A pitch-black pour moves through a blackberry and dark chocolate aroma to a fig taste and a summery pine finish - this beer isn't dark at all; it's a rainbow.
Look: This beer lives up to its name: it pours pitch black in the glass with a thin beige head.dark chocolate
Aroma: Intense pine with some grapefruit and some berries from those Mosaic, Columbus and Simcoe hops.
Taste: Full bodied and comple, the taste is malt, coffee and before the fruit comes through with blackberry and fig plus a big resinous finish from the hops.
Food Pairing: Black IPAs are versatile when it comes to pairing with food; try pairing this with a charcoal grilled steak and salty triple cooked chips.
Verdict: A quite brilliant example of a beer in this style. We want to live in the dark, too.
