Black IPA 1 Gallon Beer Recipe Kit
An ebony pint with a beige head is surrounded by an aromatic citrus-and-pine force field, backed by a smooth roastiness redolent of cocoa and French roast coffee.
Your inner cynic says: "Wait, wait ... isn't this just an Imperial Stout?" Well, let's answer your inner cynic question with another question: "Isn't a Dunkelweizen just a darker, maltier Hefeweizen?" The answer is both yes and no. There you go, inner cynic.
Incubated in West Coast craft breweries and brewpubs (the same folks who brought you American Pale Ale, American Amber Ale, and Imperial IPA; they weren't always established styles, either!), these hefty concoctions throw all pretense at subtlety right out the window.
Full-bodied, hop-bitter, and boozy, this beer is compelling enough to both fuel and quash the argument of its stylistic integrity, and it goes great with a blue-cheese stuffed sirloin burger or steak.

I haven’t made it yet. Hopefully it will turn out well. One problem though: the package for the carb drops was broken open and they were scattered in the box. I won’t use them after that. But everything else looked good.
I was wanting to have more coffee flavor come thru. Still a good beer
This one is an exceptional brew, and possibly will become a favorite of mine. Chocolaty malt with a roasted espresso taste, with a quiet and gentle nudge of IPA characters. I thought it might resemble Blackstone's "Dark Matter" but is different in a good way. Light lace foam on a bold but very drinkable beer...absolutely heaven.
Doesn't quite compare to what my local micro brews up but black IPA is hard to find otherwise and it's not always available. It is tasty.
This is the first beer my husband has brewed that I actually liked. He’s been doing it for a couple of years and they turn out ok but this one was actually like ordering a beer at a bar. Husband loved how detailed everything was and now only buys his kits from here. He spends his free time in the garage with the neighborhood dads brewing beer.
