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.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small head. Nose gives resin pine. Surprising lack of sweetness long lasting bitterness. An interesting take on the style

Fairly earthy, piney hops in the aroma. Nice roasty bitterness in the taste. Hop flavour is not overpowering. Well balanced.
