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.

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.

TheJestersBeer (2034) - 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.

Vignale (1990) - 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.

Ktwse (1872) - SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2012
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.

Tide (1670) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Black color, beige head. Roasty, bitter taste with citrus, coffee, hops, pine and alcohol. Roasty finish with coffee. Good black IPA.

LoFi (1551) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle. Very dark with dark beige to light brown head. Aroma: creamy, roasted, light oats, something else I can’t place. Taste: lots of licorice, dark wine gums, dark chocolate, some burnt sugar, some kind of tropical fruit, but overall quite light in the hoppiness, medium bitter with pine in the finish. Medium-bodied, smooth. A much debated beer. I would have hoped for a hoppier beer for sure. But if we disregard the style and whether it is a bad example or not, this one tastes nice.

Lilja (1543) - 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.
