Black Rocks is a Black IPA. It is very dark in colour, yet has many characteristics of an India Pale Ale. Late mash additions provide the colour without the harsher, roasted flavours of the dark malts. The beer has a blackcurrant aroma and flavours of liquorice and pithy grapefruit

minutemat (2908) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2014
330ml bottle from Beer Ritz. Has a lovely citrus aroma that hovers above the glass with a frosty freshness. Smooth, dark body with some lovely dark malts, a touch of grapefruit and a pinching bitterness on the finish, mellowing to a biscuity dryness. An exceptional beer.

TET (2255) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. A colablack beer with a medium, dense and beige head. The nose is balanced, dry roastiness, exotic fruits, citrusfruits, coffee and some chalk. Taste is strongly roasted, lots of grapefruity and sour bitterness, coffee. The end is dry and burned. Medium bodied, a good beer to drink. Medium bodied, nice to drink. Balance isn’t totally succesfully, lots of bitterness and roastiness. Good beer, anyway.

ChrisSc (457) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2013
25cl en pression. Lille. Appearance: very dark, black almost, very opaque. Frothy tan head with good retention. A lot if lacing. Aroma: hops, dark chocolate, tobacco, earthy leathery, dark fruits. Taste: dry, bitter finish, but balanced. Palate: full body, frothy texture, good long finish Overall, not my preferred style, but hard to deny that this is a well made beer. Good complexity and flavor. A great beer for those who appreciate hops and great texture.
