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 at home from the local Vinmonopolet
Pours dark brown, black in glass, very big tanned head. Smells of chocolate, dark fruits, roasted malts and some hops. Heavy malty taste, medium sweet, fruity and toasty, roasted malts. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation and a quite oily feel. Nice bitter finish, nice resins and some citrus zests.
After some disappointments Midtfyns finally deliver a well crafted nice drinkable beer again. Cheers.

Sampled from 0.5l bottle @ Beer Enthusiast release party. This one pours a dark deep cola-colored body with a medium sized bubbly chocolate head. I get tons of butter and wet cardboard in the aroma - unfortunately. Also some coffee and perhaps some chocolate as well, but a bit to far out on the sweet path this. Flavors: At first I get some mild sour flavors, it has a nice and almost creamy texture with a soft carbonation level. Better in the flavor. Much better! Roasted with a cool cold coffee touch here. I also get lot’s of warming alcohol. Nice and tasty flavors, but the buttery caramel aroma did not make my day. 23.04.2012

500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 9.1%, 186 IBU, 71 EBC. Very dark brown colour, nearly black. Large and lasting beige head. Delightful aroma of American hops, notes of citrus (incl. orange marmalade) and tropical fruits, also pine, hints of coffee. The flavour is medium sweet with notes of chocolate and mild coffee, but first and foremost well hopped, with citrussy and resinous hops throughout. The bitterness is, however, not as extreme as I feared , but solid enough. Another fine beer from Midtfyns and home brewer Claus Christensen.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Wow! Was really looking forward to taste this one when I heard that Vinmonopolet was about to start selling it. This beer really met my hopes and expectations. Pours a verry dark brown colour, with a white to brown head that last very lng. Aroma of coffee, roast, sweet raisins and leather. Full bodied with a fantastic mouthfeel. The aftertaste is very bitter, with a mixture of citrus, licorice and mild coffee. One of the best beers I’ve tasted, if not the best. Would recommend everyone to taste this. Accually everyone should taste this!

Bought at Vinmonopolet Tromsø Sentrum. Dark brown body with an off white, almost beige, creamy head. Nice roasty and grassy aroma mixed with sweet malts. Coffee and dark chocolate in the finish with earthy tones. Quite good!

Bottle from Travlr, thanks. Pours cola black with a small head. Aroma has cola, hops, citrus, grapefruit notes, notes of dark wort, sweetened bread and caramel malts, a bit of buttery notes. The aroma feels a bit dusty. Taste is malty sweetness and chocolate notes up front, then hops kick in and provide bitterness and citrusy grapefruit notes, has a dry yeast thing going and the finish, lingering hoppy bitterness and coffee notes. Decent, but a pretty meh black IPA.

Bottle sample at Beer Enthusiast release tasting, Bergen. Has a black colour, with its beige head it could’ve been a dark roasted coffee I had in my glass. The aroma is fantastic with a touch of some chocolate roast, chocolate truffles, coffee, dried fruit, and some cola. Much Chocolate is in the taste, and feels not unlike coffee mocha. More dried fruit that sends me in the direction of port wine. A truly good and great beer, and feels beautifully smooth in the mouth. Incredibly easy-drinking in relation to the ABV.
