Pamoja Black IPA (5.6% ABV) is a Kenyan coffee-infused international hopped black IPA, brewed by Hillstown Brewery in collaboration with Johnny Hickinson from Middletown Coffee, Ballymena.  

Called ‘Pamoja’ which is Swahili for ‘Collective’, the beer is a very complex Black IPA, using a specially selected coffee, utilising it’s beautiful flavours as a late addition during the brewing process.  The coffee is roasted by 3fe in Dublin and brewed perfectly by Middletown Coffee Co.  

The beer is brewed with the finest base malts from the Malting Company of Ireland and new Bavarian speciality malts from IREKS which haven’t been used before in the UK or Ireland - combined with the finest hops from all around the globe.

Hillstown and Middletown have created a beautifully complex beer that delivers various layers and depths of flavour.  The Black IPA is perfectly balanced with an initial upfront hit of fruity hops, underpinned by a delicious malt presence and, then the exciting part: the coffee.  

The initial bitter taste from the hops, with beautifully fruity and floral aroma, you taste the complex malt profile along with hop bitterness, the complexity is completed with  the finish of coffee at the end.

Available in 24 x 330ml cans, Pajoma Black IPA is available in Northern Ireland exclusively through Drinks Inc.
