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.

Reviewed from notes. Sixteen ounce can shared by Andrew - thanks. Canned 2/21/14.

A: Pours black with a half-inch thick tan head which fades slowly to a cap and leaves splotches of lace.

N: Roasty, citrusy, piney, floral, and earthy.

T: Very fruity citrus with roasted malts and dark chocolate overtones, earthy.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes creamy and dry.

O: This version has more hop forward and earthy and thicker feel than the Three Floyds bottle.
