The 4th release of Left Hand Brewing’s Fade to Black Volume 4 is upon us. This year brings Rocky Mountain Black Ale into the fold, described by LH as Showcasing the duality of dry roasted malts and hop bitterness, Colorado Centennial hops take center stage of this pitch black ale.
So what is up with this one? Your first inhale is dominated by citrus and roast, as slight sweet malt gets pushed back by initial citrusy hops followed by powerful Italian Amaro, Gentian and hop bitterness. The Rocky Mountain Black Ale finishes with a pleasant duality of dry roasted malts and hop bitterness.
