HogTownHarry (6108) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2011
Cask - Volo Cask Days 2010, Day 1 (session 2). With Stephen G ragging me non-stop in the background, I rate on. 60 IBUs. Mostly opaque ruby, clear around the edges, with an average frothy light brown head. Smells like a nice (non-syrupy) brown ale with a tad more than usual alcohol and oddly some salty tuna (???) and a hint of oak - some, but not much herbal bitterness. Taste is still quite malty and roasty, but in addition to the herbal bitterness, there is building low-level citrus zest bitterness as well - interesting, not entirely sure it’s a complete success. Slick, astringent, weakly carbonated, eventually develops near-IPA level hoppy bitterness, but still very roasty ..... I am still not sold on the "black IPA" concept.

lefossoyeur (453) - 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.

Sammy (8655) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2009
Festival Bières et Saveurs 2009. This brewery rotates 50 recipes so I was happy to get the basics. A very decent stout, medium mouthfeel, a tad sour, with chocolate up front. Black without significant head. Roasty, and chocolate, aroma.
