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 (25063) - 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

Draught at Taphouse Grille, Seattle
Dark brown color with creamy head. It’s a roasty example, with a good contribution of dark malts and resiny hops, very nice aggressive result.

Tap at the Peculier Pub, NYC, with Ethan. Black pour with a nice head. Good resinous character, nice roasted malts. Sweet with cocoa notes. Medium to full in body with average carbonation. Great Black IPA finish, big roast and lots of resinous, piney hops. Awesome beer overall.
