COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eclipse, our Belgo-Style Black IPA is an exquisite fusion of black, roasted chocolate malts, and a generous heap of hops. It’s bitterly aggressive with a roasty quality, fruity esters and a spice scent making this one superior brew.

natejgood (390) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a coffee head. Aroma of bananas, bread and grass. Flavor of bananas (interesting), coffee and roasty malts. No hops to speak of for an IPA. Not the flavor I expect from a black IPA, but not bad. Interesting beer that is worth a try.
