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.

Christian (13807) - Odense, - MAY 11, 2013
Black with small tan head. Aroma of citrus and licorice. Sweetish roasted licorice flavour with citrus hops and a good bitterness. The licorice-citrus combo is to the point for the "style"

Uma black ipa bem tradicional, creme sem muita densidade, aroma frutado, de ameixa, sabor complexo, tostado, com retrogosto bem amargo. Muito bem balanceada.

MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2017
Bottle @ Floris’ Leaving Party. Pours a pitch black beer with a small brownish head on top. Aroma of roast and coffee with a faint hint of citrussy hops. Flavor is metallic, highly carbonated and little left of the hops or roasty touches. A faint roasty character can be noted in the finish, alongside some chocolate. Decent at best.

SebBrews (198) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - MAY 24, 2017
Jet black with thick, dense tan head that is medium-lived. Nose is roasted malts, walnuts, moist grass and a bit hoppy in the background. Aroma starts mildly bitter, with predominant notes of roasted malts and coffee grounds and ends hoppy and bready. Alcohol is very well hidden. Very creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied, low carbonation. Very good.

Echon (535) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 4, 2017
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 (1960) - 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).

3.1
simontomlinson (564) - 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.

kaser (6367) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Black 22oz pour. Tan head. Malty and bitter, chocolate and maybe cofffee. Hoppy. Pretty good
