Bottled 06/02/14. Pours a dark reddy brown black with a tan head. Aroma has caramel, light veg, ripe trop fruit - pineapple. Medium body, medium carbonation. Some pine, grass, dark fruit, some light choccy stuff, bit of coffee and all the fruit - loads of fruit - grapefruit, orange, lemon, passion fruit, light lychee and there’s a decent amount of caramel too. Solid.

Boutip (5183) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle: Poured a dark black color ale with a nice dark brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of roasted malt with super nice notes of green hops with light piney notes. Taste is also dominated by deep roasted malt notes with some fresh green hops notes is really enjoyable. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Superb balance between green hoppy notes with some lightly roasted malt notes. I wish this beer was available locally on a regular basis.

Nareszcie takie Black IPA za jakim się stęskniłem :) Piana jest beżowa, pięknie oblepiająca teku. W aromacie chmiel, zioła, cytrusy z elementami szałwi. Smak wyraźnie żywiczny i sosnowy z idealną - średnią goryczką. Najważniejsze jest to, że piwo ani trochę nie jest palone czy kawowe - czuć chmiel i to lubię ;)

Bottle (330 ml). Dark brown with a medium beige head and heavy lacing. Aroma is a burst of chocolate with a fruit explosion along with resinous notes and liquorice. Taste is slightly sweet and moderately bitter with a huge amount of chocolate along pine, caramel and liquorice. Alcohol is well hidden Medium body. Lively carbonation. Dry finish. Drinkable for the abv and the style. Very tasty. Really good!

Metalchopz (2606) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2014
Pours a dark brown colour with copper highlights. The head is big, creamy, beige, has great retention and some tiny bubbled lacing. Nice fresh hoppy nose with the roasted malt as base. Much of the same for the taste. Oily mouthfeel with a nicely balanced bitterness creating some mild dryness in the finish, but not too much. The grass is fresh everywhere, so good choice of hops in this one. Goes down very well. Was just fooled by the title, as I did not expect an Imperial American Black Ale.
