That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Thanks to Fiona. Hazy deep amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Thin dark malts. Some alcohol spice. Modest pine hops. Floral bitterness. Some mild citric peel. Light finish. Not bad, perhaps a little overcooked alcohol wise.

Premières effluves de caramel, de toffee avec un soupçon d’agrumes et de mélasse. Olfactif penchant plutôt vers les accents maltés. De couleur brune foncée aux reflets rubis, elle développe une grosse mousse brune, dense et rocailleuse qui persiste de longues minutes. En bouche, le caramel suave domine l’attaque, laissant s’échapper des notes d’alcool et une finale légèrement résineuse. La torréfaction est juste à point avec une touche de café et de chocolat noir. La finale est amère et les notes de résine sont rehaussées et réchauffées par l’alcool. Sa texture huileuse contribue à son équilibre des saveurs et en fait une bière qui se savoure à chaque gorgée. Plus maltée qu’houblonnée, elle demeure quand même une excellente BIPA, extrêmement goûteuse.

It pours opaque dark brown with amber highlights; the head was mocha and foamy. The aroma has notes of: crackers, chocolate, and toast. The taste is lightly sweet and finishes dry and lightly bitter; the aforementioned aroma notes comes through in the taste. The palate is medium bodied, with medium carbonation, with a slick bitter long finish. Overall, it’s really quite tasty.

650ml  bottle poured into a shaker glass. Pours black with a beige frothy head.  Has an aroma of berries and dark chocolate.   Tastes of dark chocolate, roasted malts, and coffee with fruity notes.  Medium creamy body, with a mild bitterness.  It’s a great IPA-stout mash up.

QcBeer (134) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
En versant la bouteille, une bonne couche de mousse vient s’installer sur ce liquide noir, mais qui devient rouge vin avec le reflet de lumière! Un nez de chocolat/vanille, caramel et malt torréfié! En bouche, le chocolat, le café torréfié, un sentiment de goût fumé qui vient jouer avec le houblonnage en milieu de bouche! Un arrière goût café, caramélisé qui vient s’entremêler avec une amertume paisible au palais!

A beautiful pour, black, but with deep brown hi-lights in the light. Off-white head. On the nose there is roasty malts, grassy hops, and dark chocolate. Tastes are a surprising amount of dark chocolate, over some nice slightly bitter hops. Slightly resiny. This is like a stout and an IPA had a beautiful baby. Love it.
