pours almost brown, or is-it-black-since-the lights-are-fading-or-almost-out-at-studio-p, with a frothy light beige head, good retention and lacing. citrusy and resinous hops with medium dark roastiness in aroma. relatively clean and short citrusy finish. decent roasted malt character - hint of sweetness. average to soft carbonation, medium body. a little more than decent.

Pinte à la Micro du Lac-Saint-Jean (Saint-Gédéon). Robe brun foncée-noire, surmontée d’un collet beige. Arôme qui mélange des notes de houblon, de chocolat, de malt et d’agrume. Le goût tire davantage vers la stout que l’IPA. Plutôt sucrée. Ronde en bouche. Alcool bien masqué

Boutip (4654) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Draft: Poured a dark black color ale with a generous foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of piney and citrusy hops with a deep roasted malt profile. Taste is also a great mix between some citrusy and piney hoppy notes with some deep roasted malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Nice hops profile and great porter base beer.

Thism beer gushed so much i lost about half the bottle to straight up foam. Had to pour it into a two litre boot glass i had it was foaming so much. A nice sweet coffee, roasted malty aroma with some decent piney hops. Carb is again, over the top and the mouth feel just going crazy. This surprisingly tastes quite good considering i was sure it would be infected. Good roasty malt notes, and solid green piney hops.

This is exceptional. On the nose there is nothing to prepare you for the experience of drinking this dark beauty. The balance is remarkable, really restrained Sweetness and bitterness which both dance together many many moments after the first taste. This beer is an achievement

C’est noir, y a pas de doute. Une mousse beige moyenne surplombe ce liquide ténébreux et s’obstine à y rester. Un bouquet très chocolaté, de torréfaction légère et d’alcool fort nous fait presque oublier qu’il y a une généreuse quantité de houblons à quelque part, enseveli sous toute cette lourdeur sucrée. Mais attention, une finale très amère et piquante prend d’assaut la bouche, le tout supporté par un aspect boisé très intéressant. Une bière cochonne comme je les aime!

Quevillon (2452) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2014
Drank on tap (4 oz) at the Cuvée d’Hiver 2014 beer fest in Montreal. Black, medium beige head. Aroma hops caramel coffee, a little smoky. Coffee taste bitter hoppy double, small hints of cocoa, very bitter is an understatement! They really released the hops!

Bon produit même si la subtilité du houblon utilisé est un peu masqué par autre chose. À réessayer sans faute...

500 mL bottle. Great name and label! I’m really beginning to like this brewery. Acquired in trade with tom10101 - Merci Tommy. Almost stout brown with a stout-like brown head. The aroma is sweet chocolate at first, but then the big American hops show up. It smells full and creamy. And it is. Tastes like a hoppy porter, in the very best sense of that made-up style. Not as hoppy as some black IPAs, though. Very nice beer.
