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.

Bottle@Home. Strong Black American IPA. Pours very dark with a rich off-white head. Smells of burned coffee. Complex taste with dark roasted coffee and raisins dominant. I also get a hint of vanilla. Would perhaps have liked it to be a little more hops in the taste. It’s an IPA after all.

Bottle. Clear dark brown beer with a quite nice beige head. Chocolate aroma, milky, hoppy, pine needles, grapes, pineapple, cocoa powder, toffee, vanilla, figs, apricot and grapefruit notes. Hoppy chocolate flavor, vanilla, toffee, grapes, cocoa powder, roasted, metal, caramel, grassy herbal notes, apples. Very interesting with the porter taking more space than the IPA, and I like that. Chocolate finish with vanilla, perfume, pineapple and grapes. Hats off!

Ozzak (43) - BERGEN, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2012
50 cl bottle. Black with some red hints when held towards the light. Big, off white head that lasts, leaving lacings on the glass. Nice aroma, first and foremost from the hops; resiny with some herbs and/or spices. The malt is giving some roasty notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Nice, bitter taste, eventually giving way to the sweetness and the roastiness of the malt. The bitterness dominates the aftertaste, but the sweetness is putting on a fight, ensuring the finish to last for quite a bit. Nice.

ej (680) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2012
deep deep brown&amber, but not entirely black, with a solid inch of tan head. Nose is full of pine and caramel, but i also detect some butterscotch. Taste is piney and rather mellow, also with a hint of the butterscotch. Well balanced but with a distinct bitter finish. The roastyness i usually expect from a black IPA is very well hidden. Medium to full bodied and softly carbonated.

0.5 L bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Opaque, dark brown to black. Tall creamy sand-colored head. Fairly mild hop nose, some oranges and hint of currants. Nicely rounded malt aroma, creamed coffee and discreet roast tones. Full body, silky mouthfeel. Taste is complex and well balanced. Not overly bitter, but just enought to balanced the malts. Creamed coffee flavored as well. Also some nice tones of red berries and peppery caramel. A light bitterness and some fine roasty tones linger in the finish. Not unlike an American style Porter, this one. Nevertheless, a lovely beverage.
