Beer Description:
Part of #Febrewary

Beau’s Pro-Am Series is a salute to homebrewers, true innovators of our craft. These beers are designed by amateur brewers, and brewed at Beau’s. Le Cœur Noir Black IPA was brewed in collaboration with Jordan Rainhard, winner of the 2013 Toronto Beer Week Homebrew Contest, and soon to be pro brewer at Rainhard Brewing Co. Congrats Jordan!

History & Style
Black IPA is contemporary American beer style that combines black beer colour, assertive hop flavour and aroma and toasty (rather than roasty) dark malt character.

Tasting Notes
This nearly opaque black beer offers up aromas of citrusy, piney hops with malt intonations, toast and restrained mocha. The overall flavour balance favours the impression of juicy, resinous hops supported by a solid malt backbone. This strong ale is robust, but the alcohol remains well integrated.

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 Quebec , raw milk cheddar.
