I'm not familiar with Otter Creek's version, but a black IPA should not be a hoppy porter. It should be dry and crisp like an IPA, not sweet and malty like a porter. At least in my opinion.

My recipe will not give you as much dark malt flavor as a porter. It is intended to be black in color with a definitely detectable and yummy roast flavor, but one that doesn't dominate the beer.

Interesting. The otter creek had a strong hop welcome with a charred coffee malty finish. I really liked the combination.

I'm pondering it's just our differences in palate. I'm gonna have to give yours a try and find out. I really fell in love with OC's BIPA and I want to brew one.

I have a black IPA from a similar recipe just about gone in the keg now and I'm going to work with it again. Like others, I think I will increase my dry hop time to get a bit more aroma.

10 lbs 2 row
2 lbs Crystal 45
1 lb Carafa I
1/2 lb roasted barley
1 oz Columbus 90 min
1/2 oz Centennial 20 min
1 oz cascade 20 min
1/2 oz cascade 10 min
1 oz cascade dry hop 7 days.....going to bump this up to 10

I really like it .... I got turned on to black IPA from Back In Black IPA from 21st Ammendment Brew

Drinking this at around 4 weeks in bottle now. The description is right on: roasty but not malty. Flavor balance is really spot-on: roastiness does not overpower hops, just complements. I only dry-hopped one ounce, am now wishing I'd been man enough for 2 (last experience with dry hops was messy and dispiriting). I pitched rehydrated S-05 and am very happy with the outcome. It's great not having to make a starter.

I am looking to make a Black IPA and I'm looking at every recipe I can on here. Hate to revive an old thread, but hopefully I can get a response, as the recipe is still very present.

The original post said the recipe should "have enough dark malt flavor to justify their color (not using only Carafa III)". That description is just what I'm looking for. Isn't Carafa III the same as Black Patent, which, if only using Carafa III, would be extremely roast? Does it make sense that the OP means Carafa Special III, which to my understanding is de-bittered? I've never used these ingredients before, so I'd love to have some clarification.

This recipe has had lots of positive feedback ... what has everybody been using? Looking forward to some responses
