The Brü Revü – Widmer Brothers Pitch Black IPA

I don't have a lot of experience with Widmer Brothers, but their Pitch Black IPA was a good introduction.  I have had a few Black IPAs and this one seemed true to the style.  Looks like a porter but tastes like an IPA.  The aroma was not a full on hop assault, but rather a light hop aroma with a hint of sweet malt.  The taste was more on the sweet malt side with hints of chocolate and bitter roast.   It could have used a stronger hop presence for an IPA, but it was still a tasty beer.  It had a nice creamy body and was lighter than I expected.  All in all this was a very good beer although I would prefer my Black IPAs with more hops; I still thoroughly enjoyed this Pitch Black IPA.
