MarcoDL (3980) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle. Aroma of passion fruit and roasted malt. Flavor has lots of tropical fruit, like passion fruit and citrus. Some coffee and licorice as well. Strong taste, like it. Good beer.

Eructoblaster (3806) - 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 (3700) - 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.

shoulderbroken (3664) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2015
Tap at MLF. Very nice smell, classic black ipa, cocoa, roasty, pine, little bit of peppery spiciness. Taste is very nice too. More subtle than the aroma. Light chocolate and roast to start then the finish is hoppy, pine and citrus but with the chocolate still bubbling under. Hides the strength well.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2012
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.

Bottle at home. Aroma is coffee, big roasted malt, cocoa, fruity hops, pine resin, dark chocolate, grapefruit, notes of liquorice. Flavour is moderate sweet and medium bitter. Body is full. Very nice, potent bittersweet flavour with a roasty coffee resinous hoppy aroma. Tasty stuff!

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, 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)
