Black Maria is an American inspired Black IPA. It is black as an stout and hoppy as an IPA. The beer has been brewed with a good amount of highly roasted Carafa Malts, but with a relatively low amount of caramel and chocolate malts. This way we get the burned bitter and delicate chocolate notes in the beers, that goes well with the bitter and fruity aromas of the hops. The lack of caramel and chocolate results in less residual sweetness that you normally pick up from an Stout. For the hops we wanted some hops that could stand up against the Carafa malts. Therefore we used a mix of Columbus, Centennial, Galaxy and Cascade for the hop profile.

jedrol (24) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - JAN 7, 2017
Bottle Appearance: black, small head Aroma: mainly cough syrup, some dart notes and finally very weak aroma of hops in the background Taste: better then the aroma, however one would want much more. Some dark notes, resin, leaves very unpleasant aftertaste. It wasn’t something that I expected. Something went wrong but I don’t know whom to blame, the brewery or the shop for inappropriate storing of the beer.

Copid (90) - POLAND - JAN 6, 2017
W aromacie syrop na kaszel, ciemne słody i lekka nuta żywicy. W smaku przyjemnie gładkie, w miarę pijalne gdyby nie ten potworny syrop na kaszel. Szkoda, bo piwo miało jeszcze rok przydatnosci.

Maersk (211) - MOLDOVA - JAN 1, 2017
Very dark, almost pitch black, but still a bit brownish, thick beige head. Hoppy, floral, tropical fruit aroma. Quite straightforward bitter taste with roasted tones and long lasting bitter finish. Good, but a bit too simple

Grzesiek79 (4132) - Radom, POLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Swietne, czarujace czarne piwo, geste syropowate, ciemno brazowa piana trwala i spora. Zapach orzechow wloskich i trufli francuskich. Smak lekko slodkawy lukrecja gorzka czekolada, potem robi sie chmielnie i lekko zywicznie, wspaniala roznorodnosc na zakonczenie palone slody i wanilia, o dziwo w skladzie laktoza ale poza poczatkowa slodkoscia potem wogole jej nie czuc. Glownie dominuje czekolada i chmiele. Kapitalnie zlozone i tresciwe piwo, a do tego alkohol porzadnie ukryty.

oh6gdx (25723) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2016
Bottled. Black colour, mediumsized beigeish brown foamy head, which quite quickly settles into a small firm head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is liquorice, some mild roasted notes as well as some fruity and nectary notes. Flavour is big time fruity and floral with some slight alcohol, liquorice and a nice malty balance to it as well. Quite nicely balanced.
