Part of the ’Hoard Series’ beers, this is a dark beer with subtle roast and chocolate malt character and a punchy hoppy IPA nose and bitterness.

Cask at The Barton Arms; ruby/brown pour with velvety magnolia head, grapefruit aroma, unexpected fruity hop grapefruit pine a bit of citrus surprisingly hop forward, with well balanced malts, and a background of coffee, hope this came of the right tap.

Cask@the imperial, walsall. Black beer with medium off white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee. Taste is roasted malts, sweetish, hops, dried fruit and some pine resin. Some cream on the palate. Good beer, whatever style it is.

(Bottled) I was looking forward to this because it stated ’Cascadian’ on the bottle , thus i optimistically expected a hoppy dark monster, imdownthepub is right not to list this as a Black IPA ; but not to say its not pleasant. notes of roast malt, toffee , present licorice notes . The hop profile here ismore shy and breezy than one would seek in a’ Cascadian’ type beer

Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest ’11. Dark chestnut with cream head. Initially quite malty sweet, some dark liquorice notes with plummy fruity notes and then a pleasing leafy hoppy follow through. Nice and fresh despite the conditions in the beer fest the previous night. Good stuff.
