3.84/5 rDev -0.3%
Reviewed from notes. Shared by Roy - thanks. Collaboration with Grassroots.
A: Pours and dark brown with reddish edges under a half-inch thick off-white head which yields spotty lace.
N: Citrusy hops and dark malts.
T: Roasty, hoppy and malty. Fairly bland.
M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Semi-dry and bitter roasty finish.
O: A Shawn influenced black ale. Not so much.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Nearly black. Nice khaki head. Thick collar. Leggy on the swirl.
Smell - Bright grapefruit. Roasted malt. Coffee and caramel.
Taste - Lots of grapefruit, again. Roasted malt immediately. Gets very bitter. Coffee and burnt malt bitterness. Grassy hop flavor comes back and almost overpowers the roasted malt, but not quite.
Mouthfeel - Very burnt and bitter. Medium carbonation.
Overall - If you can get past the intense roast, it's really good. But it is really burnt.

beautiful black with super nice tan topper- nice and firm!
lots of hops on the smell, a little bit of the band aid smell... but kind of sweet. some malt...
taste is band aid also, a little sweet; bitter as it goes down. each successive swallow yields a little more serious malt taste yet a little bit more bitterness. almost rye-like. and yet, a little chocolate-y. overall, a very decent brew. this brewery makes a lot of different brews and imports quite a few of them to California....

Poured into Hill Farmstead Tulip glass.
Appearance: black bodied beer with 3 fingers of tan white head. Head has a lot of staying power and slowely drops down to an uneven cap leaving plenty of thick lacing on the glass.
Smell: pine and grapefruit rind hops. roasty malts that smell more ashen than roasty.
Taste: starts off with mild bitterness that has an increasing bitterness after each sip. The beer finishes with moderate bitterness; lots of resinous pine and grapefruit rinds. Maybe even some fruitness from the hops. The malts similiar to a liquid smoke or an ashen flavor. This beer smells simliar to how it tastes, but it tastes better than it smells.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with almost moderate carbonation levels. The beer feels a little thin and watery. I like it when a black IPA has a creamy mouthfeel. This beer doesnt quite have that going for it.
Overall: Nice black black ale or black IPA whatever you want to call it! Nothing that stands out as unique, but this style seems to be a beer style that once you have tried one the rest taste the same. This reminds me of a less complex version of New Glarus Black Top; which to this point is the best example of this beer style that I have drank so far. A creamier mouthfeel would really do alot for this beer. I guess that I expected a little bit more from this beer with the Grassroots brand attached to this collaboration beer. This is my first Amager Bryghus brew that I have had, maybe Amager Bryghus had more of an influence on this beer than Grassroots did.
