COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bridge Road Brewers together with gypsy brewer Mikkel Borg Bjergs 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.

marcus (9692) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 14, 2015

laiti (8217) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 22, 2013
33 cl bottle @ Timo A, bottled 30.03.2012, BBE 05/2013
Aroma has vanilla, nettles, fruity hops, roasted notes and coffee. Flavour is hoppy with gooseberry bush, nettles, some fruity notes, hints of ash and coffee. Foamy palate is a bit too high on CO2.

larsga (7407) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
Biggish brown head. Clear deep dark red body. Roasty chocolate and coffee aroma with gooseberry and wine grape notes. Dry roasty earthy chocolate taste with gooseberry notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry roasty coffee and earth aftertaste with long lingering resin and gooseberry notes. Excellent combination of flavour: earthy, dusty roastiness together with gooseberry hops works very well. (0.33l draft at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen.)

02-NOV-2012, bottle @home, from lbutikken. Clear almost black with lasting tan head. Roast and hops. Licorice, grape fruit, pine, chocolate. Not hard roasted. Quite balanced if it does lean to a side it is the ipa side but really nice. Soft carbonation, medium body. Finish a little soapy and bitter from hops. Very nice black ipa.
