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.

rosenbergh (9144) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2013
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.

JorisPPattyn (8793) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2013
Towering, beige, dense irregular head, very slowly collapsing over practically black beer. Chocolate, dry hopbales, and also quite distinctly thyme and a hint at rosemary. Bitter-roasted-burnt, if nowhere ’over the top’ - very pleasing. Black chocolate with roast - ashes. Suddenly a new flavour which is quite kafir lime(leaf) like. Well-bodied, if not really thick. Gristslickness, even a bit dusty. Surprising - in the good way! Many thanks to Stef!

olio (8197) - 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.

laiti (7742) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
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.

lusikka (7621) - 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.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2013
(Bottle) Black colour with huge, lasting, pale brown head. Malty, roasted, hoppy nose with notes of coffee, liquorice, dried fruit, soy sauce, black rye bread and citric hops. Malty, roasted, hoppy taste with dark chocolate, liquorice, cocoa, soy sauce, black rye bread, citrus peel and a generous citric bitterness. Quite powerful and very tasty black IPA. Very nice.

larsga (6893) - 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.)

gyllenbock (6285) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Almost black with a large tan head. Aroma and taste of rosted malt, ash, licorice and some coffee. Also some light notes of "milk". Not much hops in this one. It reminded a lot of a porter, Black IPA? No, no!

larsniclas (6243) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2012

ekstedt (6157) - 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..
