COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oxymoron är en vidareutveckling av förra årets Black IPA Easter Edition. Som namnet säger är ölen en motsättning i sig själv, en mörk ljus öl. Humleprofilen motsvarar en IPA men med lätt kropp och mörk stoutaktig färg, fast utan de rostade tonerna. Oxymoron bryggs med Pilsner-, Pale-, Munich-, havre-, råg-, ljus karamell- och mörk karamellmalt. Humlesorterna är Amarillo, Cascade, Citra, Columbus, Crystal, Magnum och Simcoe. (Oxymoron is a development of last year’s Black IPA Easter Edition. As the name states the beer is a contradiction in itself, a dark light beer. The hop profile corresponds to an IPA albeit with a light body and a dark, stout-like colour, though without the roasted notes. Oxymoron is brewed with Pilsner, Pale, Munich, oat, rye, and light and dark caramel malts. The hop varieties are Amarillo, Cascade, Citra, Colombus, Crystal, Magnum and Simcoe)

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2012
Flaske 0,33l fra Systembolaget i Kiruna. Ultradyprød. Drukket hjemme 30 Apr 12. Nesten sort. Høyt lysebrunt bobleskum som fester seg litt til glasset. God aroma av sjokolade & lakris. Litt kaffe. Tørr bitter ettersmak. Etterlater en god kaffesmak som ender tørt. KI=5.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle. Stoutlike appearance. Almost black colour with a pale brown head. Roasted, hoppy, bitter, salty. Not very fruity. Notes of salmiak, coffee, citrus and alcohol. Bitter, dry finish. Almost more like a hoppy stout.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
33cl bottle courtesy of and shared with gnoff. BB 23/08/2012. Brune foncée, col épais moka. Arôme est malté grillé avec une pointe de houblon poivré. En bouche, malt grillé ressort bien, garde ce profile de houblons américains; entre citra et cascade avec un fini malté qui reste plus dominant que le houblon. Cela fonctionne pour moi, et encore une très bonne Black IPA qui vient de Suède.

Rune (8467) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2012
330ml bottle from Systembolaget Kiruna. Tan-coloured head, one-finger, that stays well over a near-black body. Fragile lacing. Ashy dry smell of dark fruits and coffee malts. Roasted dark malty flavour alongside red oranges. Fat malt-bitter finish. A good one (hotel room, Kiruna 28.04.2012).

gnoff (7975) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2012
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget, BB 12.08.23, sampled on May 5, 2012
Clear very dark brown to black color, big lasting tan head with white spots. Chocolate, citrus, hoppy scent. Hoppy, citrus, grape, bitter taste. Alcohol punch to the stomach, a bit warming. Medium mouthfeel, high bitterness. Chocolate and coffee aftertaste.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2012

slakemythirst (190) - - APR 24, 2012
Doftar blommor och blader och lite kaffe. Känns lite knepig...både vattnig och fyllig. Behaglig beska. Fullt godkänd brygd allt som allt.

Countbeer (4709) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2012
Bottle: Thanks to Viktor: Small light brown tan head on top of an (looks like clear) black colored beer with a brown shine. Smell candy sweets, hops, nettle, hint of coffee, sweet grains, dust, liquorice, light hint of oak, hint of smoke. Taste is a sweet grainy and coffee hop mix with a good bitterness, herbs/(green)grass, hint of toasted/roasted malts, light soapy and bitter light dry, citrus bitter and a light light hint of something light tar/coal/roast. Hoppy bitter chocolate coffe herby aftertaste. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller body and a light creamy texture. Nice bipa. Bit flat at first, but seems to grow with time.

IluvatarMilan (275) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown, nearly black body with small tan head. Clear aroma of moccha beans, some hops, coffee. Taste, at first, is a bit hidden and reluctant to reveal itself but very worthwile upon being released. Medium bodied. Aftertaste very subtle and nicely bitter in the aftertaste.

Intressant med en mörk ipa. Häller upp fint men där slutar det roliga. Väldigt besk (även för en ipa) och ingen trevlig eftersmak.
