Bridge Road / Mikkeller Dark Harvest
Brewery: Bridge Road Brewers / Mikkeller
Style: Black IPA
Format: 330ml Bottle
A collaboration brew from two highly rated brewers. This beer was first brewed in 2012 with fresh wet hops picked in the evening and brewed after dark - hence the name Dark Harvest.
The beer is now brewed annually and features locally grown fresh hops: Ella and Vic Secret. Expect subtle tropical characters as well as a fairly aggressive bitter finish, enhanced by the roastiness of the dark malts.
A great annual limited release beer.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Perfect for colder months
A great collaboration from Bridge Road & Mikeller to produce a great hoppy experience from a dark IPA.
Excellent to drink around a fire & matches well with dark chocolate.
A beverage following more in the tradition of black beer than hoppy porter, this handy collaboration features a slightly toned-down 'roastiness' that sits rather gently on the palate, either freshly opened, or rested at room temperature. And though it may not compete directly with several of its black IPA contemporaries, this is an amiable addition to any beginner's quest for darker pale ales.
