MartinT (9499) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 My Bottom Line:
Dark chocolate-covered almonds move into caramel and conifers in this beautifully expressive Imperial Black IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces all around the blackness and its dark brown edges.
-The potent resinous hop bitterness is longlasting. It could have been softer to increase drinkability.
-I love the aromas and flavors that come from this grain bill.
-Almond skin angles are delightful.
-This can be as good as their Lapatt Robust Porter. World-class, in its category.

Bottle and on tap at Brouhaha, Vices et Versa and Hivernale des Brasseurs.

czar (8089) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2012
pours pitch black with a low beige head, some retention and lacing. deep roasted malts, some lightly burnt-smoky notes, lactose-like sweetness, bitter chocolate, tingling yet warming alcohol, big piney but mostly citrusy hops. average to soft carbonation, full body - maybe too much as per drinkability, medium long citrusy finish. relatively sweet and boozy but very good offering.

solidfunk (7881) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Good. Very citrusy initial smell with lots of roast malt. Pours black with great mocha head and carpet lacing. Finishes bitter with a touch of sour. consistency is like thick citrusy fruit juice. A nice all around package, though the IPA and roasty malt don’t entirely mesh well here. Bottle from Bieres du Monde.

nimbleprop (7625) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 15, 2016
6oz pour at Eat Bar DC pours a murky black with some spitty, beige head. Nose is a mix of malt, bread crust, some rubber, toast, light coffee grounds, dried citrus rind, pine. Flavor follows, chewy grains and bread, pine, soap, dried citrus peel. Chewy, full bodied finish. Good, but I might like this even more if the abv was dialed back a bit.

blankboy (7354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
[Bottle (341ml)] Pours a very dark brown with an average size lasting frothy beige head. Some lacing. Aroma of leafy hops, vanilla, nuts, toasted malt and chocolate. Flavour of toasted malt, chocolate, leafy hops, nuts, a hint of alcohol and a nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. A well done Black IPA.
