Founders Brewing Company
Founders Dark Penance Imperial Black IPA
Brewery: Founders Brewing Company
Style: Black IPA
Format: 355ml Bottle
A heavy malt foundation includes Crystal malt for sweetness and just enough Midnight Wheat malt to push the colour to black. The bitterness is huge, but balanced by malt sweetness and alcohol burn. The hop flavours and aromas range from citrus to floral to pine thanks to a delicious blend of hand-selected Chinook and Centennial hops.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Heavy black IPA
An imperial stout styled IPA with strong dark chocolate flavours along with coffee bean and roasted barley flavour. Smoky/ashen aftertaste. Good to let sit and breath before consuming.
Has a grapefruit aroma which is present in the taste, mellow spice kick
"This is really not a session ale. It's big, it's malty and it's heavy.
It's also absolutely delicious. A rounded, solid dark that you need a knife and fork for."
Decent enough beer, but not as good as some of the other Founders beers. Worth a try.
