COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eight är vår version av Black IPA. Denna relativt nya amerikanska ölstil dök upp första gången redan 1988, men det är först de senaste två åren som den har ökat i popularitet. Vi har valt att göra vår Black IPA som en stout med massor av humle från Amerika, Australien och Nya Zeeland. I både doft och smak finns tydliga inslag av citrus och tropiska frukter och i smaken märks dessutom drag av svartpeppar och en lätt bränd chokladton i avslutningen.

Klassifikation: Mörk Indian Pale Ale.

Användning: Detta kraftiga smakrika öl har många användningsområden. Den är en utmärkt sällskapsdryck i goda vänners lag. Inte så kyld fungerar den mycket bra i kombination med choklad, chokladkaka eller kraftiga ostar. Lite mer kyld fungerar den bra till exempel med rökt renkött eller italienska korvar.

Innehåll: Fyra sorters malt: pilsnermalt, ljus karamellmalt, chokladvetemalt och carafall special-malt.
Fyra sorters humle: Hallertauer Northen Brewer, Columbus, Pacific Jade och Galaxy.

Alkoholhalt: 8 %

(Bottle). Big hops fragrance with notes of tropical fruits and sweet flowers. Nice and smooth taste that first is mostly hops and then gets a flavoring of lightly burnt coffee and roasted malt. Palatable and well balanced, really good!

stefannilssons (1458) - SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2012
Black ipa är ju en ytterst tacksam ölstil, det bästa från två världar helt enkelt. Och det här är en riktigt bra öl, smaken är spretig med inslag av citru, passionsfrukt och massor av rostade toner. Slutsats: en riktigt bra öl.

LoFi (1592) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Almost black with a dark beige head. Aroma: roasted, rubber, licorice, hoppy with pine and something else (wrote down only "...pine and"). Taste: bitter, salty, roasted, grapefruit, pine, berries, burnt rubber, black wine gums, a hint of milk chocolate. Medium bodied. Not bad, but not very well-balanced.

TheJestersBeer (2039) - SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a dark brown, with a beige head. Malty, slightly murky/earthy (fecal?) aroma, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, hops, yeast. Off-dry, medium to full body and bitterness, slightly low CO2. Malty, robust taste, hops are more evident on the palate, roasted, coffee, licorice, spruce, a light touch of wet paint. Too roasted for the style, lacks the up-front hop notes. (2012-09-26)

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2012
(Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 29 Sep 2012) Dark brown colour with lasting pale brown head. Roasted, hoppy nose with notes of roasted malt, pine needles, grapefruit, chocolate and a touch of tar. Roasted, hoppy taste with pine needles, grapefruit, ashes, dark bread, coffee and a solid piney bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Almost full body, quite dry. One of the better black IPA’s I’ve tried. Excellent.
