Heeding a chorus of voices crying for a dark roasty thing with lots of west coast hops and a higher ABV, we summoned Netherworld from the chaotic flipside of the brewhouse where hybrid is the norm and nothing is ordinary. Hovering just this side of evil, in the right hands, our «Cascadian Dark Ale» is bizarrely nice with its own entrancing mojo. However, watch out for those who refuse to see the darkness.

Gandalf39 (48) - - OCT 15, 2014
J’ai pas envie de commenter. donc voila: netherworld (plural netherworlds) The place to which one’s spirit descends upon death, conceived as below the surface of the earth. In some religions, one’s soul departs to a netherworld, hell, instead of the heavens. The locale of the spirit world or afterlife, whether deemed to be situated below the world of the living or not. While I was astrally projecting, I felt my soul pass through many insubstantial netherworlds. Specifically, a location of punishment in the afterlife; a hell. The missionary was motivated by a sincere desire to rescue souls from eternal torment in the netherworld. (by extension) A hidden, shadowy, or sinister subculture, such as that of organized crime. Richard had been initiated to the netherworld of dog racing by his father, and knew all the popular greyhound performance enhancing drugs.

radiomgb (2275) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
355ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Deep brown in colour with a long lasting tan head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of citrus hops, some grapefruit, light roasted malt in the back. The flavour is toasty first, earthy with some coffee, hops come in at the back, pine and citrus. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, bitter, roasty and hoppy. The other Black IPA’s I’ve had have been quite hoppy. This is stepped back a bit, good balance.

taylorderek (27) - - JUL 8, 2014
Served in snifter at cellar temp (~10-15mins out of fridge). I can immediately see why this opaque black-bodied beer is called Netherworld - Hades lets more light in. Head was a coffee beige colour and an aroma of mocha and beer wafted from the glass with the first sip. Netherworld sports a soft carbonation, creamy texture and a strong, rounded finish. Flavours of roasted coffee and sweet light chocolate malt work spectacularly with the bitter tone set by the hops.

Excalibur123 (159) - Soria, SPAIN - JUN 27, 2014
Vierte color negro intenso, abundante cabeza de espuma beige con retención media; en nariz regaliz, café torrefacto, madera quemada y lúpulo, en boca entrada maltosa con delicado amargor; notas ahumadas. Pos gusto un tanto seco y amargo que no desagrada en absoluto; cuerpo y carbónico medios, interesante dark ale ó black ipa no tengo muy claro como clasificarla pero buena cerveza.

lesifflebiere (1300) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Mousse à l’apparence du beurre d’érable, avec des notes de chocolat, de vanille et de noisettes. En bouche, soyeuse et épaisse, l’amertume qui conclut une gorgée sucrée mais équilibrée est tout à fait charmante. Du chocolat, du café espresso et une petite impression de boisé conclut l’affaire. Classique mais savoureux.

fiulijn (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle at Nya Tröls, Malmö, 6% ABV
Dark mahogany color with ruby shades; large compact head. Aroma of burnt wood and ashes. Roasted malt flavor, dry, some ashes, some burnt coffee; some paper feeling in the end. Bitter but any hop quality is hidden by the dark malts. Monodimensional.
There are much better ways to brew a Cascadian Dark.

pictoman (559) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
Poured from 355mL bottle. Dark brown (near black) with tan head. Predominant roasted malts on the aroma with mild hops. Flavour same, well done. Medium body.
