Pioneer Brewing Co Black Limited Release Angus Black IPA from Plonk in Canberra from my last sojourn. A coffee infused black IPA, I should say heavily infused and apparently malt that’s grown on the Pioneer farm!

Pours a dark black with a soft caramel coloured head. Strong aromas of coffee and malt. Upfront bitterness from the coffee with a very nice smooth malt middle and a mildly hoppy back end without any bitterness which is all upfront with the coffee. Black IPAs are my favourite style, I love them, this is a great coffee IPA, not sure if it’s a black IPA though nor does it claim to be. It’s different and I like different. Will definitely buy it again if they rerelease it!
