We don’t 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

Rasmus40 (21294) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2017
Can from Saveur Biere. Almost black with a brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt and moderate hoppy - citrus. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. 010817

fiulijn (20604) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Tasting at Matt’s, can
Dark brown color, medium sized head. Aroma of pungent hops, a bit cheesy too; atypical but interesting. Nice dark malts, dry but chocolatey, with a gourmet coffee side; massive amount of hops that provide a lot of pungent resins, some bitter orange peel. A bit dusty.
Aggressive, very good.

mcberko (18068) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
500mL can, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours black with a small brown head. Nose brings out lots of roasted malt upfront, with some chalky notes and only a slight bit of hops. Flavour brings out earthy caramel malt, and piney hops, only a touch of roast. Very well-balanced and not harsh in any way. Finishes with a touch of caramel. Very good.

FatPhil (16367) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 11, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 473ml can (Alus Celle, Riga) (6:4:5:3:11=2.9)
Spicy nettley roasty aroma. Taste also - a harsh roasty messy taste. Rough hops. A mess. Does have some boost... is that a good thing?

Ferris (15901) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle - Pure hop heaven, pine, grapefruit and earthy. Jet black thin brown head. Creamy mouthfeel, nice bitterness that ties on well with booze burn. All hops and some anise. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Benzai (15873) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2017
Can @ Anti-carnaval Tasting. Opaque black color, medium sized off-white to beige head. Aroma is malts, dark malts, hops. Taste malts, hops, dark malts,

Lubiere (13954) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
A deep dark IPA with a thick lacing brown head. In aroma, loads of fruity and citrusy floral hops with catty resinous notes, fragrant and delicious. In mouth, a sweet delicious chocomalt with floral resinous hops, grapefruit, mentol, lingering and smooth.

crossovert (13080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2017
473ml can. Dark brown/black pour. Aroma is cinnamon and peppery, piney. Flavor is acidic, woodsy, peppery, herbal. Heavy bitterness. Strong in malt. Makes me miss this style.

Sammy (12346) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2013
On tap at Bar Hop. Hits the style, biased towards roasty beer with some mineral hops. Interesting. Above average carbonation and body.

jercraigs (10591) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
2013-04-19. Black body with a huge tan head. 4+ Pleasant green leafy hop aroma. Dusty cocoa undertones. 7++ Flavour is similar, nuanced layers of green leafy hops and soft roasty dark malt. Whispers of cocoa in the background. 7++ very smooth average plus bodied palate. 4+ Lovely, much better and more complex than expected. Probably the best beer they have done so far imho.
