COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottle Conditioned; Regular. Currently 6.0% in bottle.

Black Rocks is a Black IPA. It is very dark in colour, yet has many characteristics of an India Pale Ale. Late mash additions provide the colour without the harsher, roasted flavours of the dark malts. The beer has a blackcurrant aroma and flavours of liquorice and pithy grapefruit

Pours a deep black with a thin beige head. Aromas are light, of roasted malts and coffee. Medium body, flavors of black coffee, roasted malts, hops, herbs, and hints of dark chocolate. Nice bitterness with a dry finish. Not sweet. Nice dark brew, with nice taste not overly complex, but nice. (Made in Belgium? got a Belgium code bar on label?)
