COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
En Svart India Pale Ale. För alla som är bekanta med akronymen IPA kan prefixet Black i sammanhanget anses vara en infernalisk kontradiktion. Black IPA eller Cascadian Dark Ale, är en relativt ny öltyp som härstammar från området runt Cascade Mountains i nordvästra USA. Det är ett svart öl, bryggt som en IPA med massor av humle men med mörkare malt för att få en touch av choklad och rostade toner. Vår version innehåller malt från Europa och humle från Nya Världen. Tradition och innovation. Mattias Hammenlind, Bryggmästare.

Bottle from Systembolaget, december 31st 2012. Dark brown body, close to black, light brown head. Roasty and licorice aroma with hints of chocolate and citrus hops. taste of citrus, dark chocolate, coffee. Not very black ipa-ish for me, but still a good beer.

mzaar (1606) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2013
Svart öl, smutsbeigt medelstort skum. Choklad och frukter i aromen, därtill en nötighet. Chokladen och fruktigheten återkommer i smaken, där den förra är dominerande. Det är ljuvligt gott. Detta tillsammans med en riktigt väl avvägd men ändå kraftig beska, gör att det inte går annat än att dela ut höga smakbetyg.

rosenbergh (6789) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2013
330 ml bottle. 381. BB ??/05/2013. (Systembolaget) Östersund, Sweden.
Black colour with some red hue and hu-u-u-uge foamy tan head. Aroma is fantastic. Dark malt, mildly roasted, strong liquorice, bitterish hops and a tad chocolate in aroma. Enchanting aroma. Flavour is strong and delicious. There’s roasted malt, mild coffee roastiness, ash, grassy and piney hops, liquorice, bitterness and mild alcohol warmth. Excellent brew.
