Notes/Commercial Description:
This double black as night IPA is too massive for just one brewery's efforts. BLAKKR took the trinity of Real Ale Brewing Co, Surly Brewing Co, & Three Floyds Brewing Co, to actualize this crushing ale. Cheers.

This is the 16oz canned Surly version.

Originally had this on tap at Zorbaz in Detroit Lakes and was surprised with how much I liked it as black IPA's are usually not my thing. Bit the bullet and picked up a four pack for $18 or whatevert it was and I am glad I did. There are some beers worth the extra cash and this is one of them.

A-Dark black with a light brown creamy head.

S-Really a great hop laden aroma....tons of citrus with oranges, tangerines and tropical fruits bursting out of the glass....my glass is two feet away from me and I can still smell its aroma drifting towards me.

T-Until now this seemed like an IPA but the "black" part comes in on the taste. I expected it to be very hop forward and while the hops still do shine also entering into the fray are flavors of dark chocolate, light molasses, and roasty malts....the blend is dazzling

M-A bit syruppy....expected the hops to provide a bit more balance on this end of things but the hop strengths seem to be in the aroma and flavor with not much of a tight dryness on the finish.

O-This is really special. I may buy one more four-pack of this before I am done.

Serving type: can
