COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Cascadian Dark Ale
Imperial Cascadian is the NW style of this brew. This is a very well balanced, extremely hoppy black ale. It is very reminiscent of a winter ale. Armored fist is a collaboration beer brewed with the good ole boys from Three Floyd’s Brewing out of Chicago.

Growler shared by Colin. Clear brown pour with an off white head. Light coffee aromas. Citrusy hops blend nicely with the mild dark roasted malt notes. Decent body and an above average mouthfeel.

pdx77 (1019) - Oregon, USA - JUL 27, 2013
On draught at Roscoe’s. Black color. Dark malt and coffee aroma. Taste is a great balance of sweet caramel malt, dark chocolate, espresso, and prominent tropical citrus hops. Really well-balanced and not the least bit bitter.

From growler filled at Boneyard. Wonderful taste, and I didn’t know about the 3 Floyds connection until I viewed this beer’s ratings. No wonder they have a couple of Dark Lord Day posters in the tasting room. A truly wonderful quaff from a great brewery!

Draft at uber. Pours a murky dark brown with dark amber edges and a scant tan head. Big tangy grapefruit nose with burnt malt undertones. Creamy medium body with subdued carb. Dark caramel and tons of grapefruit on the mid palatw. Long ashy tangy finish. Nice mix of sweet, roasty, and bitter.

Not sure what to say other than its just a good beer. Full bodied, lots of flavor. A very nice imperial CDA. Recommended
