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.

A new addition to the Atlanta beer scene. Much more a beer that can stand on its own then a hybrid of brown ale and IPA. The dominant experience is roasty malt with a bit of a caramel touch and a slight bittersweet aspect to it. The hop profile complements well with just a hint of orange citrus. Pours a dark brown translucent color. The malt profile is not so much nutty as it is toasted dark grains almost a little bit of burned bread but in a nice way. Pretty decently drinkable as well, not overpowering in the malt profile or with the sweetness so that you can have more than one in a sitting.

Black with a two finger head, aroma is dark malt and the faintest hint of citrus hop. Flavor is rich malt, a little roast, caramel, tiny coffee and bitter chocolate. The hops disappeared, finish is long and caramel coating the tongue. This would be a good stout but I missed the IPA parts.

Brown-black with red at the edges. Decent head, good lace. Whiff of pale malts and citrus hop. Slightly roasted too like caramel or spicy rye malt. Tastes like a stout or a porter. Has a roasted malt and a citrus finish. Dry finish. A dark IPA with a terrific bitter end result. Liking the dark IPA style.

alobar (2730) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Pours a black-stout color with no head. Aroma of hops and pine. Flavor is largely chocolate and roasted malts with some hops. Seems more of a Belgian stout than a black IPA, but a fine beer nonetheless.

Draft at the Dutch Ale House (my local) with dinner. Slate black with an off white head. Fluffy. Stoic and hoppy. Some pleasant half way thru chalkiness that blends the up front maltiness to the hoppy dry finish. I had two and feel great.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2010
12 oz can from Bier Stein. Poured black with an inch of tan foam that receded quickly and left sticky lacing. Aroma of black roasted malts, caramel and citrus fruits. Flavor was up front with the black malt, followed up by a solid hit of citrus and some caramel loitering in the background. Decent brew, but not quite as hard hitting as others I’ve had in this style.

Deep ruby-black color with tan head. Nice earthy dusty black malt aromas with mild pine, home grown weed. medium bodied. Nice but mild pine hop taste with earthy, dusty, minerally kelp, dark malt flavors. Mild honey and caramel sweetness to finish. good

Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Smells of citrus, some caramel, earthy. Tastes earthy and bitter with some roasty chocolate hints on the finish.

Can purchased from the brewpub. Pours with a deep brown body and a large tan head. Sick lace. Aroma of pine, baked goods (raspberry danish?), light citrus, aquavit, mocha, rye. Taste is roasty, a bit metallic, baked bread, bitter and some pine. Very husky. Lively bubbles, a bit chalky.
