Bottle (500 ml). Black with a huge creamy brown head and good lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, pine and citrus. Taste is moderately sweet with chocolate, roasted malt, moderate acidic presence, pine, citrus and light to moderate bitterness. Medium body. Slightly dry. Good Black IPA. A tad too much of acidic notes, but still well balanced. Interesting chocolate presence. Ok drinkability.

Draft @ Delirium with the brewer. Brune foncée, col léger beige. Arôme malté chocolaté, moyen avec un houblon subtile citronné en retrait. Note de grains restent également présente. Palais est malté, grillé, caramel restituant bien l’approche Black IPA, fini plus centré sur le chocolaté. Amertume arrive en toute fin de bouche donnant un côté citronné et fleuri. Le tout reste assez sec pour une effervescence moyenne. Je note une pointe presque tourbée en toute fin de bouche avec une pointe levure et chocolat qui prennent un peu le dessus sur les houblons. A revisiter frais pour voir comment les houblons se comportent.

29/VI/13 - on tap @ Délirium Hoppy Loft (Brussel) - BB: n/a (2013-586) Thanks to John for sharing the beer!

Dark brown to black beer, creamy beige head, unstable, bit adhesive, areas of fine lacing remaining in the glass. Aroma: very grainy, mocha, coffee, cocoa powder. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: lots of roasted flavours, bit sour, mocha, some coffee, little bitter. Aftertaste: very roasted, coffee, cocoa powder, bitter dry ending. A what? A black IPA? Ok then... Would’ve placed this under dry stout.

Excellente bière! Goût de noisette et chocolat avec une bonne amertume. À déguster avec un chocolat noir ou un fromage assez goûteux à pâte ferme tel un cheddar vieilli. Du bonbon! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a resilient beige head. Flavor is roast, wood, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla. Surprisingly not so hoppy, some coffee, dark chocolate flavors, but that’s pretty much it. Lingering roasted malt. Medium to strong body, soft, velvety mouthfeel, weak to medium carbonation. Good, but I felt this fit more within the porter category, than within the black IPA. Nonetheless, pretty enjoyable stuff.

Marheb (2855) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 10, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2013 Grosses notes chocolatées et torréfiés bien tranchées par le sapinage. Corps moyen, finale assez docile, tanins et amertume bien équilibrés. Belle création.

2013-05-31. Black body with a nice tan head. 3+ Aroma of lightly musky leafy green hops, light roast. Flavour had a fairly malty base, light roast and leafy green hops. Light bitterness throughout. Average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. Enjoyable middle of the road take on a black IPA. Bottle at Mondial de la Biere 2013, Montreal
