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 (4228) - 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 from Systembolaget, december 31st 2012. Dark brown body, close to black, light brown head. Roasty and licorice aroma with hints of chocolate and citrus hops. taste of citrus, dark chocolate, coffee. Not very black ipa-ish for me, but still a good beer.

Pours basically black with one thumb of light tan frothy head. Aroma a good balance between roasted malt / coffee and citrus hops. Slightly floral, but funnily, given the description, I can’t pick out any chocolate. Taste is more towards the chocolatey side with an initial sweetness that is quickly balanced up by a thick, dark chocolate bitterness. It’s not wildly bitter, however, more gentle, and the finish is slight but lingering. Body is light yet creamy. A decent attempt at this very hard style.

VsXsV (3967) - Stockholm, 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!

@ 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

hackobock (3564) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a dirty one inch head. The aroma consists mainly of roasted malts, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, ash, raisins and some faint hoppy fruitiness, not near as one expects from an IPA. Taste is sweet balanced by a bitterness both from the hops and roasted malts.

Vignale (3374) - 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.
