COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The black IPA is a wonderful winter beer. Its hoppy character is sure to warm you up on a chilly Michigan winter night. Made with Chinook, Columbus and Cascade hops and Pilsner, C-40, Midnight Wheat and Carapils malts.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, nice sweet milky lactose, hints of nice orange peel, fruity notes, touch of grass. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, nice dark fruit, caramel, sweet dark sugars into some orange, finishing sweet, bitter, full bodied. Nicely crafted.

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Pours dark, opaque, near black with excessive tan head. Aroma a balance of sweet roasted malt and mildly piney, mildly citrus hops. Flavor follows, but ups the hop presence wit bright, bitter grapefruit. A solid, tasty BIPA, but not among my favorites.

This really good looking black beer pour with a thick cream of wheat colored head. It looks like a stout put has that very floral aroma. Blending of hop flavors and coffee stout notes makes this an amazing creation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
