COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
En Svart India Pale Ale. För alla som är bekanta med akronymen IPA kan prefixet Black i sammanhanget anses vara en infernalisk kontradiktion. Black IPA eller Cascadian Dark Ale, är en relativt ny öltyp som härstammar från området runt Cascade Mountains i nordvästra USA. Det är ett svart öl, bryggt som en IPA med massor av humle men med mörkare malt för att få en touch av choklad och rostade toner. Vår version innehåller malt från Europa och humle från Nya Världen. Tradition och innovation. Mattias Hammenlind, Bryggmästare.

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 it’s so minor that it’s not a negative, definitely some lactic component. Finish has good burnt bitterness, and also bitter hops too. But those hops don’t 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.

rosenbergh (11578) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2013
330 ml bottle. 381. BB ??/05/2013. (Systembolaget) Östersund, Sweden.
Black colour with some red hue and hu-u-u-uge foamy tan head. Aroma is fantastic. Dark malt, mildly roasted, strong liquorice, bitterish hops and a tad chocolate in aroma. Enchanting aroma. Flavour is strong and delicious. There’s roasted malt, mild coffee roastiness, ash, grassy and piney hops, liquorice, bitterness and mild alcohol warmth. Excellent brew.

gnoff (10711) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2012
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. BB 2013-04-30, sampled on October 4, 2012.
Very dark brown color, medium sized, dense, lasting light brown head. Hoppy, herbal, citrus, roasted, chocolate scent. Hoppy, bitter, a little bit sweet, not much balanced taste. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, though I feel it lacks some co2. Roasted and bitter aftertaste. High bitterness. Almost have a chili sensation to it too, right at the end of my throat when I swallow it.
