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.

Sampler from bottle at Nærbø Ølfestival 2011. Deep mahogany with a creamy and beige head. Toffee, butterscotch nose. Roasted, bitter, dried fruits, alcohol and a hoppy acidity. Full bodied. Smooth. Leaves a dry tongue.

Sampled at Nærbø Ølfestival. Dark amber body with a thin beige head. Aroma is fruity, yeast and chewing gum, not in a bad way – rather nice. Flavor is sweet malty, slightly roasted, hint of chocolate, fruity and decent bitter. Fine body, hoppy aftertaste. A nice and flavorful beer.

(50 cl bottle from Vinens Verden; BBD: May 11th 2013) Pours black with rich, tan head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is herbal hoppy with notes of roasted barley, sour cream and licorice. Creamy on the palate, softly carbonated, medium-bodied with a bitter and smooth, alcoholic finish.Taste is dark and roasted with a mild bitterness. Girlfriend says: "Too strong for what it is."

On tap at Ølfestival 2011. A creamy, two-finger thick beige head sits on top of a black body. Beauty of the day so far, that’s for sure. And the aroma and flavor turned out to be among the best they too. There’s piney hops, a light roasted touch, citrus peel and I can sense some alcohol as well in the nose. The flavor has a licorice accent, introducing roasted malts, piney hops, some alcohol and coffee. Could maybe use a bit more bitterness I think, but a nice one anyway. Full-bodied and lightly warming on the palate. Overall, a bit on the sweet side, but very nice anyway. 110527

jesperhammer (3049) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2011
14-OCT-2011, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer". Almost black with lasting low beige head. Nose is roasted malty sweet with mostly coffee and then the hops adds grape fruit and a touch of pine. Taste is coffee, licorice, grape fruit, dark fruits, pine and nuts. Perhaps a bit below medium carbonation, a bit above medium mouthfeel, and a long roasted and bitter aftertaste. Lovely.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - SEP 29, 2011
I’ve really come to love this style. Hazy blackish with a light brown head. Big american hop aroma along with toasted malt notes. Complex bitter flavor, roasted and hoppy without much sweetness. Great

(on bottle) pitch black, light beige head. Nive mixture of coffee and heavy hop notes; very destinct factor for a bipa to me. Well made. Good balanced carbonation, levels out a slightly too dominant roasted taste. Because of this, this hopping are delayed some, just enough to tip the scale to a domination of roast, cocoa and coffee, too bad, cause the hopes are close but no cigar.
