COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Toxic Sludge is our version of the relatively new Black IPA style. Care should be taken to not spill this heavy ale, as the results could be disastrous, so please consume BP Toxic Sludge responsibly. Hopped at four stages of the brewing process, we combined a hoppy India Pale Ale with a richer, darker malt base for a full bodied beer that’s big on flavor. This limited release, specialty brew was crafted to benefit birds affected by BP’s 2010 Gulf oil spill. 100% of the proceeds go to Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research for their “Spreading Our Wings” campaign. Available only in draft and 22-ounce bottles – you can do more for the birds than drinking your share of Toxic Sludge, donate or buy a cool, limited edition BP Toxic Sludge “Save the Buffleheads” Tshirt: bptoxicsludge.com

Pours pitch black and smells like its name. Muddled boozy wet dog and burnt aroma. Taste follows with a lot going on, none of it which I like. Dirt and booze flavor, a little roast. Was disappointed with this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

66cl Bottle@ RBBSG Courtesy of Jeff. Dark brown coloured beer with a short off white head. Roasted alcohoic aroma with some clear hoppy hints. Full palate. Finish is hoppy (going to extreme hoppy) with a light roasted malty hint. Strong but nice.

Tad softer carb. medium body. Good stuff.

A dark beer lovers dream, this was a hoppy beer with a deep dark color. While there are hints of malt, this was to hoppy for my liking.

Draught, Abraxas. Reddish dark-brown with a thin head. The aroma is caramel and wood hop. Toasty, nutty with patent malt (I think) and lots of hop dryness. Coffee notes from that malt. Not bad but I could do with more hop brightness and more complexity.
