COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Toxic Sludge is our version of the relatively new Black IPA style. Care should be taken to not spill this heavy ale, as the results could be disastrous, so please consume BP Toxic Sludge responsibly. Hopped at four stages of the brewing process, we combined a hoppy India Pale Ale with a richer, darker malt base for a full bodied beer that’s big on flavor. This limited release, specialty brew was crafted to benefit birds affected by BP’s 2010 Gulf oil spill. 100% of the proceeds go to Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research for their “Spreading Our Wings” campaign. Available only in draft and 22-ounce bottles – you can do more for the birds than drinking your share of Toxic Sludge, donate or buy a cool, limited edition BP Toxic Sludge “Save the Buffleheads” Tshirt: bptoxicsludge.com

from le Mondial de la Bière 2011, Strasbourg - pours a very dark brown beer under a solid and creamy long lasting beige foam; toasted malty aroma; slightly biscuity and with a solid flowery hoppiness; full-bodied and slightly tart; a bit soapy and with a solid bitterness, dry and bitter soapy finish, flowery and biscuity - disappointing

22oz bottle-pours a light brown head with lots of lacing and black color with red tint. Aroma is sweet dark malt-caramel/roasty, pine/resin hops. Taste follows. Towards medium body. Easy/lively.

Sammy (12201) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
The hops have faded somewhat, yet the shwartzbier, roasted black beer aroma and flavour remain. And so I get a somewhat citrus integrated shwartz. Good aroma, good colour and off-white head and lace. Very drinkable. Pleasant, below average as a straight out black ipa.Can from FlandersNed in Warren. Middling mouthfeel.

j12601 (11831) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Bottle at Joe’s ridiculous going away party tasting. Pours a murky brown with a thin beige head. Big and malty. Sticky hops all over. Murky and malty. Nothing crazy going on, but still decent enough.

DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Pint can from Capone’s and State Line. Pours chestnut toward black colored with 1-finger tan head. Nose is choc malt, resiny hops, cacao. Tastes piney hoppy, with the hops taking the forefront, and a cacao and black patent malt flavor at mid-palate. In fact, the hops get dominant late, which is OK because the malt balances them out well. This one is very good.

cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2014
Big fucken can @ home, thanks to BoostIPA. Deep burgundy orange appearance with a foamy brown head. Minty, chocolate, burnt malty nose. A touch of butterscotch. Body is a bit flabby. Lots of toffee and burnt sugar. Pretty bitter flavor. Disappointing.

alexsdad06 (10400) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2017
Bottle via trade from backlog notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have mild roasted malt, dark chocolate, earthy and light citrus hops, gets some sweetness, a bit thin and watery to the finish, ok.

sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2010
Pression @ Lagerhaus. Cette bière renforce mon idée que ce style de Black IPA est franchement une bonne découverte. Couleur est brune avec une mousse dans des tons léger moka. Arôme de malt, grillé, limite de la molasse, caramel, le tout est agrémente de note de citron et de houblon. Au palais, cette dernière donne un superbe goût de grillé et de malt le tout suivi de qcq notes de café en poudre, de grains le tout étant balance par le houblon et un côté pin et citron qui caractérisent ce style de bière.
