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.

@ Basunen: Doften tycker jag är ganska diskret. Det samma är smaken med en viss humlebeska och små brända toner. Jag blir inte imponerad och jag tycker det inte händer så mycket. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bottle from systembolaget. Dark black color, rich toffee aroma with some chocolate notes. Little carbonation. Taste is full of dark malts, closer to porters. Nice bitter finish.

ekstedt (5404) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Black with a large beige head. Intense dark chocolate and coffee aroma, some faint citric and piney hops, way too little for the style. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Semi dry with medium to high bitterness. A very nice foreign/imperial stout/porter..

Dunbar72 (134) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a medium sized brown head. Pretty malty aroma, sweet, caramel, coffee. Malty to the taste, some hops, coffe and licorice. Very bitter finish, medium body. Needs more hops in the taste and lots more in the aroma. Could do with less bitter hops.

Garlic_of_Doom (448) - SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours almost black with a 2 finger brown frothy head which leaves some lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet, hoppy citrusy with exotic fruit yet earthy with roasted malts. Taste is a bit sweet at first but then has piny hoppiness, milk chocolate, well roasted coffee. Some alcohol shines through when the beer is a bit temperated. Medium bodied, smooth mouth feel. Finish is bitter and long lasting. A really nice Cascadian Dark Ale/Black IPA!

Vignale (2033) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2012 Flaska från SB. Närmast svart, lågt skum. Stor rund humledoft med chokladtoner. Sammetslen munkänsla, runda kropp med mycket grapesmak och framförallt grapebeska, svarta vinbär, soja och en liten söt tobakstounch. Bra balans, fin smakbild och riktigt god. Det bästa från Sigtuna jag druckit på väldigt länge.

_angst_ (2726) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2012
330 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget. pours very dark reddish brown with a rather small frothy brownish beige head that quickly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is sweet, fruity and herbal with roasted malts, winegums, grapefruit juice, dark roast coffee, dark grapes, resin, alcohol, earthy red wine and salty liquorice. Taste is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, grapefruit rinds, orange peal, resinous wood, grape zest, moist soil, pine, salty liquorice and freshly cut grass. Mouthfeel is round, oily bitter and mediukm bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, unripe mango, grapefruit peal, dark roast coffee, green grapes, warming alcohol and resinous wood. Quite nice...

VsXsV (2246) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle. Very dark brown, almost black, opaque liquid with medium to big, fluffy mocca head. Aroma has a nice mix of both roasted notes and hops with notes of fresh coffee, flowery hops, tangerine, light ash, bit grass, bitter chocolate, licorice and biscuity malt. As said, nice balance. Taste is dry and medium bitter with nice notes of coffee, grass and citrus along with some light ash and pumpernickel. Medium to full bodied with nicely soft carbonation. Wow, great example of the style with good balance, great mouthfeel and a significant but in no way disturbing bitterness. I’m impresed!
