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 22oz bottled 3 Floyds version, brewed in collaboration with Three Floyds / Surly / Real Ale.

22oz bottle of the FFF version of the collaboration. Thanks Randy. Poured into a Surly goblet today, 3/4/2014.

App- pitch black, fairly viscous, two finger mocha head with good retention and lacing. Looks like a regular stout.

Smell- lots of citrus hops, roast malts and... Bacon? What the hell is this?

Flavor- up front, grapefruit and passion fruit with a nice roasty malt character supplemented by some milk chocolate sweetness. If it stopped at this point this is a good black IPA. Alas, the last half of this beer is salty bacon. Super weird, not bad but really weird.

Mouthfeel- nice full bodied brew, nice carbonation and that's about it. Finish is... gross.

Overall- this is different but not in a good way.

Bomber poured into a snifter.

A - Pours pitch black with a finger of khaki head that remains with good retention.

S - Big hops reminiscent of Alpha King up front, charred malt, even a little bit of bacon on the back end.

T - Roasted malts and chocolate, some deep earthiness, bitter hops towards the end.

M - Light-ish body, medium carb, sticky with a bitterness that lingers on the palate.

O - This is indeed a strange, yet drinkable beer. The combination of the flavors is a bit odd, and at the end, Blakkr really feels like a beer with an identity crisis: a stout that wants to be a pale ale. A fun experiment, but not one for repeating.
