Scopey (12681) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
Bottle thanks to Mr Kenny. Consumed at the 42nd floor tasting. It pours opaque darkest brown with a thick tan head. The nose is toasty, earthy, charred wood, sticky orange, Irn Bru and burnt cake. The taste is smooth, yet bitter, toasty, charred wood, rocky road, umami character and citrus peel with a bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bad at all.

Sammy (11216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2013
Not your conventional black ipa. Deep deep roast. Big roast wafting aroma. Big black colour with thick mocha foamy head and lace. Its hoppy for sure, but its also roasty. Hence the imperial tital. Above average mouthfeel, with a bit of near-astringency at the end of the bottle. From Veux-tu.

hopscotch (10642) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle… Cloudy, deep, dark brown pour with a small, creamy, off-white head. The nose offers caramel, deeply roasted malts and resiny, piney hops. Medium to full-bodied with relaxed carbonation. Much like the aroma, the flavor provides caramel and burnt malts. Singed, bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of MartinT!

rosenbergh (10623) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2015
341 ml bottle. Thanks to Timo A! Black color with a small tan head. Roasted malt, milky sweetness, coffee, mild bitterness and chocolate in the aroma. The flavor is hoppy bitterness, roasted malt, dark chocolate and ashy dryness. Bitterness stays. Balanced and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 My Bottom Line:
Dark chocolate-covered almonds move into caramel and conifers in this beautifully expressive Imperial Black IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces all around the blackness and its dark brown edges.
-The potent resinous hop bitterness is longlasting. It could have been softer to increase drinkability.
-I love the aromas and flavors that come from this grain bill.
-Almond skin angles are delightful.
-This can be as good as their Lapatt Robust Porter. World-class, in its category.

Bottle and on tap at Brouhaha, Vices et Versa and Hivernale des Brasseurs.

olio (9362) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2016
341 ml bottle. Bottled on 27.04.2015.
Pours very dark red, practically black color with a small off-white head. Nice roasty-coffee-hoppy thing going on on the aroma here, some dark chocolate and pine also, mild grapefruits. Quite creamy and fluffy palate, roasted bitter malts, slightly burnt, some espresso, faint licorice and pine-y hops. Quite well balanced, more like a black and tan than a BIPA, very Stout-y. Would love to have this more fresh but still excellent.
