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.

Bottle from Halles St-Jean. Aroma: good balance between citrus/grapefruit aroma, coffee, chocolate and roast. App: pitch black with medium frothy beige head. Taste and palate: creamy full body, citrus/fruity taste then coffee and chocolate with heavy bitterness finish. Medium carbonation. Overall: wow! A refreshing black IPA. Definitely something that needs to be drank fresh to enjoy the balance between the fruits from the IPA and the roast from the stout.

Aroma is a deep earthiness with slight citrus and hay notes. Light carbonation. Taste is a sweet roastiness which is met by a fairly pronounced deep hop body. The bitterness does dissipate very smoothly. A very well balanced IPA overall. Appearance is black with a white creamy head that retains well.

I really enjoyed the Dunham Black IPA, so I picked up a sixer of the Imperial Black IPA on faith. Best. Purchase. Ever. Date on the package is Oct. 23, so this stuff is fresh as hell (and it shows). Overall it’s basically a turbocharged version of the Black IPA: more malt profile, more hops, more booze. Nose is dark chocolate/cocoa, caramel, molasses with this amazing, fragrant grapefruit/pine/floral hop punch. Taste is a beautiful, heavy, chocolaty imperial stout hopped to the gills, with a big citrus/pine/floral hop finish. It’s definitely bitter, but it’s so wonderfully balanced with the malt that the bitterness isn’t overwhelming at all, nor is the malt. (The 8.6% alcohol is beyond unnoticed.) The review below that describes this as 90% dark chocolate with grapefruit is bang on. I think this just became my favourite beer on earth.

341ml bottle. Black pour with a thick frothy tan head. Flavors are toasted bread, roasted malts, chocolate, citrus and resinous hops with grassy and spicy notes. Generous bitterness. Full body, moderate carbonation, creamy texture.

RickTheRick (460) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
Une bière d’un noir sans équivoque se laisse dominer par une épaisse mousse moka laissant derrière elle une filée de dentelle sur les parois du verre. Imaginez des cocottes de houblons enduites d’une sauce au chocolat au lait et vous obtenez sensiblement le bouquet de cette bière. Ces houblons résineux et collants tapissent le palais (et les lèvres) et sont en symbiose avec les malts torréfiés et chocolatés. La carbonatation est douce et la texture en bouche est assez crémeuse. La finale est très longue, une amertume en provenance des houblons et des céréales grillées étant en grande partie responsable.

From 341 ml bottle in tulip. This beer pours a black liquid with a huge frothy brown head. The nose is full of roasted malts and grassy hops. Some citrus and grapefruit hop notes and caramel aromas come through as well. The taste is first a light malty sweetness and grassy aromas. The huge resinous bitterness and the coffee notes then take over and stay for a long time. Excellent beer with lots of strong stout and IPA character!

blankboy (6263) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
[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.
