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.

mcberko (7244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014
500mL bottle, pours black with a small beige / tan head. Nose brings out dark fruits, medium roasted malt, and a decent piney hop kick. Flavour is quite strong, bringing out loads of piney hops upfront, balanced by a robust roasted malt and dark fruit backbone. Nothing restrained about this - a big wallop of hops, but also a big ass malt component. The malt component outshines the hops after a while. Could be balanced better, but this is still very nice.

Ferris (5005) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle - Roast malt and pine hops. Jet black with a very rich beige head. Roast and pine hops, with a huge bitterness that goes as quickly as it comes. Very nicely done.

Beerconnaiseur (109) - BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2014 50 cl bottle. Pour a frothy dark brown with a tanned fluffy head. Feathery light dry-hopped hops and wood evade the bottle on opening. Full-bodied hop-sugar flavours with some hops in the background. Roasted barley offers a plus. Light mouthfeel (one of the most important characteristics) for a high abv which is fitting for the style, still surprising compared to other black IPA’s. Cheer to this evolution. The Hophorn is an easy digestible and con-memorable beer, with lots of different flavours combined. My best Black IPA to date! Anyone tell me where it’s on draught, or old matured bottles to be found.

Scopey (7444) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Keg at Craft Clerko. It pours near black with a medium beige head. The nose is bitter-sweet roast, dirt, cocoa, pine needles and some citrus peel. The taste is bitter, roasty, pine, toast, dirt, grapefruit peel, sherbet, slight soapiness, charred wood and some alcohol with a dry, finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty punchy cda action. Mighty decent.

Niall73 (1871) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at CBC Covent Garden. Pours a dense dark brown with a slight off white head. Light candy, sherbet sweetness, light woody ash in the background, lemon too. Full body, medium carbonation. Booze its fairly upfront though not overwhelming - theres light licorice, treacle, very light soy with candy too, and lemon... Its good.

w_adwersarz (215) - Cracow, POLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Barwa ciemnobrązowa lekko opalizująca z rubinowymi refleksami. Piana ładna dość szybko się rozpadła, krążkując na szkle. Aromat owocowy z czekolada i palone słody oraz ziołowe aromaty chmielu. Trochę ciałka jest, wysycenie średnie. Czekoladowo kawowa paloność, z owocowymi akcentami i bardzo przyjemną średnio wysoką ziołową goryczką.

CapFlu (4616) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Lasting thin beige frothy head atop an opaque black body. Nose of roasted nuts and molasses. Very sharp hops and deep toasted malt. Lasting pine bitterness through the finish. Good. Purchased at Metro Liquor University Heights.

Beergaard (124) - 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.

Niller (742) - Hammel, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle from Hammelhus. Pours dark brown/black with a good tan head. Sweet hoppy taste. Slightly citrus notes, roasted malts, caramel, chocolate notes. Smooth palate. Quite nice bittersweet finish.

Leighton (11889) - 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.
