COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crafted in collaboration with our friends at Great Lakes Brewing from Toronto, buckets of black malt give this beer a deep earthy-brown colour and a huge body. Generous portions of bittering hops add balance and tip the flavour profile definitively to the hoppy side of the scale, while Belgian yeast endows the collaborative brew with a slightly spicy undertone.

Editor’s note: initially at 9.1%, went to 7.3% in 2013

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 650mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma is very roasted, with deeply roasted charred malt and a fairly prominent hop presence further back in the nose. Flavour is very rich and flavourful, with loads of dry roasted malt, balanced beautifully with the perfect amount of bitter hop presence. Extremely full-bodied, with a creamy palate that transitions beautifully from the dark roasted malt to the moderate hoppiness. No Belgian qualities that I detect. Rich and warming - executed really well to how a black IPA should. Surprisingly awesome offering from Phillips (and Great Lakes). Easily my favourite of theirs.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2015 650ml bottle. Black with thick, foamy head. Cedar smoke aroma with evergreen and doughy chewiness. Light sweetness balanced by strong, bitter hopping. Thick and full-bodied, moderate carbonation, long bitter hop finish. A truly unique creation. Pleasantly surprised.
