Brewed with loads of Simcoe and Chinook. Blackbird: er mørk og mystisk. En svart IPA med såpesialmalt som gir ølet dets nesten svart farge. Smak og aroma er inspirert av en IPA. Avrundet med humle som gir furu og sitrustoner, samt god og framtredende bitterhet.

mcberko (8695) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2015
On tap at Ølhallen, pours black with a large brown head. Nose brings out lots of earthy hops, balanced by lightly roasted malt and chalk. Flavour is earthy and chalky, with lots of earthy hops, powdery dry cocoa, chalk and lightly roasted bready malt. Decently balanced and nice to sip in small amounts, but nothing overly great. Not bad.

Black with a brown head - Nice hop aroma - Some hints of raosted malt body with a good hop profile that is bitter, and then some dryness from hops and roasted malt - The finish has hop bitterness that goes into a long and dry finish - This was nice

Holmen1 (3286) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2015
Flaske fra polets nettbutikk, delt med Ovesen: nestsen ugjennomtrengellig brunsvart med fint lysebrunt skum. Aroma av franskbrent espresso med snev av furunål. Deilig tørr smak med god bitterhet preget av de mørke malter og den elegante humlebruken. Meget lett å helle innenfor snippen.

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 24.01.15. Very dark brown, almost black. Pale brown head and lacing. Aroma of American hops, grapefruit, pine and cigar box. Similar taste, with evident dark malt. Bitter grapefruit in aftertaste. A decent example of the style.
