On draught at Bite Burger. I was surprised by the appearance of this beer, deep black with a tan head that lasted the entire pint and left a lot of lacing; kudos! The nose and taste also let one know they were drinking a black IPA with nice roasted characteristics but with a standard bittering hop only profile. A solid beer that flies a bit under the radar given the brewery.

Veritable black IPA. Really enjoyed this batch from the brewery bought canned in August from the source. They used Mosaic hops in this one to give it a punchy aggressive hop flavour. Balanced with some roasted malts. Grab as many as you can as its a limited edition brew for 2015.

New winter seasonal from Ottawa-based Kichesippi Beer Company. Sampled from a growler poured at the brewery about an hour ago in an American pint glass.

Pours an almost opaque, steely black with deep, cola-like ruby tinges around the edges of the glass. The tan coloured head is small, but has great retention as a film and collar and it leaves a minor amount of lacing.

Piny hops jump out from the aroma, along with smells of freshly cut grains, toasted malts, a mild red berry smell, a bit of farmyard funk and a sort of lake water tone. The aroma is quite appealing overall, though a slight trace of diacetyl can be noted as well.

The taste has a solid bitterness up front, with a toasted grain and mild chocolate backing. The toasted character becomes more prevalent on the tongue, the chocolate taste gets darker and then another wave of bitterness comes through in the finish.

The mouthfeel is surprisingly thin and the carbonation is rather low, but the long-lasting collar creates a nice creamy sensation on the tongue. The roasted and chocolate characteristics get joined by a bitter espresso-like flavour in the aftertaste.

This is a very solid effort from an up and coming Ontario brewery and it's nice to see a representation of the style brewed locally. I'll be sure to have my growler re-filled a few times while the beer is available and I'd like to see the brewery consider bottling it next year.
