Dunham Black IPA
Dunham Black IPA is an alomost opaque midnight black brew, topped with the thickest, most unrelenting tan head I have ever encountered. This stuff was genuinely hard to pour--I'm not kidding--it took me the better part of ten minutes to get the bottle worth into my glass. The hop heavy aroma makes it abundantly clear that the hop plant is related to hemp. The rich flavour is highly bitter. Hops are dominant, but there is some molasses sweetness in the mix too. There;s a slight touch of black espresso near the finish.
A truly full-bodied black IPA, Dunham has a mouth-puckeringly bitter, but complex and interesting flavour. As with so many of the beers out of La Belle Province, this stuff is a winner with lots of character.
Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
