UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 Another one of Dunham very good beer! Coffee, chocolate, roasty. Great looking beer, very dark, and a nice long lasting dark caramel head. 117 IBU, very hoppy, and you can taste all of them! A very good Imperial Black IPA, totally enjoyed it.

[Bottle (341ml)] Pours a very dark brown with an average size lasting frothy beige head. Some lacing. Aroma of leafy hops, vanilla, nuts, toasted malt and chocolate. Flavour of toasted malt, chocolate, leafy hops, nuts, a hint of alcohol and a nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. A well done Black IPA.

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

This is amazing. How can something high in abv and heavily hopped be so smooth? Aromas and flavors of coffee, dark chocolate, and a smooth hoppy finish. Excellence in a glass.

Pours a dark brown, edging on black. Very thick off-white head. Aromas of citrus, strong pine, and caramel. Give that glass a swish and you’ll, pick up some pineapple. Tastes of chocolate mocha, coffee, and a hint of pine from the hops no doubt. Overall, it is a battle of chocolatey malts, and piney hops. Very enjoyable.

ljthiessen (329) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
On tap at Barley Brothers, Winnipeg. Black pour with a nice brown head, good retention. Tried immediately after Dunham's regular black IPA. Somehow less hop character here, but some nice roasty cocoa notes come out. Full-bodied, slightly boozy and very creamy smooth. Some coffee and vanilla notes in the flavour. I quite liked this - tastes more like a hoppy imperial stout. Which I love.

A great brew! Pours out a completely dark black with a frothy slightly yellowish head that coats the glass in a fine layer of lacework. The nose is heavily hopped and citrus smelling with big boisterous pine resin aromas. Tons of roasty notes and espresso aromas also fill the nose. The mid palate has a solid roasted malt character with some dark chocolate and smoky espresso notes. The finish has big intense hop flavour with grapefruit, apricot and pineapple standing out amongst sticky pine resins. A good balance between roast and hop overall with a heavy astringent aftertaste.

341ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger of light brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus, pine and roasted grains with chocolate notes. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grain and citrus and pine hop bitterness balanced quite nicely. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. Very well done and highly recommended.

Bière noire comme la nuit, totalement opaque avec quelques particules, effervescence impossible à observer, et surmontée d’un col brun, mince mais très dense, et qui colle sur les parois du verre. Arômes à la fois maltés et houblonnés, malt torréfié, café, grains rôtis, pain grillé. Le houblon apporte un nez principalement floral et épicé, poivré, mais avec également des notes plus herbacées, végétales et terreuses. On peut également déceler certaines odeurs de fumée, ainsi qu’une touche de levure apportant des effluves de cuir. Le nez est adéquatement complexe, bien intense et bien agréable. En bouche, pétillement moyen sur la langue, excellente onctuosité au palais, le breuvage est rond et soyeux! Au goût, l’entrée en bouche apporte une étonnante saveur de riche chocolat noir que le nez n’avait pas laissé présager. Beaucoup de malt torréfié en bouche donc, expresso, grains rôtis, pain (très) grillé, cacao… Le houblon prend ensuite progressivement l’avant-plan, celui-ci étant principalement floral mais également légèrement poivré et végétal, nous amenant à une finale à l’amertume élevée et fort agréable. Haute intensité en bouche, belle complexité, très bonne intégration des différentes saveurs entre elles, excellent équilibre! Cette bière représente, sur ce dernier point, une grande amélioration sur la Dunham Black IPA de base, grâce à un maltage que je considère beaucoup plus adéquat. Excellent produit!
