We don’t actually wish you harm but our Malvolent Imperial Black IPA will assault your taste buds with reckless abandon. Evil might be represented in its black colour. Alchol is definitely there. But simcoe columbus and centennial hops have been used in a distrubing amount to give the flavour and aroma in this behemoth Imperial Black IPA. You have been warned

Spicy nettley roasty aroma. Taste also - a harsh roasty messy taste. Rough hops. A mess. Does have some boost... is that a good thing?

Aroma has licorice and grassy hops. Also some ash. Flavour has licorice, ash, pot coffee, very dark chocolate and minerals. Also nettles. Hides the ABV well, could work even better as fresh.
