We are very proud to have Eastlake Craft Brewery join our Brew Local Series Kits with their Nicollet Mauler Black IPA.
We are so excited about this beer. This is a very unique Black IPA. They way this recipe uses the roasted and caramel malts results in an amazing roast character. They use Chocolate Rye, CaraRye, Carafa III, and Caramel 80L to create roasted character that is rich and delicious without any harsh flavors. The way the roast malt mingles with the dank, resinous character of the hops is absolutely delicious.
The hop combination in this beer is Chinook, El Dorado, and Simcoe. This blend of hops works amazingly well with the roasted character of the beer. With notes of pine and licorice, this dank, resinous blend of hops totally makes this beer!
