(Lakewood, NY) - Southern Tier Brewing is adding a second big beer to its lineup early this year.
Iniquity Imperial Black Ale is a ‘black’ IPA, the color coming from the use of debittered black malt.
So what is the difference between this beer and the brewery’s existing imperial IPA, Unearthly? The new beer is a bit lighter in alcohol at 9% ABV and uses willamette in the hop back stage. Unearthly uses styrian golding hops at that point as well as chinook in dry hopping. The malt bill is obviously a bit different between the two beers.
