Pours deep dark with thick brown head. Nose is Aromas are roasty malts, dark fruits, raisin, pine resin and coffee.Oily texture, low carbonation. Long bitter end piney finish. Well balanced, nice mix between roastiness and piney notes. Excellent black IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Au nez, étonnement houblonnée pour une bière ce cette couleur foncée. Une mouse très, très durable qui nous mettrait probablement knockedout si on la recevait sur la gueule! Le liquide est amère et torréfié. La description du "café salé et malt" est bien choisie. Une bière pour amateurs de bière foncées et torréfiées, ce qui n’est malheureusement pas mon cas.

yourilevesque (486) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2015
Bière noire comme la nuit à la robe visiblement de faible densité et légère. La mousse est opaque, subite et puissante mais éphémère. En se résorbant, celle-ci laisse de magnifiques dentelles; témoignage de son passage. Beaucoup d’herbe, de foin, de la terre mouillée et des parfums de moisson. Grande légèreté en bouche pour une IIPA qui si elle avait été américaine, aurait été outrageusement houblonnée j’en suis convaincu. Les houblons discrets laissent une grande place aux malts torréfiés qui confère à cette bière une belle rondeur malgré ce corps léger. J’aime les black IIPA européennes!

hrabren (249) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 19, 2015
Black with small tan head. Malts and fresh coffee. Some dry fruits in the background. Light coffee with milk in the beginning, malts develop, dry finish, some hops. Coffee not overwhelming. Soft, creamy, full body. Complex.

shoulderbroken (2842) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2015
Tap at Mikkeller and Friends. Almost refreshing. Big coffee aroma and taste. Aroma is roasty and bit of pine. Quite fresh. Little bit milky. Touch of spice. Very nice.

Goût café froid très prononcé, couleur noire dense, peu de mousse, assurément une des meilleures dans ce style, si ce n’est la meilleure

Dark brown Rich espresso stout, sweet (lactose?, chocolate?), little bit boozy. You can recognise the typical french coffee. REcommended

mathieuc (2284) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
Pours a really dark brown with a medium tan head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of green hops, roasted malt, caramel and coffee. A light alcohol presence also but what do you expect from a 10% black IIPA? Taste is moderately sweet and bitter, offers lactose, coffee, chocolate and resinous hops. Body is quite full and carbonation low to medium. Alcohol is noticeable but not overly so. Rich and smooth. Overall a really nice black IIPA, it really deserves all the attention it is getting!

Hooooooly man this was good. Pours black with a tan thick head. Aroma of coffee and hops. Strong espresso flavor, with a nice balance of hops, finishes smooth. The 9.9% ABV is actually disguised by the strong espresso flavor really well.
