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).

Absolutely delicious and well balanced IPA. Bottle into tulip, purchased from Epicerie au coin Duluth. Pours a a deep, jet black with a nice creamy tan colored head. Nose of fresh hops, floral citrus. Great malt backbone balances out the hop character, making this IPA very sessionable and highly drinkable.

(Dégustée en fût à l’aveugle, dans un verre noir, dans le cadre de l’Iris du goût) - Nez de café sucré... suivi d’une bouche qui surenchérit avec du chocolat et du houblon. C’est l’amertume qui guide le reste de l’étalement avec un arrière-goût qui se prolonge sans fatigue. J’aime beaucoup.

Have to say that I always used Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale has my target point for judging Black IPA’s... well, with this black IPA and the Imperial one from Dunham, they have become the top 2 Black IPAs in Quebec, and solids top 10 on my world list! Just what you want for a "one beer night" or instead of a Stout to finish it. Totally enjoyed this one!

Nice palate of chocolate and bitterness. Feels like drinking unsweetened dark bitter chocolate with a nice american hops aroma.

DerWeg (1563) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
What a pleasure to try this at Only Cafe, bottle. Pours black with huge lasting puffy cocoa head. Gorgeous aroma and taste of lemon and coca and lemon/grapefruit peel zest. The pithy bitter is set off by the fruity-chocolate sweetness and lemon fruit. Medium semi-parching palate and bitter finish with lingering chocolate.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2013 Bouteille 341 ml. Achetée chez Peluso (Montréal). Servie dans une tulipe. Robe noire, surmontée d’un mince collet beige. Collier de dentelle. Arome: fortes notes de café et de malt rôti, houblon. Goût: houblon, chocolat, malt rôti et café. Intense amertume caféinée et citronnée, mal balancée. Long arrière-goût de torréfaction. On a droit ici à un intéressant mélange de stout maltée et d’IPA bien houblonnée.

[4632-20120731] 341mL bottle. Light citrus fruit roast aroma has a bit of a candy note. Black body with a long long-lasting creamy yellow mocha head. Bitter roast malt flavour has a nice long bitter aftertaste. Full body. Delicious, in a different way than the previous beer. (7/3+/8/4/16) 3.8+

341ml bottled poured into tulip. Pours a deep black-brown with some sediment and a finger and half thick light-brown head. Leaves some light/moderate lacing on the glass. Aroma is nice roasty and hoppy blend..."music to my nose"! I pickup some cereals too and the hops is quite floral. Taste is medium-bitter despite the advertised 95 IBU. Palate is seriously well-executed. Body is medium, with a creamy slick texture soft to average carbonation which enhances the creamy feeling. Finish is rather long (still not Stone-Ruination IPA-long...!) and of course bitter with the hoppy goodness that’s in there. Overall this is most likely the best single black IPA (meaning I’m not talking about double black IPAs) I’ve ever had! Honnestly Dunham has improved a lot. I was avoiding them like the plague before but now, I have to say: wow. This has become my new reference point in single black IPAs. Very, very well done.
