Black Eye

Black Eye is a Black IPA from the Durham Brewing Co. in Pickering, Ontario. I had a pint of cask ale on tap at one of Toronto's premier beer bars. According to the beer list, Black Eye contains 5.1% alcohol. It arrived a dark, almost black colour beneath a creamy layer of dense tan head. Some ruby highlights were visible when I held the beer to the light.  My nose was greeted by a sharp, bitter aroma encompassing notes of sweet fruit and woodsy hops.  Black Eye is very smooth drinking. It journeys from sweet to bitter with unexpected notes of peach and tobacco complementing the bitter IPA jolt.
Black Eye is a really nice, creamy cask ale well worth sampling.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
