Cascadian Dark Ale, Whoops! Sorry Steamworks, Christmas Dark Ale MMMmmm. Another Seasonal offering from Parallel 49 and the one of the ones i was hoping to see in the pack. It pours a beautiful black colour with brownish head. It smells of rich sweet dark roast malts and i’m honestly stoked to try it again. Tasting it the first thing you notice is the sweetness of the malt, and of course this beer is malt heavy. Next comes the roastiness which becomes part of the flavour profile, this tastes are bookended with a robust bitterness the give the whole thing a real closure. Of course beer is subjective, and Cascadian Dark Ale is one of my favourite styles. Although i like this beer and this style its not among the best i’ve had but is a solid offering none the less.
Parallel 49 Christmas Dark Ale- 3.5/5
