Found this pareusing at TW, let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a waft of dark malt and noble hops. Pouring the bomber into a pint I get an opaque super deep brown with a two finger beige head. On the taste this brew has a deep chocolate bitter hoppy molasses taste that finishes balanced then sweet and tart. Tough to say why it was discontinued. Glad to find a bomber and imbibe.

CDA= Double Cascadian Dark Ale
From a 1 Pint 6 Fl oz bottle purchased at Total Wine 7/3/15, so
"retired" "no longer available" update needed.
A strong and hoppy dark (black?) ale.
I recommend to non hop heads who enjoy some hoppyness in something other than a pale ale.
