Carton Epitome Imperial Black Ale debuts on Black Friday (video)


(Atlantic Highlands, NJ) – On Tuesday, Carton Brewing announced that Epitome Imperial Black Ale will be released on Black Friday. More details below from the newsletter…

ABV: 10.3% | IBU: 100 | SRM: 42

We don’t have many rules at Carton Brewing and those we have we made up for ourselves. In general though, we strive for drinkability through balance and harmonization of flavors. But even self-imposed rules are meant to be broken. With Epitome we decided to embrace the teenage metalhead in each of us and get discordant with a seriously hoppy, high gravity, black ale. The only notions accepted were to make it bigger, bolder, hotter & faster. A Beast. The ABV had to push past 10, the black had to be “none more,” and the hops had to be American and piled on like a double bass drum kicking faster and harder. Drink Epitome because things worth doing are worth over doing.
