Svartediket Black IPA is a dark ale filled with hops giving it an aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. Roasted malts adds notes of coffee and bitter chocolate, and the dry ending gives the beer a complex, yet refreshing character. Editor’s note: Svartediket Black IPA was first brewed at Lervig Aktiebryggeri in February 2014. Moved to 7 Fjell when the brewery was up and running.

There are chocolate, coffee and that very nice dry butterness from the hops. Good bitterness as well as aromatic hops. Notes of spruce, herbs and some wooden oils. I dont know!. Very good beer!!!

Foffern (1291) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a deep reddish brown colour with a medium, creamy and beige head. Aroma of fruity hops, pine and grapefruit. The flavour is pretty fruity with lots of tropical fruits and grassy hops. Has a slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A nice and well-balanced IPA, but where is the roastedness?!

markschiedon (262) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2014
Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. In the aroma hop bitterness with a sweet tone. Fruity. The unclear black beer has a medium off-white head. A nice bitterness from the hop, but a bit smooth that makes it easier drinkable than lot of other Ipas. Medium high carbonated.

Bottle at home thanks to cunningham! Poured a dark Brown colour with a small off white head. Pines, big aroma of bitter tropical fruits, citrus, malts, caramel, ash, no real notice of chocolate and coffe. Nice fruity taste with a strong bitter aftertaste.

gyllenbock (5010) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2014
Sample at Bergen Ølfestival 2014. (my first one from this brewery) Almost black with a small head. A bit sweet with chocolate, light roasted malt and some notes of licorice, Not that much hops in this one. Still a drinkable and a descent beer.

Fin brun farge. Klar. Har en litt lys topp. Tørr foran. Har litt perlende kullsyre. Passelig bitter ettersmak. Litt kort. Kunne v vært mere fruktig. OK humlet

Off-white head. Aroma of nice citrus hops, some dark malty character there too.Taste starts choc malty with refreshing hops. Almost forgot about the black ipas for a while. Well balanced beer that i hope will come on the standard selection of vinmonopolet

My Bottom Line:
This lean and complex Black IPA shares an intricate blend of toasted malts and wooden, citrusy hops which leads to a perfectly harmonious coniferous bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A dollop of foam covers the shiny (when well lit) dark brown.
-There is a lot going on in this one, yet it never becomes tiring.
-The slender mouthfeel and prickly bubbling increases drinkability.
-These guys know what they are doing, it’s obvious.
-The fir-like bitterness is beautifully leveled with the rest of the brew’s medium intensity.
