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.

Predominante aroma cafetero tostado. Espuma densa y muy duradera. Black IPA excelente y muy fiel al estilo, para repetir! Le pega muy bien un trozo de queso de oveja curado.

Rating #453, bottle from Fish N’ Beer

A brew like this makes me consider if Black IPA is my new favourite style instead of the beloved Imperial Stout. However, I have only had two Black IPA’s, and I will have to try a few other before deciding this for good. With this, appearance is red-brown hazy and with a delicate head. Aroma is magnificent, malty, hoppy, and a lot of cascade - how do I describe this divine drink? Some chocolate are even to be smelled among all the other stuff, and the flavor repeats the pattern from the aroma just with a little candy-like touches to the cascade, and upon that a bunch of tobacco-associations from the hops. Compared to the other Black IPA I have had, Double Black IPA from Amager Bryghus, I must say that this is a notch better as it keeps it refreshing abilities. While Double Black IPA is a kind of a citric and hoppy stout-like beer, this is more like a delicate Imperial IPA with chocolate and malts in an amount that is unheard of. Fantastic, but still, a 4.6 as it is not as good as the Black Hole Imperial Stout from Mikkeller, that I have rated 4.7.

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.

A very bitter very good beer. A nice hoppy beer, but not a rounded beer :-)

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - MAY 11, 2012
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.

Bought in a beer shop in Vejle, Denmark. It is very good black IPA with everything required to be a good decent beer.

Dark as hell, with the juice brutally squeezed out of the hop cones. A serious winter beer. Once your palate adjusts, it is a complex beer which keeps the saliva running. Grains and malt, pine, tar , resin, smoke.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2012
In short: A world-class by-the-book Black IPA. That simple. One of the best of its kind.
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed 2.5 years before expiration date (so probably relatively fresh)
The look: Dark brown body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Nose is uber-hoppy with a ton of juicy citrusy hops over a nice freshly baked black cake. Taste is. A solid malt backbone, roasted but not too roasted, chocolaty but not too chocolaty, thick but not syrupy, no alcohol presence, only a light sweetness sensation. And then a truckload of hops that feel fresh and vibrant. Citrusy, resinous, grassy, leafy. Very tasty bitterness that never feels aggressive even thought its resinous character sticks to the back of the mouth for what seems like a full minute. Drinks like a 5% session Black IPA. Yep, a Black IPA lover wet-dream. Probably in on of my personal top-5 Black IPA so far, exactly like I love them, it’s like this brewer read my mind to make this beer, but I hope nobody can actually read my mind, that would be embarrassing, with the midgets porn and all...
