TheJester (2029) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2013
On tap at Volo. Too dark to see what it looks like. Probably black. I’m gonna say black. Aroma is the typical mix of chocolat/java and resiny hops. The flavour is solid, if unspectacular. But the body is great - full and creamy. Maybe some oatmeal in there?

VT (1708) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2012
Cask at Vankleek Hill’s/Beau’s Oktoberfest. A reddish/brown black ale with a short-lasting beige head. Smell is roast and chocolate. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, chocolate, caramel, molasses. Finish is quite herbal and boozey. Herbal finish is quite lingering! Body is thick, mouthfeel is sticky. No carbonation at all. Pretty good dark ale!

kevinsenn (1299) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2012
On tap at Volo. Pitch black with a thin tan head. Aroma is slightly roasty, with big fruity hops - fantastic! In the flavour we have roast, licorice, cream, hops, and a bitter finish. Big huge body. Just what a Black IPA should be!

sudomorph (783) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
On tap at Barvolo. Poured black with a mocha head that thins to a film and leaves great lacing. Aroma is roasty with floral and tropical notes.Taste is a bitter roasted with a touch of herbal on the finish.Medium body and carbonation. Slightly slick texture but fairly smooth. Drinkable but slowly. Overall tasty and drinkable. Solid flavour. Would order again for a change up.

neongolden (677) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
(On tap at Bar Volo, Mar 20 2014) Pours black with a dense, frothy tan head, some lace. Lovely aroma of chocolate/roasted malts and a lot of hops, resinous but also some fruit character, grapefruit/tropical. Flavour has somewhat sweet dark malts, moderate roast, a fair amount of resinous, grapefruit pith hop character to start. Towards the finish, moderate hop bitterness combined with some roast, fairly dry and reasonably refreshing ending. Mouthfeel is quite full and carb soft, very nice to drink. Top notch black IPA, good balance of hop and roast character. Recommended.

Draught at Volo. Opaque brown / black colour in a tulip glass. Tropical fruits in the aroma with roasted malts. Resinous. Avocado, white grapefruit, orange zest. Full bodied and chewy. Bitter flavour with ruby grapefruit, clementine orange, citrus zest, pine. Nice malt balance. Some lactose. Fruity tropical finish with mango.
