COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve been doing Double IPAs for years, then we did a Black IPA; Double Black IPA is the next logical step, right? Toasty malt backbone accentuated by a ton of piney hops.

jazz88 (2558) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Tap @ The Bistro’s 2010 10th Annual Double IPA Festival. Dark brown with a brown head. A rich malty flavor with a nice hop profile.

BlackHaddock (3905) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2013
10% ABV version at the brewery tap during ’Strong Beer Month’ on 5th Feb 2013. Black body with a deep tanned head on top. Roasted and toasted malts rule the flavours here: the nose and taste completely controlled by those slightly singed malts, dark chocolate being the dominate taste and smell. Hop bitterness however is just below the surface and comes out slowly towards the end of each sip. OK and different (to a Brit on holiday), not the best beer I had during a long and heavy session in the tap, but certainly not the worst either.

Draft. Medium beige head atop cola red-black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some roast, light bittersweet chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, roast, some caramel, light milk chocolate. Medium-full body, some stickiness, low carbonation.

Dark brown pour with a khaki head. Roasted malt, licorice, molasses, and cocoa aromas to start. Some toffee sweetness, citrus, floral, and herbal hops. The flavor is a bit too malty and sweet for my taste. Molasses and toffee, roast, licorice, and cocoa. Decent citrus peel, floral, and herbal hops. Mild pine flavor and bitterness.
