Un drôle de brassin d’une bière que j’ai le souvenir d’avoir dégustée autrement dans le passé. Un look irréprochable: sombre, crémeux, mousseux. La mousse claire contraste magnifiquement avec la robe noire de la bière. Un nez complexe où plusieurs éléments se retrouvent rarement impliqués. Je passe de la réglisse noire à la fumée, au raisin, au houblon résineux, à la mélasse... Je me perds dans cet amalgame d’arômes qui m’apparait déstructuré. Les saveurs me rappellent plutôt un porter fumé qu’une impériale black IPA. Amertume tranchante coupée par une torréfaction à laquelle se joint une mélasse capiteuse qui se termine sur des notes légères et apaisantes. L’arrière-goût est pour moi préférable à l’attaque qui elle-même est de loin supérieure aux arômes. Une bière qui se doit d’être bue à l’envers!

Deep black pour. The nose is great. Rich and cocoaish with a nice earthy cocoa character. Some rich earthy hops and a bit of lingering sweetness. A lovely soft peppery character and a bit of earthiness as well. Pretty nice black IPA (although it drinks more like a hoppy porter)

Draught at the brewpub. Deep black with some lace. Smells candyish along with hop resin and roast. Full bodied with a strong dose of alcohol. Lots of bitterness throughout and some mild vegetal notes. 2014-05-31

Pours jet black with a finger of tan head that lasts. Some hops and pine aromas with strong pine, hop and burnt malt flavours. A very good black IPA.

[ Keg ][ 6oz ][ Dieu du Ciel Montréal ][ $3-4][ Stemmed Wide Flute ][ 5/26/14 ]
>> Rocky tan foam, great lace. Nose is strawberry, blueberry, fruity hops. Taste is quite awesome with pineapple rum warming alcohol, fruity hops, rum soaked chocolate cake. Palate is silky, bitter but juicy. Really good. Wife gave this a 4.2-4.3 as a Black IPA lover. It’s boozy, but never felt sickly. Monster beer.

neongolden (1231) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
(On tap at the Montreal brewpub, May 28 2014) Pours an opaque black with a large, creamy tan head that left lots of lace. Aroma a powerful blend of hops and roasted malts. Hop profile has pine needle, resin, earth, orange rind, ripe citrus flesh, while malts contribute a moderately heavy roast, dark chocolate, a bit of coffee. Flavour follows the nose nicely, a rich and slightly sweet malt core with a good portion of smoky roast and chocolate combines with the pine-heavy, resinous, slightly fruity hops very well. The finish is not as bitter as a DIPA, moderate and dampened by the malt core but with very little alcohol coming through. Mouthfeel is moderately full, rich and creamy, soft carb. Great balance makes this a textbook big black IPA with bold flavours paired with easy drinkability. Could be dangerous!

Massive beer. Poured from draft at their brewery in Montreal. Very minty almost like an Andes candy. Choclate. Good. Just a big beer
