COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lima is up next and no, we did not make a lima bean beer or anything inspired by the Peruvian capital city. We made a relatively new style (new to GABF) called an “American-Style India Black Ale”. The name is pretty self explanatory, but you’ve already had a beer or two so I’ll explain. It is like taking a traditional IPA and adding dark malts which add color and a moderate roasty character. It is still in the tank as I type, but we have added nearly 5.5 pounds of hops per barrel making this beer as sticky as any we have ever made. It should end up being around 6.3% ABV and will tip the IBU scale at around 70

Pours a deep brown with amber notes and a medium creamy/bubbly lighter tan head. Aroma of fresh American hops. Mixed citrus, floral notes and lightly grassy. Light touch of roasted malt, nuts and caramel poking through. Flavor of a nice touch of roasted malt, hop bitterness, grapefruit, lemon and pine. Really fresh and crisp black IPA. Find it now and drink it fresh!

Pours a dark cola brown with a tan head. Aroma of pine, roasted malt, and hops. Roasted malt, caramel, and a bitter hop ending comprise a well-balanced flavor. Tight lacing. Very good beer.

Tap at Redlight. Blackish brown pour with a tan, thick rocky head. Pungent citrus hop aroma with some herbal hop notes as well and some roastiness. Taste has some smoky roasty notes in the malt with a spicy citrus hop bitterness. Body is a little thin, which is about the only thing lacking in this brew.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep coffee brown with a creamy beige head. Great nose of piny hops and roasted malts. Roasty palate with light - medium hop bitterness in the finish, damn tasty!

Roasty malt aroma. Dark in color. An interesting brew, balanced all-in-all. A somewhat IPA like hoppiness is present, but roasted malts, almost porter-like, are there as well. Sweetness and bitterness with floral hops in the mix. Very interesting and worth trying.

3.6
Dfonorow (2274) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
Pours extremely dark brown to black with a large foamy tan head. Aroma is roasty, malty, burnt sugar, touch of bitterness. Flavor is roasty with a touch of hops and bitterness in the end. Some sweetness, a little too thin for my liking.
