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!

Middle part has also bitter roasted malts, coffee and bitter fruity hops. Finish is bitter roasty malty, slight fruity with some coffee.

fantti (687) - FINLAND - OCT 7, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin hyvin mustana vaahdon ollessa noin kolmen sormen paksuinen ja hyvin muhkea ja pilvinen. Hajussa on vahvimpana selkeä paahteisuus. Muita hajuja on suklaa ja multaisuus, lievä hedelmäisyyskin on joukossa. Mutta...hajua vaivaa leivä pilalla olemisen leima, tietty muovinen ja hivenen pilaantunut, joka monesti tulee hapettuneissa oluissa vastaan. Maussa on hieman samaa vikaa, hapettunut tuntuma on mukana, mutta vahvempana on onneksi paahteisuus, maitoisuus ja kahvisuus. Hiven tuhkaisuutta ja jopa palaneisuutta on joukossa. Suutuntuma on jopa yllättävänkin katkera, kun humaloinnin aromeja tai varsinaisia makuja ei ole ollenkaan. Turhan hyökkäävä omaan makuuni. Muuten ihan ok BIPA, mutta ei tämä aivan kunnossa ole. Viime aikoina osunut omalle kohdalle turhan paljon tällaisia oluita, jotka ovat vielä juotavia, mutta eivät täydessä tikissä.

Flaska, ebest från SB. Svart dryck med moccafärgat skum. Dofter av citrus, lakrits och kaffe. Mycket lakrits i smaken, dessutom: mörk choklad, grape och citron. Chokladtorr munkänsla med viss spritsighet.

330ml bottle (Konttori, Tampere) (7+:5:7+:4:14=3.8++)
Black, huge rocky tan head. Nice hoppy aroma, but clearly a dark roast too. Spicy, and even some coconut. Full palate. Full roast, burnt bitterness, ever-present grapefruity hops. Burntness just on the limit of aggressivenesss. Good hoppy dark stout.
