En Black IPA är exakt som namnet beskriver: en mörk India Pale Ale. Inspirationskällan är den moderna IPA som har en tydlig humlefruktig doft och en bestämd maltfyllig kropp i smakstrukturen. Black IPA å andra sidan har en tydlig mörk färg med små vinröda nyanser. Detta genom att vi har använt den tungt mörkrostade maltsorten Black Malt.

En tydligt humlefruktig doft med inslag av citrus som samsas med toner av mörkrostad malt.

En tydlig maltfyllig kropp och avvägd humlebeska kombinerat med en lång fruktig eftersmak blandat med mocka och choklad.

0.33l bottle. The head is a bit disappointing on this one. Starts off small and quickly fades away in to small shattered islands. It’s initially deep beige and almost a little foamy. The beer itself is more or less deep dark, and not too far off being blackish in color. On the nose there’s a fair amount of sweet licorice combined with salt, roasted malts, mild cold latte and it’s just a mild sweet little one this. It tastes quite good this. Mild, yet it has some distinctive flavors this. Feels thinner than I’d thought in the mouth, d it’s really gentle and soft in the carbonation. Mild licorice, chocolate wrapper, a soft roastiness and even hints of smoke. Decent but lacking the India pale ale part of the ale. 13.05.2015

33cl bottle @ Oak barrel, Vantaa. Pours black with a thick brown head. Hoppy, roasty aroma, molasses and old bread in aroma. Flavor has mild citrusy notes, roasted malt, sweetness and some metal. Decent bitterness but too sweet.

Good fruity aroma. The flavor is of berries, fruity and caramel. Pretty much bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper and front part of the mouth to a weak moment. For bitter for my taste. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

metalspice (690) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2015
Colafarget, nesten uten skum. Duft av kaffe, lakris og bitter frukt. Kaffe og grapefrukt i smaken som avsluttesmed en intens bitterhet. Tynn og vannaktig munnfølelse.

Erityisen hyvä ruokajuoma. Tätä voisi ostaa jos jostain saisi. Mukavasti potkua ja riittävän iso.

Rune (11352) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2015
330ml bottle nicely served in a tulip glass at Café Sånn. Clear mahogany coloured body under a low, tan-coloured head. Dotted spots on the glass. Roasted malty aroma mixed with leafy hops. Roasted malt driven taste of dark caramel and liquorice offset by dark fruity bitterness. Medium bodied. Smooth and rounded in the mouth. Nice (Tromsø 23.05.2015).
