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).

lefossoyeur (470) - 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.

pours almost black with a frothy beige head, very good retention and lacing. tons of roastiness, smoke, dark fruits, loads of citrus esters, pine notes too, resin. fizzy and soft carbonation, medium body, quenching, hint of sweetness with nice citrus-floral medium long hoppy finish. very nice brew!

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2012
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de malt rôti, de café espresso, moyen-léger de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches) avec des notes de chocolat. Moyennement rond een bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture léger-moyen crémeuse. Goût de malt rôti accompagné de notes fruitées (zeste d’agrumes) lors de l’entrée en boucbew auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de malt assez rôti avec des notes de chocolat noir ainsi que des traces de pain grillé. parallèlement viennent s’installer un goût de café noir aisni qu’une moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux frais pour y dominer la finale. Post-goût long et aux notes asséchantes, moyennement amer de rôti, de houblon herbeux et moyen de café.

VincentL (278) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2012
Noir avec belle mousse, odeur où le houblon domine le chocolat, goût torréfié et amer mais pas assez intense. Palais acre. Je suis déçu.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2012
Pours black with lots of thick foamy head. Roasted aroma. Big roasted taste, with decent citrus finish. Competent for the style. Above average mouthfeel and drinkability.

cfrancis (2511) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2012
Pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, bitter chocolate and some smoke. Taste is the snap of hop bitterness mixed with roasted malts and smoke. I would love some more hop flavours.

FatPhil (9618) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 8, 2012
500ml bottle - shared by the Quebec posse in Lithuania - thanks!
Rich roasty aroma, some ashiness. Taste full, but really not very hoppy for the style. Dry, again clashing with the style. This is just a very good stout. Certainly wouldn’t have complained if they’d have upped the C hops, the aroma could have done with a boost as the ashiness wasn’t so good.

MaximeLanglois (2) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2012 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2012 Bouteille 341ml acheté @ La Barik. Bière noire opaque, belle mousse brune chocolat. Au nez : on sent vraiment en premier lieu le houblon très agrumes, très présent et ensuite un souffle de café. En bouche : tout comme au nez le houblon explose de saveurs d’agrumes comme le citron et le pamplemousse mais pourtant le coté malt torréfié donne une impression de grain de café et d’amerturme en finale! Parfaitement équilibré! La meilleure Black IPA québecoise en bouteille!

Eructoblaster (3118) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2012
Bottle - 341ml. Pours an opaque black body with a lasting beige frothy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with roasted coffee and woody hints. Its robust taste is dominated by hoppy flavors. It also carries woody/roasty notes and ends with a long, strong bitter/roasty finish. Not for Coors Light lovers!
