Black Forest I.P.A.

Black Forest I.P.A. is as scrumptious as cake in a glass, offering up dominant flavours of sweet cherries and earthy cocoa. This strong Black I.P.A. was brewed with German dark malts and an addition of dried sweet cherries. Black Forest I.P.A. is black, unfiltered, and a perfect bittersweet blend as the cherry fruitiness mingles with the hops and roasted malt flavours.

History & Style

The Beau’s brew team has created a German-style interpretation Black I.P.A., a relatively new beer style that originated on the West Coast of the US. The name is, of course, a tip of the hat to the well-known chocolate-cherry slice of German deliciousness known as black forest cake.

Tasting Notes

A bright cherry aroma is complemented by roasted malt notes, which are followed by spicy, herbal hops. Dry-hopped with some Simcoe for a hint of pine. Flavours of cherries and earthy cocoa dominate. The finish is dry with a pleasant lingering bitterness.

Food Pairings

Country-style ham with a sweet/sour cherry glaze, cherry cheesecake with chocolate shavings.
