21st Amendment Brewery Back in Black Black IPA

This pours a dark brown-black color, with a soft off-white head that falls fast. Aromas of coffee, baking spice and roasted malt are soft but noticeable, seeming warm and inviting. The medium-bodied mouthfeel is cleansed by brisk carbonation, lifting the rich malty core and black coffee flavor. A subtle astringency hits the finish, fading quickly and ending clean. It's surprisingly sessionable despite the alcohol. Lauren Buzzeo
