Phillips Brewing in Victoria BC has released a new version of their classic Black Toque.
Black Toque was originally brewed in 2005 and is noted as being one of the earliest examples of the Cascadian Dark Ale / Black IPA style.
Pouring a deep black colour with an off-white head. Citrus and floral aromas are rounded out by hints of toasted marshmellow. This hybrid style combines the distinct hop forward flavour of an IPA with the smooth characteristics of a dark ale.
Black Toque will be available shortly at select private liquor stores throughout BC and Alberta.
