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 - Black with a tan head. Liquorice, plain chocolate, pine and soapy hops in the aroma. Roasted and hoppy taste with notes of bitter plain chocolate, liquorice and soapy hops. More roasted than many beers of this type, but that’s not a criticism.

Cunningham (6060) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2013

Appearance: Black colour with a big creamy beige topp. Ok lacing.
Aroma: Frutiy, dark malt and slightly sour.
Palate: Medium to full body. Slightly sweet and a moderate bitterness.
Flavor: Nice complex flavor. Fruity and grape hoppy, with some roasted malt and chocolate.
Overall impression: Nice black IPA with a well hidden alcohol. Just felt it had a bit unpleasant and unbalanced sweetness
Location: Bottle from a trade with rlgk

Borresteijn (5662) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2012
33cl Bottle at Lost Property. Great to see Swedish beers here, especially for a Dutch price (€3,50). Black colour, rocky light beige head. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate, cocoa, moccha, a bit milky. Flavour is a lot less sweet than expected, lots of hard roasted malts, light ashy, firm grapefruit bitterness, light bitter chocolate, cold coffee, good hoppy bitter finish. Medium bodied, soft mouthfeel. Good beer, more a hoppy porter than a Black IPA imo.

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.

olsvammel (4727) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2012 Sample at a tasting. It poured a very dark brown liquid with a brown head. Fresh hoppy smell with lots of tropical fruits. Similar taste but it’s paired up with a roasted bitterness and some dark malts. Nice BIPA. Edit: Tried this again (batch 381) and it lacked hop aroma quite allot. Lowered the score a bit to something inbetween the first and the second tasting.
