Top 10 beers in the world press

9th April, 2014 by Lauren Eads

Black Pale Ale, Bronx Brewery, NY

Black Pale Ale, Bronx Brewery, NYChris Morris, writing for New Jersey’s nj.com chose New York’s Bronx Brewery’s Black Pale Ale as his beer of the week, which he said had an “inviting” aroma of roasted, coffee, chocolate and piney hops.

He said: “Bronx Pale Ale pours a opaque black, with a fairly large, 2 inch, off-white head. Retention and lacing are both spot on. The aroma is impressive. Roasted, coffee, and chocolate malt smells with earthy, piney hops mixed in. It’s very inviting.

“The taste builds on the aroma nicely. Coffee and roasted malts hit the tongue up front, followed by some bitter chocolate resting on the roasted malt base. Some earthy hops come through to balance what would otherwise taste like a light stout, then come through even more in the aftertaste. The medium body is supported with medium carbonation, leaving a creamy, although somewhat thin, mouthfeel.

“Overall, this was an extremely impressive beer. An unusual style (it’s probably, sadly, the first beer I’ve had called a Black Pale Ale) does stop this beer from being unusually good. What appears to be a dark, roast beer is balanced nicely with earthy hops, making the black pale ale title seem all too appropriate.”

    Only the Irish could brew a BLACK India PALE Ale………, perhaps I should brew a golden stout. I despair.

    How can a Pale Ale be Black?
