une bière qui a du caractère, son amertume prononcé vous choque à la première gorgée mais par la suite les aromes de céréales et de caramel prennent le dessus. Une black IPA à découvrir, une des meilleurs faite au Québec!

Pours an opaque black with spotty light brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, malty sweetness, balanced alcohol, and citrus. Taste is made up of roasted malts, citrus, sweet maltiness, grassy, and some alcohol.

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours an opaque black with a big frothy brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, slight citrus hops and sweet caramel sugar. Taste is candi sugar, roasted malts, grassy hops and and nice alcohol warming on the finish mixed with a smooth bitterness throughout. Medium high carbonation and an excellent blend of malts and hops and high alcohol make this beer a beauty.

Big pine, and boozy aroma with a hint of caramel and roasted coffee. A hint of dark flavors but dominated by hops. A nice hop forward style but not terribly balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Imperial Balck IPA, not bad. With 85 IBU and 10% alc, you don’t really taste them. Caramel/chocolate/coffee taste and a bit of floral hops, it’s a decent black IPA but not sure about the Imperial part ;-) Not one of the best black IPA from Quebec, but a good one nonetheless. I will need to try it again.

Le Naufrageur prend contrôle des lignes du Brouhaha 2013 - Bière à l’apparence douteuse: couleur de mélasse, opaque mais qui présente une étrange précipitation de particules en suspension, sous un épais col moucheté des mêmes particules. Des arômes verts de cacao et de résine. Elle est relativement amère. De texture râpeuse son corps est robuste, effervescence moyenne et une fin sur une texture déplaisante... Faudra regoûter une autre fois!

500 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown-black with a nice, thick mocha head. Aroma: Very rich and sweet chocolate, black licorice and deep molasses notes, pretty decent pine/resin hops, maybe a bit floral and hoppy?, a touch of eucalyptus, quite deep, dark and delicious. Palate: Medium-full body, very relaxed effervescence. Flav.: Lots of deep dark chocolate, a little black coffee, a good hit of resinous, leafy, eucalyptus hops, molasses and licorice abound, big stuff; dry with good bitterness and a long, inky, deep malt, somewhat hoppy finish.

In a blind tasting, I’d call this a very hoppy Impy Stout. It is hard to say what is appropriate for a IBIPA, since the style doesn’t exist!

lesifflebiere (1332) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
Une black IPA costaude, mais pas trop agressive ; ses 10% d’alcool sont presqu’imperceptibles, l’amertume (85 IBU) est très supportable, et les saveurs grillées et torréfiées sont bien présentes mais contenues par le complexe mélange de saveurs. Une belle réussite, qui a ses petits défauts (on l’aurait voulu plus audacieuse encore), mais elle est un réel petit plaisir en fin de ligne.
