BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Atlas Brew Works
District of Columbia, United States

Style: American Black Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A limited release Black Imperial IPA. It’s dank and delicous; don’t miss it!

Not a beer to bring home to Mom, NSFW is most at home in shady joints and dives from Mos Eisley to Gommorah. Born on a moonless winter night in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, it made its way east, dodging authorities at every turn. So black it makes both pot and kettle blush, NSFW features criminal hop bitterness and a dank pine aroma that will make police dogs alert their handlers. Use with extreme caution, and don’t tell your boss.

Poured from a can into a snifter. Pours pitch black with a fluffy light brown head. Smells of floral hops and slight earthiness. Tastes of citrus and earthy hops with coffee notes. Beer is medium to full bodied and fairly easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.

Pour: On draft at the brewery. Poured into a tulip glass. Appearance: Jet black with a minimal off-color head. Aroma: Coffee, malty and a slight touch of background hops. Deep berry notes as well. Taste: Follows the nose with coffee, malts and deep dark berries. Aftertaste: Coffee notes linger all the way to the end. A touch of warming alcohol given the ABV. Overall: Very strong offering from Atlas. I really liked it! Very good: 4 out of 5.
