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)

Svart IPA med stor humledoft. grape och tallessenser i massor. Len mjuk kropp. Det känns att det finns havre och råg i malten. Lite läderkänsla, men också mycket humle. Beskan är tydlig men klingar ganska snabbt. Elegant, välbanserad och förvånansvärt drickvänlig.

LoFi (1673) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2012
Bottle. Black with a brown tinge, cappuccino to light brown head. Aroma: hoppy and roasted: chocolate, citrus, müsli or oatmeal cookies. Taste: grapefruit, strawberries, milk chocolate, cocoa, wool, lakrisal, soy sauce, some burnt rubber. Dry resinous finish. Medium-bodied. Quite a successful BIPA.

2 finger mocca-colored head that sinks to 1/2 finger, black body. Nose: Oranges, spruce and licorice. Aroma: Licorice, chocolate, grapefruit, blood-oranges, resin, espresso, spruce, dark chocolate, licorice-root and pine. Long, dry, bitter ending. Harmonic.

Bottle from sb Strømstad enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown, black in glass, nice finger thick tanned head. Smells of citrus, zests, roasted malts and some tropical fruits. Taste is quite malty, good medium sweetness, also quite roasty, some coffee and citrus. Nice hoppy finish with citrus and resins. Good heavy bitterness. Medium to full bodied, average carbonation and quite thick feel, still not oily. Totally a very drinkable beer and a nice step up from the previous version of this ber

stefannilssons (1530) - SWEDEN - APR 12, 2012
Det här var en kraftig besvikelse, ölen inledde på ett mycket bra sätt med en underbar arom men smaken följer inte alls upp doften. Smaken är spretig med skarp humlebeska som matchas dåligt med maltigheten som även den är något påträngande. Slutsats: bra inledning men dålig avslutning.

larsniclas (5995) - Billdal, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2012
Bottled from Systembolagetz Black with a small, beige head. Loads of wet and grassy hops in the aroma along with notes of licorice. Salty licorice in the favour. Roasted with some toffee. Grassy hoppiness with a high late bitterness.

Linnet (1264) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2012
Fruity hops, dark malts, that’s it, feels one-dimensional, but the aroma is pleasant. Black colour, big creamy beige head, lots of lacing. F: lots of coffe, paired with an aggressive hop profile, heavy notes of licorice and a fruity, floral finish. Rough and very salty. M: almost completely flat. T: still not for me, but a Clear improvement compared to last year’s debacle.

It's like being smacked by Tyson but then being consoled by Sporty Spice aka starts off crap but ends up below average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mzaar (2011) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2012
Svart öl med medelstort cappucinofärgat skum. Arom av lakrits, kaffe och bär. Smak av desamma samt knäck. Skön oljighet i munnen. En god öl helt enkelt.

Aromatic hops aroma and taste with elements of roasted malt and some licorice. In the taste there is a wonderfully smooth and dry tone of oats. The aftertaste has a long dry bitterness. A very delicious and nice beer!
