HaandBryggeriet Sundland Kreosot
Note: Close to or recently past best before date, but still tasting great.
Brewery: HaandBryggeriet (Norway)
Style: Black IPA
Format: 500ml Bottle
Haandbryggeriet Sundlandveien Creosote is a Black IPA, or India Black Ale, or Cascadian Black Ale or anything else that you want to call it. Either way, it is a dear child of many names, and a Black IPA is one of the most beloved children to show off.
But is this really a Black IPA? Is it right to put it in IPA bag? I mean no. To me this is more of a smoked porter than a Black IPA for the simple reason that it has too little of the bitter, fruity and "hoppy" aromas and flavours.
