COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We dont actually wish you harm but our Malvolent Imperial Black IPA will assault your taste buds with reckless abandon. Evil might be represented in its black colour. Alchol is definitely there. But simcoe columbus and centennial hops have been used in a distrubing amount to give the flavour and aroma in this behemoth Imperial Black IPA. You have been warned

Appearance: Darker brown. Full head of mocha small bubbles. Nose: Deeply roasted malts. Dark chocolate. Hints of earthy, grassy and funk. Taste: Foremostly dry and deeply dark bitter. Hints of grass and funk. Dark chocolate with just a touch of bittersweetness Body: Medium and lively Parting thoughts: A very different DIPA. Less hoppy and a lot more malt character than most.

Can in Brew Box. Big foamy head, light brown. Big aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate, maybe a hint of citrus. Quite dry and bitter, flavours of coffee, cocoa nibs, leather. Lingering tarlike taste. Cant say I am a big fan of the aftertaste.

Metalchopz (3313) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
Enjoyed at Brothers Beer. Pours a dark brown colour with a creamy mocha head, nice creamy lacing and great retention. Quite a different nose with some sourness, fruitiness, grass and hints of chocolate. The taste starts off hoppy, but the roasted malts show up in the finish. Burnt malt, coffee lingers with hints of chocolate. Dry mouthfeel. Quite a different black IPA, with the balance and charred finish.

AleRider78 (972) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2015
On tap at Brothers Beer Bistro. Pours a nice thick creamy head and has a very dark appearance, pitch black. Lacing is decent, but more sticky as you go down. Aromas are light chocolate and coffee, piney and grassy hops. Flavours are quite overwhelming at first, lots going on. We got chocolate, coffee, herbal and grassy hops, the palate finishes sort of with some vegetable notes. Also some earthy hops and mild sweet malts. Alcohol is nicely hidden and pretty much stays that way till the end. Lively carbonation. Interesting.

On tap @ Brothers Beer Bistro, Ottawa. Opaque dark brown with a khaki head. Huge hop character, leafy and earthy, pine and bitter grapefruit, with underlying burnt malts. Full bodied, very bitter finish. Excellent!
