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.

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.

330ml bottle from Systembolaget

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.

olsvammel (6843) - rebro, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2012 Sample at a tasting. It poured a very dark brown liquid with a brown head. Fresh hoppy smell with lots of tropical fruits. Similar taste but its paired up with a roasted bitterness and some dark malts. Nice BIPA. Edit: Tried this again (batch 381) and it lacked hop aroma quite allot. Lowered the score a bit to something inbetween the first and the second tasting.

Borresteijn (6790) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2012
33cl Bottle at Lost Property. Great to see Swedish beers here, especially for a Dutch price (3,50). Black colour, rocky light beige head. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate, cocoa, moccha, a bit milky. Flavour is a lot less sweet than expected, lots of hard roasted malts, light ashy, firm grapefruit bitterness, light bitter chocolate, cold coffee, good hoppy bitter finish. Medium bodied, soft mouthfeel. Good beer, more a hoppy porter than a Black IPA imo.

ekstedt (6668) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Black with a large beige head. Intense dark chocolate and coffee aroma, some faint citric and piney hops, way too little for the style. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Semi dry with medium to high bitterness. A very nice foreign/imperial stout/porter..

330 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget. pours very dark reddish brown with a rather small frothy brownish beige head that quickly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is sweet, fruity and herbal with roasted malts, winegums, grapefruit juice, dark roast coffee, dark grapes, resin, alcohol, earthy red wine and salty liquorice. Taste is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, grapefruit rinds, orange peal, resinous wood, grape zest, moist soil, pine, salty liquorice and freshly cut grass. Mouthfeel is round, oily bitter and mediukm bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, unripe mango, grapefruit peal, dark roast coffee, green grapes, warming alcohol and resinous wood. Quite nice...
