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.

Christian (12623) - Odense, - MAY 11, 2013
Black with small tan head. Aroma of citrus and licorice. Sweetish roasted licorice flavour with citrus hops and a good bitterness. The licorice-citrus combo is to the point for the "style"

Szopeen (281) - Toruñ, POLAND - JUL 1, 2016
Czarne z rubinowymi refleksami, bujna, beżowa piana, pięknie zdobiąca szkło. Aromat nie powala, ale są owoce tropikalne, owoce leśne, trochę kawy. W smaku wyczuwalna paloność, kawa, goryczka w miarę wysoka, ale trochę za długa.

Bottle. Almost black. After eight mint, sweet and sour. Sweeties in the intense aroma. Roasty Malty sweet flavor with licorice. Bretty notes, grassy hops and an upcoming pleasant sourness. Suboptimal balance but a Nice beer.
