Taster at Amnesia Winter Ale Festival. More like a chocolate stout than a Cascadian, but thatís not necessarily a bad thing.

Hmm, this is almost more like a hoppy stout than a black IPA. The hops are definitely there, especially in the finihs, but not strong in the body at all. In fact, the body just isnít all that good. It maybe has some fruit notes. A beer in limbo for me. Must try again.

draft. medium dark brown; beige head. powdered milk, cocoa / chocolate malt, black patent licorice and soy sauce (mild) and lightly pungent green hops in the nose. medium-light body with fizzy, disjointed carbonation. wet, green but subtle and quiet hops that seems to be overtaken by the chocolate and roast malts. overall fairly forgettable.
