Le Coeur Noir

Le Cœur Noir Black I.P.A. was designed and brewed collaboratively with Jordan Rainhard of Toronto’s Rainhard Brewing  (www.rainhardbrewing.com). Nearly opaque, this black I.P.A. offers up aromas of citrusy, piney hops with malt intonations, toast and restrained mocha.

7.1% • Wild Oats Series No. 60

History & Style

Black I.P.A. is contemporary American beer style that combines black beer colour, assertive hop flavour and aroma and toasty (rather than roasty) dark malt character. Le Cœur Noir Black I.P.A. was first brewed in Feb. 2015 as part of Beau’s annual FeBREWary celebrations.

Tasting Notes

This strong ale is robust, but the alcohol remains well integrated. The overall flavour balance favours the impression of juicy, resinous hops supported by a solid malt backbone.

Food Pairings

Black pepper seared striploin with BBQ sauce, lamb vindaloo, charcuterie like prosciutto & dry cured salami, 70% chocolate pudding cakes, Strong, dry bleu cheese like Glengarry Celtic blue or Ermite from Québec, raw milk cheddar.
