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).

jercraigs (7813) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2012
2012-07-31. Black body with a nice big tan head. Dusty roast and leafy green hops, light funky cannabis like accents. 7+ Flavour is a mix of roast and green hops, very lightly bitter. Modest dark malt in the middle. Average plus palate. Decent but the hops could be more assertive for my liking. They do grow a bit in the aftertaste. On tap at Volo, Toronto

I tried this beer on July 20, 2012 at "Bar Volo" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a cola black colour with a cola brown creamy head that lingered. The aroma was roasted malt, west coast hops, and some caramel notes. The mouthfeel was medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was roasted malt, citrusy hops with grapefruit notes definitely present.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
Bottle at home, thanks to Dany! Pours clear black, with a moderate tan head and spotty/ropey lacing. Nose is soapy spicy hops, lots of grapefruit and light roast. Further nosing is rewarded with notes of fennel/aniseed, and dry chocolate. Flavours are very potent, big and roasty and full, lots of soap and spice, along with grapefruit and round bitterness. Very flavorful and balanced. Maybe the best beer of the night so far!

lefossoyeur (453) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2012
Pitch black with a huge frothy off-white head, lasting forever, very good looking beer! Nice mix of aromas, with citrus, pine and bitter chocolate combining nicely. Medium to full body, a good dose of roastiness at first, then a great resinous bitterness coats your palate and ends on a roasted cereal finale. Very nice blend of all the flavors and long aftertaste. Top class Black IPA.
