COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA and Stout converge for a really great flavor combination to create a rich and robust black & tan. The assertive hoppy character of our Hoppin to Heaven IPA is perfectly complimented by the intense deep roasted flavor of our BORIS Oatmeal Imperial Stout. Two great tastes that taste even better together.

Very dark brown beer, light just passes through. Frothy caramel head. Light fresh palate. Fresh dark malt, a little lactose sweetness. Light chocolate and coffee. Minerally hops, not too bitter or fruity but a decent counterpoint to everything else. Finishes smooth with a little chocolate. Thought this would be bland but I was very pleasantly surprised. Fresh, well balanced and moorish.
