This is a new beer launched to market on 6th June 2022 by the Black Sheep brewery.
It is a very pleasant black IPA looking like a porter or stout but with a strong hoppy presence.
The brewer says "Black malt, chocolate malt and flaked oats join Maris Otter pale malt to add roasty caramel and chocolate notes and gives the beer an intense dark appearance. Masses of Cascade, Columbus, Chinook and Citra hops create woody pine, biting citrus and bright tropical flavours".
To drink, it was as they say above. I thought the malt and hop balance worked well making sure the citrussy hops didn't overpower the malt flavours. — a month ago
Deep dark sensuous nose. A little sweeter on the palate than I prefer. — a month ago
This is the Zinfandel but the application won’t let me change the identified wine …. It’s very good, but lacks the peppery bite I expect. Tasted 6 August 2022. — 9 days ago
