42nd Floor Tasting. Almost opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Airy palate, modest fine carbonation. Smooth dark malts, touch of mild cream. Mild hop skunk. Little dark fruits. Mellow pine. Light dry finish. Decent but it’s smaller brother is better.

Leighton (21258) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2015
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Kenny. Pours mostly clear brown with a frothy beige head. Rich meaty dark malts, roast, cocoa, earth. Medium sweet flavor, lots of burnt cedar, baking cocoa, roast, scorched earth. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming finish, more cocoa, earth, light burnt pine resin. Not bad.

Draught at Darby’s Gastown, Vancouver
Black color with Brown head. Strong earthy character, followed by the potent roastiness, and not as much hops as in other Black IPAs, although it ends with some hops resins. Too roasty in the final for my liking.
Good, a bit too earthy (dirty) for the style.

Cask at Vices et Versa, Montreal - 03/03/12. Dark black with a decent beige head. Floral hops on the nose, some herb/spice. Hop forward in flavour with a roasted malt backbone with a little pepper/chocolate in the mix. Medium bodied, little carbonation, well balanced with a moderate to dry finish. Good stuff!

saxo (18364) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2016
Bottle @ Aarhus tasting, my place. Nice head with excellent duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are rich roast malt, chocolate, flowers, hops, pine and has a nice bitter finish.

mcberko (17845) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2013
341mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours jet black with a medium foamy light brown / tan head. Aroma is extremely roasty and harshly hoppy, with deep dark roasted malts, intense dry hops, and some burnt espresso notes. Flavour is extremely intense, with extremely darkly roasted malt, palate-scorching hops, and dry cocoa. Intensely hoppy and bitter, with a very dry palate. Robust flavour profile all around - nothing subtle here. The regular Dunham Black IPA is intense already (and excellent), and this Imperial version just amplifies it. It seems a first that this is on the border of being too harsh, but becomes more easily drinkable the more you have. This is most definitely excellent, but probably only for serious, extreme hopheads like myself.

Oakes (17684) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2017
Dark brown. Thin head. Has a woody hop note, nice chocolate, actually comes off a bit thin, but you get the berryish hop fruit, too. Good but not super great.
