Pours a nice brownish black with about three fingers of mocha head. Aroma is very malty, chocolate, coffee, with a little cream or vanilla sweetness and a dash of citrus hops. Taste is again malts forward, a well-integrated blend of creamy coffee, chocolate, a nutty bitterness. Hops are second place to the malts, does not taste like an IPA but more like a well-bittered and refreshing dunkel with more floral and leafy aromatics. I taste little citrus but its lurking in there somewhere. Very dry finish and a crisp refreshing character to go with the dark roasty malts. Only had one bottle in my possession and would welcome another.

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.
