My first cascadian dark ale, now I've never been a fan of IPAs so I dunno, but you don't become a BA if you have a closed mind.

Appearance: Has the appearance of a Porter, a very dark brown, almost black body that boasts a finger and a half of creamy head. The head makes a bit of lace and sticks around exceptionally well.

Smell: Nothing really bad to complain about, dark roasted porter smelling malts that take the shotgun seat to a big dose of pine and grapefruit hops. It's strange, and I'm probably only giving the extra .5 because it's my first example of the style but it checks out here.

Taste: Hops, Smoke, Hops. Starts with pine hops with a smokey undertone that then get thrown into the back seat by creamy smokey malt who then in turn gets pulled over by the pine hops older brother, grapefruit hops. I normally don't like beer this hoppy, but the well roasted malts really takes the overwhelming bitter wind out of it's sails.

Mouthfeel: The thing I like the best about this beer is the hops don't cloy or stick at the back of my tongue. I know they are there but the well roasted malt seems to battle them to a perfect draw. Carbonation falls a bit flat though near the end and the hops still need to be pulled back a bit.

Overall: Solid, certainly not something I'd want to drink daily but all and all I was pleased. It was far easier going down then any IPA I've had, that's for sure. I'm almost left wondering what kind of dish you could cook with this stuff, given it's balance of hops and smoke.

Final Thoughts: All in all, this was a good experience and I'm glad to see that cascadian dark ale isn't on my unpalatable style list. I don't think the style itself is quite my cup of tea, but I wouldn't say it's something I'd actively avoid. Thumbs Up.

Holly Hops Batman!

The colour is dark brown, nearly black but not opaque. It poured with a head of about one and a half fingers but this quickly dissipated.

The smell was a weird mix of strong pine, some spiciness, some moss/earthy smell, and what I swear was a distinct and strong "herbal" **cough cough** smell.

The taste was hops from start to finish. There was very little discernible malt. Lots of pine/citris flavours with a strong bitter finish.

Really interesting beer but not something I would probably keep around.

2.63/5  rDev -31.2%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured 12oz into pint glass. First taste of Flying Monkeys.

A- Pours very dark. Light comes in around the edges to reveal dark amber colors. Creamy off white head, recedes down to a nice cap on the beer.

S- Not as much to the aroma as I'd like. Slight piney hop aroma. Mixed in are some roasted malts, subtle caramel hints.

T- Again like the nose, would like the flavors to come out more. Hops come out first with some citrus, piney flavors. Citrus hop come through a tad more. Malts come out at the end. Roasted coffee flavors mostly. Again flavors are very subdued.

M- Close to being lighter in body. Lots of carbonation in the mouth.

D- If the flavors were a little more powerful, this would be a nice black IPA. Compared to others, this is my least favorite. Don't know if this may be a little older, would like to try a fresh one to see if I get a different feel.

12oz from the LCBO, pours a dark brown with garnet highlights, a couple fingers of tan head die down to a few whisps which leave patches of lacing down the glass.

Nose is a little bland, citrus hops, cold coffee, roast malts, hints of butter. Sessionable, competent ale.. this time - I've had some bad bottles. Roasted malts, coffee, hints of anise, pine and citrus hops, moderate bitterness in the finish. A little on the thin side, could use some malt complexity and depth to balance out the finish. Pleasant enough and the only of its kind in the LCBO.

Bottle: Poured a clear dark color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of bitter and citrus hops with light roasted malt notes. Taste is a lot more bitter and citrusy then most other Ontario beer out there. Body is halfway full with good carbonation. Well brewed and not something I would avoid revisiting in the near future.

Another innovative offering from my now favorite Ontario Craft Brewery.

A: Netherworld pours quite dark. a dark opaque brown with a billowy off-white head that leaves a lot of lacing.

S: Quite a bit of citrusy hops on a pale malt backbone -- not as roasty as i expected. A little cherry and sandlewood.

T: Fires up quite fruity and gets fairly bitter when the hops take the wheel. There's enough roasty goodness in the back seat of this though to keep things on track. Slight metallic off flavor towards the finish-line.

M: A little thin and acidic feeling. Smooth and not too sticky. Carbonation is a little high and artificial.

D: A good sessionable beer with very few and controlled off flavors. It must be said I've had this a few times now and generally liked it more than this current sample. Perhaps the bottle is a little on the aged side.

