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.

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.
