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.

jesperhammer (2646) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2012
12-DEC-2012, bottle @home, from Systembolaget, present from Erik. Very dark brown with huge fine "grained" head lacing the glass. Roast and hops aroma, more to the hoppy grassy side than the roasted. That is just opposite on the taste. Hard roasted, burnt malts dominate. Citric grassy hops on top of that. Quite creamy with soft carbonation. Lovely but a bit rough drink.

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

0,33 l bottle.
This beer rocks! Huuuge beige head tha does not allow me to pour out all the beer...really deep brown-black appearance with this beige foam-sculpture on the surface. I have to be calm, calm and calm! Fine fruity aroma allure me but i have to be calm....Let’s pour out the whole bottle with all the sediment. After a succesfull action the fruity aroma opens. Blackcurrant, some wild-berries are mixed with pine and resin, molasses and cocoa, dark chocolate. After a slip the taste bomb explodes. Full, fine and creamy mouthfeel brings a balanced palate with a fine carbonation. Fruits with dark chocolate, berries with molasses, vanilla with tobacco, ash and smoke with pine and resin - that rules the aftertaste. Awesome, good, fine. Yumm, give me some more bottles, please!

_angst_ (2370) - 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...

SirLimpsalot (1955) - SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2012
@ 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

TheJestersBeer (1932) - 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.
