COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black Maria is an American inspired Black IPA. It is black as an stout and hoppy as an IPA. The beer has been brewed with a good amount of highly roasted Carafa Malts, but with a relatively low amount of caramel and chocolate malts. This way we get the burned bitter and delicate chocolate notes in the beers, that goes well with the bitter and fruity aromas of the hops. The lack of caramel and chocolate results in less residual sweetness that you normally pick up from an Stout. For the hops we wanted some hops that could stand up against the Carafa malts. Therefore we used a mix of Columbus, Centennial, Galaxy and Cascade for the hop profile.

Draught at KØ16. Good grassy hop aroma. Almost black colour, seems hazy. Good creamy tan head. The flavour is caramelly and fruity, grassy etc. from the hops. Seems to have a caramelly malt note as well. Mild hop bite in the finish.

Bottle at home. Aroma is fruity hops, tropical fruits, pine resin, citrus, dark roasted malt, hint of dark chocolate. Flavour is nicely roasty hoppy bitter. Body is medium. Quite nice, lots of fruity piney hops with a roast malt backbone.
