glennmastrange (2145) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Tap. Moderate to heavy malt and hop aromas of toasted bread, caramel, and pine resin, faint dough for the yeast, with hints of pepper and wood. Head is frothy, creamy, light tan with good lacing and legs and is mostly lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts faint sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium,creamy, with a soft to lively carbonation. Great balance between malt and hops in this Black IPA, all dark and toasty stuff, and a perfect feel for the style.

Marheb (1749) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2012
Sapiné, floral et résineux, elle ne fait rien d’extraordinaire mais ne croule pas sous les malts rotis. Agréable, sans plus.

Elle est noire ayant une mousse brune persistante, qui s’étant sur les côtés pour en garnir d’une dentelle discrète. Des odeurs houblonnées, de conifère et de grains grillés en émanent. Le goût se situe bien entre les deux mondes du style. Les particularités d’une stout prennent un peu le dessus sur celle d’une IPA. Un côté velouté, apporté par les grains noircis s’occupent bien des papilles, alors qu’une belle et bonne amertume tranchante est ressentie en arrière-goût. C’est bon, surtout si je ne cherche pas trop à savoir quoi est quoi. (410-181012)

vipinvelp (1889) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2012
Black with brown thick foam head, sticking to lip and lacing to glass, just the way I like it. Aroma is bitter hops and chocolate. Taste is overwhelming bitter hops and yet chocolate and toffer present. Good long lasting bitter aftertaste. A good beer. (Montreal 201210)

AGAquino (658) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2012
From notes, at Bar Volo. Pours a cloudy black with a nice foamy tan head. Nice hoppy aroma, toasted malts, dark chocolate and nice balanced hop bitter.

tom10101 (2218) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2012
Cask at Soirée des Grands Crus, Siboire (Sherbrooke). Appearance: Black with a small creamy brown/moka head and beautiful lacing. Aroma: Citrus, coffee, chocolate and hops. Taste: Citrus, roasted malt and hops. Palate is creamy. Slight bitterness. Overall: Well balanced and refreshing but could add more complexity.

SlovakSniper (2815) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2012
(Un verre de bonne dimension. Version 6,3%) Une présentation soignée. Une mousse brune passablement dense qui laisse quelques traces. Une robe très foncée, jamais noire, touchée par des éclats rouges. Un nez qui présente un aspect rôti enfoui sous des aiguilles de pin et d’épinette. Des saveurs plus intéressantes avec une petite place pour le chocolat. Des aiguilles de pin, encore une fois. Un aspect floral intéressant. Une proposition éloignée de la grosse résine malhabile. Un corps qui penche vers la légèreté. Une texture qui présente un très fin profil crémeux. Des bulles bien placées. Une finale enrobée par la verte fraîcheur de houblons modérément vigoureux.

swoopjones (5333) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2011
cask days 2011, less than intense roasted malt aroma, some c itrusy hop bitterness. Flavor was solid, not too roasty nor to bitter, a nice balance between the two. Pretty good

lefossoyeur (430) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2011
Almost black with a small beige head. Nose is piney with a touch of roasty grainy malts. Light to medium body, lots of roast malts in there, average bitterness, sticky finish. Average black IPA.

TheJester (1728) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2011
On tap at Benelux. (Listed as a "west coast stout" at 6.8%). The aroma is all hops - no roast or caramel features. Lots of fresh hops. The flavour has lots of hops early, some roast in the middle, and some chocolate at the end. Nice lingering bitterness. Full creamy body. Nice beer.
