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.

On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe. Pours a very dark brown with an off white head. A little lacing. Aroma has fresh sweet fruit - mango from a black ipa? Also some roasted malt - could give this anywhere from a 6 to a 9. Taste ... well fresh fruit is king. Some maltiness underneath, I’ve never had a dark brew as fruity as this. Not too thick or strong. Finishes sweet and fruity. Certainly a different take on a black ipa. Is this a good saison?

Intense chocolate, mild roast, dank budz, mango, pine, toasty bread. Stupid complex, crushable

I'm seeing a quality issue with boneyard these days. This beer is nothing like it was a year or two ago (but neither is hop venom or RPM). Use to be only beer to rival Wookey Jack, and now it's thin, astringent, not as dark, and not much in the way of hop flavor or nose you'd expect from a hoppy boneyard beer. This saddens me because I've always been one of their biggest fans..

Bottle... Dark brown pour with ruby highlights and a small, fizzy, off-white head. The aroma is straight-up dankness and full-on armpit. Full-bodied and fatty with modest carbonation. The flavor is roasty and bittersweet - more sweet than bitter. Finishes tongue numbing, astringent and Mojave-dry. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

CBC Session 3. Clear deep amber beer, small pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and airy and crisp. Mild dark malts, very mild! Sweetish too with a touch of caramel. Mellow dark fruits. Hops sit lightly on top and bring spicy pine. Light dry finish. Pretty tasty and drinkable.
