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.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 30.04.2013
Aroma is somewhat light with resin, some vanilla, porridge and hints of fruits. Flavour is rather rich on resin. Also licorice, hops and some ash. A black IPA high on hops, reminds me of Amager Double Black IPA – but this one isn’t that aggressive.

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Clear very dark reddish brown with a big and lasting beige head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and moderate hoppy - citrus. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. 120113

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2013
Towering, beige, dense irregular head, very slowly collapsing over practically black beer. Chocolate, dry hopbales, and also quite distinctly thyme and a hint at rosemary. Bitter-roasted-burnt, if nowhere ’over the top’ - very pleasing. Black chocolate with roast - ashes. Suddenly a new flavour which is quite kafir lime(leaf) like. Well-bodied, if not really thick. Gristslickness, even a bit dusty. Surprising - in the good way! Many thanks to Stef!

Svesse (6295) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2013
(Bottle) Black colour with huge, lasting, pale brown head. Malty, roasted, hoppy nose with notes of coffee, liquorice, dried fruit, soy sauce, black rye bread and citric hops. Malty, roasted, hoppy taste with dark chocolate, liquorice, cocoa, soy sauce, black rye bread, citrus peel and a generous citric bitterness. Quite powerful and very tasty black IPA. Very nice.

NordicV (1223) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2012
En svart öl med ett ljusbrunt skum. Doftar kaffe och choklad från den rostade malten och citrus och tallbarr från humle. Samma går igen i smaken, en torr, trevlig munkänsla.

330ml Bottle - Black with a tan head. Liquorice, plain chocolate, pine and soapy hops in the aroma. Roasted and hoppy taste with notes of bitter plain chocolate, liquorice and soapy hops. More roasted than many beers of this type, but that’s not a criticism.
