A pinch of black malt and a splash of roasted barley break this IPA apart from tradition, Cascadian Dark. Join the shady revolution.

Cavie (3977) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2010
On tap on FW Gman. Very dark occluded appearance with rosy tints near the edges. Fat hop profile. Very sappy and pine with strong earth currents. Taste is strong sweet hop with a dry undertow. Cereal grains push through on the secondary; almost a fruity pebbles flavor. Aftertaste fills all these in with a dryer than naught finish. Very solid.

Bottle. Pours with a black body and a tan head. Good lace. Aroma of pine, light citrus hops, caramel, light roast, leather and brown sugar. Taste is chocolate, roast, leather, earth, nutshells and pine. Creamy bubbles. Not bad.

Perhaps one of the best to come from them that I have tried to this date. Pours a deep, dark brown, almost black with a nice tan head. Aroma of nice hoppy citrus and light dark roast. Flavor is very much the same way, nice grapefruit and pine notes with a balanced dark roastiness. Mouth feel is pretty solid, medium body with high carbonation. Overall, a pretty tasty little treat from Widmer....I enjoyed!

The aroma is much like your typical IPA. The color is rich and dark as you would expect. The flavor is like a creamier IPA with a hint of chocolate. Very interesting.

Tap. Black pour with a creamy beige head. Looks marvelous. Smells like an IPA, tastes like an IPA, looks like a frothy stout. Taste is mostly pine hop - with a Lagunitas-like creaminess to it. Nice brew.

Tap, JL Beers, Fargo, ND, USA. Deep black colour, frothy beige head. Fresh hop aroma, deceiving for the appearance. Some chocolate on the first sip, then fading to a bitter finish.

Bottle courtesy of kenb in the Mystery Swap v4.0. Pours a clear dark ruby brown with a medium sized tanned beige head. Big pine and citrus, sticky, caramel. Medium bodied, malty, spicy earthy grapefruit pith. Finishes with some light roast, and grapefruit. Tasty, thanks Ken.
