Pith dense black color with sediments and a creamy brown head. Aroma has coffee, chocolate, pine needles and citrus, with a solid roasted malts backbone. Taste follows the aroma, very intense chocolate and coffee with strong pine and citrus characteristics. Really bitter aftertaste. Surely a solid DBIPA.

Bottle. Rich aroma of roasted grains, cherry, and licorice. Great taste, well balanced roasty fruity and bitter. Very good.

HKdIPA (458) - HONG KONG - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle from Le Marche des Brasseurs in Hull. Pitch black pour with minimal carbonation and little head. Aroma is coffee and dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, some pine hops. Taste is very bitter - coffee and roasted flavors more than hops, but there's some of that too. Rich palate but manages to stay light with the strong carbonation. Quite bitter but thought it would be way more so with 117 IBUs. Very solid example of a black IPA.

341 mL bottle. Jet black with a medium, light brown head. Awesome lacing. The aroma in very appealing - nice mix of roast and orange-y hops. Smells a little like those chocolate oranges. the flavour is not as big as the aroma would have you believe. Disappointing, but still, it’s appealing, Nice balance of the two worlds.

Huge rocky light brown, long lasting head with excellent lacing over a pitch black body.Heavy malty aroma of toasted grains, molasses, dark chocolate and black coffee with some grapefruit hops hiding in the mix. Excellent flavour of citrus followed by a bitter black chocolate, coffee, long lasting finish.Medium creamy body with lively carbonation and alcohol (8.6ABV) well hidden. Very nice indeed!

Arômes trés puissant de malt rôti, bois cendré, café moka mais aussi de houblons rappelant les agrumes comme la mandarine et pamplemousse. En bouche, le goût fruité prend le dessus rapidement. C’est frais et très doux considérant le taux d’alcool. Les saveurs de torréfactions suivent rapidement et le tout s’harmonise parfaitement. L’amertume s’étire longuement en laissant sur les papilles des efluves de grains de café de noisettes et de pamplemousse. Sans la mention "impériale" sur la bouteille, on pourrait s’y méprendre tellement le liquide est souple, frais et l’alcool presque inexistante au goût et au nez.

Who the hell uses twist-off tops for 8.6% an IBIPA? Anyway... Black as the night, lovely build brew. Great hop aroma, both pine and earthy as well as more citrus flavours. Certianly malty though, with roast and some chocolate. The real highlight of this brew is the taste though, a real explosion and just up my alley! Roast, strong bitterness, heating up in the alcoholic ending. Punchy, even for the abv. Great mouth feel, not cloying at all, partly due to the active bubbly carbonation. Very yummy indeed. I am in love with this style, and this is one of the best I’ve had. (Freshly traded with _Papou_, many thanks!)

117 IBUs mais c’est très bien dosé. Ma black IPA préféré au Québec certainement, suivi par la black IPA régulière de dunham. Très houblonné pour une black IPA, on goûte bien le côté torréfié comme dans la régulière, mais encore plus les houblons qui donne un côté très floral à l’expérience. On sent bien l’alcool. Délicieux.

Bottle from Halles St-Jean. Aroma: good balance between citrus/grapefruit aroma, coffee, chocolate and roast. App: pitch black with medium frothy beige head. Taste and palate: creamy full body, citrus/fruity taste then coffee and chocolate with heavy bitterness finish. Medium carbonation. Overall: wow! A refreshing black IPA. Definitely something that needs to be drank fresh to enjoy the balance between the fruits from the IPA and the roast from the stout.
