neuromatt (1140) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2010
On cask for Cask Days at Volo in Toronto. Served in an English pint glass. Pours slightly reddish black with a small, rocky tan head. The head remains but does not lace. The nose has notes of grain and roasted malts, along with caramel, flowers, pine, grapefruit, earth and a hint of grape. The flavour begins slightly sweet but soon becomes moderately bitter. The finish is long and lingering, with bitter leafy hops. It is medium in body with a milky texture and flat carbonation. Overall, a nice combination of IPA hoppiness with roasty notes. 2010-10-29

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2009
Pitch black with a medium mocha head. Good retention. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and a nice citrusy touch from the american hops. Flavor is roasted malt, capuccino, vanilla and chocolate with a very bitter background. I found the citrusy hops to be far less noticeable in the flavor than the aroma, contibuting more to bitterness than anything else in the flavor. Medium to full body with a rich creamy mouthfeel.

MJGG (950) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2008
Verre de 12 oz, d’un fût, à la brasserie. Arômes de houblon résineux et de torréfaction. Robe noire, légèrement translucide, belle petite mousse mocha. Belle présence en bouche avec une texture crémeuse. Les notes de torréfaction et de chocolat appuient le houblon résineux qui devient très présent en fin de bouche. Arrière-goût amer de houblon. Très intéressant et goûteux.

AGAquino (659) - 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.

lefossoyeur (450) - 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.
