BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Surly Brewing Company
Minnesota, United States
surlybrewing.com

Style: American Black Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.99%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

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.

2014 vintage; drank 5/25/14 on draft @ Sheffield's.

Brown/black hue.

Tan head; thick lace.

Coffee beans & orange citrus notes in the nose.

Medium thick, creamy mouthfeel.

Milk chocolate & orange citrus flavors; a good-not-great example of the black IPA style
