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.

Garlic_of_Doom (394) - SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours almost black with a 2 finger brown frothy head which leaves some lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet, hoppy citrusy with exotic fruit yet earthy with roasted malts. Taste is a bit sweet at first but then has piny hoppiness, milk chocolate, well roasted coffee. Some alcohol shines through when the beer is a bit temperated. Medium bodied, smooth mouth feel. Finish is bitter and long lasting. A really nice Cascadian Dark Ale/Black IPA!

Dunbar72 (134) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a medium sized brown head. Pretty malty aroma, sweet, caramel, coffee. Malty to the taste, some hops, coffe and licorice. Very bitter finish, medium body. Needs more hops in the taste and lots more in the aroma. Could do with less bitter hops.

A bottle from systembolaget. Dark black color, rich toffee aroma with some chocolate notes. Little carbonation. Taste is full of dark malts, closer to porters. Nice bitter finish.

Black color. Light grey, quickly disappearing head. A bit poor aroma with malty influences. Deep palate with chocolate, cofee and liqurace tones. Good beer overall.
