Making the most of this winter seasonal by @saucebrewing While the Melbourne weather is still chilly; the O Cascadia Cascadian Dark Ale - 5.5%.
Pours a deep brown with a cola-like hue and an average sized, tan coloured head.
Boasting a lovely dark malt aroma of toffee, dark chocolate, burnt toast and coffee grounds, as well as orange peels and some big herbal notes of earthy hops, spruce and grass clippings.
Rich, moderately sweet palate showcased my roasted chocolate and caramel malt flavours upfront, some light citrus notes followed by a grassy, piney hop bitterness and some earthy coffee notes making a late appearance for a relatively dry, bitter finish.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation and a slick mouthfeel. Beautiful!
