One of the great surprises of Borefts. 3,5% ABV (the booklet of Borefts stated 4,5%), but enough aroma to be identified as a Black IPA if you don’t know this beer. I really enjoyed it.

330ml bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a dark brown color forming a medium and creamy tan head with good retention and lots of thin lacings formed and left in the glass. Aroma is mainly made of roasted malts, coffee, grassy and piny hops. Taste is mainly roasted, grassy and piny. Light body and good medium carbonation. Roasted and grassy aftertaste. Good and persistent bitterness. Nice black IPA. Just another great Salève brew.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2015
On tap at Haand Festival. An almost clear, brown beer topped by a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma has oranges, some pine cones and cocoa, coffee and roasted malts. It’s dry and medium to thin bodied with a nice carbonation level. The flavor has a lovely blend of roasted malts and hops, leading to a lasting finish where the roasted malts and hops blend nicely. Some oranges, pine cones and cocoa too. Definitely a well brewed session BIPA. 140524

Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, tropical fruits, some pine, hint of coffee, hops. Flavour is light sweet with a bitter finish. Body is a bit thin, however this is definitely a pleasant Black IPA. Remarkable, what they accomplished with the low ABV.

Flaska från La Cave a Bulles, Paris. Närmast helt svart öl med ett rikligt smutsvitt skum. Det räcker nästan att bara få dofta på ölen, med kaffe, rostad malt, en lätt rökighet och en fruktig humle. Det är av förklarliga skäl (3,5%) tämligen tunt. Jag tänker att vilken fantastisk öl detta hade varit med ytterligare några procent. Jag tänker också att det är rätt trevligt att kunna få sig en BIPA som inte är alltför alkoholig; ibland vill man ju bara ha en god öl utan att det ska susa i huvudet. Smakinslag av grapefrukt, kaffe, mörk choklad och rostad malt. Bra beska. Högst njutbar.
