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.

Black black so black with tan head. Taste at first is slightly watery then warms a bit and you start to get hops mixed with a toasty roast flavor. Medium bodied with lingering bitterness & hint of coffee. Not my favorite style but not a bad one by any means. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dliberto (205) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Poured from the can into a snifter. Pours a dark brown/black with a small white head. Aroma is mocha, chocolate, citrus, and roasted malts. The citrus in the beer compliments the overall taste of the malts very well. It is a balanced beer that is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slight sticky mouth feel that is slightly bitter in the finish. Very good beer

Canned from Grocery Outlet. Black in color with slight clarity. Roasted nose with a good amount of hop bitterness. A hint of sweetness as well. Roasted malt with a little bit of coffee. Nicely hoppy finish with some grapefruit peel.

Joel (114) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Pours black with high carbonation. Smells and tastes like an IPA, although less hoppy than most. Malty and sweet, but still well balanced with a lingering hops bitterness. Unique and pretty nice.

Dark, stouty and hoppy. Drank in a can from Dan's. Im not a hoppy guy and a half stout so its not an easy sell. And Im just not into it. Good song though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown color with creamy head. Itís a roasty example, with a good contribution of dark malts and resiny hops, very nice aggressive result.

"(Thoughtful face) Black IPA.... I would say itís the beer that instead of wanting to slap the devil out of it, you want to slap the Devil into you. BLACK IPA."- my esteemed roommate. Iím not sure if I agree with that or not because Iím not sure I know what it means. Itís delicious. Bitter, dry, has a bite but is still thirst quenching. Beautiful rich brown/black appearance with small white head. Quality brewery, quality beer.
