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.

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’.

Nydelig duft av friske frukter og mørk sjokolade. Dyp sort farge. Dekkende brunt skum. Fin frisk smak av frukter med en herlig ettersmak av mørk sjokolade.

My favorite black IPA, no contest. Midtfyn is one of my absolute favorite breweries, and some of their beers, including this, in my top 20. This beer gives you such hoppy pleasures it just has to be experienced. I love the use of norse mythology. Gleipner was the rope or chain that held the wolf Fenris. The god of war, Tyr, lost his arm putting the chain around the still young Fenris neck. The chain was made from impossible things. I think the brewer must have had access to some of those impossible things, but is it the roots of mountains or the loud sound of kittens that helped this beer become and instant classic? Or was it a more mundane use of the right hops? You decide.

Bottle. Black color with a small beige head. Aroma is vineous with roasted malt, toffee and grapefruit. Taste of coffee, sweet chocolate, and a light fruity kick. Sweet licorice in swallow, missing some hops for a bipa, the aftertaste has a slight citric touch together with coffee and licorice.

Dark brown pour with tan head. Inital aroma is a mixture of babypowder and coca beans. Don’t know if that is an off-taste or not. Texture is oily, while body is medium. Taste is like a quality coffee stout, but withhout the stamina.

Great looking, which matches with the quality of the beer. Aromas combine to the perfection the coffee-ish and smoky notes from the roasted malts and the hoppy traces. The mouthfeel is inclined to the hops, creating a very well balanced beer, robust but elegant. A prodigy of balance, an excellent beer.

Black body, light brown head. Aroma has chocolate, roasted caramel, medicinal hops. Flavour is bit harsh and ashy with chocolate, alcohol warmth, and cough medicin.

500 ml bottle. BB 09/07/2014. From bierkompass.de.
Black colour with a small tan head. Sourness, ash, roasted malt and some hoppy bitterness in the aroma. Hoppy bitterness, roasted malt and ashy notes in a strong and harsh flavour. This more like well hopped Imperial Stout and a real Black IPA. Rather tasty though.

Bottle pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma is explosive, exotic, fruity and a tad roasted-. Flavour is bitter, fruity, and roasted.
