This India Black Ale was created by Tony, the winner of a homebrew IBA competition a few months back. This IBA has a very bold flavor while created with a great balance of malt and hops. Maris Otter malt from the U.K. was used for the base malt which gives it a smooth richness you can identify on your palate. The smoothness also contributes to balance out all the hop presence in this beer which is loaded with about 82 IBUs! Other caramel malts give this IBA depth, which carries out to the end of each sip..(swing, gulp..drink..). This is a big beer with big flavor...a must try!

Bottle at the brewpub. Pours black with a creamy brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of earthy pine hops with a dark roasted malts and a bit of coffee. Flavor has an earthy pine note up front with a strong roasted malt note and a bit of bitter chocolate.

Draft at the Ale House. Pours a deep brown-near black with a tan head. Nose has some faint roast and a strong citrusy hop quality. Some resiny notes as well, hint of caramel. On tasting, it is intensely bitter, accentuated by some astringency from the roasted grains. Some sweet caramel does come through but this is more bitter than anything. Some citrusy hops kind of balance but not really. Decent.

Pitch black body with a tall foamy creamy tan head. The head lasts a long time and laces like Guinness. Aromas of citrus, crisp Marris Otter, and some light black patent. The beer seems to simply get color and a dash of flavor from the black malt, as it isn’t overpowered by the black patent. Crisp citrus and pine hops. Bitter roast. Bitter palate is balanced with some sweetness and carbonation. Medium light body with a clean finish. Alcohol is well hidden.

On tap at Milwaukee Ale House. Poured deep brown with a sticky, smoked beige head.. looked good. The aroma picked up sweet chocolate and caramel malts with fresh pine and earthy hops around.. well-balanced. The flavor found milk chocolates and toasted brown malts at the core, with smoky notes, coffee, and earthy bitterness around.. a little odd, tacky stuff at the end.. solid. Medium-bodied and grainy on the palate with low-moderate bitterness.. this was a good drinker that I’d take another pint of.

Draft. Poured black color with a large frothy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted hop and malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew that I recommend to guys at the bar.
