COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: P Amager Bryghus har vi altid med stor fornjelse nydt at bne drene for gstebryggere fra den ganske verden. Black Nitro er sledes et samarbejde med den amerikanske grsrodslhippie Shaun E. Hill, som har vret med til bringe Nrrebro Bryghus frem i eliten af innovative danske bryghuse, og nu er p vej med sit eget projekt Hill Farmstead Brewery tilbage i hjemstaten Vermont. Til Black Nitro valgte Shaun at grave en gammel opskrift frem fra hans helt unge r som brygger. Mrke IPAer er en trend fra USA, som med denne l nu ogs har ramt Danmark. Farven er mrkebrun p vej mod det sorte, men ved anvendelse af en srlig teknik har vi undget de brndte toner, som normalt flger med de mrke malte. Aromaen er kan vel nrmest beskrives som bredspektret humle gennem anvendelsen af en vifte af noble amerikanske sorter. S er du til mrke og fyldige l og samtidig nyder de fantastiske duftindtryk fra god amerikansk aromahumle, s er vi ikke i tvivl om, at du hermed har fundet en ny yndlingsl. En varm tak til Shaun og et stort held og lykke med hans eget bryggeri. Ingredienser: Maris Otter bygmalt, lys karamelmalt, sortmalt, havre, hvede, humle, vand og amerikansk overgr.

ciocanelu (1930) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 16, 2015
Dark brown color with medium brown head. Aroma has roasted malts and fresh, grassy hops. Taste starts hoppy with juicy fruit notes, the bitterness increasing towards the finish. Aftertaste lingers bitter with grapefruit pith and roasted malt. Really well put together black IPA.

03.18.2014 Full dark chocolate brown pour on tap at Worthy Kitchen. Some lingering off white head. So much body! This drinks nice and smooth. Earthy, roasty, and well balanced overall. I wouldnt turn this down if offered it again.

TheFoamhead (260) - Vught, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Perfectly dark with almost no light shining through... Stable Tan head - up to its best! Bitterhops and aromahops form a perfectly balanced, grassy citric aroma, enriched by subtle coffee notes topped by some roasted nuts and licorice. Licorice bocomes the main flavor when taking the fist sip. Perfectly dry, no sweetness, columbian coffee, some 100% dark chocolate in the finish.

danlo (2854) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2015
500ml bottle from Mikkeller webshop. Pours black in colour with a tan foam head leaving lacing. Aroma of smokey earthy roasted malt with a hoppy note. Taste is roast malt, smokey & earthy, chocolate, coffee, and some citrus & pine hop, grassy bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry roast bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Bawelt (746) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 2, 2015
quilibre plus que parfait entre la torrfaction et lhoublonnage. On navigue entre la rondeur/amertume du caf et le houblonnage bien vert. Belle longueur. Apparente complexit alors quon a "juste" une complmentarit magnifiquement dose.

tomekk1978 (1387) - Zbki, POLAND - NOV 15, 2015
Aromat: na pierwszym planie zioła i iglaki pochodzące z chmielu, nieco pźniej cytrusy. Następnie ciemne słody z czekoladą, karmelem (zbyt dużym), kawą zbożową czy kakao. Paloność ograniczona. Lekkie nuty utlenienia.

Wygląd: barwa czarna, nie przejrzysta nawet pod światło. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita i trwała. Ślicznie oblepia szkło. Ideał.

Smak: spora słodycz, alkohol, ciemne słody (j.w. z tym, że tutaj już zdecydowana paloność, wręcz popił), skontrowane chmielem. Goryczka ziołowa, leśna, wzmacniana przez paloność i alkohol. Niestety jest niezbyt przyjemna, bowiem szczypiąca i zalegająca. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie i palona końcwka wraz z goryczką oraz nutą alkoholową, ogrzewająca przełyk. Po przychylnych ocenach na rb spodziewałem się zdecydowanie więcej. Mocno przeciętne, ciekawsze zdarzyło mi się popełnić w domu.

mansquito (5976) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2015
The Sampler, Brooklyn nitro: pours black with fat nitro tan head. Aroma is floral, spicy, and maybe a tad fruity with roasted malts and the like. Taste is nicely bitter. Chocolate and roast comes in better through the taste. Nice gooey aftertaste. Gets a bit more bitter with the ensuing sips. Nice.

Bulk_Carrier (4729) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - OCT 27, 2015
This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a black color with a tan one finger foamy head that dissipated within less than about forty seconds. Lacing was mostly messy. The smell started off with roasty coffee to sweet cocoa beans. Light pine and citrusy hops make an effort to try and blend but remain in the background. Black licorice ends up coming for the balance. The taste was mainly sweet with a dried cocoa malty-like substance. Sticky sweet licorice notes slide into the aftertaste and runs into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about medium bodied with a decent sessionable to sipping quality to it. Carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Black licorice creates a big smooth creamy sort of feel to this beer. Overall, as a black ale/CDA, I dont see it. Roasty malt sweetness is too overpowering and theres not enough bitter hops to bring in the normal balance of the style. However, the creativity of a collaboration of what I did get from this beer is really good as I know I would have this again for me. Just dont look at this one as a normal black ale and youll be fine.
