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.

cause i'm blakkr than black and i'm black y'all. except someone down below made that joke already. fuckin' a.

a surly beer that can keep its head. shit's almost mythical. people will be all like "oh citra xtra, why can't you and todd not be such flat turds?" and the answer is likely that blakkr doesn't have citra in it.

good, rich getting hammered beer. no one cares about the nose here. no one cares that it's more strong ale than weird black ale/ipa. this is good, old-fashioned take four and forget me in the morning territory.

i bet if i posted that i liked this beer to the midwest forum, there would be screeches of "but todd touched my arm once" and i'd probably be banned but this beer is still better.

that having been said, it's way too expensive to ever want to buy this thing again. just sayin' . . .
