RichardW (1502) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2014
Litre bottle from Jasper Wine Cellar & Liquor store. Great rich spicy aroma and taste, pouring a dark brown-black. Dry and full flavoured, with chocolate and ripe fruit notes. Bitter and roast coffee finish. Excellent.

Ipaluvr082 (53) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Good medium brown pour with fine cream head. Nose is roasty malt, chocolate, honey. This beer Tastes roasty and slightly bitter with a piney finish. Not bad, I’ll see if I still think so after the one litre bottle!

cards04 (1733) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
Well...its not black. But it has nice lacing. Aromas are malty and biscuity. Dark malts and some hop finish. Decent.

Oakes (12429) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 Med brown, earthy, woody example...lots of bitterness, wood, breadcrust...good body, just enough sweetness to make it go down well.

dreamflower (575) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
I enjoyed this at Barley Brothers in Winnipeg. Dark with lots of roastiness and some dark chocolate element. Bitter but not crazy bitter. Nice beer!

northropfrye (2203) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 30, 2014
Sweet and roasty aroma. Even some honey on the nose. Dark body plenty of lacing. Very roasty tasting in contrast to a sweeter aroma. Some hops but not a very bitter black IPA. More roast than hops especially in the aftertaste

maley1 (781) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014
Dark brown with reddish hue pour with frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, slight citrus, faint caramel and piney hops. Taste of burnt roasted malts, faint caramel, bitter hop finish. Full bodied, medium carbonation, long bitter cloying finish.

dslam (43) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Good amount of slightly tan head. Pours as a dark redish brown. Almost feels like this beer is bitter to punish me. Fairly lasting taste so I opted to eat some Korean food while I drank this beer. Would recommend with strong flavourful food but not by itself.

pictoman (493) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Poured from 1L bottle. Very dark brown with off-white head. Aroma of herbal hops. Roasty hoppy flavour.

presario (4611) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
Stop rating for most of a year and everything is new again. Thick off-white foam on dark reddish-brown liquid has a gathering storm quality. Sweetish aroma with hints of hickory, fruit, bark and caramel. Smooth and easy drinking with a building flavor through the sip. Best part is a tasty bitter herb hop finish with a trace of licorice.
