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.

gnoff (9701) - Mlndal, 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.

JorisPPattyn (9669) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2013
Towering, beige, dense irregular head, very slowly collapsing over practically black beer. Chocolate, dry hopbales, and also quite distinctly thyme and a hint at rosemary. Bitter-roasted-burnt, if nowhere over the top - very pleasing. Black chocolate with roast - ashes. Suddenly a new flavour which is quite kafir lime(leaf) like. Well-bodied, if not really thick. Gristslickness, even a bit dusty. Surprising - in the good way! Many thanks to Stef!

olio (9654) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
33 cl bottle.
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.

gyllenbock (8243) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Almost black with a large tan head. Aroma and taste of rosted malt, ash, licorice and some coffee. Also some light notes of "milk". Not much hops in this one. It reminded a lot of a porter, Black IPA? No, no!

laiti (8171) - 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.

Svesse (8006) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2013
(Bottle) Black colour with huge, lasting, pale brown head. Malty, roasted, hoppy nose with notes of coffee, liquorice, dried fruit, soy sauce, black rye bread and citric hops. Malty, roasted, hoppy taste with dark chocolate, liquorice, cocoa, soy sauce, black rye bread, citrus peel and a generous citric bitterness. Quite powerful and very tasty black IPA. Very nice.

lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
330 ml bottle.
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.

larsga (7375) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2012
Medium brown head. Opaque black body goes deep dark red at edges. Dense fruity alcoholic roasty aroma with earthy chocolatey notes. Impressive harmony. Dry-sweet roasty earthy fruity taste with perfumy red berry chocolate notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish earthy gooseberry aftertaste with roasty chocolatey dusty fruity notes. Lovely. Amazingly harmonic and seductively smooth. A great beer. (0.33l bottle, Systembolaget, Nordstan, Gteborg.)

Appearance: Black colour with a big creamy beige topp. Ok lacing.

Flavor: Nice complex flavor. Fruity and grape hoppy, with some roasted malt and chocolate.
Overall impression: Nice black IPA with a well hidden alcohol. Just felt it had a bit unpleasant and unbalanced sweetness
Location: Bottle from a trade with rlgk

SaintMatty (7082) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2012
330ml Bottle - Black with a tan head. Liquorice, plain chocolate, pine and soapy hops in the aroma. Roasted and hoppy taste with notes of bitter plain chocolate, liquorice and soapy hops. More roasted than many beers of this type, but thats not a criticism.
