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

ljthiessen (330) - 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.

Lubiere (9792) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2012
A deep dark black IPA with a thin creamy and lacing very dark brown head. In aroma, a smooth bitter chocolate with resinous hops, grassy and smooth. In mouth, a smooth nutty chocolate malt with resinous hops, bitter throughout, oily mouthfeel, roasted coffee in finale. On tap at Vices et Versa, Feb. 10 2012.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - 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.

Des petits bouts de caramel fondant flotte entre les habituels vapeurs de malt roti et de chocolat cafféiné. Alléché, on franchit le cap du verre, toutes lèvres dehors. L’attaque est acide, le malt rôti débarque dans la foulée, roulé dans l’amertume caractéristique de l’IPA. Le caramel s’ est barré, ou plutôt il a copulé avec le cacao et l’espresso. C’est intense, franc du collier, droite et herbeuse comme une IPA mais joueuse et suave comme une imperial stout. Jolie expression, belle bière.
