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.

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!

Vignale (2409) - 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.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours black with a big tan head. Aroma like a hoppy IS. Taste of rosted malt, dark chcolate, oranges and some red currant.

TheJestersBeer (2200) - 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.

hackobock (2088) - 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.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Black color, beige head. Roasty, bitter taste with citrus, coffee, hops, pine and alcohol. Roasty finish with coffee. Good black IPA.

Lilja (2021) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2012
Väldigt gott. Frisk humle som möter en mörkare malt som ger kraftig smak av choklad. En trevlig beska med smak av kåda och tall som ligger kvar länge i gommen. Tycker dock det är svårt med benämningen Black IPA. Detta kunde lika väl vara en humlad porter, eller? Väldigt gott var det i alla fall.

mzaar (1944) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2013
Svart öl, smutsbeigt medelstort skum. Choklad och frukter i aromen, därtill en nötighet. Chokladen och fruktigheten återkommer i smaken, där den förra är dominerande. Det är ljuvligt gott. Detta tillsammans med en riktigt väl avvägd men ändå kraftig beska, gör att det inte går annat än att dela ut höga smakbetyg.
