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.

jesperhammer (2892) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2012
12-DEC-2012, bottle @home, from Systembolaget, present from Erik. Very dark brown with huge fine "grained" head lacing the glass. Roast and hops aroma, more to the hoppy grassy side than the roasted. That is just opposite on the taste. Hard roasted, burnt malts dominate. Citric grassy hops on top of that. Quite creamy with soft carbonation. Lovely but a bit rough drink.

omhper (19376) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2012
Bottled. Black with rich, firm beige head. Aroma of citrus and pineapple with espresso behind. Mid sweet with near full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Concentrated flavours of tar, licorice and citrus. Potent warming finish with earthy licorice and long bitterness. A well made solid beer, exploring the borderline between two newly invented styles - imperial porter and black IPA.

greenclansman (797) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - NOV 19, 2012
Black black black coloro... Roaste malts and chocolate aromas with a hint of hops. Once you taste it, you get a small bite from the hope...then a big sweetness from the malts, with a dry bitter aftertaste from the roasted malts. Not what I have in mind for a black ipa, but a very nice and complexed beer. Thanks to yiannos.

hackobock (1373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a dirty one inch head. The aroma consists mainly of roasted malts, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, ash, raisins and some faint hoppy fruitiness, not near as one expects from an IPA. Taste is sweet balanced by a bitterness both from the hops and roasted malts.

Ktwse (1996) - SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2012
Pours basically black with one thumb of light tan frothy head. Aroma a good balance between roasted malt / coffee and citrus hops. Slightly floral, but funnily, given the description, I can’t pick out any chocolate. Taste is more towards the chocolatey side with an initial sweetness that is quickly balanced up by a thick, dark chocolate bitterness. It’s not wildly bitter, however, more gentle, and the finish is slight but lingering. Body is light yet creamy. A decent attempt at this very hard style.
