Product details

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.

Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results. Click here for more info.

Nice Beer

Not as hoppy as I had hoped but tasty. second dry hop might solve that issue.

Nice deep color, toasted dark oak flavor, not bad. A tad bitter but very pleasing.

Fantastic!

I've long since moved past brewing kits and usually make my own recipes, but I still get this kit sometimes because it's pretty much perfect. I haven't found a Black IPA (commercial or homebrewed) anywhere that I like better than this one.

Note: I tend to move all the hops to flameout/hopstand and add 2 oz each of Cascade and Centennial to the dry hop. This brings bitterness down and amplifies the magnificent aroma.

Excellent IPA Noir

This is surprisingly smooth considering the hop schedule. Maybe more like an Imperial Stout than a Black IPA, but who cares. Its just damn good. I added an oz of Simcoe to the dry hops. Might try Columbus or Chinook in the dry hops next time.
