3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A medium-hoppy dark ale with succulent malts.
How: From a bottle at Montreal Mondial 2013.
The look: Very dark mahogany body topped by a small beige head.
In long: Nose is only moderately hoppy (tobacco-leafy, citrusy) with some toastiness. Taste has a nice toasted fudgy-chocolaty malt backbone that pretty much steals the spotlight from the hops. A mild bitterness that barely opposes the fudge malts. A fun beer, this is a Black IPA that I appreciated for its malt bill. And speaking of roller coaster, I find that trying craft beers at a beer festival is like a lot like a long ride of roller coaster, so many great beers and so many bad beers and after a while I needed to throw up.

Drank from a bottle at the 20th Mondial de la Bière, June 1, 2013. Very dark brown, thin head. Nuts hoppy aroma, notes of Belgian yeast. Taste of hops barley, a little spicy and very dry, bitterness of scented herbs. It does not look like anything of a black IPA or a Belgian IPA, but it is done well!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours totally black with a tall frothy light brown head. Aroma is malt, citrus, fruit, chocolate, toasted and floral notes and hops. Taste is light to medium sweet of fruit and citrus leading to a medium bitter; and toasty and hoppy finish. I guess I was hoping for a bit more body but it’s still very good.
