COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Denne sorte amerikansk IPA er et samarbejde mellem Midtfyns Bryghus og vinderen af de Fynske, Danske og Nordiske Mesterskaber i håndbryg, Claus Christensen fra Munkebo Mikrobryg. Den er brygget med en unik blanding af de mest kraftfulde amerikanske humlesorter som giver en perfekt balance mellem humlen og noterne fra den ristede byg. Gleipner er Fenrisulvens kæde. Den er smedet af bjergenes rødder og kattepoters larm. Pas på, når du først har smagt den én gang, er du lænket til Ragnarok kommer.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 Bottle from Bierzwerg!
Pours deep black with creamy off-white head. Smells slight hoppy, malty-roasty with some coffee. Starts with strong roasted malts, paired with dark dried fruits and some citrussy hops. Goes into a roasted malty, fruity finish with lots of licorice.

500ml bottle @ cabin. Ordered from Bierzwerg. Nice surprice, I remembered that this was normal Indian Pale Ale. When pouring to glass, thought that pretty black colour ;-) I havent tasted any bad beer from Midtfyns.. This is also very good. Not too ’burned’.

StilleStorm (753) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2013
Pours dark brown, nice lasting creamy head. Hoppy, malty, coffee aroma. Roasted malty coffee, hoppy taste. Somewhat oily mouthfeel. Interresting.. hoppy dry finish. I like..

olio (6277) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2013
50 cl bottle. BBE 09.07.2014.
Pours clear dark copper-red, almost black color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is quite caramelly and a bit syrupy, some resiny hops and vanilla-infused roasted malts follow, very faint dark berry notes on the background. A very pleasant and interesting aroma. The creamy and smooth palate is a bit surprising though. Roasted malts and vanilla are up front on the flavor, some oily hops and sweet caramel follow with somewhat milky chocolaty finish. Low to medium carbonation, full-bodied, sweetish chocolaty aftertaste. Alcohol is extremely well hidden. Very good but maybe a bit too soft hop-wise.

lusikka (6343) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2013
500 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a small, thick, white creamy head. Aroma of strong roasted malts, licorice root, tobacco and grass. Flavour of strong roasted malts, licorice, biscuit, floral notes, dark chocolate, espresso, grapefruit and some caramel sweetness. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Really smooth and lingering bitter finish with strong floral bitterness, chocolate and biscuit. Towards the end the bitterness gets stronger and stronger. Alcohol warms only a little. Not too aggressive but still has a nice hop profile and loads of fruity sweetness with different roasty flavours as well.

Idiosynkrasie (3924) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2013
500ml bottle. Dark brown colour with average to huge, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Dark malty aroma with fruity and chocolately notes, a touch of nougat, red berries, hoppy overtones with hints of grapefruit. Taste is bitter hoppy with grapefruit notes, underlying hints of bitter almond, bitter chocolate, nougat, fruit parings. Somewhat monotonous and unpleasant bitter taste, hints of "matured" nougat; simply not tasty. Certainly not applicable as far as the ingredients are concerned, but sadly true for the taste coming out: dusty, fusty, scruffy.

mile (3033) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown, cloudy, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel, roasted malt with some tropical fruitiness, lots of grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, some caramel and some roasted malt, light fruitiness and some caramel, piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, some caramel, roasted malt and lots of piney hoppyness. Really well hopped (black)IPA. Bit too much caramel in the flavor/finish.
