Lakefront Brewing IBA (Imperial Black Ale), Beer Geek Review 242

6.7% abv, 50 IBU’s

One day, a mysterious, tattered vessel arrived. The ship was desolate, save for its cargo. A keg was tapped. Something else had changed, this was no longer a pale ale.
Okay, the story is fake, but we took all the stuff people love about IPAs and gave this beer plenty of crystal and dark roasted malts. This dark, coffee-colored beer pours a rocky, light tan head that leaves plenty of lacing on your glass.
The hoppy pine and floral aromas ready your palate for an immediate bitterness. Instead, the sweet, caramely crystal malts blitz through, followed immediately by a sharp piney flavor from the Zeus and Cascade hops. The smooth body leaves a long-lasting hoppy finish.
