ardeo (399) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2016
Bouteille 33. Bière presque noire à mousse beige abondante. Au premier nez : arômes de fruits jaunes, de pêche, de résine puis caramel, chocolat et (en retrait) café. En bouche le chocolat est très présent, explose. La rondeur + saveur + amertume dans un équilibre parfait en font une bière superbe que je vais certainement adopter : quel cocktail, quel régal !

Lore (2671) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 20, 2016
practically black colour, huge, dense brown head, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of roasted malts, coffee, milk chocolate, citruses, hints of ash, liqueur and resiny notes; taste of dark chocolate, heavy roasted coffee, citrusy notes and some resins; surprisingly creamy mouthfeel; excellent black IPA!

Achetée au brouhaha à Gatineau. Belle couleur noire. Effervescence mousseuse. Senteur d’anis, clou de giroffe. Geuzasse. Picotement. Gout rend bien ce qu’ils annonce. Très beau produit.

Bottle. Rich aroma of roasted grains, cherry, and licorice. Great taste, well balanced roasty fruity and bitter. Very good.

manuelMTL (240) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
From 341 ml bottle in tulip. This beer pours a black liquid with a huge frothy brown head. The nose is full of roasted malts and grassy hops. Some citrus and grapefruit hop notes and caramel aromas come through as well. The taste is first a light malty sweetness and grassy aromas. The huge resinous bitterness and the coffee notes then take over and stay for a long time. Excellent beer with lots of strong stout and IPA character!

I really enjoyed the Dunham Black IPA, so I picked up a sixer of the Imperial Black IPA on faith. Best. Purchase. Ever. Date on the package is Oct. 23, so this stuff is fresh as hell (and it shows). Overall it’s basically a turbocharged version of the Black IPA: more malt profile, more hops, more booze. Nose is dark chocolate/cocoa, caramel, molasses with this amazing, fragrant grapefruit/pine/floral hop punch. Taste is a beautiful, heavy, chocolaty imperial stout hopped to the gills, with a big citrus/pine/floral hop finish. It’s definitely bitter, but it’s so wonderfully balanced with the malt that the bitterness isn’t overwhelming at all, nor is the malt. (The 8.6% alcohol is beyond unnoticed.) The review below that describes this as 90% dark chocolate with grapefruit is bang on. I think this just became my favourite beer on earth.

Who the hell uses twist-off tops for 8.6% an IBIPA? Anyway... Black as the night, lovely build brew. Great hop aroma, both pine and earthy as well as more citrus flavours. Certianly malty though, with roast and some chocolate. The real highlight of this brew is the taste though, a real explosion and just up my alley! Roast, strong bitterness, heating up in the alcoholic ending. Punchy, even for the abv. Great mouth feel, not cloying at all, partly due to the active bubbly carbonation. Very yummy indeed. I am in love with this style, and this is one of the best I’ve had. (Freshly traded with _Papou_, many thanks!)

ignorant (113) - madrid, SPAIN - MAY 3, 2016
Beer black with beige foam abundant and good retention. Malt aroma, roasted, resin, coffee and licorice. Entry into oily mouth with notes of dark malt, hops coffee and herbaceous. dry aftertaste. good body. Very rich.

lefossoyeur (613) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2012
On tap & cask @ Winter Warmer 2012. Pitch black with a big moka head. Nose is moka coffee and citrussy hops. Big, full body, almost an impy stout mouthfeel with loads of chocolate, brownies, roasted cereals with a big bitter finish that lasts for a while. Really loved it.

lesifflebiere (1874) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
Dunham a fait des différentes déclinaisons de IPA sa spécialité, et ça parait ici ; une IPA noire très costaude, épaisse et fortement houblonnée, tout en laissant de la place aux grains grillés. Elle chiffre à 117 IBU (sans surprise), et touche la cible à tous les paliers de l’analyse : odeurs franches de houblon et de café, chocolat et amertume tenace en bouche, finale tout en houblons et brûlé. Elle est totalement à la hauteur.
