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.

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.

330 ml bottle. 381. BB ??/05/2013. (Systembolaget) Östersund, Sweden.
Black colour with some red hue and hu-u-u-uge foamy tan head. Aroma is fantastic. Dark malt, mildly roasted, strong liquorice, bitterish hops and a tad chocolate in aroma. Enchanting aroma. Flavour is strong and delicious. There’s roasted malt, mild coffee roastiness, ash, grassy and piney hops, liquorice, bitterness and mild alcohol warmth. Excellent brew.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2013
It’s black with a creamy nougat head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, coffee, dark fruits, ashes. The sweet flavor is soft (lovely mouth feel) and yet pleasantly bitter with notes of roasted malt, licorice, fruity hops, dark fruit, dark chocolate, a touch of ashes, and the finish is slightly roasted, dry and bitter. Really lovely black IPA.
