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.

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!

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!

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.

Fred82 (2093) - 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.

Une soupe riche chocolatée qui, soudainement asséchée par des houblons herbacés, se métamorphose en ipa étoffée et assez facile à boire.

Merci Martin! Après s’être établi à partir de la fête de Noël avec un bon livre, je tire à sa fin avec ce breuvage agréable. Un nez léger de chocolat reste en place tant que le houblon se lever lentement. Fin d’enroulement intermigles laçage avec des lignes quaff. Le corps est singulièrement modéré et tarte générale. Terminer s’estompe à partir du corps principal. Ma première impression asider de cette bière noire de l’IPA est assez sombre. Cette bière n’est pas sombre. Il, cher lecteur est bien équilibré et facilement consommable. Profitez si vous pouvez le trouver.

Bouteille 341 ml. 8%. Couleur noire comme la nuit, mousse brune épaisse. Arôme de café noir, chocolat, houblon frais. Très veloutée en bouche, notes de houblons, espresso, chocolat noir, malt, agrumes du houblon. Amertume très présence en finale.

341 ml bottle. Pours an opaque black (although somewhat sediment-filled) with a beige-brown head that lasted forever, almost until after I cleaned the glass (barely kidding, here). Smell is herbal hops, mocha, grapefruit. Taste is coffee and roast. Finish is tons upon tons of bitterness. Citrus, black coffee, coffee grains, herbal. I do not recollect ever having such a bitter black ale. Some warm, boozey feeling after the finish. Very strong body, creamy mouthfeel. Extremely solid black IPA, although may be somewhat unbalanced. Not for the uninitiated to the style.
