Garrison Brewery-Imperial Black IPA

Another tasty offering from Garrison Brewing Co., the Imperial Black IPA comes in 500mL bottles and contains a vigorous 6.2% alcohol.  It pours an impenetrable dark, dark brown colour that's topped with a fluffy tan head.  This brew looks for all the world like a stout.

The Imperial Black has a considerably punchy hop-heavy aroma. The tastes flirts briefly with sweet before veering abruptly toward bitter. It's a very full-flavoured beer, with a stout-like molasses front end and a big ol' hop body and finish.

With its deep, ominous look, full hop monster flavour, Garrison's Imperial Black IPA is a beer worth trying. It's an uncommon style, nicely executed.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
