A very nice Cascadian Dark Ale (Black IPA) brewed with Governorís Cup coffee. Very nice dark malt flavor.

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.

Theydon_Bois (9957) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Keg at the taproom, 10/11/14. Mahogany brown with a well appointed beige covering. Nose is earthy roast, tangy red berries, mineral notes, grapefruit, earthy hops, trace of coffee. Taste comprises earthy hops, red berry pangs, more prominent coffee than on the nose, spice, mineral wash. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid CDA.

Emeister84 (1129) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Aromas of coffee, citrus, earthy. Black with a fully lasting beige head. Dry, bitter, earthy green bean flavors. Full bodied.

mikedR (1348) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Very, very nice. Itís a little watery up front. But the hops give way to an amazingly nice coffee back end. Plus, I like saying "Gilgamesh."

Fatehunter (1401) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 25, 2014
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. Solid.

"My buddy held onto this for a bit too long (got it two months ago and it likely wasnít brand new) so the "cascadian" part has pretty much passed, but whatís 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. Itís 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 Iíd give it another shot fresh

Koskela (301) - Marysville, California, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Choc coffee aroma with a hint of hops come from this clear brown ale with a med brown head. The taste is choc with a good blend of hops and a nice bitterness during the aftertaste which compliments the whole brew. The beer is med bodied and a good carb. Great dark ale.

BuckeyeBoy (2878) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 26, 2014
22oz bottle. Pours out a dark brown almost topped with a tan head. Nose is tons of coffee hops and roast malts. Taste is as the nose with lots of coffee acid bitterness and a grapefruit pithy on the end.

Getbetter (894) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - JUN 3, 2014
From a bottle . The pour is a cloudy brown with a thin white lace head. The roasted malt is at the forefront of taste with hoppy coffee aftertaste.A slick thick texture.

On draught at imperial May the 4th be with you. Pours pitch black with medium thick head. Nose of coffee, malt, smoke. Nice balanced flavor of chocolate, hops, coffee, and burned toffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
