COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We invite you to discover this newest beer style Black IPA. Political debate rages over the origins of this jet black beer as both coasts feel they deserve credit. Our Black Top is a pleasant road connecting Villages and Communities statewide on a ride of Black IPA discovery. Expect this beer to pour a hop forward jet black glass brimming with aromatic bitterness. Brewmaster Dan skillfully weaves molasses and chocolate malt undertones with a soaring rush of clean citrus and pine hop notes, to deliver a drinkable Black IPA. Savor Black Top, like Wisconsin’s miles of licorice ribbons of ink that meander through armies of corn and bovine mowed fields. Enjoy the journey on a road less traveled.

Pours black with a tan head. Flavors of molasses and roasted chocolate malt gain character from a strong piney hop note that runs throughout. Medium length.

Bottle courtesy Drake. Thanks!! Pours dark brown with a large beige head. Aroma is citrus - especially orange, pine, meaty red fruit. Flavor is meaty red fruit (it has a name but it escapes me), orange rind, pine, anise and/or licorice. Very tasty, and a better way to end the night than Jaguar Ice (which will live forever on one of my can shelves).

Sampled at gregwilsonstl's house. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of pine, chocolate, molasses and citrus. The taste was similar to the aroma with more pine, chocolate, molasses, citrus and hops. It had medium carbonation with a nice bitter sweet aftertaste. Tasty.
