On tap at a local pub. Great flavor, but I am a sucker for a CDA! Pleasant burnt flavors, hoppy aroma and perfect color.

Dark cherry colors with a tan foam. Aroma of coffee and piney malts. Decent body but light roasted flavors have little hop support. Some bitterness in the finish.

22. Pours black with minimal foamy fish-eye head and light lace. Dark bitter nose, some 80+% type dark chocolate and plenty of campfire and resin. Not really a distinct profile there. Light, watery-ish body with sluggish carb. Roasty, resiny, dark chocolate-y mid palate. Earthy, dry, roasty finish. Not very organized.

Very, very nice. It’s a little watery up front. But the hops give way to an amazingly nice coffee back end. Plus, I like saying "Gilgamesh."

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours two fingers of head on an almost black body.
The aroma has chocolate, coffee and a little lemon and pine. Nice blend.
The taste has a nice moderate pine bitterness throughout, the coffee and roasted malt in the background provide a good balance.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.

"My buddy held onto this for a bit too long (got it two months ago and it likely wasn’t brand new) so the "cascadian" part has pretty much passed, but what’s left is ok. Little coffee on the nose, but ample coffee flavor. That saves the beer from being pretty boring otherwise. The dark malt is ok, but it seems Gilgamesh has a commonality with their beers, regardless of style or age. It’s not bad, but I like more of an obvious difference between styles...and not sooo strong of a house flavor. That said, this beer was pleasant enough I’d give it another shot fresh
