Can: Thanks, Corey! Black center, some deep brown around the edges, topped with a light, leathery tan head that transcends quickly to a foamy collar. Aroma has notes of light roast, chocolate, pine needles, some dank hop oils, mild bitter citrus peels, & some spicy, ashy hop notes in the back-end. Taste is more malt heavy & actually has a fairly apparent sweetness up front... burnt caramel, mild roast & char, a hint of sweet chocolate. Mid-palate, things switch from malty to hoppy; bitter grapefruit pith & orange zest, sticky pines, & floral bitterness, leading into a lasting finish full of both hoppy notes & slick, toasted malt sugars. Would never guess this one was nearly 10% ABV... Very enjoyable black IPA, a style that can be very hit or miss. This one’s a little sweeter than most, certainly not a bad thing.

tom10101 (2767) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Can. From Andrew, thanks! Dark brown with a small beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of mocha, roasted malt, chocolate, raisins notes and earthy presence. Taste is moderately sweet with piney notes, mocha, chocolate and light raisins. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Moderately dry finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Decent drinkability. Tasty stuff, but too heavy in flavors for my liking.

Luk_ (120) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Can. Black-brown pour with mocha head. Aroma feels artificial like the bad Founders. Some coffee, nuts, mocha and a hint of hoppiness. Taste is nutty, mollasses, some roastiness ad light grassiness. Not my type.

Keg at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, green session. 03/05/2014. Dark black / caramel coloured pour with a lasting sticky tan head. Aroma is nice big piney hop, resinous, varnish, and just a touch of roast. Flavour is dark malt, pine, resin, some citrus hops. Palate is clean, chalky high carbonation. Really good black IPA.

DuffMan (6743) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Can. Hilarious label that reminds me of a drawing that Napoleon Dynamite would do. Thickly hoppy and malty, dank wet green hop character, hearty roasted malts. Dense and delicious.
