COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rich darkness is not excessive as is sometimes seen in other craft iterations. A medium high hop flavor and aroma befits this style. The caramel and roasted malt flavors and aromas are enhanced with a well-controlled fruitiness.

mully262 (56) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Dark body with off white head. This is definitely more on the stout side of the black IPA style. Like a really nice stout with noticable hops, rather than just a darkened or slightly roasted malt IPA, which is more typical of black IPAs. Anyway, this was unique and very tasty.
