BEER INFO

3 Floyds Brewing Co.
Indiana, United States
3floyds.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 22oz bottled 3 Floyds version, brewed in collaboration with Three Floyds / Surly / Real Ale.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Bistre/umber body with a fallow/coffee head; reminds me of 'In the Name of Suffering'.

Aroma: Deep floral notes, pine, dark hops, and a hint of deep roasted malt.

Taste: Glorious; the deep roasted malts come through, along with a soul-crushing earthiness, dark hops, and surprisingly, a caramel/chocolate undertone.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, with a slightly dry and sticky finish.

Overall: Black IPAs are my favorite of the IPA styles, and Blakkr does not disappoint - a truly outstanding beer.

Very smooth, great mouthfeel. Nice late hop taste. Overall, excellent beer. Love Surly and Three Floyds. Would love to see future collaborations from this group. Would like to try side by side with Chicago version. Good head, great color and aroma. Awesome can too!!!
