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).

Reimer96 (1446) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
CBAC day 24.Pours a dark brown with a huge over carbonated brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, piney hops and earth... Quite pleasant. Taste is roasted malts, dark chocolate, cocoa and then a big shot of piney hops on the finish. Bitterness is nice and borders on being astringent bit balances well with the malts. Other than being highly carbonated out of the bottle this is a great beer once it settles in a glass.

presario (4809) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 12, 2013
Advent 23. Too much head and it stays forever. Dark brown beer. Dusty old ale aroma. Brown ale flavour. Plenty of hops build from middle to finish. A bit of dusty Belgian quality as well. just fix the carbonation.

Black pour with a thick beige head. Aroma is bitter roast - chocolate, coffee, earth. Highly carbonated with dark, roasted malt flavours leading to a lingering pine bitterness. Quite bitter.

Lukaduke (2521) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Pours a deep burnt umber almost black with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is roasted malt, pine sap and a bit of earthy soil. The palate is roasty but thin with great drinkability... lots of pine sap, citrus and a grassy bitter finish. The roast is well integrated and this is a good representation of a black ipa and not a porter with hops ! Yum.

sudomorph (811) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2013
341ml bottle. Pours nearly black with a one and a half finger, fluffy, tan head. Large amount of lacing coats the glass. Rather large sediment floating throughout. I think I may have an older bottle. Aroma is roasty but not over done. Hints of coffee, chocolate, and bread. Taste is a balanced bitter with a roasty, chocolate, almost creamy, bitter aftertaste. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Slightly creamy in the mouth but still remains very drinkable. Overall I am impressed. The guy at the dépanner said this was missing from my rather large bottle purchase and I can see why. This is great stuff. Nice and roasted but still very drinkable. I will buy again for sure and hope for a fresher bottle. Cheers!

callmemickey (3391) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2013
More of a hoppy porter than a black IPA, IMO... but that is quite alright. Deep black body, large light tan head, dense lacing. Assertive roast, light coffee, plenty of piney and earthy hops as well as a hint of citrus and floral character. Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, lively bitterness in the finish. Refreshing and satisfying.

Bouteille 341ml. Couleur noire opaque avec des reflets acajou, mousse moka fuyante laissant un anneau sur les parois du verre. Arôme de malt torréfié, houblon floral, marc de café, conifère léger. Goût de malt torréfié, café, houblon résineux, amertume moyenne surtout en fin de bouche. Carbonation moyenne-faible, corps moyen, un peu collante.
