3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin head on a dark copper colored body.
Smell is a faint dark fruit, mostly plum.
Taste is dark fruit sweetness with mild bitterness. Good balance.
Slightly fizzy texture, moderate carbonation and medium body, but with a sticky feeling.
Nice with good flavors, though lacking in the aroma area.
Bottle picked up at Total Wine, which is my "out of season, but still good, local craft" superstore. Not the first, and certainly won’t be the last. A darker amber pour with a rocky foam head. Mild aroma of caramel malt, oak, and the slightest hinted hop impression. Flavor is a slightly rich, dusty caramel malt, with another wood note. A solid winter ale I’m sure, but this is doing just fine in the sun watching baseball. Quite the tasty session strong ale here. This would be a fine addition to the year round lineup.

Pours cloudy dark amber with a small off-white head, light lacing. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit and chocolate. Flavor of toasted malts, bready, grapefruit and pine resin
pours from bottle a dark auburn with barely noticeable head. aromatics are of spices, winter, spruce, alcohol, and leather. the flavors follow the same path with the addition of dark fruits, particularly plums and prunes. i wish they’d have a rating for beer name, because slippery slope’s one of the better winter ones i’ve seen. beastiefan2k (4073) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2015
12oz bottle poured into goblet glass Augustign goblet. Clear and dark ruby color. Lacing covers the surface of the beer. This is an Americanized English Strong Ale or maybe a session American Strong Ale. Aroma is unsugary slightly spoiled fruit maltiness. Its almost a bit barleywine-like. There is a bit of toasted malt. Nothing overpowering but strong. Flavor is sweet dark fruits at first and it fades quickly to an earthy malt with a faint generic hop end. Lightly sweet but unsugary, low hop character, well restrained but strong dark fruit presence. Its like a mini barleywine. Cascade Lakes is 2 for 2 with me, I’m always not expecting much but am very pleasantly surprised. Crit (4049) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014

On tap at Bend pub. Pours out a pale crisp copper topped with a white head. Nose is cardboard grass and sweetness. Taste is as the nose but with a good caramel sweetness. jandd1983 (4550) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - AUG 30, 2014
It poured a bright copper color with a beige head. The aroma was of bread, malts, hops and maybe a hint of cocoa. The taste was bready, a little chocolate, some more malts and hops. Nice. Thanks Hayduke! Strykzone (7586) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This beer is deep amber and has just a little beige ring. The aroma is malty, chocolatey, and syrupy. The first sip brings a lot of grain. Citrus hops add some brightness and zest. Light notes of nuts and syrup. Late I get pine and some kind of spice. Dark fruit and then chocolate syrup in the finish. An interesting beer. It went trough a few style changes and that was fun. hayduke (5619) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 13, 2014

I sense a spice or two, plus caramel and pine. Yes tastes spicy too, ginger & coriander, plum, lemon. The off white head fades quickly amber-brown a little cloudy.
