Profile: The new Heavy Seas winter seasonal, Black Cannon Black IPA, is a take on Clipper City’s well-regarded Loose Cannon IPA. Brewed with black malt and a variety of hops, it combines the roasted flavors and aromas traditionally associated with dark ales and the citrus and pine essence of bright pale ales. The result is a flavorful hybrid brew with earthy chocolate and coffee notes.
Pair with: Match the bold flavors of Black Cannon with similar foods, such as wood-grilled meat, sharp cheese or dark chocolate.
