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)

Really dark brown colour with a tight, creamy head. Really sweet aroma of tropical fruit & hop. Some bitter burnt malts come through in the aroma too. Initial flavour is fresh, sweet and hoppy. Aftertaste gives a nice lingering bitterness as the hops and the roasted malts take effect.

Cunningham (7057) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2012
Black and subtle red colour with almost no head. Wonderful hoppy and fruity aroma. Well balanced and nice flavour with lots of hops, some licorice and leather and fruity! Lovely beer.

Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Dark reddish brown with medium beige head. Piney, citric and slightly perfumy hop aroma with notes of oranges and tangerines, and some roasted coffee notes. Medium bodied and smooth. Dry with medium to high bitterness. Very good Black IPA.

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.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2012
0.33 L bottle. Thanks Cunningham, for the treat! Near black with dark brown highlights. Tan big-bubbled head. Initial aroma of fruity US hops, followed by a clean and subtle whiff of toasted and light chocolate-scented dark malts. Amazing! Clean, light roasty and chocolatey malt body. Bold fruity bitterness. Well-bodied. Juicy mouthfeel. Lingering fruity-bitter ending. Nice all over, the best BIPA i’ve had so far.

Lilja (2839) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt, citrus, choklad, salmiak, grapefrukt, tall, bröd och rostade toner. En frisk och välbalanserd svart IPA. Fruktig, lagom sötma med tydlig beska med smak av grapefrukt och tall.

SamTheBarrel (777) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2014
330ml 2014 years vintage brown bottle, with a simplistic designed black and white label. Appearance is opaque brownish black with a large tan foamy head with good retention, that when reduced left some lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, rye bread and lemon peels. Flavours of grapefruit, rye bread, caramel, lemon peels and a hint of liquorice. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, oily texture and average carbonation. Overall a great Black IPA, beers brewed with rye suit me perfectly, I think the rye spiciness complements the hops nicely.

Bottle. Pitch black with a medium big dense beige head that lace nicely. Bitter herbs, licorice, spruce and grapefruit with some underlying chocolate and a hint of caramel sweetness on the nose. Kind of the same notes in the flavor with a more salmiak touch that gets balanced nicely by a light caramel sweetness with some chocolate in the aftertaste. Also some salty leather notes. Herby bitter aftertaste with some chocolate. Medium bodied with soft small tickling bubbles. nice, balanced and very drinkable!
