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.

fiulijn (16186) - 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.

gildnerk (170) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep ruby-red, somewhat lighter than a typical Schwarzbier, with a thin off-white head. Aromas of roasted malts, brown sugar and spruce hops. The taste is much hoppier and more complex than traditional Schwarzbier or dark lager, albeit somewhat less malty than I like in the style. Finely carbonated and robust body. Nice one.

dr_brewer (5) - Ourense, SPAIN - MAR 25, 2014 does not count
Bottle 33 cL. Cloudy black with substantial amount of "swimmers" (hop?). Fine layer of dark beige foam. In the nose a very nice aroma of coffee balanced with citrusy/flowery hop notes. In the taste you first get the hops, then the roast character and in the aftertaste an assertive bitterness primarily from the hops. Here is where the grassiness appears, although not to overpowering. Balance is quite good. I’d prefer a little less roast, but that’s just preference.

Freaky_tiki (730) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
Pour at Tall Boys carnival is chalk board black with a nice dark cap on top. Great blend of roast malts, cocoa & thick hops. May be the best pour at this hipster heavy beer fest.
