Cask at "Soirée des Grands Crus" Microbrasserie du Siboire, Sherbrooke (QC), Candada. 5.9% ABV.
A - Pours a black color with copper hues on the side of the glass. The head is limited to a ring at the surface.
S - Light malty and roasted notes upfront which disappear quickly to reveal a strong hoppiness (medicinal, citrusy and grassy).
T - Taste is pretty similar to the smell. The hop flavours are rich and complex but the malt is too discrete in my opinion.
M - Good mouthfeel, very smooth with a low carbonation as expected from a cask. Medium bodied, in my opinion this beer would benefit from being a bit heavier.
O – A good Black IPA which features a stong hop character and an excellent drinkability. Perhaps a higher maltiness would be interesting to get a better balance.

On tap at the brewery. Identified as Strato Black IPA 6%
A- Beer looked good, poured a nice black with a quick to dessipate head. Leaving some lacing.
S- Notes of roasted malts and some floral hops but nothing close to your average black ipa's.
T- Roasted malts again, Very faint hint of coco. Hardly any hop taste to it.
If this is a black ipa, it's not what it should be. Off the style and i regret getting this.
If this is simply a stout then it's also very ordinary. I can enjoy a good stout and i love black ipa's but this isn't it.
Try it for yourselves and see.

Festival Bières et Saveurs 2009. This brewery rotates 50 recipes so I was happy to get the basics. A very decent stout, medium mouthfeel, a tad sour, with chocolate up front. Black without significant head. Roasty, and chocolate, aroma. Hops are right there. As good as any stout in Quebec.
