COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
En Svart India Pale Ale. Fr alla som r bekanta med akronymen IPA kan prefixet Black i sammanhanget anses vara en infernalisk kontradiktion. Black IPA eller Cascadian Dark Ale, r en relativt ny ltyp som hrstammar frn omrdet runt Cascade Mountains i nordvstra USA. Det r ett svart l, bryggt som en IPA med massor av humle men med mrkare malt fr att f en touch av choklad och rostade toner. Vr version innehller malt frn Europa och humle frn Nya Vrlden. Tradition och innovation. Mattias Hammenlind, Bryggmstare.

laiti (8249) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 30.04.2013
Aroma is somewhat light with resin, some vanilla, porridge and hints of fruits. Flavour is rather rich on resin. Also licorice, hops and some ash. A black IPA high on hops, reminds me of Amager Double Black IPA but this one isnt that aggressive.

BBE 2013-04-30 - Pours dark brown, almost black with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops, grainy malts, hints of fruits and roastiness. Taste is grainy and malty with hints of roastiness and fruity hops. Finish is malty and grainy with some fruity hops. Okay, a bit unbalanced black IPA. Too grainy and malty.

Pours a pitch black colour with a creamy beige head. Aroma of rich roasted malts, English toffee and some herbal notes. Flavour of roasted malts, grassy hops with some floral notes, raisins, salty licorice, dark chocolate and some bready notes. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and a roasty, quite bitter finish with mild fruitiness. A good black IPA.

Pours dark red, almost black color with a small head. Aroma of ripe fruits, hops, caramel, malts and some pine needles. Flavor of hops, fruits, some ashy chocolate, mild caramel, licorice, dark toasted malts and some orange. Very nice aroma, but the taste is quite not equal. Nice though.

I en tid d djvulen r ett marknadsfringsknep snarare n en inkarnation av ondska r det ingen - inte ens en verbeskyddad korgosse - som fr skrmselhicka av att ett bryggeri som Sigtuna etiketterar en ny lsort som "Prince of darkness". P stt och vis r det ju logiskt ocks: syndigt gott vet alla vad det r, dygdigt gott fr en snarare att tnka p pappersaktigt brd - som enligt marknadsfringen blir mer aptitligt om man frestller sig att det r en dd mans kropp - och alkoholfritt vin utsptt med vad rstiden har att erbjuda i baciller och virus. Aldrig tidigare har det varit s ltt att bli frtappad. Fyll glaset i topp med mer av den hr utskta blasfemin!

FatPhil (15575) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 20, 2012
330ml bottle (Systembolaget, Stockholm)
Simple porter aroma - where is the ipa part of this?, some chocolate. Nice rich roasty body, again the chocolate comes over. Looks good, black, and with a tight sticky tan head. Ever so slight blue cheese retronasals, which is a bit offputting, but its so minor that its not a negative, definitely some lactic component. Finish has good burnt bitterness, and also bitter hops too. But those hops dont make a Black IPA surely? Where are the aromatic hops? Full and smooth in the mouth, soft carbonation. A little drying, but very drinkable, bitter stout.
