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.

Black. The aroma is mostly roasted malts. It begins with a roasted, malty and moderately sweet taste, with spicy hops and light citrus notes, and ends with heavy bitter hops and some ash. Full body, and prickly carbonation. Overall, a very nice black IPA. Like drinking a stout and an IPA at the same time.

beerplace (1463) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2017
330ml bottle from Brewery Creek with George and Ilya. Pours an almost black with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, hops, roasted onion (wtf?!). Taste is roasted malt, hoppy bitter (good that without onion).

simontomlinson (228) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Dark beige creamy head stayed well on a near black, thick, still body. Nutty, iron aroma with chocolate & faint hints of citrus. Medium body. Creamy, sharp, tingly - this has a bit of a bite to it. To the fore there’s malt, chocolate, nutty & cream. This quickly dissipates over the tongue to very tangy back of bitter citrus, grapefruit, pine & an overall general tangy aft. Complex tasting beer.

jedrol (59) - 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 (167) - 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 (258) - 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 (4227) - 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.
