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!

probstblueribbon (3053) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cool in a tulip glass. 20DE12.

App.: Deep brown-black with a nice deep mocha head. Aroma: Chocolate, coffee, dark-roasted malts, leafy, dank hops, slightly ashen, very deep and dark, like a big, stern Impy Stout with extra hops. Palate: Medium+ body, sparse effervescence. Flav.: Big dark chocolate and coffee, plenty of leafy, dank/pine hops, quite dry and stern, big stuff, nice and certainly not for amateurs!; dry with really big bitterness and a long-lasting, dark-roasted malt and dank/pine hops finish.

Black IPA are bewildering and highly variable. Imperial BIPAs are almost twice as bewildering and variable! I enjoyed this as a big, slow sipper.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2012
Dêgustée en fût au Vices-Versa. De couleur noire-brune et opaque. Nez de chocolat noir avec des traces de chocolat au lait, de malt rôti, de houblon herbeux, moyennement résineuses et aux notes citriques avec des traces de crème brûlée. Moyenne-ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse. Faibles notes de crème brûlée accompagné d’une moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux aux notes citriques (présent en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt assez rõti, un moyen goût de chocolat noir et des notes de pain grillé puis en finale l’amertume de houblon est plus herbeuse, moyennement asséchante et résineuse. Post-goût long et plutôt sec, moyennement amer de rôti, de houblon herbeux aux notes résineuses et citriques avec des notes de chocolat. (25 mars 2012)

Quevillon (2548) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2012
Drank at the 2012 Winter Warmer Montreal, on February 25. Black, small head. Hoppy aroma of coffee, green herbs notes. Roasted malt flavor, slightly bitter, alcohol very, very bitter. Not bad but it’s under the standard!

cfrancis (2498) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours black with a dark brown head. Aroma is dark roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Small cascade hop aroma. Taste is mostly roasted malts and hop bitterness. Missing the big hop flavouring but still a good beer.

Marheb (2297) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2014
Une soupe riche chocolatée qui, soudainement asséchée par des houblons herbacés, se métamorphose en ipa étoffée et assez facile à boire.

mds (2240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2014
Draught at Vices & Versa in Montreal.
Pours pitch black with a small off-white head. Smells of chocolate and roast. Flavour is pretty much the same along with a fair dose of alcohol warmth. Very bitter finish. Overall it’s quite enjoyable. 2014-05-31

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2012
Sample from cask at Winter Warmer 2012.
Appearance : Black with creamy pale brown head.
Aroma : Great citrusy and floral hops. Oily and piny. Roasted malt with some coffee.
Taste : Great oily and resinous hops. Citrusy and piny. Nice roasted malt. Finish oily and juicy hops.
Palate : Nice cask conditioning, really soft and creamy.
Overall : Wow really good. Even better since the cask conditioning was exemplary. Great sharp hops all around well balanced with the roasted malt. Great finish. The regular black IPA is awesome and this one was also pretty good. I’d need a full serving to make a fair rating.
