COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale rubis-noire d’inspiration américaine, qui allie la fraîcheur des houblons américains Centennial et Chinook à la richesse des malts anglais Marris Otter, Crystal, ambrés et torréfiés. Robuste, ronde et sêche à la fois. Le meilleur des deux mondes (IPA et Stout).

Many thanks to cfrancis for this bottle!! Dark in the glass with a nice big beige head. The nose is very hoppy-floral intense, hints of roasted malt together with a nice sweetish smooth floralness. Great! The beer starts intense, very deep and viscous. Roasted malt, floral hops, nice bitterness. Quite dry, not really sweetish, but intense! The aftertaste is nice and roasty, viscous, floral-fresh and nice bitter!
A very great brew! Absolutely great!

Pours darker than Louis CK’s sense of humour - seriously, it is JET black. On the initial pour, the nose is a pure hop bomb: pungent citrus, pine and fresh flowers. Thereafter the hops remain in the background, but at the forefront are heavy cocoa and coffee notes, a bit of dark toffee, and something else I can’t place. Mouthfeel is lighter than I expected, but with a good mix of the malt aromas listed above. There’s a tiny bit of an empty, watery patch in the middle, before the bitter coffee/pine finish kicks in, but there’s still a ton of malt character here. Finish is a nice dry creeper, too. Really nice.

Pours dark and black with a tan head. has citrussy hop nose with a malty background. Has some earthy character and some nice piney notes. Big hop character and big malty goodness. Has a nice balance of roasty chololate malt and hops. Hops are typical C style lemony citrussy hops. has a nice clean finish and no earthiness at all. Overall a big Cascadian with everything one should have, strangely made in Quebec!

ljthiessen (414) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
On tap at Barley Brothers, Winnipeg. Virtually black pour with a mocha head. Aroma is toffee and citrus with a touch of coffee. Flavour is roasty malts with citrus hops, notes of toffee and coffee as well. Quite bitter, but smooth and not out of balance.

radiomgb (2275) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Black in colour with ruby edges, very large and long lasting beige head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of roasted malts, citrus and grassy hops, some sweetness. The flavour is of roasted malts, some piney hops, a bit of coffee, some chocolate, lots of grains. Lightly sweet mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes long, roasty. A very good beer, love how the hops are balanced with just a bit of malt.

341ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha in Garineau, Quebec.

Beer 24 of advent calendar. From the bottle. Pours very dark brown. Giant head, way to foamy. Smells of sour, roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Taste is malt, chocolate and a little hop bitter at the end. More like a bitter stout. Not bad, the bitterness helps balance out the stout so it is not as sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Bouteille de 341 ml. Dégustée le 10 mars 2014 (shaker). Bière brune opaque très foncée avec reflets rubis / acajou. Mousse beaucoup, col beige foncé très très épais, compact et très persistant. Très effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de chocolat. Saveur de chocolat noir, de café espresso et un peu fruitée en finale. Alcool bien caché. Finale assez sèche Assez ronde, a assez de corps. N’a pas de défauts majeurs ni de grandes qualités. N’est satisfaisante ni comme IPA, ni comme stout.

Black body white head some lacing. Roasty aroma but not too intense. Taste is semi bitter but finishes kind if soft. Decent black IPA.
