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.

Bottle from The Beer store. Pours dark with beige head. Upfront chocolate and coffee malts. Nice bitterness in the middle and finish. Creamy mouth feel. I can’t decide if this or Atomic Smashbomb is my favourite from Flying Monkeys. Requires much more testing...

Pours a nearly opaque, dark brown with a light whit head, Aroma notes include black liquorice, coffee, and dark chocolate. Tasting notes are coffee, chocolate, caramel, and liquorice. Well balanced bitterness rounds out this amazing beer! Another fine beer from my favorite brewery!

YigSvartka (64) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 3, 2013
Small head with an insignificant scent of roast and black licorice. Light, creamy texture with mild carbonation. Rigorous coffee and dark chocolate taste (emphasis on the coffee, as this lingers for quite a while), followed by some minor hops. Delicious beer.

Nice and dark roasty notes offered in this black IPA make it a good example of an american black ipa.

It’s a dandy looking beer, nice and dark with a moderate to low tan head. Wow, aroma is initially just loads of resiny, citrusy hops, but if you stick with it, you start to get the roasty malt as well. Really interesting. Toasted cereal in there as well. And what is going on in the taste? Bitter, yep. Finishes out with more malt than hop, though and leaves you wanting another sip to figure out what you’ve been tasting. Could use a bit more lingering aftertaste. And it would perhaps be just a little less dry, to my taste anyway. Overall, interesting beer.

355mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), pours a deep dark brown / near-black with a small tan / light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts and citrus hops upfront - pretty standard for a black IPA. Flavour is also fairly typical, but well-executed, for a black IPA, with roasted malt upfront, followed by dry hoppy bittering which lingers on the finish. Nothing special about this, but it does what it does very competently. Solid stuff.
