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.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 30.04.2013
Aroma is somewhat light with resin, some vanilla, porridge and hints of fruits. Flavour is rather rich on resin. Also licorice, hops and some ash. A black IPA high on hops, reminds me of Amager Double Black IPA – but this one isn’t that aggressive.

330ml bottle from Systembolaget

BBE 2013-04-30 - Pours dark brown, almost black with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops, grainy malts, hints of fruits and roastiness. Taste is grainy and malty with hints of roastiness and fruity hops. Finish is malty and grainy with some fruity hops. Okay, a bit unbalanced black IPA. Too grainy and malty.

lusikka (5359) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
330 ml bottle.
Pours a pitch black colour with a creamy beige head. Aroma of rich roasted malts, English toffee and some herbal notes. Flavour of roasted malts, grassy hops with some floral notes, raisins, salty licorice, dark chocolate and some bready notes. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and a roasty, quite bitter finish with mild fruitiness. A good black IPA.

olio (5278) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
33 cl bottle.
Pours dark red, almost black color with a small head. Aroma of ripe fruits, hops, caramel, malts and some pine needles. Flavor of hops, fruits, some ashy chocolate, mild caramel, licorice, dark toasted malts and some orange. Very nice aroma, but the taste is quite not equal. Nice though.

I en tid då djävulen är ett marknadsföringsknep snarare än en inkarnation av ondska är det ingen - inte ens en överbeskyddad korgosse - som får skrämselhicka av att ett bryggeri som Sigtuna etiketterar en ny ölsort som "Prince of darkness". På sätt och vis är det ju logiskt också: syndigt gott vet alla vad det är, dygdigt gott får en snarare att tänka på pappersaktigt bröd - som enligt marknadsföringen blir mer aptitligt om man föreställer sig att det är en död mans kropp - och alkoholfritt vin utspätt med vad årstiden har att erbjuda i baciller och virus. Aldrig tidigare har det varit så lätt att bli förtappad. Fyll glaset i topp med mer av den här utsökta blasfemin!

330ml bottle (Systembolaget, Stockholm)
Simple porter aroma - where is the ’ipa’ part of this?, some chocolate. Nice rich roasty body, again the chocolate comes over. Looks good, black, and with a tight sticky tan head. Ever so slight blue cheese retronasals, which is a bit offputting, but it’s so minor that it’s not a negative, definitely some lactic component. Finish has good burnt bitterness, and also bitter hops too. But those hops don’t make a Black IPA surely? Where are the aromatic hops? Full and smooth in the mouth, soft carbonation. A little drying, but very drinkable, bitter stout.

TheJestersBeer (1932) - SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours nearly black, with brown edges, and a brown head. Spicy, roasted aroma, with quite a lot of resiny hop notes, grapefruit, spruce, caramel, chocolate, coffee. Off-dry, medium to full bodied, high bitterness, creamy CO2. Hoppy, roasted taste, spruce, grapefruit, ashes, grass, chocolate, coffee, tobacco. This one balances somewhere between a “proper” Black IPA and a hoppy porter. You could wish for a little more punch in the hoppiness, but the balance as it is now makes it all the more drinkable.