Well done Flying Monkeys!

Dark brown in colour and mostly opaque with ruby highlights. Maintains a good cover of beige head and leaves some good lacing.

Lots of hops with both citrus and earthiness coming out; pine and grapefruit balanced with some nice roasted malt.

For an Ontario beer this stuff is pretty flavourful and well balanced. Lots of hops, showing a good blend of IPA-like citrus and more earthy varieties. Under the hops lies some full-bodied roasted malt. Grapefruit, pine, roasty malt, dark chocolate and just enough caramel to perfectly balance everything out. The finish is mildly drying with some lingering grapefruit pith. It's not a complex brew but the few elements found here are expertly blended.

Maybe a little on the thin side for my liking, though it's not distracting. Medium-light body with light carbonation.

Very drinkable, I could easily down a sixer of this stuff. The body might be a bit thin but this only aids in drinkability. This is great stuff, one of the better beers I've had out of Ontario.

A: Beautiful deep dark red, with a little bit of head that dissipates quickly.

S: Roasted malts, with dark roasted coffee and chocolate aromas that follow. Little bit of caramel there too.

T: Can really taste the roasted malts upfront, with some dark roasted coffee and caramel that follows. Can taste a bit of citrus too. Finishes with a mellow dryness. Nicely balanced considering the many different flavours. Overall very delicious.

M: Slight carbonation. Not as thick/viscous as I was hoping for but still very agreeable.

D: Very easy to drink. Nice to have a local brew with these flavours thats of the ale variety. Will certainly be picking up more of this in the future.

I was really happy to find this on the shelf at the liquor store.

Netherworld doesn't at all look like the starless, shadowy black void its name might suggest, but rather has a worn-in brown leather kind of complexion that I'm thinking would look great as a sofa in my living room. It isn't close to opaque either; modest but accomplished highlights are stoked against the light. And its head is showing great vital signs.

These uber-hoppy dark ales - the good ones, anyhow - have an ambrosial aura that is rivaled only by that of fresh-baked cookies or a meat roast coming out of the oven. (In other words, I wouldn't hesitate to put it up there with my favourite foods.) Indeed, these malts smell like they spent some time in the kiln as they impart a sweet, nutty toast. And the hops, well...

Let me tell you! They bring a great vivacity to the beer: a piny brine, earthy leafiness and herbal pungency, all of which hit the senses with a lively and vivid zeal like that of fresh peppermint. A drop of citrus too. Their bitterness is well balanced in the body and most of their zest is retained in the aroma (which is not a bad place for it at all!)

While it isn't anywhere as thick as a porter, it is of a substantial weight and, depending on your appetite, has enough roasty and coffee-ish flavours to satisfy after one, or be continuously enjoyed several at a time. The hops chosen have a drying, pithy, incredibly piny linger that makes me want to suck my gums until they bleed. Delightful.

It's like in an Avatar-inspired moment, the Flying Monkeys brewery colonized an enchanted forest of elves and made them all start mining it for its magical pine serum and cocoa nibs. Imagine citric morning grapefruit combined with gritty coffee grinds. Sweet caramel chew combined with tobacco chew. Bitter herbal tea blended into hot chocolate.

Netherworld isn't really here nor there; in fact, it's kind of everywhere. It has plenty of sweet, nutty, roasty, chocolaty character to satisfy while simultaneously brimming with near-spicy, vivacious, enchanting hop flavours too. What else needs to be said? Brilliant! I'm elated to have this offering available locally and plan to keep buying more.

Not certain how to classify this beer, as different batches have suited everything from a black APA / IPA to a hoppy porter to the current "Cascadian dark"... Either way, a delightfully easy to drink beer!

Complex aroma and taste, with elements of burnt/smokey malts and coffee flavours plus roasted malt sweetness and a hoppy bitter finish. Earlier versions (before recipe finalized i.e. prior to LCBO consistency) had a greater hop emphasis, which would have been my own personal preference, but this is now a very approachable beer.

It should appeal to many differmnt audiences and congratulations to Flying Monkeys for once again giving the taste buds of "Ontario Beer Lovers" a chance to stretch.

