COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Noir is a delectable Black IPA, dripping with piney, aromatic Centennial hops. The malt base is dark and rich, anchored by organic black malt. This provides a strong foundation for the extravagant kettle hopping and dry-hopping that this beer experiences. Enjoy with a night-light.

Douberd (3992) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2016
(Peak Organic Hop Noir) Bottle 355 ml at home, served into a big tulip, ABV 8.2% Black coloured body, small and thin beige head on top, with average retention. Aroma of citrus, light grapefruti, orange peel, light roasted malts. Taste has some faint hops, light citrus, roasted malts, some metallic notes on the finsih, coffee. Medium thin body, good carbonation. The aroma promised more than the taste could deliver, still nice to drink though.

ciocanelu (597) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 4, 2016
Dark brown color with light brown head. Aroma is somehow herbal, like some sort of plant extract. Taste is a bit smokey, dusty, slightly sweet and roasty at first but gets bitter on the finish and lingers in the aftertaste. Body is quite light and well carbonated. Alcohol is present but I wouldn’t have guessed it’s as strong as it is. It’s ok but I wouldn’t drink it again.

Countbeer (5727) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle: Chuffe glass: Large fluffy creamy beige brown head. Dark brown beer. Aroma is very hoppy with a light dose of roast. Fruity and flowers with citrus and a dark part. Nice! Flavour is also quite hoppy with a subtle roastyness. Good strong bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter with some fruity tones. Good. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, more than just medium bodied. Good stuff!

natejgood (451) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Pours a rich dark brown with a small head, but the head is pretty dense. Aroma of floral hops and citrus. Flavor is more stout than IPA. Roasty and sweet at first with a nice hop kick on the back end. Definitely lots of roasted grains in this one. Very smooth in the mouth and I would not have guessed that this beer is 8.2% ABV. Pretty good if you are looking for a black IPA that is farther toward the stout end of the spectrum.

JaKeAFC (811) - ITALY - APR 11, 2015
35 cl bottle in NY. Dark brown color, thick creamy brownish head, strong hoppy nose. Aroma resempbles an IPA with grapefruit, caramel and spices, backed by a dark toasted presence. Strong hops completes the picture. Body is full, thick texture, heavy one. A shot in the dark.
