COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We never saw the point of sucking up to Santa all year long for a couple of measly presents. If drinking this hoppy, toasted malt CDA puts us on the naughty list, where do we sign up?

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, - NOV 27, 2012
(650ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors for $6.60. Pours a quick dissipating beige head atop a black body. Nose of resiny pine hops. Good hop front with a cream dark malt flavour. My first bottled Parallel 49 brew, and Im very satisfied.

Dark brown color, near black, medium sized beige head. Lean Brown Ale with bready malts, some rye bread, delicate fruity esters, and moderate resiny hops; yes, there are differences between CDA and Black IPA. Good beer.

rubyroo (125) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 3, 2016
Aroma of fruity citrus hops, toasted malt and pine, flavour follows. with a hint of chocolate. Palate is medium bodied with a bitter and slight acrid aftertaste. Overall- an enjoyable Cascadian Dark Ale that is well balanced.

bulldogops (2320) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2015
Rating #1387 13.12.2014 341mL Bottle #13 in the CC/P49 Mystery Box Pours jet black with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is a violent clash between toasted malt, and floral piney hops. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant coffee, chocolate, burnt sugar sweetness that disguises any alcohol on the palate and rounds out the hoppy bitterness, and is beyond refreshing. Unreal hoppy black beauty.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
Pours an almost opaque black with a frothy and lacey light brown head. Aroma of juicy citrus hops, coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and pine...all in a good balance. Some grain huskiness present. Taste is roasted malts, juicy citrus hops, coffee, chocolate, pine and light nuttiness. Great cascadian thats in good balance but the grain husk in the aroma is throwing it off.

DuffMan (9645) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle, advent calendar 2014. Very dark brown, beige head, nice lacy retention. Citrus and hints of wood, dark roast, terrifically balanced, almost juicy hop character. A very pleasant surprise here!

darrennelson12 (455) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
In bottle ... this was OK. Not really an IPA fan, so I found this to be more hoppy than I would like, especially in a darker beer. I would not buy again

RCx240 (198) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Pours deep, dark black, almost opaque. Thin, foamy tan head, low retention and no lacing. Aroma is pine, resin, molasses, and fresh roasted coffee. Taste is bitter, resinous, and earthy. Finishes bitter,roasty and lingering. Body is medium, texture is slightly oily, carbonation is soft. Pretty good. Im happy to see this style slowly become more common.

AgentAle (1568) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
Aroma is clove, citrus, caramel, roasted malts and caramel. Taste is similar to aroma with some added bitterness that is fairly well balanced. Appearance is a black body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.
