The eighth beer in Summit’s Unchained series comes courtesy of Mike Lundell, the brewer also responsible for the third beer in the series, India Rye Ale. This time around, he’s making a Black Ale. Details below:

Brewer: Mike Lundell
Color: 70 degrees Lovibond
Malt: 2-row Harrington, Torrified Wheat, Cara Wheat, Midnight Wheat, and Carafa III Special
Hops: New Zealand Pacific Jade, Australian Galaxy
Medium bodied ale with a pronounced citrus/passion fruit/mango aroma, slight astringent/burnt character from the black malt. Think black colored hoppy ale.
The beer will be released late October/early November. More definite dates to come once production is scheduled.
