A pinch of black malt and a splash of roasted barley break this IPA apart from tradition, Cascadian Dark. Join the shady revolution.

Transfer from BA review on 9-6-12- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – Served a deep drown beer with a one-half finger white head. The head had great retention, but eventually faded to give decent lacing.. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of hop. A nice dose of citrus and pine are mixed with aromas of roasted malt and a light chocolate smell. Taste – The taste begins with a nice blend of roast and hop. A chocolate and roasted malt flavor mixed with some citrus and pine notes. As the flavor advances to the middle the roasted flavors get stronger while the hop remains the same. At the same time a light char flavor comes to the tongue as well, complementing the roasted flavors well. The roast and char flavors, at the end, begin to lose ground to some sweeter flavors as well as more hop. Some semi-sweet coffee and citrus grapefruit hop flavor combine with the rest to nicely round out the taste. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side with the carbonation the same. Overall – A pretty decent dark IPA. It has a good hop and roast flavors. While not the best out there, as it’s transitions and complementation of the roast, sweet and hop flavors are not always smooth, it does have decent individual flavors..

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - JUL 21, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2015 Limpido color cola con spumoso cappello di schiuma beige. Aroma e gusto nocciolati, fruttati, tostati e luppolati; sentori dolciastri alternati a note di zucchero e malto abbrustolito. Corpo medio, effervescenza gentile, finale un po’ appiccicoso. Discreta.

Bottle courtesy of Tino. Cheers pal. Pours Broon with a Tan head. Roasted malt backed up by citrus and pine. Dry and bitter to finish. Very nice. I’m still not 100% sold on BIPA as a style though...

TET (2635) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
A colablack beer with a medium and beige head. The aroma is roasted, wet wood, some fruits. Taste has roastiness, coffee, wood, only hint of herbal hops. Simple. Medium bodied, nice and smooth to drink. The bitterness is disappered somewhere or then this should be like this. Roasted elements are dominating.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Bottled. Deep rubyish black colour with a small beigeish brown head. Aroma is fruity, floral, mild toasted and coffeeish notes to it. Flavour is very similar, but with the fruitiness being the most evident note. Pleasant and quite tasty black IPA for once.

Simonsen (1117) - NORWAY - JUL 12, 2014
Flaske medbrakt av esp0r. Svart farge, som navnet tilsier. Beige skumtopp. Medium karbonert. Smaker kaffe,karamell, mørkbrent malt, furunål og noter av mørke bær. Ganske god, men flasken er desverre snart ett år gammel og har nok mistet mye aroma
