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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

The body is a deep brown and the head is mocha colored. The head appears creamy and is extremely persistent. Aroma = sweet-hoppy-malt. I don't know if my taste buds are weireded out, or if this bottle has been sitting in my reefer too long. I'm in different to the taste. I had high hopes, but I may have sabotaged the tasting by drinking an outstanding fresh hop and an Old Raspy on tap at the bar before having this. The feel of this beer in my mouth is fairly nice. Overall, I'm a little bit disappointed, but understand everything is askew because I didn't come into the game with a fresh palate or a fresh bottle. This is a strong beer!
