...black as the humour of the Crown Prince of Crime, brooding spicy pine with understated citrus.
The dry coffee finish will have you coming back for more. Be careful, too much and you'll be needing a dip in the Lazarus Pit
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
This style of beer is a test for brewers...and they have passed!
Black IPAs, with their massive texture and flavour can be difficult to make drinkable and not overpowering. This has a mouthfeel that is a little oily and dry, but the difficult balance between dark roasted malts and hoppiness has certainly been achieved with this beer.
