Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: chickenm on 04-12-2014

Sparks fly when bold & beautiful tropical hops meet a brazen & daring roasted malt base. Their chemistry is undeniable and perfectly balances the hop flavours and aromas of a powerhouse IPA with the depth and intricacy of a complex dark ale.

The creator of the Fearless IPA and Commander Imperial Stout pulls no punches with his newest masterpiece. He's brought your taste buds to their knees with monstrous Imperial IPAs and made them sing with cavernously deep Imperial Brown Ales. Now he brings you his greatest triumph!

A: Deep, deep brown with a couple fingers of foamy, latte-coloured head, dissipating leaving lacing around the glass.

S: No malt, all hops. With my eyes closed, I might think this was an IPA. It's appealing, but if I'm to rate according to style, this is lacking.

T: The hops are running the show. The "brazen and daring roasted malt base" mentioned on the label just isn't there for me. It's not bad -- it's actually an enjoyable enough brew -- but it's not what I was hoping for.

F: Smooth, medium-bodied.

O: This one misses the mark. With all hops and no malt flavours, it's not what an American Black Ale / Black IPA / Cascadian Dark Ale should be. (656 characters)
