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!

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.

Douberd (3992) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2015
(Dunham Imperial Black IPA) Bottle 341 ml at home, served into a teku, ABV 8.6% Black coloured body, one full finger of dark beige head on top, thick and with very good retention. Smells great, citrus, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, all blending nicely together. Taste is mildly bitter, with roasted malts and plenty of citrus, hops, ash, well hidden alcohol, coffee. Medium thin body, good carbonation, very dry on the palate. Very good!

Marheb (3896) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Une soupe riche chocolatée qui, soudainement asséchée par des houblons herbacés, se métamorphose en ipa étoffée et assez facile à boire.

rodenbach99 (3759) - 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.

Eructoblaster (3541) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle - 341ml. Pours an opaque black body with a thin, lasting beige creamy head. Rich, complex malty/hoppy aroma with grainy, cocoa, and coffeish hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries roasty and woody notes. Ends with a robust, long, bitter/roasty finish. Very well done.

probstblueribbon (3498) - 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.

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.
