BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Revolution Brewing
Illinois, United States

Style: American Black Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our black IPA is bursting with crisp, clean bitterness and layers of wonderful American hop character. Pale Ale, Munich and Naked Golden Oats give a toasty malt backbone with a smooth mouthfeel. The dark ominous color comes from the Chocolate Malt and the de-husked highly roasted malt. We want the layers of hops to shine against this roasty malt backdrop. Warrior, Citra, Chinook, Centennial and Amarillo lend bitterness as well as a wonderful cornucopia of aromas and flavors of fresh citrus fruit, pine, fresh cut mint and fresh flowers they offer.

Only BLACK IPA I've ever had that actually tastes like a great IPA as opposed a Stout with an IPA label slapped on the bottle for marketing purposes.

Pours black in color with a huge khaki colored head resting atop of the beer. Looks almost like a stout.

Very hoppy aroma. Piney, resiny hops, with a slight hint of vanilla buried deep in there somewhere.

The flavor is hoppy up front, with a strong roasted chocolate malt finish. Really, this is quite an impressive beer. Citrusy, bitter hops quickly give way to a roasty flavor, creating a juicy burst of goodness in your mouth.

This is awesome stuff!
