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.

Roasty and toasty, char and toast. Some bitterness as the hops come through in the finish. Fairly dry overall.

The_Osprey (5561) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle share, thanks to Leighton. As ’Flying Monkeys Netherworld’, 6%. The label is ... colourful. Very dark reddy brown, opaque, decent foamy tan head, light lacing. Aroma is fudgey, pine, some jammy fruit. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is salty, pine, mint, touch of booze, resinous hops. Good BIPA.

Scopey (11790) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours clear deep red-brown with a small beige head. The nose is bitter - sweet, juicy, burnt pine, toffee, dried fruits, raisin, burnt fruit cake, liquorice and aniseed. The taste is bitter, toasty, charred wood, grapefruit, bitter orange, peppery spice, roasted malt and a touch of cardboard with a linger bitter / charred finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A touch to raw and charred for it to really sing. Decent anyhow.
