Ölbeat 042: Dunham Imperial Black IPA

Brewery: Brasserie Dunham
Country: Canada 
Style: India Black Ale
Abv: 8,6 %
Strong bubbles, powerful beer

What about the beer?
Colour is pitch black with beautiful huge foamy light-beige head. Aroma has a clean and fresh scent with mild citrus and roast. Taste bites with sharply bitter hops, especially on tongue. After the hop attack the bitterness grows with roast. Towards the end gentle roast, aggressively bitter grapefruit and dry pine make the party. Aftertaste is sandpaper dry and biting bitter.

What we have here is a "fist-on-the-face" aggressive brew: the match starts with a straight hoppy right to the cheek and ends with a hooky grapefruit left to the chin. This is heavy hardcore stuff, that you shouldn't drink unalerted. Superb craftbeer from the Quebec-based brewery.


The song matching this Dunham brew had to be "f**k peace, this is rock" song. You can't change the world with beer, can you:

Ozzy Osbourne: I Don't Want to Change the World (YouTube, Live 1992)

From the 1991 album No More Tears, the song was written by Ozzy Osbourne, Zakk Wylde, Randy Castillo and Lemmy Kilmister.
