Proper Black

6.0% ABV | Black IPA

Proper Black is a black IPA. A clash of beer styles some might say – close your eyes and you are drinking a big brash IPA, open them and it’s a beer of stout proportions. We think the flavours marry perfectly and is definitely one to savour.

Powerful hops dominate the restrained chocolate and coffee notes from the carefully selected roasted malt. Try it with something sweet, a scrumptious carrot cake is a surprisingly perfect partner.
