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).

sudomorph (515) - Barrie, Ontario, - 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!

Pours dark and black with a tan head. has citrussy hop nose with a malty background. Has some earthy character and some nice piney notes. Big hop character and big malty goodness. Has a nice balance of roasty chololate malt and hops. Hops are typical C style lemony citrussy hops. has a nice clean finish and no earthiness at all. Overall a big Cascadian with everything one should have, strangely made in Quebec!

ljthiessen (327) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
On tap at Barley Brothers, Winnipeg. Virtually black pour with a mocha head. Aroma is toffee and citrus with a touch of coffee. Flavour is roasty malts with citrus hops, notes of toffee and coffee as well. Quite bitter, but smooth and not out of balance.

radiomgb (2227) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Black in colour with ruby edges, very large and long lasting beige head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of roasted malts, citrus and grassy hops, some sweetness. The flavour is of roasted malts, some piney hops, a bit of coffee, some chocolate, lots of grains. Lightly sweet mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes long, roasty. A very good beer, love how the hops are balanced with just a bit of malt.

341ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha in Garineau, Quebec.

Beer 24 of advent calendar. From the bottle. Pours very dark brown. Giant head, way to foamy. Smells of sour, roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Taste is malt, chocolate and a little hop bitter at the end. More like a bitter stout. Not bad, the bitterness helps balance out the stout so it is not as sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Bouteille de 341 ml. Dégustée le 10 mars 2014 (shaker). Bière brune opaque très foncée avec reflets rubis / acajou. Mousse beaucoup, col beige foncé très très épais, compact et très persistant. Très effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de chocolat. Saveur de chocolat noir, de café espresso et un peu fruitée en finale. Alcool bien caché. Finale assez sèche Assez ronde, a assez de corps. N’a pas de défauts majeurs ni de grandes qualités. N’est satisfaisante ni comme IPA, ni comme stout.

Black body white head some lacing. Roasty aroma but not too intense. Taste is semi bitter but finishes kind if soft. Decent black IPA.

mathieuc (1183) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2014 Pours a really dark brown with a big beige head that leaves impressive lacing. Nose is of intense roasted malt, spices and piny hops. Taste is dry and just a big continuation of the aroma. Highly bitter. Coffee flavors are a little intense and come out as a little ashy, nothing to complain about though. Slight acidity in the finish? Must be from all the roasted malt... Body is medium, carbonation a bit intense. Not bad at all but not world class.

A great black IPA. Pours black with ruby hues. Big tan head. Lovely. Aromas are coffee and dank hops. Strong cold coffee flavors. Nice green hoppy finish. Awesome stuff.
