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.

TheJestersBeer (2392) - 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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle, 33 cl. Unclear brown with a huge beige head. Fruity nose with grapefruit, light licorice, caramel and roasted malty notes. At first amazingly fruity and wellbalanced, but after a few sips I realise that this is actually a little too sweet for my palate. After a short while hops are descending and the finish becomes a little too sticky and malty.

LoFi (1710) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle. Very dark with dark beige to light brown head. Aroma: creamy, roasted, light oats, something else I can’t place. Taste: lots of licorice, dark wine gums, dark chocolate, some burnt sugar, some kind of tropical fruit, but overall quite light in the hoppiness, medium bitter with pine in the finish. Medium-bodied, smooth. A much debated beer. I would have hoped for a hoppier beer for sure. But if we disregard the style and whether it is a bad example or not, this one tastes nice.

gnoff (9594) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2012
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. BB 2013-04-30, sampled on October 4, 2012.
Very dark brown color, medium sized, dense, lasting light brown head. Hoppy, herbal, citrus, roasted, chocolate scent. Hoppy, bitter, a little bit sweet, not much balanced taste. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, though I feel it lacks some co2. Roasted and bitter aftertaste. High bitterness. Almost have a chili sensation to it too, right at the end of my throat when I swallow it.

larsga (7314) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2012
Medium brown head. Opaque black body goes deep dark red at edges. Dense fruity alcoholic roasty aroma with earthy chocolatey notes. Impressive harmony. Dry-sweet roasty earthy fruity taste with perfumy red berry chocolate notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish earthy gooseberry aftertaste with roasty chocolatey dusty fruity notes. Lovely. Amazingly harmonic and seductively smooth. A great beer. (0.33l bottle, Systembolaget, Nordstan, Göteborg.)

Bottle. Dark colour, almost black, with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Slightly sweet, bitter taste. Heavy, almost like a porter.
