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).

BeerBeCue (103) - Montreal, Quebec, - OCT 5, 2012
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.

s_r (111) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
Robe noir avec un généreux col de mousse. Nez café avec une pointe de fuité. En bouche c’est doux en chaleureux. Les saveurs torréfiées laissent une (trop) légère amertume en fin de gorgée.

fiulijn (17990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2016
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark color, near black, with compact tan head. I don’t appreciate the aggressively burnt character, very ashy, palate wrecker, graceless, but behind that there is a nice robust hopping. Just burnt malt in the final.
I wouldn’t enjoy drinking more than a few ounces.
Excessive.

bière très noire et opaque --- arôme d’agrumes, de pins et de café --- même chose en bouche avec une amertume franche

biirusaikou (2201) - - JAN 12, 2016
Bottle shared. Fresh piney hops nicely balanced with a rich dark malt base, round mouthfeel, dry hoppy finish. Another tasty one by this solid brewery, never shy on hops.

wolffish (482) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2016
Très bonne bière qui penche plus vers le Stout que l’IPA selon mes papilles... Un peu moins de grains torréfiés me la feraient probablement plus apprécier (désolé, je ne suis pas un amateur de café). La mousse est irréprochable.
