple up front followed by more cocoa, raisin and roasted malt near the finish. Very sweet, fruity brew. Good hop presence. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Super tasty. I really enjoyed this one.

Flaske: Sort IPA er ikke min øltype, men her fungerer det faktisk rigtig godt. Masser af humle i duften. Smagen er ikke brændt men de mørke malte kan smages ovenpå en fin humling. Nærmest ingen bitterhumle hvilket igen er en god ting.

650ml bottle poured a black color with aromas of roast, chocolate, citrus, and hops. Flavors follow suit, with a weird aftertaste, glad I got to try this one out, interesting beer for my liking.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye with a best before of 26/03/2014. Pours with a hazed brown hued body with a small tan head. Aromas are spicy, hoppy and herbal with light roast and chocolate. Flavors are chocolate, fruity, juicy citrus, earthy and roasty. Quite bitter with an overall bitter balance. Lively bubbles and dry with a lasting bitterness. Feels very PNW despite its international origins.

Bottle. Fruity aroma. Black colour. Small tan head. The flavour is sweetish with a good grassy hop note to balance. A little cream or vanilla. A good version of a dark hoppy beer.

Black body, huge light brown head. Intense hoppy aroma with grassy hops, pine, some grapefruit, and coffee. Full, well carbonated palate. Great bitter flavour with grapefruit and pine, as well as coffee and some dark chocolate. Excellent and very well balanced.

Bottle sample at Beer Enthusiast release tasting. Has a dark and deep brown colour and is quite unclear, with some light beige head. A wonderful fruity aroma of hops, coffee, leather, dried fruit, prunes, and a nice roasted character in the end. The beer has a wonderful coffee flavour with bitter and dark chocolate and dried fruit. Has a very smooth mouth feel, and medium bitterness. A beer with a great balance, and reminds me of a mixture of IPA and a stout/porter, but is more on the IPA side.
