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.

Marsiblursi (2989) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2012
(Bottle) Pours near black with a creamy brown head. The aroma holds purple jellybeans, black wine gums, blueberry/blackberry jam, apricot candy, grapefruit/lime juice, resin, spicy cedar wood, pine, herbs, coffee, dark bread, asphalt, soft liquorice and milk chocolate. Interesting and somewhat unique nose. The flavour is light sweet to dry, medium to heavily bitter and light to medium acidic with notes of grapefruits, dark juicy berries, grass, pine, chocolate, liquorice, asphalt, coffee and dark bread. The mouthfeel is clean and round with some astringents. Soft, almost creamy carbonation. Fairly concentrated finish. Medium bodied

Black color. Light grey, quickly disappearing head. A bit poor aroma with malty influences. Deep palate with chocolate, cofee and liqurace tones. Good beer overall.

Borresteijn (4543) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2012
33cl Bottle at Lost Property. Great to see Swedish beers here, especially for a Dutch price (€3,50). Black colour, rocky light beige head. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate, cocoa, moccha, a bit milky. Flavour is a lot less sweet than expected, lots of hard roasted malts, light ashy, firm grapefruit bitterness, light bitter chocolate, cold coffee, good hoppy bitter finish. Medium bodied, soft mouthfeel. Good beer, more a hoppy porter than a Black IPA imo.
