It is a Cascadian Dark Ale, aka Black IPA. It has a big hop nose and flavor with a great roast finish yet with a light body that allows the hops to come through.
The initial nose is both malty and hoppy at the same time when poured from a cold bottle. Neither trait dominates the nose. The first sip begins very malty, with the essence of dark roasted malt coating the tongue, followed by a bitter hoppy middle. It leads into a clean finish with a hoppy aftertaste followed by a mild warming effect in the mouth and body.

Extra from Steve. Who would expect a dark deep blue bottle would be a black ipa from St. Arnold? Fairly basic, too much roast, overwhelming the hops. Deep black colour, a bit of smoke with the roast aroma. OK drinkability. Yes its there, the cascade hops, the roast, but Mediocre for the style.
