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

Pint can: Aroma is big hops up front with spicy grapefruit note to it. Pours a clear blackish/ amber with a very thick off white head that lingers. Taste has got a nice hop texture with the candied texture I don’t like in some hops. Some light malt texture with some caramel malt notes. Palate is medium to high carbonation with a lingering hop note in the aftertaste. Overall, Pretty good. Cheers!

16oz can poured into a pint glass. Opaque dark brown with a big airy head. Dark cocoa aroma, roasted malts, piney hops and faint vanilla notes. Dry roasty flavors, med-hi bitterness, dark chocolate, and resinous hops. Med-full body, long finish, could be a bit smoother, but overall not bad at all.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a black color with caramel highlights and a huge foamy brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was malty, toasty, malted milk and floral hops. The flavor was bitter, roasty and almost sour with cocoa, malt, anise, floral hops and that terrible old McDonalds coffee that always reminded me of rancid battery acid. Medium length bitter old school McDonalds coffee, anise and floral hops. Not good.

A delicious black IPA! Not as hoppy as some IPA’s, very smooth with a strong flavor. Highly recommended for IPA lovers.

Can Poured into a glass. Dark Brown appearance with a very light brown head that laces a bunch. Smells chocolaty and hoppy. Some coffee in there too. Taste is a little thin. Some light coffee, dark roasted malts, bitter hops. tastes pleasant but a bit bland.

umich03jm (2994) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2013
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.