Pours a dark black with a decent amount of foam in the Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Tastes of slight hop bitterness with a roasty like finish. Drinks down ok and the bitterness is alright for the most part. Could use a little more punch to the flavour though. Overall its a highly sessionable beer and perfect for going to a friends place for a day of drinking.

I have picked up quite a few more six packs since my first review. And this beer is growing on me. Its quite solid, and I like the little bit of roastyness and caramal taste it has in the finish. This has definately become my go to beer here in Ontario due to lack of options.

Frankly I´m a little surprised by the high scores on this beer. The very first thing I noticed was how much it looks like I just poured a glass of Coke. Just about the same colour and the head is spot on.

However, I had very high hopes when I smelled the bitter cascade hops infused into this brew. The hints of spice and burnt sugar piqued my interest so I dove right in...

And nothing. My expectations dashed, I quickly tried to piece together exactly what was bothering me about the taste. Everything you´d expect from a stout was there except for the full body. The sweetness seemed burnt away, like the edge of a baked treat that stayed in the oven too long. But the coffee was what really stood out, and unfortunately it doesn´t mix well with hops.

This beer has above average creaminess and feels quite good in the mouth despite its apparent lack of carbonation.

I´m sure this beer will appeal to a large number of people, but I´m not one of them. The marriage of coffee and hops wasn´t meant to be - in my stomach.

Pours a dark-brownish-red, fluffy head that leaves lacing on the glass but dissipated quickly.

Smells of molasses and roasted malts.

Tastes of coffee bean and burnt brown sugar. Mild hop and citrus notes with a little carbonation. A dry, bitter finish. Very nice.

A nice dessert beer, seems more like a porter than a black ale. Would pair nice with dark chocolate, figs and sharp cheeses.

Thanks to liamt07 for sending me this one. I wanted to try this.

Black color beer, very dark too. Almost like a stout, it doesn't look creamy as a stout. Brown head which sticks well to the glass. Aroma is hoppy like an IPA. Notes of pines and citrus, with some light notes of grapefruits. Some chocolate and roasted malts there too. Nice aroma, very inviting. Taste is very interesting... very good too. It starts piney and finish with roasted malts. Wow I like this and can't stop drinking. Medium body with a very well balanced taste and aroma. A very good beer in my book. Easy to drink. It would gain by being a little more creamy...

Well I like this beer a lot. Very well done.

Pours a cola-like dark ruby colour with a nice, creamy head not unlike a root beer float that leaves some nice, distinctly layered lacing.

Spicy aroma with syrupy and toasted malt tones and a generous helping of a crisp, grapefruit-like citrus.

The taste of Netherworld is malty and slightly sweet with syrup, coffee and toasted cocoa tones, as well as a subtle cherry or plum-like fruit flavour.

The beer is noticeably carbonated, but still a bit watery on the tongue, though there is a nice oily quality as well. The finish carries a nicely-balanced, solid bitterness and the aftertaste is slightly sweet and spicy with a soft banana note and a piny flavour.

A nice example of the style that has solid toasted and bitter characteristics, but maintains a certain brightness. Easy to drink a few on their own or with salty, spicy or fatty foods.

Somehow I haven't revieved this beer yet, even though I've had several pints of this. Had this on tap at C'est What. Pours a very dark brown colour with thin tan head. Nice lacing down the glass. Smells of a lot of roasted malt with some coffee, but with a big citrus hop kick. Nice bitterness balanced out with a sweet malt. Smooth carbonation level. This is one of my favourite CDA's, I'm glad it is local so I have access to it.

I am not sold on the idea of Black IPA / Cascadian Ales.. its always seemed like a forced marriage to me. Since when has coffee and or chocolate gone well with citrus fruits? You know what this grapefruit needs? Some chocolate! Yea.. of course it does. That said I have had a number of them and this one is, style wise, decent enough and a very bold move for an Ontario brewery.

Pours black with a head that quickly recedes leaving some lacing behind. The smell is a bit hard to track down.. alternating between chocalate/coffee and the grapefruit hops.

And the taste has similar attributes.. part malty chocolate / coffee finished up with some decent IPA style hops. Sweetness is minimal and bitterness is emphasized here.

Mouthfeel is light but not very smooth.
Drinkability is average.

pours a very dark brown colour with a hint of red that gives lots of tan head.

hops were very present in the smell which also had a roasted aroma - possibly coffee and/or chocolate.

taste also very hoppy yet has a porter/stout feel to it - quite delicious. good carbonation and drinkability. really impressed by this one and will definitely be picking up some more.

