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.

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!

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2013
It’s black with a creamy nougat head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, coffee, dark fruits, ashes. The sweet flavor is soft (lovely mouth feel) and yet pleasantly bitter with notes of roasted malt, licorice, fruity hops, dark fruit, dark chocolate, a touch of ashes, and the finish is slightly roasted, dry and bitter. Really lovely black IPA.

jesperhammer (2888) - 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. Very dark, almost black beer with a very nice lasting beige/brownish head. Hoppy aroma, chocolate, roasted, milky notes, cocoa powder, grass, metal notes, biscuits, floral notes. Hoppy flavor, metal, bitter chocolate, cocoa, floral, spice notes, citrus, pine needles, mango, orange peel, grapefruit notes, some ash. Bitter hop finish, pine, chocolate, roasted and with some floral notes. Clean and refreshing, a good example of a good beer style!

VsXsV (2260) - Linköping, 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!

Garlic_of_Doom (448) - 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!

Really good black IPA. Smells good. Good taste and long finish. Really pleased with this. Fairly dry in taste unfortunately.
