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 (14340) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Tap at Volo. Deep black pour with a tight tan head. The aroma is quite hoppy. Lots of dark malt and a bit of licorice as well. Herbal and a little bit grassy. There is a lot of fresh hop character, but its not nearly as resinous as other examples I’ve had. Malts are quite well developed with loads of bittersweet cocoa and some very lovely sticky hop oils. There is a slight savoury component that I quite enjoy in here as well. Soft bitterness but loads of hop flavour. It’s a pretty solid take on the style - approachable yet distinct.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2011 2011-02-19. Very dark brown body with a nice foamy brown head. 4+ Herbaceous leafy green aroma, muted dry roast malt with a brief whisp of coffee that seemingly flees once spotted. 7+ Flavour is pleasantly hoppy, with a green leafy hops character up front, modest roast and cocoa notes below along with variable waves of citrus hop character. 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate is slightly thinner than my own preference but full enough to carry the beer. 3+ Very drinkable. More well rounded than I recall previous samples being. 7+/4+/8/3+/16 – 3.8 Tap at The Only Café Winter Festival, Toronto

2009-11-29. Dark brown body with a modest tan head and lace. Modest aroma has Newcastle like brown ale touches beneath a modestly hoppy character. Muted vegetation, bit mild overall. 6+ Flavour is odd at first, interesting hops, light vegetation, light citrus, mild roast and underlying malt. Pleasant dilute citrus lingers in the finish. Flavours come together better as the glass goes on. Average plus palate suits it. Decent. 6/4/7/3/14 - 3.4On tap at Volo, Toronto

On tap at Volo. Pours a deep clear black to brown with ruby highlights and a thin tanned beige head. Dry roast and sticky piney hop aromas. Just on the thin side of medium with a nice soft roast and chocolate Finishes a bit softer than expected from the hop profile, but with some nice light roast components and a bit of grapefruit bitterness.
