Bridge Road Brewers together with gypsy brewer Mikkel Borg Bjergsø of Mikkeller created a one off brew one Friday evening of March 2012. The result is The Dark Harvest. Inspired by the timing of the collaboration, it was decided to make a dark beer, using locally grown fresh hops. Of several research hops being grown at Rostrevor Hop Garden, one variety stood out for selection and was harvested just hours before being added to this beer.

Black pour with a small white head, some lacing. Aroma of citrus and roasted dark malts. Tastes bitter, burnt malts, citrus, funk. Low carbonation, light bodied. Enjoyable.

Opaque cloudy medium dark brown. Beige very creamy fizzy head and spotty legs. Smells of grassy hop, light to moderate chalky dark malt, oatmeal very lightly leafy/vegetal. Pretty nice nose - good balance and restrained. Taste is quite bitter, somewhat stony, light oat. Body is very bitter, light frothiness.

Bottle from Brewcraft at home after Catan. Translucent cola brown pour - hazy with a light tan head. Aroma is milk chocolate, grassy hops, also kind of urine. Taste is fresh grassy bitter hops with chocolate roastiness. Light slightly chalky palate. Not bad at all but probably wouldn't get again.

Colore marrone scuro, schiuma beige a grana finissima e di buona persistenza. Al naso intensa tostatura, leggermente secca, si avverte una nota dolce. Birra molto beverina, corpo medio, buon ingresso di malto tostato e cioccolato, retrogusto amaro e finale secco. Carbonazione media. Una bipa ben fatta, con una luppolatura decisa, un buon equilibrio tra dolce e amaro.

On tap at Bitter Phew, pours black with a large brown head. Aroma brings out loads of roasted malt and piney hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with a highly roasted, nearly burnt malt quality upfront, backed by tons of bitter piney hops. Nicely balanced, with a harsh finish that works. Very good.

From a bottle. One of my favourite styles, light on the roasted flavours it’s quite hop forward. Very nice stuff.

M_Sack (793) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottled 10/4/14. Deep black, off white frothy head. Aromas of milk chocolate, toasty coffee, loads of malt and a lick of grassy hops. A strong background of chocolate, coffee and milk with grassy/earthy hops going straight through the middle from start to finish. Beautiful beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (4104) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle.Nose of roast malt, piney hop, light chocolate, and alcohol fumes. Dark brown color with translucent edges and a light tan head. Flavors of roast malt, moderate piney hop, quite fruity, light citrus, and a gentle roast malt finish. Thin-medium body, light on the palate. Certainly a bit of a variant on the US version of the style (given the AUS hopping). Nice, but not really exceptional.
