COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Back in Black is our newest year-round beer available now in six pack cans and on draft. Brewed like an American IPA but with the addition of rich, dark malts, this beer has all the flavor and hop character you expect with a smooth, mellow finish.

On tap. Dark brown in color with a medium off white head. Small citrus hop aroma. Taste is dark chocolate, a hint of soy sauce, some coffee, with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Needs more hop presence other than the bitterness in the finish. Pretty solid, but slightly lacking.

Deep taste with refreshing malty goodness makes this a new favorite of mine.

Cannette partagée avec Markwise. Couleur brune claire, mousse est fine et beige. Arôme est léger avec des traces de houblon laissant s’échapper qcq notes de citron. Le profile malt qui caractérise ce style est un peu trop en caché. Au palais, malt reste léger, fine couche d’amertume et de houblon donnant en bouche un aspect de citron et pamplemousse. Je trouve le tout un peu en retrait sans que aucuns des éléments ne se démarquent vraiment. Une bonne Black IPA qui reste un peu en deçà d’autres bières du même style que j’ai pu goûté auparavant.

Can. Pours black with foamy beige head. Nose has toasted nuts, mash mellow, grapefruit and orange citrus. Flavors are sweet and slight astringent malts, lots of orange citrus and grapefruit rind, sharp bitterness and spritzy feel. Okay.

Really well done black IPA. If I was blindfolded, I probably couldn’t tell you it was nearly opaque. Nice hop character in the nose and on the back of the palate. Malt balances out well but definitely not overpowering considering the color.

A nice black IPA. Not my style of choice, but a nice beer nonetheless. Aroma was that of a true IPA. Citrusy hops but with a chocolate background. Pour was a near black with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was a nice mix of deep roasted malts with a heavy grapefruity hop aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Decent beer.

Big thanks to Santa Adam for sending along this treat. I poured the can into a Sam Adams pint glass and was greeted with a good two finger worth of tan colored head on top of a nice brownish black colored bodied brew. The aroma of fresh hops filled my nostrils. I also got a good amount coffee and a light touch of chocolate. The flavors mimicked the nose it was hop forward with a little bit of roast coming thru as well. It had a medium feel to it with ample carbonation. I think I liked Sublimely Self-Righteous a little more than this one but I would drink it again

Nearly opaque black with a thin film of tan head. Aroma has sharp, acrid, grapey and vinous notes with an underlying treacle sweetness. Taste is the same with prominent sour grape, and spearmint bitterness. $10/6pk12oz
