Notes/Commercial Description:
This Cascadian Dark Ale, otherwise know as our Double Black IPA, emerged stylistically from the Pacific North West. It has an IPA backbone with a "special blend" of choice roasted malts combined with a hard hitting matchup of hops, knocking this beer into a new weight class. Dry hopped and unfiltered for maximum flavor and punch. Enjoy it with a trainer!

A: Dark brown like slightly weak coffee; creamy, tan head- almost like it was a nitro pour; slowly dissipated, leaving a ring around the edges; some lacing;

S: My first sense was stale coffee or coffee grounds. As it warmed, I got more dark chocolate.

T: Bittersweet chocolate up front; then coffee, leading to a moderately bitter finish; the roasted malts really come through

M: a little thin for a double, IMHO. Hides the ABV very well. Moderate carbonation.

O: An enjoyable beer, but not special.

Sampled from a 12oz bottle with a date area but nothing notched out.

Black with some light coming through on the edges. A very big beige head (maybe too big). Initially nice hoppy aromas that fade fast leaving some malts to shine through. Nice hop flavors with a mild bitterness and a hint of malt roastiness. Smooth and silky with a moderate carbonation.

A very nice RI beer!

From the 12 fl. oz., bottle. Sampled on February 7, 2014.

The pour is a very dark brown and just about black with a lingering off-white head. Looks like a craft beer,

The aroma is pretty straight forward. Lots on sweetness.

Moderate body


The pour is quite nice with its dark brown to near black color. Lingering off-white head. Really fresh aroma with an good fruit hop character as well as a clean malt note. Licorice. The body is medium. The taste has a kind of malted licorice thing going on but generally smooth.,

Had this up on broadway served with an oven roasted pork dish and it was outstanding. I'm typically a straight-up IPA consumer, but this sat really well with me. I especially enjoy the smooth finish on the back. Must try on tap!

I know it's a black, but since I'm a hop-nut I would have liked a tad more bitterness in the after taste. But, overall a very pleasant dinner brew.
