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.

Beergaard (63) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2014
Dark brownish beer with a small beige head that unfortunately fates quickly - quite pleasant carbonation though. Lovely aroma with both dried berries, dried abricot, malt, a very floral hoppiness, notable alcohol notes and a distinct earthiness as well. Very complex taste that combines the best from two worlds: the roasted maltiness with both coffee and dark chocolate from the stout and a nice bitter, citrus-like, fruity and floral hoppyness from the IPA that is expressed especially in the end. Long aftertaste. Great beer.

Leighton (10674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Keg at CBC Islington - London. Pours clearish, red-brown with a creamy, tan head. The nose holds lots of piney hops, some boozy fruits, dark bread, perfume. Medium sweet flavor with steady bitterness, burnt pine, warm alcohol, dark berries. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Warming alcohol on the finish with oily hops, torched wood, dirt, grapefrut rind, charred pine. Very good.

tom10101 (2698) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
On tap @ La Fine Mousse. Dark brown with a small ring of beige foam and little lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, piney hops, light citrus and hints of chocolate. Taste is moderately bitter with roasted malt, pine and light citrus. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Moderately dry finish. Alcohol is well hidden and it’s quite drinkable considering the abv. Good Black IPA.

mgajdaczewa (479) - Katowice, POLAND - APR 18, 2014
W aromacie mnóstwo mlecznej czekolady, paloność, lekka kawa, od chmielu początkowo aromat leśny, po czasie przechodzący w owoce tropikalne (w polewie czekoladowej). W smaku jest nieco gorzej, wyraźna mleczna czekolada, wysoka, ale przyjemna goryczka, i niestety lekko przeszkadzająca nuta alkoholowa. Całość zdecydowanie warta zachodu.
