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.

Aroma: Dark fruits, red berries, coffee and dark chocolate. Some roasted grains and smoke.
Appearance: A dark dark brown brew, a tan high head with good lacing
Taste: Black rye bread, bramble marmalade, dried figs, coffee and soy sauce.
Palate: Low carbonation, sticky, big body and a coarse dry finish.
Overall: A very dark and rather harsh brew, not for the faint hearted.

olsvammel (5995) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2012 Sample at a tasting. It poured a very dark brown liquid with a brown head. Fresh hoppy smell with lots of tropical fruits. Similar taste but it’s paired up with a roasted bitterness and some dark malts. Nice BIPA. Edit: Tried this again (batch 381) and it lacked hop aroma quite allot. Lowered the score a bit to something inbetween the first and the second tasting.

Pours dark red, almost black color with a small head. Aroma of ripe fruits, hops, caramel, malts and some pine needles. Flavor of hops, fruits, some ashy chocolate, mild caramel, licorice, dark toasted malts and some orange. Very nice aroma, but the taste is quite not equal. Nice though.
