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.

JanLaursen (3159) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle, 50 cl. Mahagony brown with a very decent beige head. Nose is rasted, licorice, grapefruity hoppy. Taste s well balanced, sweet malty and bitter hoppy. Not fantastic, but very likeable and drinkable, maybe a touch too boozy.

Glouglouburp (6075) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2012
In short: A roasted and well hopped Black IPA that somehow doesn’t really work as well as it should. Slightly below average for the style
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed fresh the day of purchase
The look: Near black body topped by a medium tan head with good retention and leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: The hoppy nose has green pine needles and herbal-flowery hops backed up by strong notes of roast. Taste has lots of burnt malts, a bit ashy, a strong yeasty sensation, some burnt caramel, and a lot of hops. The hop profile is a bit of everything, grapefruity, green pine needles, dry grass, flowery. I was once again slightly bothered by an overall perfume sensation, happens too often these days. Fluffy mouthfeel with a very lively carbonation. Somehow the whole was less than the sum of its parts, a bit simplistic in the highly roasted malt department and a hop profile that didn’t really work with the malt bill. All in all, a slightly below average example of a bastard style I usually like. Nothing special here, just another rating for me, and with over 5000 ratings entered on ratebeer so far every time I enter a new rating I can’t decide whether this is a new high or a new low in my life.

Bottle. Dark red/brown body. Large head. Sweet aroma, with a tad freshness, red berries. Sweet flavour of both berries, tropical fruits and coffee. Nice complexity. Quite bitter finish. (At home, 06.10.2012)

bergstaden (1305) - Røros, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2012
Black with a light brown head - Very nice hoppy aroma stight away along with some hints of roasted malt and coffee - good malt body with some roasted notes, licorice, coffee and a nice bitterness that lingers for a long time in the finish, along with some alcohol warmth in the back - this was really good

garza (568) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - SEP 21, 2012
Pours a very dark redish brownie blackish look (?) with an average tan head. Fruity aroma with presence of the malts and hops and hints of licorice and chocolate. Malty roasted taste, notes of chocolate, spiced flavour. Light sweetness, medium bitterness. Full body, oily feel, soft carbonation, nice long bitter finish. Good one.

Black IPA Cascadian IPA, all names but this is a very nice blend of darkness malty coffeish ale, I agree with some that more hops would suit this but then, brew it your self.
