Favorite black-IPA hands down... Taste is dominated by the bitter cocoa and hoppy grapefruit and orange taste.
There is some roasted grain and sweetness that comes through. Blakkr is a medium body, oily texture and carbonation is pretty low. The alcohol is hidden well for a 9.99% beer. Overall, this is one fantastic offering of a rare black-IPA, very trade-able.

A classic Surly beer. Hopped the same as Furious, but it's a stout! I think the high hop bitterness with so much roasted bitterness is a bit much, but I like it well enough.
