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.

Sask89 (514) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - APR 7, 2012
Pours a deep brown colour, cloudy with a very thin mocha head. Aroma is of roasted grains, coffee grounds with a lingering hop scent as well. Taste is dry up front with a nice bitter bite in this finish. Smooth on the palate, medium bodied, and soft carbonation. Overall a very nice brew.

Bosskie (753) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2016
Very dark transparent ruby red bear with a nice big white head. Smell is grapefruit peel and pine with some resin. Hint of caramel and dark fruit. Taste is bitter and dry. Light touch of ash and resin. Astringent sticky finish. Pity there’s no sweetness for balance.

mariuspoenari (1463) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2016
33cl bottle. Very dark brown pour with a medium height tan head. Notes of roasted coffee, pine resin, citrus hops, chocolate, roasted malts. Medium body, medium to high carbonation and a roasty and hoppy bitter-sweet finish.

GoufCustom (1616) - HONG KONG - SEP 3, 2016


355 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Looks: Clear deep brown colour; One quarter finger head with soapy light beige foam which fades in 20 seconds; Very good sticky lacing with zero carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant dark malt, with strong roastyness, burnt toffee, caramel, roasted coffee beans, alcohol, dark chocolate, floral, light grapefruits, resin, molasses, bread, lemon and grass.

Taste: Very light sweet dark malt, with burnt toffee, burnt toast, caramel, grapefruits, dark chocolates, floral, light molasses, wood, resins, very light pine, light biscuits, lemon, mid to strong bitter hops and strong grass.

Body: Close to medium body. Quite slick and oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Good dark maltyness in a slightly watery background. Strongly roasted with evident burnt toffee and burnt toast amplified by lack of sweetness. Moderate grapefruits and good floral, quite oozy and woody with strong lemon to round. Pretty good!

Hoppiness: Floral, light grapefruits, resin, lemon and grass in nose. Grapefruits, floral, wood, resins, very light pine, lemon and strong grass in taste; Bitterness - burnt malt and hops - is quite strong for a lasting, high astringent lemony oozy finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Toasty and strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one has a really enjoyable burnt toffee and roasty coffee bean aroma, yet the taste is somehow bare naked by thin palate, too light in sweetness and a tad light in hoppiness than most Black IPAs. A solid one but not sensational. Worth a try, though.

From tap at BeerTemple, Amsterdam, 17.02.16. Dark brown. Foamy and persistent brown head and lacing. Aroma of fresh American hops, with dry hopping of citrus and grass. Similar taste, combined with dark caramel and medium dark malt. Surprisingly balanced.

cheap (5307) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2016
Bottle. In my glass it looks big, large and incharge. OK, I was hoping this was not IPA, but there, you have it. Everything gottah B freeking IPA today. So, since I got it open I mays well rate it. If you love black IPA go for it. Though I find it to be more of a stronger porter rather than IPA, it’s still kick ass alky impact, even @ 6%, it seems like more. The smell is volatile choco malt. Yes, dark choco and malt abides by the voluptuous development of flavors. Higher alky is not my style unless its well done and this is one for the border. In the end its just a big, black, buzzy, buzzy, beer babeldom, babirusa, baboonery, baccate and bacchanal brew. Go figger. The funny thing about this brand beer is I think they are all made in mexico, I guess its because of mad mex and teh label art.

kaserov (181) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 12, 2016
No estoy demasiado seguro de esta cerveza. Para empezar, pensaba que era una Black IPA (y, en teoría, lo es), pero es más una negra corriente y moliente. Buena, eso sí. El problema son las expectativas creadas. No capto mucho lúpulo ni en el aroma ni en el sabor. Solo capto café, café, café. En teoría creía que una Black IPA debía tener apariencia de negra pero paladar de IPA, cosa que aquí no ocurre ni por asomo. Amargor no hay, tenga los IBUs que tenga. Rica, disfrutable, pero no lo que esperaba.
