lesifflebiere (1291) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
Abondante mousse couleur crème, sur un liquide noir bien pétillant. Dégage des arômes de grains torréfiés, de cassonade et d’herbes. Belle amertume bien ronde en bouche, mais pas trop envahissante ; on ressent aussi les notes grillées, et le tout est bien équilibré. Une bonne représentante du genre.

Noir d’encre et mousse cérmeuse, check! Odeur torréfié typique Amertume forte, légère acidité, arrière goût amer qui trâine longtemps, un peu mince en bouche. Assez bien.

À l’oeil : Un noir profond, une mousse beige qui tient comme un pudding. C’est du lourd. Au nez : Café moka et un peu de fruits confits. On sent l’amertume, l’acidité et la fraîcheur à même le nez ! Au goût : L’amertume terreuse frappe ! Une bonne carbonation et une finale amère. Le nez est stout, les saveurs sont IPA, le meilleur des deux mondes quoi !

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours deep black in colour, tonnes of frothy tan head, tonnes of lacing. Really solid beer, tonnes of bitter roasted malt and some c hops.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
500ml bottle from Saucisserie BDF.
Appearance : Deep black with big fluffy and thick brown head. Very long head retention with lots of lacing.
Aroma : Rich piny and resinous hops with roasted malt. Some chocolate with light coffee. Rich roasted malts.
Taste : Piny and resinous hops with roasted malt. Slightly citrusy. Slightly astringent finish with lots of hops and some roasted malt. Coffee and light chocolate as well.
Palate : A wee bit aggressive on the carbonation but not too bad.
Overall : Quite a nice Black IPA. Hops could be a tiny bit less resinous and piny for my taste. Finish is quite persistent. Really nice looking. A pretty good example of the style that is not shy on hops. Dunham Black IPA was better balanced IMHO.

Le Colombus colle à la langue avec un léger support rôti, ya même quelque chose de lacté dans le corps, amertume modeste. Belle cuvée.

Bretteux (176) - Ste-Julie, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
Un col majestueux qui s’ apparente à de la meringue .Au nez, des notes de fruits de la passion et d’agrumes.Au gout on peut apprécier des saveurs de torréfaction et une amertume moyenne a l’arrière palais.En finale, une bonne déguste avec mon très bon chum Pat!

Bendrixian (1131) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2013
light black colour with a foamy head. Roast, coffee and toffee or tootsie roll aroma with a hint of hops. the beer is like drinking a medium bodied hoppy stout. it lacks depth and character. boring brew.

500ml bottle. Pours the colour of cola with lots of tan head. Light nose of coffee and chocolate with a solid hop presence. Lots of chocolate on the palate with faint hops. Tootsie roll!!

In short: A roasted, yeasty, dry, coniferous and grapefruity Black IPA. Solid.
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed approximately one month after purchase.
The look: Black body topped by a large tan head with medium retention and leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is a good mix of roast (burnt toasts) along with citrusy and piney hops. Nothing intense in the nose but this basic mix of aromas appears well balanced and inviting. Taste has a moderate amount of malts that comes out strong because they are highly roasted. That moderate amount of malts is supported by a yeasty soup. The high roasted level brings forth the usual suspects of burnt toasts, roasted coffee beans and such. Hoping is very coniferous in mouth with bitter grapefruits showing up in the very end. An overall bright sensation in the hopping makes for a crisp beer even if very yeasty. The relatively low malt density makes for a rather low sweetness sensation. Pretty solid effort by Boquébière, these guys keep improving. If someone ever makes a move about my life and you then you watch it backwards it will be the story of a guy who refills beer bottles and brings them to a store to get money.
