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.

BMan1113VR (7916) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 10, 2010
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.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - AUG 9, 2010
12 oz bottle. Clear dark mahogany brown with a thick light tan head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is lots of citrus and floral hops with a bit of burnt caramel. The flavor is bitter citrus hops with some lightly sweet roasted malt and a touch of coffee. Medium body with average carbonation and a slightly chalky mouth feel. I like this one a lot, very drinkable and in a can, got to love that.

MrBunn (2729) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Can. Pours a darkish brown that lets quite a bit of light through the edges, giving it some striking red highlights. Head is tan and is a pretty decent froth that is clinging madly to the side of the glass. Aromas are fairly weak. A bit of maltiness and a little bit of a citrus hops presence is about all I can pick up. Flavor is a little more robust, but the hops presence takes its sweet time in showing up to the party... it does, finally, but long after the dark malt presence has faded. Only then does a herbal and resiny aftertaste start to form that lingers nicely for quite a while.

Maltajo (329) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2010
On tap at the Gingerman NYC! Fantastic black pour with a creamy tan head! Roasted barley and some great citrus bring it all together for a fine finish!

Drake (11605) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2010
12 ounce can from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a dark brown color, pitch black in the glass. Large frothy tan head that sticks around a while. Good lacing. Aroma of citrus and earthy hop notes with a faint bit of roastiness. The taste is dark malts with a bit of a tobacco note and bitter citrus hops. Medium bodied. Tasty.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2010
12oz can, fairly fresh, from grape & gourmet. pours black with a bit of light coming through around the edges and topped by a creamy, light tan head and nice lacing. aroma is very nice with sweet, piney, resinous hops, light grapefruit, and orange peel backed by grainy, roasted malts, cocoa powder, and a hint of coffee. flavor is delicious and honestly, more roasted than hoppy but offers a unique twist on the black ipa with big roasted malts, coffee, burnt toast, and chocolate up front with light citrus, pine, and bitter hops on the back end and finishing bitter and toasty. palate is medium bodied with high carbonation and creamy on the tongue. overall, a very tasty black ipa/cda.

Black IPA’s are one of my new favorite emerging styles. I had this on tap at the reef and love the high hop flavor that is balanced by the black malt and finishing hops. Exceptional beer.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Pours deep brown with tan head, arom ais some nice citrusy hops at the forefront with a bit of roast. The taste is definitely more of an IPA than a brown ale, has some nice citrus and pine up front leading into some roast that finishes bitter. Nice brew, wish it was a bit more focused on the roast, but nice overall.
