Pours deep, dark black, almost opaque. Thin, foamy tan head, low retention and no lacing. Aroma is pine, resin, molasses, and fresh roasted coffee. Taste is bitter, resinous, and earthy. Finishes bitter,roasty and lingering. Body is medium, texture is slightly oily, carbonation is soft. Pretty good. I’m happy to see this style slowly become more common.

Aroma is clove, citrus, caramel, roasted malts and caramel. Taste is similar to aroma with some added bitterness that is fairly well balanced. Appearance is a black body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well. vadie (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Noir avec un col moyen beige/marron. L’arôme du chocolat, même un peu de vanille, et houblon un peu floral mais surtout du pin. Le goût est du chocolat et malt torréfié. C’est super bien équilibré avec d’houblon centennial. patricks110 (2486) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 26, 2014
Pours a deep, dark black with a thin beige head. The nose is a bit floral and herbal with a metallic note and a moderate roasted malt and hints of toffee and nuts. A bit sweet and a bit malty with toffee and chocolate. The finish has a bit of bitterness and a nice lingering hop flavour profile. Overall a great little brew with some nice flavours.

Bottle - Roasty and sweet piney hops. Deep jet brown black with a rich light brown head. Roast and chocolate with some nice bitterness and hops in the finish. Decent.

341ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger of off-white head that leaves spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains with some grapefruit and pine. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a light chocolate malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. A nicely done black IPA that needs to be sampled.

Fruity citrus aroma, dark malts give some coffee flavours, viscosity is medium, a nice standard black IPA but missing that hop profile where you can pick out special flavours. Quite good, though. mcberko (17205) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
650mL bottle, pours near-black with a small beige head. Aroma of light roast, caramel malt and some mild hop presence. Flavour brings out dry coffee, light roast, some woody hops and a bit of caramel. Quite dry and well-balanced, but lacking much depth or oomph. Solid stuff.
