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.

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.

TET (1569) - 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.

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!

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2013
Tap at CBC Islington, 29/08/13. Light black/extremely dark mahogony brown with a good sized light tan head. Nose is light roast, sugars, cocoa, toffee fudge, mineral notes. Taste comprises chocolate pudding, light pine, brown sugars, bubblegum, hop presence evident. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet finish with a touch of roast countered by some hop bitterness. Pleaseant enough CDA, the 9.3% is very well hidden, however a little overly sweet for my own personal taste in regard to this style.

Craft Islington. Keg. Clear deep red - brown beer. Little pale cream coloured head. Smooth and softish palate. Fine carbonation. Smooth and slightly sweet dark malt cream, luxuriant. A little dark chocolate but no roast or bitterness. Touch of red berry fruits. Smooth piney hops underpinned by light citrus and tropical fruits. Finishes soft and creamy with all flavours coming together. A sumptuous treat of a double black ipa.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Brown-red pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of pine and grass with some toffee and tea notes. The flavor is light smoke, toffee, caramel, resinous pine, alcohol and a medium amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
