COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Black IPA fuses speciality malts with a tropical punch bowl of new world hops to deliver a contradictory yet cultured concoction. A classically ‘pale’ aroma and quenchingly fruity palate belies a broodingly dark and deceptive appearance. Can a beer be both ‘black and pale’? Time to consult the Magic 8 Ball.

A dark ipa? An oxymoron if ever there was one. A dark pitch black beer with a golden brown head. Feint fruity aroma and a deep hoppy flavour. A roasted coffee aftertaste from the dark malts makes this a really mind bogglingly interesting drink. --- a mobile beer rating

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2012
On tap at Kick. It pours a beautiful light tan, finger-thick head over a more or less black body. Nice lacings. The aroma is quite roasted, with chocolate, resins, clementine and coffee. It’s rather bitter in the mouth, dry and full-bodied, with a pleasant level of carbonation. Dark chocolate, cold coffee and a nice hoppy impact, although not as evident as in the aroma. Lasting finish. A tasteful and pleasant beer, I could easily finish a few of these. 121116
