The beer has a pleasant hop aroma but the bittering hops dominates an otherwise clean finish. The dark malts do not contribute excessive tannins.

mcberko (5372) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2011
22 oz. bottle, pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, citrus & herbal hops and a sort of stale funk. Flavour of a balance of roasted malt and herbal / citrus hops. Quite nice.

Dark soda looking pour from bottle with a thin head. Aroma is rye and earthy. Taste is slightly bitter, with notes of herbs, nuts and hay. Complex and interesting.

I fell in love with this beer after the first sip. And I donít say that often. I just found it that good. It had an enticing nose filled with chocolate and citrusy hops. Then a great mouthfeel and a dryish finish. Huge pine bursts in the mouth right off the bat. A sappy sweetness quickly morphs into an explosive bouquet of hop aromas (pine trees, flowers, wild grasses and mint). Like fresh herbs coated in a resinous syrup. Chocolate and dark grains also take hold of your olfactories. Man, what a tasty, fresh-tasting Cascadian Dark Ale. Easily one of the best Iíve ever had.

650ml bottle from Brewery Creek in Vancouver. Pours very dark brown with pillowy off white head. Lots of perfumey floral hops balanced with roasted dark malt. Moderate bitterness lingers in the finish. Very floral. Quality.

650ml brown bottle. As "Cascadian Dark Ale". Pours dark brown with deep orange amber highlights. Compact clingy tan head. Dense lacing. Reding hoppy nose, pine notes, citrus. Flavor has biscuity chocolate malt up front backed by with grapefruit and grass hop notes. Finishes with chocolate and lingering grassy, leafy bitterness. Medium body, soft and even carbonation profile, quite a mild smooth mouthfeel. Solid CDA.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 26, 2011
On tap at Big Alís - Very floral and citrus hops scent. Dark pour with a nice white head. Tastes like roasted malt with a great hops balance. I donít have anything smart to say about this. I just really, really like it.

Sample tray. Dark copper. Nice dance of malt and hops in the nose. Chocolate malt, nuttiness, light cinamon and hop flavour.
