Twenty One, a black IPA, is Avery's anniversary ale this year. It pours brown, not quite opaque, with a lot of foam. I pick up on rye and spice and pine hops in the aroma, and the flavor adds chocolate malt, coffee, sage, brown sugar. This is a really well balanced black IPA, the bitterness is met with equal richness and a few sweet notes. Good beer.
