Absence of Light
Klockow Brewing Company Absence of Light (6.3% alcohol by volume) is a black IPA. Dark malts lead the aromas with a trace of chocolate. Hop aromas are moderate. It pours brilliant dark brown under a 3" lacy tan cap with good retention. Dark malt flavors with a trace of chocolate lead balanced by a moderate bitterness with a light astringent note on the finish. The malt flavors are clean with nothing burnt or harsh. The beer finishes with a long, crisp bitterness. The body is medium and the carbonation is medium minus. This is a very drinkable, repeatable hoppy black IPA. I rate it 78.
