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.

northropfrye (2164) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 22, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2011 Bottle. The first Black IPA I’ve tried. Very dark black colour with off white head. Faint aroma, a little hoppy. Taste is bitter and roasty stout tasting. Decent. (500th rating)

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark brown/black with light tan head. Aroma has strike hoppy pine presence with dark roasted grain in the back ground. Flavor has sharp, clean pine, subtle dark roast, light tartness with sharp hoppy bitterness. Medium body with high carbonation. Overall, tasty brew and oddly semi refreshing.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2011
Pours black with a thin beige head out of a 341ml bottle from the LCBO. dark and chocolate malts. somewhat hoppy but not overwhelming. Not very bitter. Not much to compare this too but it’s pretty awesome. Either a great beer or I really enjoy this style.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 11, 2011
My favorite of the Flying Monkeys beers - good mix of coffee and "dark" flavors, and a good, solid bracing hop bitterness. A lot of times these dark IPAs seems a little discombobulated, but this was well executed. I could’ve drank this all night. Thanks to jerc for the trade!

kevinsenn (1033) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2011 Pours dark brown. Aroma is very nice - caramel and hops. Dark fruit flavour, a little bit of bitterness, and whole lot of roasted malt. I found the roasted flavour didn’t "blend" completely with the hoppy flavour - it was like drinking two very different beers at once. Still, bonus points for being something interesting/different! EDIT: tried again and the flavours went together better than I thought they did the first time.

Trev (1899) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Tap: Pour is dark brown with ruby highlights and a thin tan head. aroma is nice coffee, dark roast malt, some nuttiness. flavour is nutty, roasted malt, a resinous bitterness. Nice body, good balance. I enjoyed this one.

Bouteille 355 ml. Couleur brune foncée, mousse beige. Arôme de caramel, malt torréfié, houblon et un peu de citron. Gout de malt torréfié, houblon...bel équilibre en bouche. Finale en amertume qui incite à la prochaine gorgée. Excellente.

Quevillon (2453) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2011
Tasting at the 18th Mondial de la bière, June 10, 2011. Mahogany brown, small head. Hoppy aroma of chocolate, hints of berries. Taste of malted barley, hops and herbs, small fruits, after-taste of bitter herbs. Really weird!
