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 (418) - 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.

ENG: 355ml bottle from Liquor Mart Winnipeg. Poured into the tulip. Very dark brown color, a bit iridescent with some amber/orange highlights. Small-medium creme or light-brown head. Aromas of caramel, chocolate and coffee together with herbal hops. Tastes a bit like sweet fruits, a bit of caramel and malts, toasts, also grapefruit and lime in the background. Delicate bitter in the aftertaste. Creamy with medium carbonation and medium body. Overall a bit heavy and oily.

PL: Butelka 355ml zakupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg. Przelana do kieliszka. Bardzo ciemne, brązowe w barwie, opalizujące, z bursztynowymi przebłyskami. Średnia jasno-brązowa piana. Aromaty karmelu, czekolady i kawy zmieszane z ziołowo-chmielowymi. Smakuje nieco jak słodkie owoce, nieco karmelowymi słodami, tostami, a także grejfrutem i limonką w tle. Delikatnie goryczkowy posmak. Kremowe, średnio nasycone, średnie ciało. Podsumowując - nieco ciężkawe, oleiste.
