fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Black color with small compact brownish head. Strong aroma of roasted malts, coffee, light ashes, light bread. Lean body, soft mouthfeel, off-dry in the front; nice roasted malt flavor, some dark chocolate. Not too ashy; there is a touch of liquorice; a bit dusty in the final; strong bitterness, with a reasonable share of hop resins.
Nice example, well drinkable.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
Thanks, Alex! Dark brown, rich chocolatey/fudgey aroma with a splash of coffee. Bittersweet character, lots of bitter chocolate, just a touch of nuttiness and a lingering bitter finish. Really good example.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Bottle:   Fairly black, but moreso a very very dark cola, thin frothy light beige head, so-so lacing.   Faint roastiness on the nose, a bit of dark chocolate and minor pasture.   Hops arent terribly strong with this one, at least on the nose.   On the tongue its moreso the hops versus the malts on the aroma.   A little lactic, very minor, otherwise very minor citrusy hops.   Seems a lighter example, despite the bottle saying Imperial Cascadian Dark Ale.   Seems pretty clean, well balanced, but not very Imperial.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not very big, but clean and fairly flavorful.   Hard to believe this is 8.4%.   Its like a Cascadian Pale Ale.

after4ever (6055) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2011
22. Pours black with a creamy but very scant off-white head. Loose sheets of lace coming down the sides. Big toasty nose, a little bit of baker’s chocolate in there, along with nice resiny pine notes. Creamy medium body, a little watery in spots, soft carb. Toasty, roasty, ashy, beef jerky mid palate. Long bitter finish. Dark and heavy flavors carried by a fairly light body.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
2/25/12. Bottle shared at RBWG 2012. Dark brown pour with a nice khaki head. Hoppy aroma with touches of graininess and roast. Hops jump to the forefront - fresh and American - with lingering roast and smooth chocolate.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2012
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a black / dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, citrus hops, and some toasted bread. Flavour of roasted malt to start, followed by nice, bitter citrus hops. Medium-bodied with a roasty, hoppy finish.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2013
22oz bottle. Dark brown / red color. Still clear on the edges. Thin khaki head. Good spread and ropes of lace. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Bigger body. Lightly sticky finish. Lightly dry. Bigger bitter taste, moderate sweet. Bigger roasty malt, some molasses, light dark chocolate. Some piney hop. Solid black IPA. Besides the pronounced, lightly cloying sweetness, 8.4% worked solidly.
