Thanks sebletitje for the share. Pours dark brown with a khaki head. Nose is hops, slight roast, coffee, and more hops. Very interesting style: tastes like nice malts with plenty of hops with some coffee. I will take more, please.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Tap at the Oak Street Speakeasy. Poured cola colored with a thin tan head and a little lacing. Aroma isn’t the beer’s strongest feature, but I can detect some caramel and light chocolate, a small amount of roasted malt as well. Flavor is roasted malts up front, with some chocolate and a splash of citrus hops at the back end. Not very IPA like at all, but still a solid beer.

You mix an IPA with another beer type and if done properly you can get an outstanding beer. That’s exactly what this is ... an outstanding beer. It pours a deep dark bock look with a fairly thick fluffy tan-brown head. The flavor is of an IPA with malty-notes of toasted, roasted, chocoleted goodness.

Thanks to Phil for this, pours deep brown with a decent light tan head. Coffee, chocolate and a touch of vanilla. Flavor goes more dry and bitter in the finish.

creamy tan head on top of a very dark pour. Aroma seems like a very nice balance of hops and malt and it does not lie. The hops are not as present in the initial taste as i would like, but leaves a very nice bitter finish. tasty beer.

Reid (1806) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - JUN 17, 2010
22 oz from Capital Market, Salem. Gorgeous looking black ale.. with a lovelly light brown frothy,thick,large head. Aroma is a bit subdued but pleasant none-the-less,caramel, slight chocolate and herby hops Very porter like taste, dark chocolate,liquorice,dark fruits,..hops in the end. Bitter aftertaste from the malts rather than the hops. Ok on the palate..maybe a slightly cloying after taste. Overall not a great fav of mine, but good. This is one of the ales that belies the fact that Cascadian Dark Ales are not IPAs.

brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Dark pour with little head. Lightly roasty with a bit of caramel in the nose. Quite roasty flavor with a bit of astringency . Touch of pine hop as well. This does not seem well integrated and the flavors are contrasting and clashing. Medium body dry finish. Not my favorite
