Fatehunter (1406) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Into a pint glass. A dark copper color with a thin dirty white head that quickly faded to the edge of the glass. From a foot away I smelled pine and citrus. Closer up, pine and grapefruit with a mellower undertone of malt. Total IPA at first, citrus followed by a small roasted malt bomb, ending with a nice bitter. The malt sweetness was faintly present throughout. Light to medium body with a light but assertive carbonation. Outstanding CDA with almost perfect balance of maltiness and hops.

Black color, with medium sized beige head. Very nice aroma of coffee, some roasted malt, light dust and hops. Good body structure, dark chocolate and coffee flavor, quite dry mouthfeel, with a strong bitterness; it ends with loads of roasted malts, and hidden hop resins, but never ashy. Very good.

RumRunner101 (810) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Roasted malt aroma - dark chocolate, espresso and piney hops. Medium bodied, roasted characteristics, medium hop finish. Finish is lingering bitter with a touch if lemon. This is a good beer, but I’ve had better stylistically, and a style I’m growing quite fond of.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2012
Originally reviewed: 3/2/10. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a limitless black. No light gets through. A gorgeous tan head caps it off like the top of a milkshake. Excellent retention; leaves lots of sticky lace and webbing. This is a really pretty beer. Big powerful pine resin scents burst out to the nose. Citrus zest and some grass in there as well. Great smooth and creamy body. This one sits a little heavy. Very bitter at the onset with lots of hop presence. Sharp burnt toast on the backend. A little charring. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one, but I was pleasantly surprised. Great beer!

Dogbrick (8688) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2012
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Pours reddish-brownish-black with a medium fluffy light beige head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of sweet roasted malt and resiny hops. The finish is piney hops up front and leaves a sweet malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

deyholla (7024) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Bottle thanks to Ben! Pours a clear dark brown with a deep earthy brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount grassy and pine hops with a bit of roast and dark grains. Flavor has a nice combination of roasted malts, dark grains and a bit of resinous pine hop. A bit of a creamy mouth feel.

Bomber. dark with tan head. More malty then hoppy but neither stand out. a little flat and unimpressive but not bad.

dresden (948) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
Pours deep black. Citrus aroma with some cocoa and coffee. Quite hoppy, but with a mocha malt body. I really like this one. Some grapefruit, some coffee. Works well here.

Black pour with a finger of head. Webs of lacing. Citrus aroma - hops, some coffee. Gave it a bit to warm and was surprised at how balanced this was - Hoppy bitterness with roasted malt, a bit of black coffee, under-ripe Grapefruit, Organic grains (think that smell when you step into an organic grocery store). Medium bodied, slightly lower carbonation. Resiny mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Nice dark malts with pine hop flavor. The body presents a nice solid palate, minimal bitterness. Nice representative of a CDA Cascadian Dark Ale
