Davros (1948) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2013
Pours black with a large tan head. Lots of roasty malt as a flavour along with menthol, pine and smoke. Interesting. Flavours include coffee grounds, roasted malt, caramel, piny hops, spicy notes. Finishes with a bold bitterness with both piny and roasty components. Carbonation is just a little high.

Reid (1905) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2012
22 oz bomber from "Lifesource" Salem. $4.95 Screen printed label..in the colours of the "Doug Fir" flag of the Republic of Cascadia. Mahogany dark brown ale with a nice thick creamy tan head. Great herbal,citric and pine tones from the hops in the aroma,hint of coffee from the malts. Surprising taste..very balanced but at the same time wildly swinging from the piney hops to the dark chocolate,toasted malts..then balanced again. Great mouthfeel very captivating..and a very tasty bitter after taste that lingers..like good dark esspresso coffee. Over all a very nice CDA

Solid solid CDA right here. I love this style. Nice and roasty up front, backed with mild dark fruit flavors and sweeter malts. Mild hints of chocolate. And then of course, hopped up near the back! All the flavors blend perfectly. This is something Iíd love to see in 6erís...

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

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2011
Pour is a dark brown with tons of ruby red highlights. The head is beautifully creamy looking and a light beige. The head looks absolutely delicious. Aroma is hop forward with a large grapefruit hop. Roasty espresso, chocolate and burnt notes. The middle is sweet and sweet with a dark roasty malt and coffee. The finish is quite bitter and finishes with a burnt roasted coffee bean flavour. I love this beer as a CDA or Black IPA. Very sweet, roasty and hoppy. Hand in hand, they work together in this beer.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Tap at Bier Stein. Poured out a cola brown with a light tan head. Aroma of earthy hops and some hefty caramel malts. Flavor pretty much the same, has a hefty malt finish. I donít know that Iíd call this an IPA, but am not 100% sure where Iíd categorize it. Either way it was a decent enough beer.

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.
