COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Økologisk India Dark Ale er brygget på bygmalt og flere aromatiske humletyper, som giver en frisk duft af humle og citrus. Engelsk chokolademalt runder øllet blødt af, og den mørke farve kommer fra de ristede malte af hvede og byg. Økologisk India Dark Ale har et flot og cremet skum, og den store mængde new zealandsk humle giver en god, frisk bitterhed, der sættes i skak af maltens sødme. En øl med god fylde og krop.

Karaktertræk: Mørk, bitter og ristet, med skarphed. Farve: Mørk kastanje. Bitterhed: Høj 70 IBU. Sødme: Halvtør med nogen sødme, der holdes i skak af bitterheden. Indbrygningspct: 15,5° plato.

Grovlam (4205) - Copenhagen, - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle. Large thick foamy beige head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Mahogany cloudy color. Aroma of pineapple, fresh grassy, citrus and some oily notes as well. Over the palate came light roasted malt that mix well with the hoppy and light fruity notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Light to moderated sweet and bitter flavor that is very well balanced together. Light dry and hoppy finish that somewhat lingers on. Nice and very drinkable beer.

NosirIwont (2309) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2016 Bottle. 6.2%. Best before 20.07.16. Pours a dull, cloudy/milky dark brown, with a tan head. Decent lacing. Sweetish, hoppy and malty aroma. A bit roasted. Light fruity/berry note as it warms as well as a light chocolate note. Somewhat mild flavour; hoppy and malty as well, with a hint of plastic. Roasted and light chocolate notes as it warms. Mildly bitter hop finish. Note of alcohol. Lingering light coffee note and a hint of liquorice, followed by a light green apple note Overall okay, but a bit boring; it’s going through the motions, but only just that, and doesn’t really set itself apart. 12.06.16.

Moolesen (455) - NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2016
Bottle 50 cl. Black with a beige head. Aroma has hints of malt, caramel and some aroma hops. Taste of chocolate and malt which makes it rather sweet followed with subtle hops at the end. It is far from bitter, though. Medium length (chocolate)

Cunningham (6729) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2015
A coffee and dark malt dominated ale. Not very typical BIPA
Dark color with a fine beige head. Some lacing. Ok aroma intensity. Mostly coffee, chocolate and some hoppy notes. Medium + body and a bit soft carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Coffee, chocolate, licorice, mild hoppy and some fruity notes.
[Bottle from Vinmonopolet Web order in Norway]

LLaurin (276) - Motala, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2015
Dark is the keyword to this IPA. Chocolate nose and taste with a rich happy note from citrus and freshness. Quite unexpected considering the colour. This a really great "alternative" IPA with a touch of stout.

Arve_Christian (4697) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2015
ON bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order (BU). Black color, ok offwhite foam. Medium aroma intensity; malty, leather- very light hops. Medium body & complexity. OK bitterness, balances well. Enjoyable, but too subtle

visionthing (4670) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2015
50cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks! Pours very dark brown with a reddish hue with a beige head. Surprisingly mild roasty aroma with some coffee and chocolate, dark fruits, hints of wood, smoke and hops. Medium sweet and less flavourful than expected. Fair enough.

altonbrownd (5413) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle from Danish Deli. Dark brown body with toasty head. Nose is quite malty, herbal. Taste is malty, caramel, licorice, plummy. Pretty good. Leaves a trace.

First IDA, good mix between Brown ale and IPA. Would have liked a bit more hops to emphasise the IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mörk nästan svart, litet skum. Kallt kaffe och humle liten beska. Lite för mycket kolsyra blir lite stickigt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
