COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Southern Tier Iniquity is an Imperial Black IPA, which is also called an Imperial India Brown Ale. This is a style that seems to be increasing in popularity. The hexagram talisman has been used around the world for centuries to invoke magic and good luck. Wishes of good fortune often collaborate with the brewer’s creative to yield dramatic results. We carefully chose the name for this Imperial IBA, Iniquity - a word opposing goodness. Why? This beer is contrary to what one might expect from an IPA; this is an ale as black as night. It is the antithesis of Unearthly. Some may consider it an immoral act to blacken an ale. We suggest they don’t rely on conventional standards. Allow the darkness to consume you. Iniquity weighs in at 9% alcohol by volume. It uses four different hops and 2-row pale malt along with debittered black malt in it’s brewing.

Poured from bottle into snifter. Dark brown/ black with thin cream colored head that dissipates to a thin film on top of the beer and sides of the glass. Scent has some sweet citrus fruits right away, with dark grains in the background. Taste has plenty of fruit and bread, with a nice slightly bitter finish. Feel is smooth, with some slippery resin. Alcohol is masked very well. Really solid beer. I really like it.

22oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. A pitch black pour with a thin beige head; earthy malt aroma with a trace of chocolate; soft, milky, stout-like body to start with some gently persistent hops providing a dry finish. I was expecting something more assertive.

black color; citrusy hop aroma with roasted malt notes; dark roasted malt and citrusy hop flavor; a great, bitter, hoppy beer with plenty of dark, roasted malt to back it up; some alcohol notes; well balanced

12 oz Bottle from super pack. Pours a deep brown. Aroma of malts, chocolate, espresson, and a bit of citrus. Taste on the sweeter side, some metal, coffee, orange, and grapefruit. Didn’t get much chocolate in the taste. The super pack was of course old and this was bottled in Feb so it’s possible that had an effect. I always pass this up at the brewery but it came in the pack so I tried it out.

Bottle at the black heart Camden. Not that I’m biased loving hops more than any god would permit and generally rallying for the darker art if ale... This stuff just rocks. Black nectar ambrosia with a tinkle of extra hop for your liking. Fancy!!

shrubber85 (11582) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle. Coffee, chocolate malt and metallic grapefruit peel aroma. Dark brown with moderate head. Sweet milky coffee and metallic orange peel flavor. Not bad - hops seem a bit harsh.

We have mixed opinions on this one... I feel like I'm drinking carbonated prune juice... My roomy says he likes it. Go figure...

haukur (2079) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - MAY 30, 2014
Bottled back in 2011! I bet this was bought in "the library" near Montvale via ruffian. Although aged there is still plenty of pine in the aroma along with heavy malts, grain and toffee notes. Light sweetness, medium bitterness. Hold up perfectly with a creamy but slightly bitter finish. Good stuff from a brewery I am beginning