Pours a dark chestnut brown with a reddish tinge. Very nice brownish-white head with lots of lacing.

Smells of wonderful flowery hops, some citrus zest and dark roasty malts.

Upon trying this beer again further down the road, it's actually better than I remember it being. Some nice roasty, caramel and chocolatey malts upfront. Sort of a thin body but the hops kick in with a nice finish, nice and bitter.

Rather thin mouthfeel, but decently carbonated. This is a very good black IPA and very drinkable. Definately better than Hoptical Illusion!

12oz Bottle

Appearance - The beer pours a dark brown/black colour with a very large frothy beige coloured head. I can't see much carbonation due to the darkness of the beer and there is some very nice lacing running in stages down the sides of the glass. The head lasted for several minutes before it began to dissipate.

Smell - hops, malts, roasted/toasted notes

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation on the tongue and it comes across as slightly watery. It feels nice and light however and most of the taste is made up malts and light hops. There are also notes of light chocolate and light coffee. It finishes with a malty aftertaste and a light bitterness from the hops..

Drink - A really highly drinkable beer that feels more like a ESB than a IPA to me. I wish it packed a little more punch, but it's still nice to see Canada is putting out some decent brews.

341 fl oz served in a chilled glass

Appearance - beer pours a dark auburn colour that allows some light through. It is hard to tell the carbonation level due to the darkness. The head i about one finger and is an off-white. Some minimal lacing.

Smell - was not expecting this, but the hops and pine are definite smells that come fwd. There is a slight caramel smell as well. The other smell is the citrus base, from grapefruit.

Taste - As the smell, hops and pine are dominant taste to this beer. I am actually quite surprised, but the citrus comes through as well. Compared to the smell, i pick up some coffee taste, something i did not pick up in the scent. Lingering aftertaste too.

Mouthfeel - slight levels of increased carbonation bring the coffee flavour fwd a little more. The beer maintains its taste as well adds a decent amount of fullness.

Drinkability - was not expecting this from this beer and had no idea what to expect. This is a great beer that i picked up in the Holiday Mixer pack at the LCBO. Awesome find for a Tuesday night!

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from 33cl bottle into Delirium Tremens tulip.

Colour is dark brown with hints of ruby in light.

Aroma is top-heavy with citrus, and though some cocoa and maltiness comes through on the tail, I fear already that this will be a very one-dimensional brew (not unlike Hoptical Illusion)

Taste confirms fear, and citrus notes become almost overwhelming as it warms, hint of resin lingers on back of palette for a long time.

Mouthfeel is average for the style, though does leave much to be desired on the tail. I'd even go so far as to say that it gets a bit watery and thin as the citrus blast subsides.

Overall, much like their hoptical illusion, this beer seems to be in two minds, and is rendered mediocre accordingly. The hop characteristics are certainly interesting, but with the lack of supporting characters, are almost offputting in their solo role. For this reason, despite the style, I found this beer to be more sessional than their lower abv hoptical illusion.

This beer has potential, and some stronger malts would definitely round out the hop character and add complexity. Regarding the good reviews amassed, I find myself questioning their origin: objectivity or optimism.

This beer has had a long evolution from the substandard iteration I had a year ago to its current bottled form.

Pours a deep brown, black in the core, but brown and ruby at the edges. A finger of light tan foam sets up shop and lingers for most of the drink, laying down some good streaks of lace. Juicy grapefruit aroma, with a prominent bitter chocolate backing. Perhaps some limited roast. Good, but could do with a bit more depth and complexity. Pleasant flavour bounces between grapefruit in one sip, and chocolate / light coffee roast in the next. Its an interesting take on the style, but lacking in intensity both on the hops and the roast, and while the bitterness is pleasant, it falls far short of even a regular IPA. Medium body and carbonation works well.

Pleasant and sessionable. I'd consider buying this a few times a year, but its not the miracle brew that some in the province would have you believe. Sure, its a good offering compared to many of the things made by local craft brewers, but that doesn't make it an outstanding example of the style. As an Ontario beer this gets a big thumbs up, but as a black IPA, its probably still one of the weakest examples I've had in spite of all its good points.

Huge kudos for actually trying this and getting it into the lcbo though.
