On tap at the pub. Light brown pour. Muted aroma with a hint of toast. On the palate caramel and bitter toast. Little flavour or length. Meh. brokensail (16432) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 2, 2015
On tap @ Le Saint Bock. Cola colored beer with a dense khaki head. Roast and licorice aroma. Kinda earthy and grassy. Slight blackberry. Flavor is pretty bitter and roasted malt forward. A lot of grassy hops and some earth, mild citrus, and a bit of pine. Slight ash and acidity to the finish. tom10101 (6033) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2013
On tap @ Le Saint-Bock (Montréal). Dark brown with a medium fully lasting beige head and heavy lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate and light resinous notes. Taste is about the same with a moderate bitter finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly dry finish. More on the Stout side than the Black IPA side. A tad too roasty, but still decent. Not that much drinkable though. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2013
On tap at Saint-Bock.
Pours dark brown with low beige head. Intense lacing. Aroma is of fruits, sugar, citrus, roasted malt. Taste is of roasted malt, chocolate, bitterness, slight citrus. Palate: medium body. Overall: Very stouty/porterish. This is not a good black IPA for me: not enough IPA-style. Decent per se anyways, more not more than that.

En direct de la rue St-Denis. Un verre sur place. Version à 6% d’alcool. Un liquide qui présente une robe presque noire et une mousse brune plutôt convenable. Un nez bien chocolaté et rôti avec une présence houblonnée verte et même mentholée. Des saveurs douces qui sont touchées par des notes rôties, résineuses, florales et citronnées. Une bouche normalement construite avec des bulles efficaces et une texture à la limite huileuse. Une finale dominée par des notes amèrement chocolatées.

On tap at Saint Bock. Pours a deep black with a thin to medium sized beige to tan head. Roast and a touch of gentle hops on the nose, with just the faintest paper note. Medium bodied, spicy hops right away, a bit of roast and warming alcohol. The paper note from the nose is here as well but not overly distracting. Finishes with some roast bitterness and a bit of pithiness with a touch of warming alcohol. The paper qualities intensify the longer I drink this however, detracting more heavily deeper into the pint. Unfortunate. Spab (3783) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown with average-sized tan head. Aroma is light roasty malts and citrusy hops. Flavour has mellow roastiness and a moderate citrusy hoppiness. Not a world beater, but a good black IPA. hopdog (12341) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2011
