Thatll be me 20K then @ ChrisOs. Thanks to Fiona. Hazy deep amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Thin dark malts. Some alcohol spice. Modest pine hops. Floral bitterness. Some mild citric peel. Light finish. Not bad, perhaps a little overcooked alcohol wise.

Premires effluves de caramel, de toffee avec un soupon dagrumes et de mlasse. Olfactif penchant plutt vers les accents malts. De couleur brune fonce aux reflets rubis, elle dveloppe une grosse mousse brune, dense et rocailleuse qui persiste de longues minutes. En bouche, le caramel suave domine lattaque, laissant schapper des notes dalcool et une finale lgrement rsineuse. La torrfaction est juste point avec une touche de caf et de chocolat noir. La finale est amre et les notes de rsine sont rehausses et rchauffes par lalcool. Sa texture huileuse contribue son quilibre des saveurs et en fait une bire qui se savoure chaque gorge. Plus malte quhoublonne, elle demeure quand mme une excellente BIPA, extrmement goteuse.

It pours opaque dark brown with amber highlights; the head was mocha and foamy. The aroma has notes of: crackers, chocolate, and toast. The taste is lightly sweet and finishes dry and lightly bitter; the aforementioned aroma notes comes through in the taste. The palate is medium bodied, with medium carbonation, with a slick bitter long finish. Overall, its really quite tasty.

QcBeer (158) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
En versant la bouteille, une bonne couche de mousse vient sinstaller sur ce liquide noir, mais qui devient rouge vin avec le reflet de lumire! Un nez de chocolat/vanille, caramel et malt torrfi! En bouche, le chocolat, le caf torrfi, un sentiment de got fum qui vient jouer avec le houblonnage en milieu de bouche! Un arrire got caf, caramlis qui vient sentremler avec une amertume paisible au palais!

A beautiful pour, black, but with deep brown hi-lights in the light. Off-white head. On the nose there is roasty malts, grassy hops, and dark chocolate. Tastes are a surprising amount of dark chocolate, over some nice slightly bitter hops. Slightly resiny. This is like a stout and an IPA had a beautiful baby. Love it.
