Pint at brewpub. Pours darn black. It’s basically the same shade as their stout. Delightfully hoppy aroma on this one. Plenty of grapefruit and dank herbs make this smell super nice. Hops transfer well to the flavor. Grapefruit flavors clash well with chocolaty malts. Great American style ale.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2010
bottle thanks to thirdeye11. Pours a dark brown/black with tan head. Aroma is very hoppy and kinda over powers the dark roasted notes. Flavor isn’t much different, has some sharp pine. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, not all that bad.

Davros (2831) - 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.

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

patricks110 (2428) - 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.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Pours not really black but more dark brown with ruby edges. Aroma of burnt malt, hops. taste is nice, it has a lot of bitterness, some hop related, some burnt or ash flavor. Medium body, lots of carbonation but it’s not prickly.

First off, the name really doesn’t work for me. Cola colored. Has a bit of an oil smell. Perhaps too much of one type of hops? Hoppy and bready mixture.
