Raindogs Oxymoron Black IPA (500ml Bottle)
Black India Pale Ale, that's an oxymoron! Hoppy and drinkable like an IPA but looks like a stout or porter. Oxymoron hits that mark. A full hoppiness from a trio of NZ hop varieties, in a black beer with subtle chocolate roast character from the use of dehusked roasted malt.
Drink with your eyes closed to minimise the confusion!
An emerging beer style roughly defined as a beer with IPA-level hopping, relatively high alcohol and a distinct toasty dark malt character. Typically lacks the roastiness and body of a strong stout and is hoppier than a strong porter. Expressive dry-hopping is common. Also called India Dark Ale, India Black Ale, Cascadian Dark Ale, Dark IPA, and sometimes India Brown Ale.
