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.

oh6gdx (24330) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Bottled. Deep reddish brown colour with a mediumsized fluffy/foamy off-white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is roasted malts, some floral notes, mild fruits as well as some ashes and mild liquorice. Flavour is quite similar, but quite intense on the floral and fruity notes. Anyhow the roasted/ashy notes are a bit too strong to make this an enjoyable BIPA.

Clear deep red - amber beer, good pale tan head. Palate is light and a little dry, nice fine crispness. Smooth dark malts, some roasty bitterness. Very thin malt cream. Unsweet dark chocolate. Pine and modest hop bitterness. Mild hop skunk. Smooth finish leaves a bitterish linger. Good one.

fiulijn (17990) - 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.
