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.

jookos (1523) - 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 (332) - 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.

Tomy63 (173) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 19, 2013
Couleur : très noire, peu de mousse. Nez : très expressif, sur le café, un peu de fruits noirs mais aussi des fruits exotiques (mangue, passion). Bouche : texture épaisse, un peu sucrée, superbe ampleur aromatique, les 135IBU passent tout seul. On retrouve un mélange de café et de fruits exotiques. Finale : très longue, légèrement amère. Un modèle de Black IPA.

humlelala (881) - DENMARK - NOV 3, 2013
(50 cl bottle from Toft Vin; BBD: July 23rd 2016) Pours black with ample, creamy and tan head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is both hoppy (resin, spruce) and malty with notes of toffee and licorice. The aroma is somewhat remniscient of Beer Here’s Dark Hops. Oily texture, soft carbonation, full body and a finish with all of the aroma notes present - i.e. well balanced malt and hops although they are not that well defined individually.

tfredvik (942) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2013
Pours a very dark brown body with a medium brown head that reduces to foamy islands and a ring of bubbles at the walls. The aroma is very strong, sweet, delicious and definitely on the hoppy side. I do get some lightly roasted notes, dark caramel and chocolate, but the overripe tropical fruits are dominating. Also some citric hints. The taste is moderate sweet and the long-lasting finish is heavy bitter. Strong flavours of overripe tropical fruits, dark caramel and chocolate mid-palate and bitter coffee and resinous notes in the finish. Close to full body, oily texture and quite soft carbonation. A wonderful DIPA with a touch of stout and porter.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 years before BB date, from Kastanielys, Sjællands Odde, Denmark]

fall_ep78 (6) - DENMARK - NOV 1, 2013 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 500 ml. bottle bought in Vin & Delikatesse Huset in Holstebro. Poured into a snifter and the aroma of the hops used hit you straight away. Creamy and hoppy palate, but not much taste from the Stout malts are to be found. It is what it sats it is: a dark stout - and a great one! Lovely beer!!

czar (3790) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
pours dark brown with a resilient beige head, good retention and nice lacing. dark almost smoked malts, burnt chocolate, bit of ashes and vegetal notes, maybe a bit stale as this bottle is not quite fresh, pine and resin, molasses, shy fruitiness underneath. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, sticky and heavy, slightly harsh peppery-piney finish. o-k.

Gerbeer (1494) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with light head. Beautiful aromas of dark fruit, pine, cola, and roasted malt. Flavors of pine, roasted malts, liquorice,, and burnt sugar. Very nice.

TET (1434) - FINLAND - SEP 13, 2013
A colablack beer with an almost medium and beautiful, beige head. The nose is balanced, roastiness and some chocolate, grapefruits and fresh pine forest. Taste is also balanced, roastiness, coffee and some liquirice, a medium bitterness is grapefruity and slightly piney. Medium bodied, nice and smooth to drink. The simple beer, but that’s not bothering, the great balance is the best part of this black IPA, a very good beer.

LicoriceKing (48) - DENMARK - AUG 30, 2013
Dark brown color. Aroma: Chocolate, hops, caramel, vanilla and coffee. Taste: Hops, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, licorice and roasty. Soft carbonation, bitter finish. Very drinkable at a rather high ABV. Definitely makes sense to classify this as a Black IPA, but I don’t think I got it very fresh, the hop presence could be more up-front. Pretty sweet. It’s definitely not bad at this stage, I just have a feeling it has been even better!
