pours pitch black with a low beige head, some retention and lacing. deep roasted malts, some lightly burnt-smoky notes, lactose-like sweetness, bitter chocolate, tingling yet warming alcohol, big piney but mostly citrusy hops. average to soft carbonation, full body - maybe too much as per drinkability, medium long citrusy finish. relatively sweet and boozy but very good offering.

Boutip (4999) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep pitch-black color ale with a generous dark color head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of bitter citrusy and resinous hops is totally dominating with some dry roasted malt also discernable. Taste is also dominated by herbal citrusy hops with some resinous notes and some dry roasted malt. Body is full with somewhat of a creamy texture with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Usually not a style that I am very fond of but this one was quite enjoyable.

solidfunk (4784) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Good. Very citrusy initial smell with lots of roast malt. Pours black with great mocha head and carpet lacing. Finishes bitter with a touch of sour. consistency is like thick citrusy fruit juice. A nice all around package, though the IPA and roasty malt don’t entirely mesh well here. Bottle from Bieres du Monde.

reebtogi (4520) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
341ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger of light brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus, pine and roasted grains with chocolate notes. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grain and citrus and pine hop bitterness balanced quite nicely. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. Very well done and highly recommended.

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!)

JulienHuxley (3807) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle. Deep brown-black pour with floaties a nice creamy mocha head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and chocolate with light pine. Hops are more present in taste, but still more roasted malts and dark chocolate. Slightly rich and almost liquorous palate, medium carbonation. This is indeed another good beer from Dunham but I prefered their regular Black IPA. This one leans more toward a hoppy imperial stout than a Black IPA.

Quelques verres à Dunham et quelques bouteilles depuis les derniers jours. Une robe bien peu différente de sa petite sœur. Une tête mousseuse du tonnerre, dense et pleine de rétention. Un nez chocolaté et rôti qui est rapidement bombardé par des conifères, des fleurs et des agrumes. Sur les papilles, un caramel foncé et des chocolats fondants qui s’offrent la folie des grandeurs houblonnées : des fleurs, de la résine, une forêt boréale et des notes citronnées comme un spectacle fort mais jamais exagéré. Un alcool qui est dangereux puisque complètement caché. En bouche, un corps superbement conditionné avec sa texture crémeuse et son pétillement délicat mais efficace. Une finale bien prenante, robuste mais intelligente sur des notes amères de houblons et de malts rôtis et chocolatés. Encore une fois, que du bonheur en provenance de ce petit village des Cantons-de-l’Est.

Pours a pitch black color with a thick brown head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt, toasted bread and citrusy hops. The flavor is very strong, yet incredibly well balanced, the roasted malt, toasted bread and citrusy do their job in unison, it’s reasonably dry and there’s a medium bitter finish. The body is medium with a slightly creamy texture and moderate carbonation. I expected something really good and I can’t say I’m disapointed, this is really good.

rodenbach99 (3396) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2013
Bouteille de 341ml. Bière noire avec une mousse collante brune. Le nez est bien houblonné, 117 IBU ça parait. Il y a du chocolat et du rôti. La bouche est surprenante, très digeste, agréable et facile. Bonne amertume, bien équilibré par le malt. Les houblons sont résineux. Un succès.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2012 Bottle (341 ml). Black with a huge creamy brown head and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, fruits, citrus, chocolate and pine. Taste is more of chocolate with roasted malt, pine and slight fruit/citrus. Medium bitterness. Medium body. Leaves a long lasting chocolate and bitter aftertaste. As good as their regular Black IPA... I really love what Dunham is doing with their line-up right now!
