Nightshade Black IPA – Winterlong Brewing Co

From Winterlong Brewing Co located in Whitehorse of the Yukon Territory comes their “Nightshade Black IPA”.  The beer pours a deep black colour with a brown head.  The aroma consists of roasted malts, smoke, ash and floral hops.  The flavour is of roasted malts, mild smoke, earth, caramel and bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 75.  This may not be my favourite style of IPA but this one is quite well made and I would recommend picking it up if you can make it up to the Yukon Territory or even trade for a bottle.

Commercial Description:  Dark and roasty malts meet fruity and earthy hops. This beer is unapologetically flavourful, keeping your taste buds on edge.
