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.

12oz can from Brewforia
Appearance: Black with huge beige ice cream head with lots of sticky lacing

Seems very ’raw’, the favors just don’t mesh well.

On draft. mediocre black IPAs just end up tasting like bad stouts. This was thin and sour and barely drinkable.

12 ounce can from Brewforia. Pours a pure black color with a medium cream colored head. The aroma is roasted malts, chocolates, some metallic hops. A smooth roasted malt flavor,some chocolate. Not very hoppy, I’ve had many porters and stouts as hoppy as this- some citrus and metallic bite. A nice brew.

Pours suprisingly heady. Only a slight taste of grain, wish it had more. The hops taste of grass and earth. Its a solid beer worth trying.

can, in pint glass. (but I’ve had it on tap before) very dark brown, poured with a finger or so of good tan head. toasty, coffee backed by citrus, some caramel, coffee and cereal flavors. hints of smoke. good bitterness. light body, medium carbonation. Overall pretty tasty

jasonp (1573) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Pours an attractive black/clear dark brown with a rocky manilla head. Nice nose of PacNW citrusy hops piercing through the roasty dark malt. Flavor has notes of roastiness, caramel, bread then citrusy/grapefruity hops. The finish has a mix of resinous hops and a tinge of burnt but not in a bad way. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Not my favorite style, but a well-made version.

piscator34 (2362) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 26, 2010
Canned sample. Near black in colour with strong fizzy carbonation. Aromas are of cocoa powder, earthy + spicy hops, cherry, and a bit of caramel. Tasted a bit like a hopped up cherry coke, with some mild char character. Light bodied with medium bitterness. Seemed very odd to me.

the best black ipa out there right now, even better than stones sublimely self rightous. this is easily the best beer in a can ive ever had, even better than dales or old chub. the style cant be beat, combine the best of a west coast ipa and an extra stout, what could go wrong? what else could you want in a beer? i mean really? this is the greatest invention of mankind.
