If you haven’t noticed yet, we are huge fans of Rainhard. Everything they make is a hit with us (so far!) so we were really excited to hear that they were working together with Beaus on a black IPA!
While we haven’t fallen in love with some of Beaus more experimental affairs, we do believe they have a solid lineup.
A black IPA is basically what you would imagine from the name. Generally roasted dark malts combined with a large amount of bitter (generally American) hops.
You can purchase a bottle at the LCBO for $7.95 and it sits at 7.1% ABV.
Appearance: Black with a lasting beige head.
Aroma: Tropical fruit with soft hints of lime.
Taste: Starts with bitter dark coffee but then you get hints of pineapple. Some smoke comes in at the end.
Aftertaste: A pure bitterness that stays with you.
Overall: Like a delicious hoppy stout. I wouldn’t pair it with much food, better to enjoy all on it’s own!
