Imperial Cascadian Dark Ale
Imperial Cascadian is the NW style of this brew. This is a very well balanced, extremely hoppy black ale. It is very reminiscent of a winter ale. Armored fist is a collaboration beer brewed with the good ole boys from Three Floyd’s Brewing out of Chicago.

From growler filled at Boneyard. Wonderful taste, and I didn’t know about the 3 Floyds connection until I viewed this beer’s ratings. No wonder they have a couple of Dark Lord Day posters in the tasting room. A truly wonderful quaff from a great brewery!

Pours dark with ruby reflexes. Aroma: a very nice aroma of chocolate coupled with caramel, grassy and a touch of herb aromas. Taste: nicely balanced with chocolate counterbalanced by massive hoppiness. Palate is bitter but also a bit fruity. Very nice.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2017 Fresh from the tap at Muted Horn. Color from toasted plums. Very interesting. Black cherry notes. Fine big body.

On tap at TCBW 2017. Dark mahogany coloured with a beige head. Roasty and rather hoppy aroma with pine, licorice, citrus and hints of herbs. Surprisingly fresh and the alcohol is very well integrated. Balanced, quite refreshing and dangerously drinkable.

Three Floyd’s and Boneyard, not a bad collaboration. This is an extremely dark, bitter, and strong beer.

commonmac (1246) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2017
On tap at Apex in Portland for shawtank celebration. Snifter glass. Black with minor tan head and simple lacing. Aroma has vanilla and a little coffee/chocolate (although that could be impacted primarily by the visual). Plenty of hoppy resin notes as well. Taste is a quality balance of bitter chocolate, dark fruit, pine resin, and grapefruit rind. Very well hidden alcohol. Hops provide an impressive bite especially towards the finish. One of the highest ABV black IPAs I’ve tried and it’s also one of the best. Highly recommended. Fist bumps to Boneyard and Three Floyds.

Dark brown color. Clear. Two-fingered, bubbley head with good retention. Aroma is cinnamon,vanilla and resin. Slight peanut butter. Smells clean. Taste piney and sweet. Medium-bodied. Average carbonation. Slightly drawn out bitter finish. Reminds me of a christmas tree. Sticky feel on palate. As much as this reminds me of the winter season i wish it was closer to christmas Lol.

McWorta (1627) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 28, 2016
Deep amber to copper coloured with a creamy off white head. Aromas of caramel, resin, hints of bitter chocolate, fruits and spruce/pine develop. Softly carbonated with a rather crisp, slick and smooth texture offering a medium-full body. Lightly sweet building up a nice hoppy resinous fruit punch. Lasting finish, drying out.

daje (4436) - NORWAY - JUN 6, 2016
On tap at What’s Brewing 2015, day 2. Dark brown body with a small tanned head. Aroma is sweet licorice with roast, faint citric hops. Taste is bittersweet with chocolate and plums, marshmallows and peach. Quite thick body, roasty finish.
