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.

tricksta_p (3617) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2016
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!

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.

mathieuc (3375) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
On tap at Le Projet, pours a nice black with a medium beige head that leaves great lacing. Aroma is piny and roasted, feeling overall really fresh. Taste is of course bitter but not harsh, medium-high and clean. Flavors are spicy, fresh and almost minty. Roasted malt is kept in check, plays a supporting role. Body was medium, carbonation once again too high. Another great beer by Dunham!

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)

cfrancis (3161) - 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.
