COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

oh6gdx (25552) - 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.

alteregoo (1070) - POLAND - AUG 30, 2016
Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się piękna, drobna, bardzo obfita, beżowa piana z ładnym lejsingiem. Barwa ciemno brązowa, nieprzejrzysta. Aromat głwnie żywiczny, leśny z delikatnymi cytrusami, kawą i czekoladą w tle. W smaku płsłodkie, tu rwnież sporo iglakw, ale także czekolada, kakao, kawa na rwni z chmielami. Goryczka średnia do wysokiej, żywiczno palona. Wysycenie średnie, dość pełne, lekko szorstkie i wyklejające w odbiorze. Alkohol lekko rozgrzewa w przełyku.
Klasa Black IPA, wyraźnie nachmielone, z wysoką goryczką, ale i z konkretną bazą słodową, palonością i czekoladą, podkreśloną laktozą i płatkami owsianymi. W niczym nie ustępuje Black Malts & Body Salts.
