Blue Point Brewing Company
New York, United States

Style: American Black Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
While birds of a feather stick together, their wings should not. We blew our cap seeing images of oilslick seabirds and thinking about what may happen to more of our fine, feathered-friends as they migrate south this fall, so we hatched this flighty idea for a specialty brew called 'Toxic Sludge'.
All of the proceeds will benefit Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research's "Spreading Our Wings" campaign and their efforts to build a Wildlife Response Annex. To learn more, please visit:
In times of crisis (like this) we figure you can either hibernate or participate.
Try this tasty, dry-hopped Black IPA, it's as smooth as water off a duck's back. So everytime you drink one, please let out a loud squawk in honor of our beautiful, beaked brethen.
We hope you can dig deep in your hearts (and pockets) to help support the effort.
Be Well,
Mark & Pete

Roast grain and herbal, resiny hop nose.
Pours brilliant deep dark brown under a 1" finely bubbled light tan tinted foam cap.
A creamy palate balances roast with mild chocolate and caramel notes with herbal citrusy hop flavors and a moderate, drying hop accent on the finish.
Medium light body with medium carbonation.
