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.

0,33 l bottle.
This beer rocks! Huuuge beige head tha does not allow me to pour out all the beer...really deep brown-black appearance with this beige foam-sculpture on the surface. I have to be calm, calm and calm! Fine fruity aroma allure me but i have to be calm....Lets pour out the whole bottle with all the sediment. After a succesfull action the fruity aroma opens. Blackcurrant, some wild-berries are mixed with pine and resin, molasses and cocoa, dark chocolate. After a slip the taste bomb explodes. Full, fine and creamy mouthfeel brings a balanced palate with a fine carbonation. Fruits with dark chocolate, berries with molasses, vanilla with tobacco, ash and smoke with pine and resin - that rules the aftertaste. Awesome, good, fine. Yumm, give me some more bottles, please!

TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours nearly black, with brown edges, and a brown head. Spicy, roasted aroma, with quite a lot of resiny hop notes, grapefruit, spruce, caramel, chocolate, coffee. Off-dry, medium to full bodied, high bitterness, creamy CO2. Hoppy, roasted taste, spruce, grapefruit, ashes, grass, chocolate, coffee, tobacco. This one balances somewhere between a proper Black IPA and a hoppy porter. You could wish for a little more punch in the hoppiness, but the balance as it is now makes it all the more drinkable.

En svart l med ett ljusbrunt skum. Doftar kaffe och choklad frn den rostade malten och citrus och tallbarr frn humle. Samma gr igen i smaken, en torr, trevlig munknsla.

Appearance: A dark dark brown brew, a tan high head with good lacing
Taste: Black rye bread, bramble marmalade, dried figs, coffee and soy sauce.
Palate: Low carbonation, sticky, big body and a coarse dry finish.

LoFi (1714) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle. Very dark with dark beige to light brown head. Aroma: creamy, roasted, light oats, something else I cant place. Taste: lots of licorice, dark wine gums, dark chocolate, some burnt sugar, some kind of tropical fruit, but overall quite light in the hoppiness, medium bitter with pine in the finish. Medium-bodied, smooth. A much debated beer. I would have hoped for a hoppier beer for sure. But if we disregard the style and whether it is a bad example or not, this one tastes nice.

Ngon berttade fr mig att det hr var en hgst medioker l men jag hller inte med. Smaken r visserligen vldigt spretig och obalanserad men hag gillar den nd. Slutsats: ingen finess men en bra kftsmll nd.
