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.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2009
On tap. Presented as a "Dark IPA". Clear dark brown with a warm orange hue and a beige head. Delicious aroma of burned caramel, a little nuts and aroma hops. Medium body, sweet notes of burned caramel, roasted malt while a distinct piney hopping sets in and leaves the finish rather hoppy. Really delicious. 100709

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
On tap at City, San Francisco. A dark brown beer topped by a small, light beige head. Slightly bonfire-like aroma, burnt, with some licorice. Some sweetness in the mouth, quite bitter too. Some burnt flavors, but not as much as in the aroma. Full body. A nice one, but too much on the burnt side I think. 130804
