Jabberwocky 5.0% A.B.V

Black IPA

All the attributes of an American IPA but it’s black.

Do your eyes deceive you? Have you fallen down the rabbit hole? Take in the fresh pine hop aroma then savour the complex malt palate typical of an IPA but then come the subtle hints of dark chocolate and burnt toast to give the game away. This is not a heavy beer, but smooth and incredibly drinkable, a new beer style worthy of praise.

Drink me!

Fantastic beer, and one of my favourites (ever) - I'm not normally one for the darker stuff. Even better when it's fresh from the cask!

Cask at Cloisters. Chocolate and liquorice malt is well balanced with pine hops.

The hand-pulled pint in 'The White Hart' Shifnal on the 21 Aug 2013 looked very interesting: black and moody, with a full beige coloured creamy head that gave of some impressive lacing. Roasted/toasted malt aroma and taste: some hints of chocolate and semi-sweet caramel melting over a wood fire. Not as rich or creamy as it first looks indicated, but this is still a fine beer and the body suited the alcohol level and overall flavours. Different and pleasant from start to finish.

Cask by handpump at Bon Accord, Glasgow - very dark brown, thin creamy beige head, pine, fruity aroma, excellent lacing, sweet citrusy, hint of roasted malt, moderate carbonation, easy to drink.
