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.

Pours a cola brown with an inch and a half of a creamy wood colored head. It smells of delicious hoppy raisins. The taste is of a hoppy chocolate mixed with slight fruitiness and finishes with a not over powering bitterness. It feels like your sucking on a delightfully moist cloud. An awesome beer.

I like this because the juxtaposition of two differing styles in one beer to me is amazing. Hoppy and yet stoutish! Blows my mind in a good way.

Black color with red highlights and a thick dark beige head with great retention and leaving laces.
Nice hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit, fresh grass, mild cocoa, pineapple, oranges, resins, licorice and some home-made coffee.
Complex and bold flavor with notes of grapefruit, oranges, coffee, piney resin, perfume, lots of nectarines and black fruits, caramels, lemon peel, dark chocolate, tobacco and licorice. It made me sneeze right away, attesting its powerful 90 IBUs. Very dry aftertaste with a long lasting intense bitterness and roasted note.
Medium towards full body with appropriate carbonation. Relatively creamy sensation. Alcohol of 9% abv is completely absent.
Great Imperial Black Ale, a burst of flavors and hop bitterness. It has an interesting diverse complexity: earthy, perfumy, citrusy, roasty, floral, chocolaty, and fruity. Simply incredible. And I love the style.
