COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Black IPA fuses speciality malts with a tropical punch bowl of new world hops to deliver a contradictory yet cultured concoction. A classically ‘pale’ aroma and quenchingly fruity palate belies a broodingly dark and deceptive appearance. Can a beer be both ‘black and pale’? Time to consult the Magic 8 Ball.

RexTalionis (3766) - FINLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Draught at William K, Annankatu, Helsinki. Pours really dark brown in color with a creamy, slightly tan head. Pine, citrus and notes of coffee in aroma. Quite nice mix of these here. Roasted coffee notes in taste with some citric fruityness lingering beneath. Feels pretty dark, even if there is that fruity element present. Has even got a nice, slightly sweet chocolatey vibe towards the finish. Pretty nice one, even if it feels a bit too sweet from time to time. Leaves one with a quite roasted coffee bitterness in the end.
