A dark, delicious, deceptive IPA

Unravel the dark secrets of Black IPA

A mystery tour for the eyes and tastebuds, Fuller’s Black IPA is the contradictory keg beer that’s redefining ‘pale ale’. Black like a stout, but with the unmistakable hop-kick of a fruity IPA, this spring seasonal tempts every ale aficionado towards the dark side.

IPA is the new black…

From stouts to porters and now IPAs, black is the colour that never goes out of fashion. The ebony hue here comes from dehusked roasted malt, which also imparts subtle chocolate and coffee flavour - but none of the astringency usually found in stouts. 

Without that dry sharpness, big, juicy new-world hop flavours come to the fore - with tropical notes from New Zealand’s Nelson Sauvin hops lighting up the dark.

Brewer's Notes

Brewed to 5.7%, Fuller’s Black IPA pours a deep, dark pint, with a zesty aroma courtesy of the new-world hops. It boasts a rich malt body and a rounded mouthfeel, with roasted notes of coffee and chocolate providing the backdrop for Nelson Sauvin’s unique tropical fruitiness, and the gentle spice of the US Chinook hop.

Food Pairing

Find hidden depths in a humble burger…

Something similar

Ride the rapids of Wild River

Riding the wave of the US craft beer movement, Wild River is an exciting take on American Pale Ale. It’s a double-hopped brew made with several Californian hops – a golden beer inspired by The Golden State.

Something completely different

A Porter that carries on tradition

A modern take on the 19th century porter style, Fuller’s rich, chocolatey London Porter recaptures the brooding beauty of pre-Victorian London. It’s evocative of simpler times but it’s a wonderfully complex pint.
