Bottle shared at the Foothills bottle share... thanks for setting it up, Mike! Nice balance in this one. Moderate chocolate sweetness with the right amount of pine sting. Really drinkable.

Black IPA / Cascadian Dark Ale (yes, it’s a style now). Really good toasted malt flavor. Very dark brown color. Delicious beer.

CheersMate (1299) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - FEB 4, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Whole Foods in Bellevue. Nice dark brown, almost black, appearance. This beer has a thin, and yet, wispy head. A little roast is complimented by a nice orange citrus hop aroma. The aroma is quite pungent, and nice. Very roasted at first, but the roast is soon dominated by the hop flavor, which actually has a pine taste, instead of a citrus taste. The beer is rather dry, and the roast mixes well with the aforementioned hop flavor. This has a bit of a milky flavor, as well. This is pretty good, and has a nice lingering bitterness, which pleases me.

Pours darker than their stout. Nice, interesting citrus/pine hop aroma, matched in the flavor, which adds some roastiness. Nice - best on their taplist aside from the IPA.

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.

Big thanks to Kevin for sharing this one! A-pours a brownish liquid with red esges. a light tan colored head is tight with great lace. S-hint of roasted maltiness, dark chocolate, burnt coffee up front. herbal marijuanna hops come through big time. touch of tea leaves accompany. T-the taste brings a light roasted malt, hints of smokiness. the herbal hops take over, touch of tea leaves and earthy. a little thinned out in the back. M-extremely smooth on the palate, lighter body, low carbonation that falls off in the back and is a little thin in boddy. D-pretty tasty, falls off in the back, the nose was great but the taste falls a little short of that. very earthy and dank like.

TipsyMcStager (1128) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2011
Pours very dark brown with nice off-white head. Mid range hoppy aroma. Roasty middle with dry finish. OK - a ways to go before its the Stone Self-Righteous.

Draft at HUB Portland, OR on 5 June 2013. Pours a very dark almost black with a lingering tan head. Great bitter citrus hop aroma. Full on hop bitterness rounded with burnt coffee and dark chocolate on the palate.

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.
