Definitely Not A Thing
Collaboration with Cloudwater Brew Co.
IPA - Imperial / Double Black
Malty, sweet and strong. Definitely a strong beer. Not surprised to read it was 10%! Biscuity brown bread malt comes through strongly.Earned the Sky's the Limit (Level 3) badge!

Definitely kind of a thing. Tastes like hot chocolate... but cold. Nose has some (black T)IPA but it tastes nothing like an IPA. Maybe a hopped strong chocolate ale. Or some thing.Earned the Black as the Night (Level 13) badge! Earned the The Dark Side (Level 28) badge!
A month or so past it's BBD but I don't think that matters with this. Roasted barley malts on the nose, and sweetness that carries through to the taste. It's sweet. Slight back end booze burn. Whatever you think of BIPAs, this is a classy effort.

Not as obscenely thicc as the Cloudwater birthday BTIPAs but on the wrong end of flavour and texture combos for this old fashioned curmudgeon. Let’s not make it a thing.Earned the The Dark Side (Level 25) badge!
