blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
[Draught at Station Ho.st, Montreal] Pours black with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasty and hoppy first and foremost followed by coffee and chocolate. In the flavour the hops hit you first followed by roasted malt, coffee, dark fruit and chocolate. Some alcohol there but not too bad. Medium bodied. Pretty good stuff.

On tap at hopfenstark in montreal. Jet black pour, big mocha head. I thought they had poured me the wrong beer. Aroma of pine resins, and lots of roasted malts with some charred coffee and soy. Creamy mouth feel, and soft carb. The finish is quite bitter with alot of char and roasty malts, with more pine resins. Double ipa?! This is american hoppy imperial stout if you ask me.

cargo150 (580) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Bière de couleur noire avec un col moyen plutôt résistant. Nez complexe de malt grillée de fruits et de houblons résineux. En bouche les aromes sont très complexe allant du fruits jusqu’au houblons avec une finale assez amère et huileuse grace au noix de coco. Une très bonne impérial black IPA, très complexes et bien balancé. Devrait aussi être en bouteille!

Un nez vanille vraiment incroyable! Au goût, on retrouve la vanille, mais aussi la torréfaction qui donne un résultat de sucré brûlé vraiment très bon. un finale légèrement amère. Une véritable réussite!

Des malts rôtis surmontés d’un voile de houblons exotiques et d’une profondeur vanillée dans un liquide un brin liquoreux.

solidfunk (4013) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Dominant aromas here are hops, roast malt and light hint of booze. Pretty well-balanced for a forceful beer like this. Pours black with good head and lacing. Finishes bitter with some sweetness from booze and caramel. Tap at brewpub.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2013
2013-10-04. Black body modest tan head. 3++ Aroma is hoppy and boozy, nice dark malt, touch of brown sugar. Flavour is fairly bitter, sweetish dark malt in the middle. Green hops, moderate alcohol, lightly herbal/licorice like character lingers. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Solid. The alcohol is prominent but not obnoxiously so. Surprisingly drinkable actually, very nice. On tap at BDT, Gatineau

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
My Bottom Line :
Roasted malts, coconut sweetness, molasses-like dessert flavors and hop resins meld in this original strong ale.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the darkness.
-The mouthfeel is rich but avoids being cloying.
-There is a lot of flavor in here, verging on overdose, but everything is well balanced and intelligently presented.
-Alcohol heat warms up each sip.
-Very nice collaboration brew. Seemed ambitious on paper, but everything is well balanced and the execution is very professional.

On tap at the brewpub.
