Serving: from can--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles.
Aroma: moderate, pine hop.
Appearance: huge, rocky, light brown initial head with excellent lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Cola-colored body.
Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and moderately bitter, roasty finish with hint of chocolate.
Palate: medium-to-full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: excellent. Great, lasting aroma. Sheets of lacing. Sweet flavor balances the bitterness of the hops. Nice, smooth palate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Pours a near black color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is a lot more on the IPA end of the spectrum than the roasty end. I get a lot of floral elements with just a bit of citrus, and only a hint of roasting in there. Taste had a lot more of the roastiness to it, with a very healthy dose of the hoppy bitterness. Very pleasant drink.

16 oz can from New Seasons - Poured black with about an inch of tan head that lasted. Looks delicious! Malt not overpowering, but definitely there. Good hop balance. Some coffee tones. Very nice black IPA.

A nice and smooth Cascadian Dark. As 5000 said, it’s a bit more on the lighter side of everything, roast, hop, and sweetness, but it all works together well.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can:   Deep brown, dirty, muddy, sediment floats about, moderate frothy sandy head, little lacing.   Roast, hop bitterness, , and a little campfire on the nose.   Citrus pith and peel up front, not as roasty as the nose suggested.   Very soft roasted malts otherwise.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lighter example, light finish, moreso a Black Pale Ale me thinks.

Another great can design from the Astoria brewery. Love the glyphs on it. This is super roasty. If you want a Black IPA to be 50/50 then this one is not it. This chooses roasty and coffee notes. Even the bitterness is more coffee grounds than hops. As it warms more spruce notes pop up.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A big dry hopped nose. Super smooth in texture with a little chocolate and a mid-register bitterness. I think this is an excellent take on the CDA. The texture really stands out to me, as it does on all their beers.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from tallboy to glass. Jet black hue with a thick tan head that lasted. Aroma is huge pine, melon, resin, ripe lime. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and high carbonation level. Taste is initially slightly sweet with a bitter following and a dry astringent finish. Nice CO2 bite. Overall, this is a decent cascadian dark ale. A bit more roasty than a traditional IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL can, pours black with a medium beige head. Nose brings out bold roasted malt, some espresso, and piney hops. Flavour is very dry and bitter, bringing out roasty malt bitterness upfront, followed by piney hops. No residual sweetness at all, with quite a pronounced astringency. Very solid black IPA.
