COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Heeding a chorus of voices crying for a dark roasty thing with lots of west coast hops and a higher ABV, we summoned Netherworld from the chaotic flipside of the brewhouse where hybrid is the norm and nothing is ordinary. Hovering just this side of evil, in the right hands, our Cascadian Dark Ale is bizarrely nice with its own entrancing mojo. However, watch out for those who refuse to see the darkness.

crossovert (11796) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2017
355ml bottle. Dark brown pour. This is a good one that is more porter-like. Very robust in cocoa and roasted malt, decent body, some herbal hops, good stuff.

erickok (5628) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2016
Dark brown, creamy head. Spicy rye bread, resin, sweeter berry back notes. Quite rough and a touch watery. But I do like the dark roast and bitter hop combo. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bire)

josanguapo (1309) - SPAIN - OCT 30, 2016
From Cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. After dinner. My new favourite american black ale. Great balance between roastyness and hoppynes, with a very moreish dry finish

mile (3873) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Bottle. Very dark brown, average and mostly lasting light brown head. Moderate, malty and dryish aroma, light caramel and roasted malt - faint burnt malt, faint fruitiness, some citrus/grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and dryish flavor, light - some caramel and roasted malt, faint fruitiness, some citrus - light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, light caramel and some roasted malt - faint burnt malt, faint fruitiness with some citrus - light grapefruit hoppyness. BIPA with caramel and roastiness. Could use more bitterness (and less caramel).

anstei (1458) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 20, 2016
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Lots of chocolate and roast, not so much IPA. Feels more like a stout than a BIPA. Medium roasted body to a light palate, almost refreshing. Hints of hops on the palate. Nice.

BeardedAvenger (434) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2016
Bottle at home. Bought from Saviere Biere (or however you spell it, I did German!). Surprisingly sweet aroma - berries, fruit. Dark brown, ruby comes through when hit by light. Beige head - frothy but only a few mm. Very bitter, all through in to the dry finish. Berries, again, but goosberries and those of a similar sharpness. Light bodied, almost slick. Packs a punch but drinkable. Id echo an earlier rating - could do with some sweetness in there to add balance.

Bosskie (824) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2016
Very dark transparent ruby red bear with a nice big white head. Smell is grapefruit peel and pine with some resin. Hint of caramel and dark fruit. Taste is bitter and dry. Light touch of ash and resin. Astringent sticky finish. Pity theres no sweetness for balance.

mariuspoenari (1929) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2016
33cl bottle. Very dark brown pour with a medium height tan head. Notes of roasted coffee, pine resin, citrus hops, chocolate, roasted malts. Medium body, medium to high carbonation and a roasty and hoppy bitter-sweet finish.
