Black Mettle | Trillium Brewing Company
Style: IPA - Imperial / Double Black
Description: Black Mettle is the dark, roasty cousin of our signature Mettle Double IPA. The fermentation profile in this Black Double IPA was adapted from our standard schedule to develop and highlight its unique flavors and aromas to ensure that it is tremendously satisfying yet beckons for another sip. True to its name, Black Mettle presents a decidedly black color topped with a creamy, soft tan resilient head and casts a varied nose: light roast coffee, charred pretzel, and bright chocolate are balanced by earthy pine, floral, and fruit notes. Palate follows suit with sappy pine, grapefruit zest, yet there's just a soft roast and a fleeting cacao note, all complemented by a medium body and dry finish with a present but gentle bitterness.
