I often walked past this intriguing little colourful bottle in my local MLCC. Been meaning to try this beer for quite sometime. Anyway cut to the chase, i purchased one and very glad that I did.
On opening the bottle, the slight smell of Coffee and slight wiff off chocolate greet you. Also a wonderful smell off malts. Enjoying it already and not even tasted it yet!
The pouring of the beer produced swirling tones of brown and amber shades, finished off with a nice decent creamy head.
Now for the taste, the earlier smell off chocolate and coffee were now evident with my first taste, and the malts kicked in seconds later. I am enjoying this!
Mouthfeel excellent, a slight bubbly feel if that makes sense.
Overall I really enjoyed this delightful Dark Ale. I will not be walking past this little rascal again. Well worth a try.

Appearance - Pours a dark ruby brown with a finger width of beige head.
Smell - Leafy and piney hops, coffee bean, roasted malts, hint of vanilla bean.
Taste - Bold roasted flavours of malts and coffee bean up front, along with the hops and hint of vanilla. Roasted flavour lingers in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall - An interesting take on the Cascadian by adding so much roasted/coffee bean character to it. A bit malt heavy and I would like to taste more hops in this.

Poured from the bottle into a Carlsberg tulip tall pint glass. From notes.
A very dark walnut black body with a very yellow three finger head. Big retention on the head, with circular rings of lace.
Nose is a great citrus grapefruit zest and flesh. Hop forward almost west coast sense, maybe even north west style. Little roast character it seems, but a great hop front. Incredibly fruity.
Palate does an almost 180 on the hop front. Hop angle comes out with juice orange and tea herbal bitters. Malt roast character a little bit on the finish, with a good black tea like finish. Light bodied palate with some juicy character.
Overall I have never had a black ipa smell and taste like this and be so varied. It seems liie a mix of American and English IPA style in a black ale. Very memorable, love it!

Pours a dark brown colour with about two fingers of an offwhite head that disipates rathery quickly. Smells of cocoa, earthy/citrus hops, roasted malt, coffee and sweet molasses. The taste follows the smell with chocolate and cocoa. Reminds me a bit of a stout. Little bit of coffee bitterness. Some caramel and malt sweetness. Bitter, earthy and citrus hops. Slightly grassy aftertaste. Roasted, bready malts and a bit of nuttyness. Medium light, carbonated, dry mouthfeel. Definitly worth having again.
