3 Floyds Brewing Co.
Indiana, United States
3floyds.com

Style: American Black Ale

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.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A. Very dark brown. 95% opaque. Frothy cappuccino 2 finger head. Nice lacing around the glass.

S. Big chocolaty malts coming through. Caramel and toffee. Almost a peanut butter aroma.

T. Taste follows the nose. Roasted malts and coffee. Some toffee like presence. Almost taste like the malt you put in shakes to make a "malt". Grassy aftertaste.

M. Medium bodied. Quite carbonated. Slight dry aftertaste.

O. A very different beer. Being a black IPA although a different one it seems to pull notes from porter as well. Deep malt like a porter and carbonation like an IPA. Flavor is decent. Mouthfeel is different for the "style". Overall a decent collaboration.
