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

Draft at Slows Bar B Q. Pours near pitch black with a small foamy head that quickly fades. Aroma is light roasted coffee, chocolate, grapefruit, and grassy hops. Tastes decent, nice mix of coffee, chocolate and grapefruit hops. Kinda thin a little watery though. The flavors are not as fresh as they should be. Overall, an ok Black IPA.

philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - APR 11, 2013
On tap. Pours an opaque black with a dense foamy coffe colored head. Bright aroma of hops, coffee notes. Very full body, slight carbonation makes for broad & smooth feel. Wonderfully balanced initial salty mellows to sweet with a smooth finish. Really nice take on an IPA.
