COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Black Sheep Dolly is what you get when four brewers from three different continents collaborate and hit the beer scene in Freiburg. It has an abv of 6.9% yet it is dangerously smooth. Amarillo and Simcoe hops give our beer an explosion of flowery and citrus aroma, backed by a spicy finish that leaves you longing for another sip.

The base malt is an even mixture of German Pilsner and American Two Row sprinkled with some Munich and hints of Vienna Malts that add to the malt complexity.

Dolly is the first craft beer from Freiburg, it is brewed according to the Reinheitsgebot with a color, aroma, and taste all its own. It is massively hopped, unabashedly bold, and uniquely refreshing making it a beer unlike the rest of the flock!

Enjoy – Cheers.

mmargarucci (328) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - NOV 28, 2016
Pours a golden color with white head. Aroma is very flowery with white fruits like grapes and some spice notes. Taste is well balanced with a good malt backbone followed by a strong flowery hop finish. Very good.

lupuLust (239) - Freiburg, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2016 Actually from the 21st of october this is my ’real’ No.100 - Had some in my time before ratebeer. Intensive hoppy citrus zesty aroma and grassy hints. Smooth palate with the taste of a nice malt body paired with loads of hop. Also very citrus, grassy, some tangeines. Lovely local IPA from Freiburg.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Bottle, as Black Sheep IPA. Fresh white grapes, some citrus, subtle oxidised notes. Quite formidable amounts of residual sweetness but well balanced by the bitterness. Very good.

kappldav123 (6015) - GERMANY - SEP 27, 2016
Huge thanks to quack-duck for that one! Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts fine hoppy, modest dry, some grasy-spicy notes. Mild bitter background. Hints of lemon, peaches, apricot. Finish more balanced. Quite drinkable. Nice one!

Maracuja05 (936) - Mainz, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
[backlog] 04-08-15 / 330ml bottle. Orange hazy colour. Intense hop aroma in the nose. Medium sweet. Tropic fruit like passionfruit, citurs and grapefruit notes, some pine. Bitter finish. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 3.75/5

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2016
- rot-orangene Farbe mit guter feinporiger Schaumbildung - sehr schöne Aromen nach Zitrone, Grapefruit Maracuja, und irgendwie an eine Blumenwiese erinnernd - die Carbonisierung ist mir eine kleine Idee zu hoch ausgefallen - geschmacklich schön ausbalanciert, wobei sich jetzt auch noch eine angenehme Malzsüße hinzugesellt - im Abgang gewinnt dann – wie bei guten IPA’s üblich – die Hopfenbitternis die Oberhand und hinterlässt ein angenehm trockenes Mundgefühl Fazit: Gutes IPA

MrHangover (4192) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden beer with a nice white creamy head on top. Aroma of tropical fruits, hint of caramel, tangerine and sweet citrus. Flavor is very well balanced, bittersweet citrus, light grassy notes and a moderately sweet aftertaste with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is nice and subtle, bitterness not too overwhelming and overall a very nice beer.
