To Øl were high school students of Mikkeller and started brewing using the schools kitchen after bemoaning the state of Danish beer "most Danish breweries [scramble] to describe how their beers had been brewed for over 100 if a stale lager ever has become less nauseous by the fact that it has been brewed for over 100 years!"  They brew outstanding, uncompromising, contemporary beer and are mighty proud to be gypsy brewers.

Chocolate, liquorice and brown sugar notes contrast with pine and citrus hops in this American-inspired black IPA. Brewed with lactose for a creamy body and slight sweet tang, Black Maria is fresh and sharp while maintaining a robust roasty character.

Brewery Info

After several years of brewing beer in their kitchen and selling it to their friends, Tore Gynther and Tobias Emil Jensen founded To Øl in 2010. Their first beer was a collaboration with Mikkeller and, with such an auspicious start, they were always going to do well.

Coupled with their relentless pursuit of big flavours and perfectly balanced beers, they have garnered a well-deserved reputation for innovation and technical skill. Using ingredients not always associated with beer and, with a particular penchant for using fruit wherever they can, you’re always guaranteed a unique, flavourful and boundary-pushing drinking experience.

My first example of the black IPA trend and it has never been bettered since!
Definitely worth a try.
Review by
Dark beige creamy head stayed well on a near black, thick, still body.
Nutty, iron aroma with chocolate & faint hints of citrus.
Medium body. Creamy, sharp, tingly - this has a bit of a bite to it.
To the fore there's malt, chocolate, nutty & cream. This quickly dissipates over the tongue to very tangy back of bitter citrus, grapefruit, pine & an overall general tangy aft.
Complex tasting beer.
