COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double India Black Ale aged in Bourbon barrels. An ale so dark and black that it’s completely impenetrable to light, with a layered nose of rich sweetness and unexpected earthy hoppiness. This hefty bodied beer presents big bitter black barley and roasted coffee flavors, along with subtle compliments of dark fruit and green hops. After aging in Bourbon barrels for over 9 months, strong flavors of vanilla and charred oak provide an array of compliments, along with some unique hazelnut characteristics.

JulienHuxley (5949) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle shared by Sarro and crew who very graciously hosted us during the Hill Farmstead 3rd anniversary snowstorm. Opaque black pour, nice brown head. Aroma is more imperial stout like, a bit weird, lots of cinnamon, molasses, licorice. Taste is slightly hoppier, still more stouty than IPA really, pretty good though, lots of bourbon, vanilla notes, bitter hop finish. Tasty.

(Critique chaotique du extreme beer fest 2013): Bien corsée, torréfaction, peu de houblons pour une ipa mais une agréable balance. Solide.
