A very nice Cascadian Dark Ale (Black IPA) brewed with Governor’s Cup coffee. Very nice dark malt flavor.
Medium brown, thin head. Light roast and a bit of fruity hop on the nose. Bitter, light coffee, fruity hop note. Good balance.

Deep brown with a tan head. Roasted malts I. Top of a mildly bitter IPA. A bit earthy. Not too heavy in any direction. Solid. Sledutah (7978) - Utah, USA - MAR 19, 2017
12oz can picked up at Total Wine in Spokane poisoneddwarf (2690) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Pours clear cola with a medium beige head, some lacing. Aroma of coffee, doughy and pine. Flavor of toasted malts, bready, grapefruit and pine
12 oz can. Love the name on this. Aroma is coffee, green pepper, dough, pine, wet stone, vanilla, dark bread crust. Pours dark brown--nearly black--with a one finger beige head that falls after a minute. Taste starts out sweet with the vanilla notes before some medium-high bitterness sets in and lingers; lots of coffee and green pepper (always a good thing with me) notes. Perfectly carbonated creamy mouthfeel. Great beer and pushing the envelope with this style. douglas88 (9797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Can. Pours a dark brown color with a medium off white head. A nice soft citrus, ash, chocolate and coffee nose. The flavor is rich sweet coffee, clear citrus, some pine. Light roast. This works quite well. Very good.

Portland International Airport - Made in Oregon Store - 22 oz bomber. Dark black as tar pour with a thick frothy off-white head, nice sticky lacing. Aroma is doughy with hints of chocolate and light whiffs of spruce. Flavor has some heated pepper notes, some faint citrus bitterness, hints of chocolate. Thick sticky mouthfeel - overall excellent. A steal at around $5 - how can beer be so cheap in Oregon? andrewje41 (4532) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2016
12 oz can poured. This is probably the least weird beer from these guys I’ve ever had. And still, this is very unique. A dark bronze pour with a rocky foam head. Huge roasted malt and coffee aroma, which almost leads to a green pepper like reminder. Toasty. Coffee bean roasted up front flavor, with the same green pepper indicator in the flavor. A good chocolate flavor that sits behind. Has a just under harsh bitterness to round it out. Fun and unique beer overall. Clever name. Interesting to say the least. bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Can. Brown-black beer with a tan head. Chocolate and grapefruit aroma. Coffee and light grapefruit flavor. Medium bodied. Coffee and light roast lingers with light grapefruit. Dogbrick (14326) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Sample at the Salem brewpub. Dark brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of roast malt, pine and hops. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, resiny hops and coffee. The finish is roasty malt and coffee up front with a mildly hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall. chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Cascadian Dark Ale brewed with coffee..
12 oz can with 6.4% ABV
Clear dark brown body with a tan head.
Moderately bitter overall and a bit higher in the aftertaste, with burnt coffee and grapefruit (hops) both contributing.
Overall: too bitter and too much burnt coffee and char.
