COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Surprised Netherworld isn’t rated higher... this beer strikes a great balance. Black IPAs can often feel unbalanced, with a little too much black bitterness. This one is just a nice strong hop content in the front with a richness in the back. I can smell the douglas firs while drinking this. Head and lacing are great. This is how great beers are made. Highly recommended.

Svesse (6734) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2012
(Bottle, Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 5 April 2012) Dark brown colour, almost black, with brief beige head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of chocolate, dark bread and hints of ashes. Roasted, malty taste with chocolate, dark bread, hints of ashes and a slightly piney bitterness in the finish. Medium body, fairly dry. Well balanced and very nice.

Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 7, 2012
Pours a deep brown colour, cloudy with a very thin mocha head. Aroma is of roasted grains, coffee grounds with a lingering hop scent as well. Taste is dry up front with a nice bitter bite in this finish. Smooth on the palate, medium bodied, and soft carbonation. Overall a very nice brew.

Marheb (2817) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Malt rôti avec une touche métallique, difficile de cerner la réelle signature des houblons. Pas tant de café, ni de chocolat. Pas tant d’intérêt au final.

solidfunk (4850) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Taste pretty much just like an IPA, not sure if the black part adds anything. Some interesting hops smell. I would still prefer the smash bomb over this one, however. Bottle.

pudds (29) - Brandon, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
Pours a beautiful black with a thick foamy head. Smells wonderfully hoppy with a blend of malts and citrus. Initial taste is roasted malts followed by hop bitterness. Leaves a lasting coffee taste on the tongue. Light carbonation with a small amount of lacing on the glass. Excellent.

Johnsense (919) - - JAN 22, 2012
dark brown/black pour, 1 finger of head. Good lacing. Citrus hops and coffee in the aroma, grapefruit. Grapefruit up front, Bit of pine, coffee, roasted dark nut, roasted malt. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation. Fresher servings on tap have a bit more in the aroma. A hop-forward example of the style.

cards04 (2077) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 15, 2012
Pours almost black with a hazel colored head...as the beer warmed...aromas included a little smoke, vanilla, and coffee. On the palate, intense hops and espresso. Very nice beer.

Dark brown with a thin creamy head. Faint layer lingers throughout. Chocolately, coffee, hoppy aroma. Good hop flavour.
