Inspired by the history of alchemy the Officina Alchemica of Birrificio Italiano created Nigredo, the blackest Blackbier using ROASTED HOPS to extract completely new flavors and aromas from the Hallertauer Mittelfrueh hops.
Nigredo is bottom fermented, hopped in the manner and quantity typical for a Dark IPA, but only German hops are used, including above all Hallertauer Mittelfrueh.
Due to the roasted hops, Nigredo gives off an intense and wonderful noble hop aroma.The roasting of the hops is a practice previously unknown in the world of brewing and was invented in the Alchemic Workshop in Limido Comasco, thanks to the continuous research and curiosity that drives Agostino of Birrificio Italiano.
Nigredo is the work of the alchemists to Black, the first stage of the alchemical process. The production of malt and beer have for centuries been intimately connected with alchemy. For that reason German brewers use two triangles to form a six pointed star as guild sign, which is actually an alchemical symbol. The first triangle represents the three major phases: Nigredo (germination and malting), Albedo (saccharification) and Rubredo (fermentation), the three major
transformations. The other triangle indicates the three elements,water, air (gas) and fire.
