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 (508) - 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.

colui72 (638) - HONG KONG - AUG 18, 2016
Pours black with a medium cream head. Hoppy aroma of citrus and resin. Smooth in the palate, with notes of dark fruit, citrus, caramel and pine. Medium bitter finish, light body, tasty. Good ale.

cheap (5254) - 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 (104) - 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.

Tmoney99 (13336) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, earthy hop. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium dark bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good complex beer.

Achel (390) - Ioannina, GREECE - AUG 4, 2016
Aroma is citrus, fruit, hops and mild dark malts/bread. The flavor is grapefruit, pine needles, dark malts, a hint of dark bread and a dryish/bitter finish.

bierkoning (12274) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle. Almost black. Soft citrusfruit, ash and licorice in the aroma. Malty sweetish grassy citric flavor with lots of licorice and ash. Somewhat out of balance

CacheManyHose (576) - HONG KONG - JUL 24, 2016
Dark red-brown, beige fizzy head with some big suds, wet frothy lacing. Smells of roasted dark malt, some burnt coffee, grassy hop, light toffee, spice, and bready biscuit. Taste is burnt dark malt bitterness, a bit like watery burnt coffee, light biscuit and spice. Body is a little flat, bitter, grassy. Not bad. Like a hoppier brown ale with with some burnt coffee and biscuit. Would be better with some depth to balance the bitter burnt flavour. I like black IPAs that are less grassy in their roastiness and more chocolate/coffee/smoky.
