Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2016
Opaque black color with some visible glass clinging activity. Creamy and foamy brown 3 finger sparkling head, lasting more than 30 minutes, and creating super strong legs. Flavors of herbal hops, chocolate, orange, lemon, mocha, caramel, noble spices, faint molasses and oak. Lots of grassiness and very acidic. Creamy and slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Strong finish with a long tongue coat of chocolate piney grass. Faint sugary feel with a strong but pleasant bitterness. Overall outstanding quality craft with the best of both worlds; all the flavors of a fresh IPA and an earthy stout. Its delicious and super complex. Well intensifed, easy to drink and enjoy.

jackl (7191) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2016
Bottle @ Steasys. Thanks for sharing! Deep brown pour with a small head. Lots of rich toasty cocoa. Charred earth. Mild pepper. Flavor is similar. Peppery hop. Chocolate. Assertive charred grain. Very active carbonation hurts the drinking experience a bit.

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2015
660 ml bottle from a small dpanneur in Gatineau.

Appearance: Pours jet black with mounds of tan head. Decent retention and a fair bit of lacing.

Aroma: Strong pine and earthy hops with a hint of tea.

Flavours: Pine, grapefruit, other citrus notes with hints of coffee and roasted malt on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Thicker mouthfeel with lots of carbonation.

Overall: This is quite a good Black IPA and reminds me of Nickel Brooks Malevolent Black IPA. Lots of pine and grapefruit up front but this doesnt overpower the nice coffee/dark malt on the finish.

Draught at Boswell. Nice hop fruitiness balanced with dark malt, feels like dark chocolate with orange peel, yummy! Pretty outstanding dark brew, highly drinkable and fruit-forward.

JulienHuxley (5691) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2015
Bottle from La Barik. Dark pour, almost black but with a reddish hue, huge lacy off white foam. Aroma is super roasty, tons of very grassy hop, grass, pine, light tropical notes, some fruity hop in there as well. Taste is quite bitter, roasty and grassy flavors mostly, light light malty sweetness. Palate is med bodied, dry with good full carbonation. Tasty black IPA.

Premir brassin, du Castor. Armes de gros houblons cte ouest. Cest intense et fruit. En bouche, pas de changement, du houblon puissant, un ct black pratiquement absent. On pourrait presque dire que cest une Yakima noire. Excellente si on ne se fie quau got. Pour le "black", on repassera. Version Pit Caribou: Houblon moins goteux que le Castor. Torrfaction plus prsente et la bire semble plus ronde. Moins bonne que la version Castor mais quand mme excellente. Se rapproche plus dune black ipa par contre.
